Heads up hoes; the GShade dev has gone off the fucking rails and turned the damn program into malware. If you're using it for The Sims, FFXIV, Guild Wars 2, etc, it's a good time to uninstall it, after this recent update.
If the program detects it has been modified in any sort of way, it reboots your PC.
Okay tumblr is scaring the shit out of me!! I don't know where this whole narrative of "It's just so people don't tamper with the code!" and "it was so your computer reset if you downloaded from an unapproved source!" is coming from!
This is not the case!!
Someone made a patcher to make GSHADE presets compatible w/ Reshade. One of the Devs decided they wanted to go on a total power trip and made it so if you downloaded unofficial presets such as the presets you can find on tumblr that were originally made for Reshade the patcher to make your gshade stuff compatiable with reshade, your PC would restart!
This is NOT NORMAL OR ACCEPTABLE.
When you install GSHADE, you are giving it administrative privileges to INSTALL. Instead it's using these privileges to gain access to your KERNAL and IMPORTANT directories to shut EVERYTHING down when it finds the patcher or presets made by the patcher. All because the Dev was attempting to keep people from making a fork (patcher) of another fork (Gshade) of a program that they do not own (RESHADE).
In the face of all of this, the dev has proven that they have the ability to do the same or WORSE if they decide to do so (aka if someone else pisses them off). Please do not disregard the safety of your PC and the data on it simply because a program can take pretty pictures of your game. If you want to keep using Gshade, that's on you but DO NOT try to make this seem like it's not as bad as it actually is!

NoNite's Blog (The person this code was directed at)
This is the Dev addressing NoNite in regards to his program. Again, admitting that this code was directed at them and was meant to be "a lesson". Then proceeding to say that it would be Nite's fault for allowing people to download their patcher if the dev decided to do something EVEN WORSE.
Lately, I've been giving the sims live mode another shot (I know, shocking!), and I realized that I only have two restaurants in my save. Now that they are more functional thanks to Carl's mod, I thought it was time to build some more!
Also, I updated one of my previous lot, Au Frais Gardon, to make it work a little better. I am also finalizing a new version of the Palais des Orchidées I made for the same reason, I will post it soon.
Location: Magnolia Promenade, Preeminent Domain.
Info: Restaurant, 20x30.
Playtested as usual, without CC, use bb.moveobjects on before placing the lot.
