Collectibles (Rock Digging) Rework (Slower/Harder)

REQUIRES THE XML INJECTOR MOD (since March'23)!

Collectibles (Rock Digging) Rework (Slower/Harder) 

I made a tuning mod which overrides some interactions and objects to makes collecting a little bit harder because making money in sims 4 is way to easy.

You'll not always get Collectibles. There is a chance to get a Bottle instead which you can sell for 1$.

For digging the weighting is: Crytsals etc. = 6, Treasure Map = 1, Bottle = 8
For digging deeper the weighting is: Crytsals etc. = 2, Bottle = 1
For digging even deeper the weighting is: Crytsals etc. = 5, Bottle = 1

The chance to get a Bottle when digging is higher, but the deeper you dig the higher the chance to get something with value. 

What else is changed:

  • Added two more options for digging “Dig deep” & “Dig even deeper”. See below for more infos.
  • Changed the Animation to the weeding Animation (see Picture) because the original digging animation didn’t fit anymore. It looked weird when the sim digs for 3mins and then stands anround for the rest of the time
  • Changed the money loot you get when you sell Collectibles to the Simsonian Museum (150-250$ to 300-500$; 750-1250$ to 2.250-3.750$; 1.500-2.500$ to 7.500-10.000$)
  • The Time Capsule itself, the Treasure Map and broken Fossils are set to 0$
  • Digging in Sixam World/ Jungle Adventure Vacation World/ Scientist Career Lot not affected
  • Crystal Creations DLC: Adjusted Recipes for Jewelry to fit the new Values of Crystals etc more
