No More Wants, Whims and Fears [UI Icons]
Note: Always remember to backup your saves when testing Mods to the game
This is a mod to “fix” the desired functionality of “Hide Wants and Fears” so that the bubbles in the bottom left of the UI are hidden/turned off. This is a known EA bug that the bubbles will reappear when you are travelling or even going to/from the Manage Worlds menu.
It is a little hacky so always remember to backup your saves and game data. I have added it to mine and been testing- and also tested removing it and all seems fine.
When testing this I do assume you have “Show Wants & Fears” disabled in the game settings but it isnt required as this mod should be a permanent “off” (until you remove it).
Therefore if you enable “Show Wants & Fears” in your game settings it wont actually show until you remove this mod.
There are 2 variations to this mod – one turns off Fears completely (replicating the No Fears side of things), and the other just gets rid of the UI bubble prompts with Fears working as default in terms of their trigger chances and moodlets/traits.
I have not labelled this as a game fix because I havent hooked into the original system UI to toggle on/off the bubbles, although I do have a better understanding about what the original bug is in terms of why EA havent fixed it.
Desired installation steps will be to add this mod to your game, go to the Game Settings UI and set Show Wants and Fears to disabled then Save.
This can be used safely against other mods like MCCC or WW as far as I have tested so far.
