With Gone Viral you can start an outbreak in the actions category when you click on your active sim, they will gain a patient zero buff which has reduced effects from the regular virus and lasts for a shorter amount of time. to spread the virus and gain the virus buff you’ll need patient zero to get close to another sim to infect them. in the actions category you can also vaccinate a sim for specific types of viruses which will remove the virus buff and grand immunity from that type of virus unless the trait is removed

I think this should depend on the sim’s personality although I’m not sure how it would be implemented. Someone like an active sim should feel uncomfortable, tense or sad. A Lazy sim should feel Happy. These are a few examples though

Gluttony could also depend on certain sims too.

I can technically set this based on traits but the more traits I include the more likely it is that a sim gets multiple buffs which would cause problems. as for gluttony I think I’ve already decided on Dazed because I want it to be more of a trance like thing

Would you know how to modify the pregnancy stage buff to replace it for a stuffed buff when overeating? That way it’s temporary like a 1 hour buff for stuffed and a 2 hour buff for overstuffed that then transitions to stuffed when it expires? Also stuffed could use pregnancy stage 1 and overstuffed pregnancy stage 2. This is so the sim gets a big belly when eating a lot. Just not sure if that’s possible.

someone else has already done that, the mod is in mod sharing in the sims weight gain community discord

version 0.2 is now fully out : D

next update is going to add the gluttony viruses, weight gain virus lore, more treatment options, and the cure all cheat if I can get it working

This is perfect! I can see my mad scientist vampire with a taste for high cholesterol, testing this on his subject without being infected himself.

0.3.1 will have the rest of the gluttony viruses. feedback on the prototype will be greatly appreciated

Can you (or do you plan on) making it so you can trigger Patient 0 on another Sim other than your own?
I played with a similar mod in Sims 3, and it was a fun scenario to see how long it took for my own Sim to get infected.

I want to add a way to give patient 0 to a random sim but in sims 4 you can only add buffs to sims loaded on the lot. allowing you to do interactions on other sims is probably coming with the virology career.

That was one of the reasons I always liked Sims 3 over 4. I just wish Sims 3 ran better. Even on modern hardware it doesn’t run well because it was all single-threaded.
