For those of you who have it, how many of you can say you truly, regularly, have sims go all the way through university, work for it, graduate, and not cheat them through? I must admit, I've cheated a few to an early gradation, but mostly, I play them through, if I even send them there...
Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...
I have to say i really like uni, i seem to be the only one. Sometimes i cheat but mostly i don't, i love playing single sims, maybe 2 [or they'll all fail] I only maybe cheat with maxmotives but nothing else...
I usually don't cheat...and most of my teens do go to Uni. sometimes however they end up having a full class bar and half of the semester left to waste time, so then I cheat just a bit and jump to the final exam..
Well, I've only recently gotten it (about the same time *I* started going to university--and then I had less time to play!), so I can't really say I've actually graduated...any sims! ^^;; But, when I DO play, I don't use cheats, and I actually really enjoy it--It's much easier to meet sims in Uni than anywhere else (except for maybe Downtown...but you can't CALL them), and I prefer the school system soooo much more than the children/teen version (disappear for hours, come back with motives in the tank, bring up the motives, and then either have them do homework OR go to work--and if they go to work, they come back home and their motives are in the tank AGAIN, and by the time you've brought them back up they're too tired and have to go to bed. It drives me NUTS!!)
I play through university without cheating but it is very boring and tedious for me. I wish it went by year instead of by semester, even if it would be unrealistic. Young adulthood is way too long. I mean, it's 24 days, almost as long as adulthood. They can't even do things that adults can. It almost feels like playing an adult sim and just sending him/her to work everyday.
All of my in game born Sims go to college. I love the perks that come out of it, like the 6 wants with 2 lockable and the new career tracks. My Sims manage to gain tons of skills, aspiration points, and friends, which will help them in the long run.
I send a bunch of them together at a time. Once I made the mistake of sending 8 Sims into one dorm. I thought it would be faster to get them all through it at the same time but it was torture.
I actually never send my sims to university and if I do I use cheats to moment they arrive to make them gratuate that same moment, so they can get back... I can't help it... University takes to long to play, it's always the same and it is boring...)
(I only send them to university for ... eh... I don't know... I even don't know why university is still on my computer...)
I like University. It gives them time to build skills and earn their LTW faster. (Unless it's Golden Anniversary, in which case they usually switch to knowledge at the end of the sophomore year.) And I like the extra want slots you get from graduating, because it makes it easier to keep them happy. I know there is a large selection of hacks which do that as well, but I rather enjoy playing University.
Oh i love uni as much as OFB..it makes goals so much easier, though i usually sned my children-turned-teens to college instantly unless their close to geting some mroe money for when they go to college. It just makes it so easy to make rich sims. The only time i cheat is for design and architectual purposes, such as having a couch at a 45 degree angle. yes it is tedious but oh well
I always play it through properly, I love playing uni! I don't see the point in cheating through it. If it's for the extra want slots, why not just cheat to get them, instead of sending them to uni, only to have them come home not long after?
