Rabbit holes are fine, as long as they are work related, but some of them (Movie, Spa, Dining), shouldn't be closed up. So I made this mod in a moment of frustration when I noticed that even if you were in an outing, you still couldn't watch a movie with your group.

What does this mod do
- This mod gives your Sim a "Watched a great movie" moodlet, lasting 16h, if you watch TV in a community lot where you have a rabbit-hole Theatre.
- Watching a movie costs 40§, this amount will be decreased from the family funds of the person who is watching
- If the rabbit hole is owned by another Sim, the 40§ will be added to their family funds
- A movie lasts 2h, so when the moodlet's remaining time is 14h or less, the Sim will be charged another 40§ ticket, and the moodlet gets resetted to 16h.

Music Career:
- If you perform a song with any instrument, and you are in the rock star career, and you job requires you to give concerts, after you finish your performance, your concert count will be increased by 1.

How the mod works:
- To set up the mod, you need a community lot, where you have a Theatre rabbit hole. The rabbit hole can be the original building or a rug or a door.
- Then add a TV to the lot and you are done.

Modding the modIf you want to change the price of the ticket, open the package with S3PE, and modify the <movieFee value="40" /> tag in the XML file.

I've had this mod in my game for a very long time, but was too lazy to finalize it. And when I did finalize it a month or so back, I decided to wait until Generations was out so I could update it straight away.

The movie watching functionality I've used for quite extensively in my main hood. The Rock-star functionality I've only tested in my test hood, because nobody in my main hood works in that career.

- To my knowledge, there are none. But if you find anything, please report.

- This might conflict with mods that listen to the watched TV and performed song events.
- This mod should work with just the basegame, because I don't use any EP spesific codes. My own game is up to Generations.
- As with any mods, use it at your own risk, and backup your hood before installing.

Game version:
Base game: 1.22.9
Generations: 8.0.152

Have fun
