wiebenor, Hello! Unfortunately, the mod has not been updated for a long time ... Therefore, most likely it is not compatible! I have a lot of work so far, so I can't update mods yet. Steam also disabled direct mod downloads for other games, which broke my automatic mod update system.
Forgive me for saying, but this mod doesn't work with the wicked whims mod and I'd like this functionality to be able to be used concurrently to, and with, wicked whims... There's supposedly clothing mods a guy can do, to enable something similar to the nudity I expect, but I have no clue how to mod clothes in Sims 4, and it's made to sound complicated when most people give directions, or they barely tell you anything besides the fact that it's as easy as"edit form fitting clothes and you're done"... Need to at LEAST get this mod working with wicked whims enabled...
- Adds the mechanics of breaking the locks of doors, windows and cars using a bobbypin or crowbar. Lockpicking is done with mini-games!
- Adds a mini-game of lockpicking ignition using wires. Also, the ignition lock can be broken with a bobbypin and a screwdriver.
- Adds the ability to check the alarms of home and cars
- Adds the "Lockpicking" skill.
- Adds the Lockpicking perk and expands the Burglar profession
To check the alarm, read the "Alarm for Dummies" magazine. Next, to check the house alarm, right-click on the window/door and select the menu item. To check the car alarm, select an item in the radial menu while standing at the car hood.
- In order to start lockpicking you need to read the "Lockpicking for Dummies" magazine. To lockpick doors/windows, right-click on them and select lockpick. To break with a bobbypin, you need a bobbypin and a screwdriver. For breaking with a crowbar - a crowbar.
- Also, your skill level should match the difficulty level of the lock. I recommend pumping the skill on easy locks (starting with very easy ones).
- To hack a car, go to the door that you want to open and select an item in the radial menu. (the item will appear only if the door is locked)
- When breaking with a bobbypin, you can try to unlock the lock by force if you are in a hurry. But the chance of success is small.
- Mini-game lockpicking with a bobbypin - Similar to the logic of lockpicking from Fallout/Skyrim. You need to choose the desired angle of the bobbypin and turn the lock
- Mini-game breaking with a crowbar - You need to press the Space bar in time to open the door faster.
- Mini-game finding 2 ignition wires - you need to find 2 wires from the lower wires and connect them.
- Now you can lockpick the ignition lock with a bobbypin (if your skill level matches the difficulty of the lock)
- Lockpicking magazine
- Alarm magazine
- Homemade bobbypin (made from paper clips (You need a screwdriver for this!))
Play with pleasure :D
