It's a good habit to always delete the 'scriptCache.package' file when you install or replace a scripted mod.

Updates

  • JunJayMdM.OnlineCenter V30

    • December 2nd, 2014
      • Fixed more bugs in eBooks code, especially reversed prices, because...my dog changed the code...yes it was my dog! (P.S. My dog was not harmed after the discovery. P.P.S. I don't own a dog)
      • Minor code optimizations.
      • Added Swedish translation (thanks to Makkxa).


Sometimes, when updating from an older version, this mod settings might get corrupted and reset when starting the game. Therefore, I recommend always writing down the settings you're interested in, so if a reset happens you can set them again.

Game Version : 1.63 - 1.67

It might work on previous Patch Levels too, but it's only been tested and proved working on 1.63 up to 1.67, so use it at your own risk.

Conflicts

  • This mod removes the following EA Interactions on Tablets :
    • ChooseBookOnTablet
    • PickUpTabletForReading
    • ReadBookOnTablet
    • PickUpTabletForShopping
    • ShopForBooksOnTablet
  • Any other mod that overrides those interactions might not work or cause problems.
  • If you have the NRaas OnceRead Tablet module installed, the interaction to read books on Tablets will still be available, so I recommend removing it. Note that OnceRead Tablet also overrides the Tabcast by adding all skills, but you may use Study Skills Online which integrates that functionality.
  • Aside from that, this mod will hardly ever conflict with another one. The worst it can happen is that it won't work, if you have a Core mod installed that changes the resources used by my mod. As far as I know, no such mod exists.

Known Issues and Quirks

You will still read "Telephone Services" in the window dialog when calling services online. Nothing much I could do about it

Description

  • This mod adds a set of new interactions to Computers, SmartPhones (requires EP9 University Life or EP11 Into The Future) and Tablets (requires Store item) under "Online Center...".
  • eShopping, Read eBooks, Check PlumbBook, these are only 3 of the features of this mod. See the 'Interactions' section to read all of them.
  • If you have NRaas Consigner installed, eShopping from registers will use its system instead of the EA default one (it can be changed in 'Online Center Settings').

Interactions

There are quite a few interactions in this mod, so click the button below to show them all and read how each one works

NOTE : Not all interactions are available when traveling.



Settings

IMPORTANT NOTES : Settings are saved separately for each save game and each world. This means that when your sims travel, settings will be different. You can still change them but remember that they will always be different from the ones you set in the Home World.
  • You can find "Settings" under the "Online Center..." menu, or when clicking on the Terrain (if enabled) under the "JunJayMdM" menu.
  • Every change you make to these values will be permanent when you save the game.
  • You will find more details about these values, when selecting them in the game.
Click the button below to show all the settings and how each one works



Translation

If you feel like translating the strings, click the 'Language Availability' button below and check if a specific language "Needs Update", then read the instructions by clicking the 'Instructions for Translation' button.

NOTE : Settings are not available for translation. Why? Because they can be compared to the explanations here on the thread and it's easier for me to provide help for them.





Notes

  • You don't need to have EPs installed, it will work fine with the Base Game only, as long as your game is patched up to date.
  • This mod likes to smoke so open the Packages folder frequently to avoid other mods dying from second-hand smoke.
  • If you find bugs in this mod, call the exterminator or simply report them to me
