Hello everyone,

this little tuning Mod adds a SimPicker to the Unlock Door Pie Menu.

Don't upload this mod on other sites without permission

Checked with Game Version >1.29.69.1020<

New:
28.04.2017 - Morphar posted a possible explanation for the Issue where Sims still can not go through unlocked doors (added below in description)
26.04.2017 - Added Dutch Translation by ElenaInTheSims, thx
25.04.2017 - There seems to be a Problem with this Mod were it is not working correctly. So far i did not experience the same Problems. I will try to play/test more to see if i can get those Problems too to get a clue of a reason why those appear. Until then i suggest that everyone who has Problems takes this mod out for now.
24.04.2017 - Added Lock for all, Unlock for all and "Unlock Door for..." to gates on Community Lots
21.04.2017 - Added Polish Translation by Pawlq, thx!

On Residential Lots

With the SimPicker you can choose up to 20 Sims including Sims who are not in the Household to unlock the door for.


>>><<<
On Community Lots
>>><<<


Lock for all, Unlock for all and "Unlock Door for..." are enabled at gates on Community Lots

How to unlock Doors
>>><<<


Lock the Door for all.
Then Unlock it for chosen Sims.
The Door is then unlocked for the chosen Sims and the Active Sim which you have used to Unlock the Door.


>>><<<
What you also need to know
>>><<<


There sometimes is still an issue where Sims still can not go through unlocked doors or go through doors you just locked.

Morphar posted (read whole Post here) a possible explanation for this:

Code:
If a sim has already decided on their route to a location, locking a door on their chosen path will be ignored until the next time they try to find a route somewhere.



Available languages: English (default), Polish, Dutch and German

Any mod that modifies the same files listet below will likely conflict!

Does this also lock the door for a chosen sim?

No, you have to lock for all and then choose who you want to open it for

You could lock the door for all and unlock it for several sims without this mod but you had to do it one by one because you can only unlock it for the Active Sim. That was one reason to make this mod. The second was that you could only unlock doors for Household Members and Employees but not for Friends etc.

Yea this makes it better especially since the other door mod is outdated and partially broke. This will be very useful

As you now is also a locksmith is it possible that you can add to this or do another mod to lock doors on communiy lots? I use your "gardener with harvest" mod and on the scientific lab the co-workers harvest all the time.

Does this also act as an invite in for when friends on the unlock list visit?

Oddly enough, when your active Sim is unlocking the door, for others, the active Sim doesn't appear on the list, and cannot get back through the door, until you re-set the list, which you have to do, EVERY single time you want to add someone. They can't just be added, to an existing list.

Sry i don't get what you mean with the inactive Sim doesn't appear on the List? Do you mean you locked the door, unlocked them for Sim XYZ, later want to unlock it for more sims, but then Sim XYZ is locked out again?

EDIT just tested that and i works fine. Unlocked the Door for a few sims. Then unlocked it for one more and they all could still walk through it. YOu only have to unlock it for all again when you want do lock someone out again.

So i don't get what your problem is? Can you be more specific?
