Well, I wanted to do a custom career and college major, but this whole GUID thing seems to have stopped that in its tracks. So, plan B? Either learn to recolor or build something.

I'm not really sure what it will have aside from a playground, multiple bedrooms in each unit, maybe a common games room, and why not a pool and gym if there's space. It will probably have at least 3 floors due to the urban intentions, which could make toddlers a tad annoying, but hey that's the price of a desirable area that families can afford.


In my city, there are a couple of homeless shelters for single women with children. The rooms are motel style, rather than full-on apartment style. The one I visited had computers so mothers could search out and apply for job openings. I don't recall if there was a kitchen, but I know the dinner meals are brought in by local churches in big trays, and the families eat together. There is a family room with games and at least one of the shelters has a really nice outdoor playground.

You could do something similar, but make it a home for unwed pregnant sims or single moms with infants or toddlers. Just include a crib and a changing table in mom's room, and maybe a little daycare room where the tots can stay while mom attends job interviews or goes to her new job.

So many things to learn; so few brain cells to process the info needed to learn things!

Welp maybe I might not have anything to make for the theme after all, but I still plan on making a family oriented apartment building. Whether it fits the theme will depend. I'm thinking of making @SIMelissa 's idea first with 2 lots, one being a motel, and one being the homeless shelter after it's been converted. Hope no one minds exterior stairs and walkways, cause that's the style I'm going for. Probably. Toddlers can't use elevators without mods right? Would it be worth it to add them to a 3 or 4 floor motel?

Why do I have a badly done MS Paint spiral as my profile pic you ask? Well you see I have nothing better to put there than a thing I quickly made during a grade 10 business class.
Now what dammit?

I should have been doing other things but... I got inspired and made a mod for having children in college... Young adults can get pregnant, can roll a want to have a child, can take kids with them when they move out, plus children can age normally on college lots. I don't use Inteen or such, but if this have already been done as a separate thing before, please stop me.

While I was at it, I did a couple more things in "young adults can" vibe, one of them being to get a job. But since the job panel is occupied by college stuff, players are going to need some source of job information otherwise they'll just forget the sim has a job, lol. Anyway, it's not a jobs monthly theme here.

I like the homeless shelter idea very much. More stuff for struggling sims.

No, I don't, I've never had a reason to use any before. I will try registering at the German site and see what happens. If not, a lovely Simmer offered me some assistance with a couple.

@Lamare
the new mod you made and describe is features of Inteen, and no..I do not think anyone else done this besides Inteen.
I have that..my YA can have a part time job while in college. they can be pregnant, their children grow normally and the school bus comes to pick them up in the morning/comes back at 3pm. They move out just fine back to the main hood with their parents as well. See?
Last time I played this way, the YA mom invited her mom over..and ask to watch kids. Grandma stayed with them until the kid grew into a child and could be at school while mom was also at school..and this was fantastic.
If everything works the way you want..I might be able to let go of Inteen, who clashes with everything..but has these features I would prefer not to live without.
Thank you, hero.

I was going to say you can have a couple of GUIDs from me but I see you're already covered Golden

Sounds awesome Lamare, I think a lot of people would love that. Lots of people don't want inteen or teen-anything, so would be great with an option that only enables YA families on campus.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

Yeah, I thought Inteen would have YA pregnancy; never used it. I used to use cheats for that. But having it being controlled automatically is certainly more convenient.
Not to clutter this thread, I created one in Creator Feedback Forum.

Thanks so much for the offer, Gummi! I tell you that is one thing I really like about the Sims community, they tend to be very willing to help each other out!
