November 7, 2017, Maxis Patch: Fixed!

This mod should now be working as before, with the November 7, 2017, Maxis patch.

Variations are slightly less flexible, but easier to manage, than it was before; to use the updated version of the mod, simply use one of two versions:

Triplis--QuitOrJoinSchool--ChildOnly--V1-5

Triplis--QuitOrJoinSchool--ChildTeen--V1-5

Explanation on these versions is explained in detail below for those who are new to the mod.

Enjoy!

And of course, let me know if you still experience any issues.

Features

No Auto Enroll

The scripted part of the mod effectively disables auto-enrolling. Whether you reload, travel, or age up Toddler --> Child or Child --> Teen, your sim will never be enrolled in school without your doing it.

You can enroll your Child or Teen in school through the Phone --> Find a Job. Even if you are using the "ChildOnly" version of the mod, your Teen will still be able to enroll in school through Phone --> Find a Job (they just won't be able to quit after enrolling with that version of the mod).


Quit School

You can quit school as a Child or Teen by opening up your phone, going to the Career/Household panel, and clicking "Quit Job." The game will prompt you to confirm your decision, the same as if you're quitting a career as an adult.


Rejoin School

You can rejoin school after quitting by opening up your phone, going to the Career/Household panel, and clicking "Find a Job." The game will bring up the panel that allows you to choose a career.


Differences between Child and Teen

Child: Children can't be whisked away from having too low of a Grade. I originally put this in the mod to handle situations where you quit/rejoin a lot and end up with a terrible grade that is hard to get out of and puts your Child Sim close to being taken away; for now, it's the default (and only) up to date version, along with grades not going down when you quit/rejoin.

Teen: Teens require some explaining. For reasons I haven't yet wrapped my head around, allowing Teens to quit school like it's a career interferes with whatever it is that normally allows them to have a job and attend school. This means that if you try to have a job and attend school as a Teen (with this mod installed) the game will prompt you to choose one over the other; only job or only school.

This is where choosing between "ChildTeen" or "ChildOnly" comes in. If you want Child sims to be able to quit/join, but you don't want Teens to have their joint school/career thing mucked with, you can just apply the possibility of quitting to Child sims. Teens will still be affected by the no-auto-enrolling script though.


Compatibility:

This mod overrides several game files. Mods that edit the same files will conflict. The files are as follows.

commodity_Career_Child_Neglect | S4_339BC5BD_00000000_0000000000018282

career_Child_GradeSchool | S4_73996BEB_00000000_000000000000325F

career_Teen_HighSchool | S4_73996BEB_00000000_0000000000002545

phone_JoinCareer | S4_E882D22F_00000000_00000000000035DB

phone_QuitCareer | S4_E882D22F_00000000_00000000000035E2

Scripting note for other modders:The script to avoid auto enroll now edits "_apply_school_career" in simulation\careers\school\school_tuning.py (so any scripts that change the default code for that method will conflict... appending code may or may not)
