Tested for patch 1.91

Since the "Discuss Expanding the Family" interaction is just designed around pregnancy and does not work for gay couples or single Sims, I added a new interaction which lets your Sim suggest to another Sim that they might adopt a child.

UPDATE EA actually changed the "Discuss Expanding the Family" interaction to work on singles and homosexual couples who might now consider adoption. The disadvantages of this interaction are that it only works on Sims that live in a house and that it might also result in the adoption of a cat or dog (if you own the pack). If you do not care about these limitations you can now use the original interaction if you want to get someone to adopt. If you prefer to have more control you can use my mod.

Mod Functionality

This mod adds a new interaction "Suggest Adopting a Child" that can be found with the friendly interactions.

If the interaction is successful a random toddler or child will be added to the target household The toddler or child will be added to the family tree and the target Sim and their significant other (if there is one) will be set as parents.

Every Sim can suggest an adoption but only YA or Adult Sims can be the targets of the interaction. Your Sim has to be friends with the target Sim.

The suggestion will not always be successful and the Sims will get moodlets depending on the result. Sims with the trait "Family Oriented" will be affected more, both positively and negatively, but they will also be more successful.



If the target household is already full the suggestion will always fail.

And the interaction is not visible for members of the current household, since it is not meant as a cheat

FIX Interaction not working without debug cheats enabled

Translations
Available languages:All other languages will use the English texts (so far). Since I added a bunch of strings I'm not really comfortable with using automatic translations, but if anyone would like to provide translations for their languages I'd be happy to add it (and give credit of course).



Installation
Unzip and drag both the package file and the script file into your Sims 4 Mods directory (not more than one folder deep).

Compatibility
This mod adds a completely new interaction and does not override any game resources, so it's quite unlikely to conflict with other mods.
