Collectibles (Rock Digging) Rework (Slower/Harder)

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.

>>><<<
Rock Digging (Metals, Fossils, Crystals, Treasures)
>>><<<

  • 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$)
  • The Time Capsule itself, the Treasure Map and unextracted Fossils are set to 0$
  • Digging in Sixam World not inculded yet

  1. Hey, just wanted to let you know this mod may need to be updated again for Cats & Dogs… with it installed, my I couldn’t click at all on any rocks or anything to dig/bring up a menu.

  2. Hi, I love this mod and I had an idea:
    is it possible to make this with skilling?
    for example:
    lvl 1-4 sims can only dig normally
    lvl 5-7 they can dig deep
    lvl 8-10 they can dig more deep

    would be great 🙂
