I am back with another Global Mod that contains more fixes to the User Interface of
The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff.

If you guys remember my Live UI "Needs" Font size fix for The Sims 2 AL/MG
you should know already what this mod does, and this mod expands upon what the older one does, by alot.

If you look at these images, take a good look at the text, this mod makes a big difference in the text sizes
as this mod restores the nice large fonts that were present in The Sims 2 Basegame all the way up to FreeTime.

Additionally this mod fixes another big messup, when you have to name your witch cat,
notice that without the mod, you would see both gender symbols clipping each-other, it seems as EA was soo lazy that
they just left it at this, so i had to create a new image to fit where those gender symbols would be, and code the UI Data to fix it,

i also fixed the tiptext to "Spectral Cat" instead of "Baby Boy" because, i don't know why EA would classify a magic cat as a baby sim.

This .gif will show you the difference between the original dialog and my fixed dialog.

Now here's a short list of all the effects this mod does.

1: Fixes the tiny text in multiple locations in the sims 2 user interface. (this includes several dialogs too.)
2: Fixes a bug on which the 2nd position of spring was using the wrong image from the pet's point of view.
3: Fixed the tiptext so that it says "Spectral Cat" when you hover your cursor over the spectral cat icon.
4: Replaces the gender icons on the "Name your witch cat" dialog with the spectral cat icon.

Special Note: this mod Includes the Live UI "Needs" font size fix.

Because this mod includes the Live UI "Needs" Font size fix for The Sims 2 AL/MG, i recommend that you delete it before installing this mod.
Compatibility Information:

If you do not have The Sims 2: Apartment Life Expansion Pack or The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff Pack
then you do not need this mod at all, because the fonts were all fine before Apartment Life.

You do not need both Apartment Life and Mansion & Garden Stuff, this mod will work fine if you have either one of them.

This mod should work on The Sims 2: Ultimate Collection.

The Sims 2: Store Edition is NOT supported, i don't know if this mod will work on store edition, use at your own risk.
