Hello Everyone,

I'd like to modify for my game the times where the butler (Alfred) starts working and leaves the lot. And, optionally, modify the amount of money he charges.

Is this possible (e.g stored in his IFF file) or is it hard-coded into Superstar itself?

What about the butler from C&C Enterprises, can he have his start & end times & payment changed since he is a custom butler and therefore not tied to Superstar?

500 a day seems a bit much for how little Alfred works during the day - same for the C&C butler (who charges less).

It's apparently doable for custom content creators because I found a third butler from somewhere that charges a different amount, but I don't know if the work times are changeable...

I'd appreciate some pointers on where to look, if what I'm asking for is possible!

The end time is coded in his iff but the start time is probably in the phone plugin that schedules him.

The maxis butler's fee is in BCON 4096, line #1 of his IFF file (NPC_Superstar_Butler.iff)

What phone plugin schedules the Maxis Butler?

I found references in NPC_Superstar_Butler.iff to 'game simulation hours' connecting to a 'leave' / 'leave now' command, but nothing that directly comes out saying that it matches with the midnight time Alfred leaves.

I know what phone plugin schedules the C&C butler, so I can look there for modifying Cary Grant the way I want.

I have looked through the Superstar FAR and I must have missed the phone plugin's name with all the content packed into it!

You could check ExpansionShared, particularly if you have CC.
