This quick and dirty hack, as requested by arathea, causes step-family to no longer be recognized as such. The effect is that sims can now have romantic relationships with step-family. May have a similar effect on in-laws. The negative side effect is that sims can no longer Encourage their step-children. Other parental interaction based on the step-family check will also be broken.

UPDATE June 4th, 2015: An alternative (alt) version of this mod is now available!
An improvement over the original version:
  • Family interactions between step-parents and step-children remain intact.
  • Step-siblings are no longer considered family, but have the Romantic interations available, if so desired.

UPDATE October 2nd, 2018: There is now a more complete version of this mod: BO - Step-Family Romance (fix).
  • Family interactions between step-parents and step-children remain intact.
  • Step-siblings are no longer considered family, but have the Romantic interations available, if so desired.
  • New feature: this mod includes the In-laws fix as originally created by kestrellyn@MTS2, added with her kind permission. Check her page out for more info.
  • Instead of removing a few unneeded tests, I originally just inverted their results when originally creating the alt version. Again, thanks to kestrellyn, this error has now been rectified.

UPDATE October 9th, 2018: I've decided to also remove the unneeded tests from the (alt) version. For those who want the latest version, but do NOT wish the In-Laws fix.
Because some people prefer it if their sims are still able to woo their in-laws Tongue

An upgrade to the new FIXED or ALT version is highly recommended.

I've used quite a few mods by others, thus taking FROM the community. With the work that *I* create, I'm hoping to give something back TO the community.

Do with my work whatever the &#$% you like. If you re-use, edit and republish my work, I consider it a compliment. Especially if you let me know about it, and mention me in the credits.

But, although I would *appreciate* the note and the credits, if you choose to be a dick and act as if YOU created my mods, there's not a whole lot I can do to stop you, so I won't even TRY.

Enjoy.

Yeah, that was what I meant: when you ONLY touch this one BHAV, it's one or the other. And that was all I wanted in the first place.
I've been to MATY on occasion, though I never posted there. I have some mods from both your other aka's (not the incest thing). Good to know you're still active. Thank you for looking me up, friend! It was an honor.

Thanks to @child_of_air for originally reporting the conflict with the In-laws Fix, which resulted in this new version.

So glad you two were able to fix it. I didn't expect that considering you are "retired,".....like me. Haha! I really appreciate this, thank you Smile

No need to thank me for that, @child_of_air. I believe it's a modder's responsibility to make his mods work correctly, and fix any issues. If that means having to break retirement, then so be it.
And @kestrellyn made it very easy for me to set things right, so it wasn't a lot of work, either.
I'm just happy that I could help. Big Grin
