requested a mod to remove the red line and pause thing from the interface (see her request here
), something that also annoys the bejeezus out of me. So after a bit of hunting in the ui.package, I came up with a solution.This mod should prove useful to custom content creators, contest-junkies, story-tellers, and film-makers. Basically anyone who uses something other than the in-game camera to grab screen-captures.Attention!
May conflict with other User Interface mods.Installation:
Extract the file from the RAR, then install by placing in the Downloads folder.Un-Installation:
Delete the file (no-red-pause-mod.package) from your Downloads folderNotes:
When you click in the top left corner the game may or may not pause depending on what expansion pack, fix-patch, and platform version of the game you are using; use the Pause|Break
key on your keyboard for a quick replacement should the corner-click no longer work.
The replacement images were made by replacing the TGA original images (uncompressed with 8-bit alpha channel format) with transparent PNGs of identical size. This mod has been tested with The Sims 2 (only), University EP, Nightlife EP, Open for Business EP, Pets EP, Seasons EP, Bon Voyage EP, and all the stuff packs.Credits:
