320 Thanks Say Thanks
The mod is updated to V2 for the 1.17.7 patch. The job_visitor file is added into the mod as evilone22 has stated in the comments.

This mod alters the Invite In function, or result, such that sims invited into your home or lot are allowed to stay indefinitely. It works the same way whether using 'Invite In' on a sim knocking at the door, inviting a sim by phone, or inviting a sim through 'Travel', or however.

The Appropriateness Buffs applied to visitors, i.e. No Bathing, No Cooking, No Cleaning, No Sleeping, are removed so that visiting sims can do these things normally; they act more or less as roommates similar to the Sims3 Uni roommates.

However!....When the active sims travel away to some other Neighborhood or Lot, the current active lot is unloaded while the new lot is loaded and made active. So all the visitors staying at your place simply disappear, although it's possible to call the same sims on the phone and invite them back.

Also, visiting sims who need to go to work or school will leave at the correct time, and they do not come back afterwards; they will need to be re-invited. If your active sim goes to work and the camera remains at the home lot, visitors will remain in place as the home lot is still the lot being run by the game.

Unzip the file and use the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.
These files are used:
Situation_GreetedNPCVisitingPlayerSituation_FBC3AEEB_00000000_0000000000009983.xml
visitor_role_start_0E4D15FB_00000000_0000000000003E2D.xml

Default Update for Invite Indefinitely mod for Pets
I don't have their original files so I recreated the mod best I could, and included pets, and in a way that it won't throw any LEs. !! About 8 sim days !! (Normal time length increased by x20, *timer of 240 now 4800*) Of course they still leave when they have school or work, or when the timer suddenly runs out *noticable with long live spans, maybe medium*. - I don't know how to make the timer loop, and don't have anything to be able to see the original code.

Included the ability as in the original for being able to do all normal functions like sleeping, bathing and what not. Welcome home to the roommates, except now pets are included. :D

I actually utilize the "invite in" or "Ask to Hangout" interactions to start. Prevents accidental stays from others that may not be wanted.

- Thanks to the original modder for starting this
- Thanks to others who helped keep this mod alive
- Thanks to S4S for having tools I could use to build it, even tho it's not intended to work like this.
- Thanks to EA for putting in the limitations that are ridiculous.

Edit: A MUCH Longer version a few posts bellow this one.

Thanks Arianna, thanks a lot !!!!
I was playing a sim that live in friend houses, but since the update that killed the mod, I couldn't play this scenario anymore. Hope your mod help me to continue

Seams to work, my sim doesn't want to go back home (that is not a house, but an empty lot )

For that, you could get enough aspiration points to get the trait "Always Welcome"

Of course, my sim have this trait
But, even with that, my sim want to go back home since the cats and dogs update. Now with your mod, it seems to be OK, my sim dont want to leave (I will test further and longer...)

Default Minor Time Tweak
added a couple more 00s to the timer, seems 4800 was like 8 sim days... so 480000000 Should be more like a sim lifespan on long? Or longer?
This one...
- Should only notice them leaving when playing a home bound Sim family (or vampire sim), with a vampire for company, after a VERY long visit.
So, in a way, the previous version, is a vacation at your home, and the next is, move in, without actually moving them into the home. :D
- If their need drops to like super low, they still leave, Like if you don't have places to sleep, use the toilet, shower, a kitchen... Yeah, they will still leave.

Edit: Shorter version a few posts above this one.
