The guide we've all been waiting for has finally arrived! In fact, today we will explain how to remove the plumbobs of the Sims, ideal for those who love to create Machinima or makes panoramic photos! ;)
What we Need?
-Windows 32bit Users-
C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin
-Windows 64bit Users-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin
Before you proceed, remember to make a backup copy of the file in a separate folder or on the desktop, so in case of trouble you can always restore the original values of the game without having to re-install the game!
File to be Open
Once inside the Bin folder, open the Default.ini file using Notepad
The numbers represent the RGBA values, in the specific:
playeractivecolor = RED: 00:43, GREEN: 0.78, BLUE: 0.12, ALFA (Transparency): 1.00 # green
Changing the values so you can display different colors for plumbobs, great for special effects I like the Blue and then I could change the values in #Green 0.00, 0.00, 1.00, 1.00 for the display diamantino in Blue
Now that you know that eventually you can change the various colors to display different colors in the game, it's finally time to explain how to make plumbobs invisible!
Which Parameters need to Modify?
You see all the values highlighted in green (1.00)?
We need to bring these values to 0.00 by doing so the plumbobs will become invisible!
Once you change these parameters, save the file and copy it to the folder from which we took in origin.
My advice is to make a separate copy to save in a personal folder so that every time you want to remove or replace the plumbobs you can just copy / paste the file in the game folder, every time without having to re-edit parameters.
