Testers wanted: Community Party

by cathair2005 Posted 18th Aug 2005 at 3:57 PM - Updated 9th Feb 2006 at 12:33 PM by cathair2005 : To verify that it only works for uni

This item makes it possible for you to use your cellphone and throw parties on community lots. Now I've been told that, without unversity, sims just stand there peeing themselves. But with university they should party on which is why I said university only.

Now don't expect all your guests to stay when the lot becomes crowded. The aim of this hack is to achieve the want for having a wedding party on a community lot (eg. a chapel); and to get a memory albeit bad or good of the wedding. I haven't fully tested it yet which is why I need testers but hopefully the limo will come on the community lot and take them on their honeymoon.

Any testers, please try and have a wedding party on a community lot and tell me how it goes. I know it works for a regular party. Anybody on the community lot should count as a party member in terms of social interactions raising the score. And with all the socialising on community lots and the arrival of new sims, it makes a party on this lot easier.

NOTE: This only works for uni. I don't think it will work properly without uni and it won't work properly with NL. I've already upgraded but haven't yet posted so if anybody's interested in trying out the NL version, just ask. Though guests seem to disappear from the lot quicker in NL than in UV.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

...This has nothing to do with anything, but when I read the title of this thread I thought it said 'communist party'. :Slap:

I also thought I'd mention (cause it's taken me this long to go back and look at all my pictures) that NONE of the pictures I took for the wedding showed up in the family album. And I took a lot of pictures. I'm sure the pictures are somehow connected with the community lot, but that just annoys me, since there is no in-game access to those pictures from the family lot.

Back to the subject, I downloaded this a while ago and it works great. I always found it a nuisance to not be able to HOST the party outside of the home. Thanks!

Does this work with the Nightlife EP, or will you be updating it to work if it doesn't? I really like this hack and I hope I'll be able to keep using it when I get the expansion.

cathair2005, are you there? I would also like to know if it works with NL and the patches. Also, you should update the compatibility.

At least for me this hack isn't working with NL. I would love to see an update, I want my wedding parties at the church!

It probably doesn't work with nl because of the changed social system, namely outings, which now that I think of it can be used instead.

This would be so cool to have but since I have NL I won't download it. But I've been waiting for this hack for sooo long. I built a church downtown so sims could get married but I don't know how to put the wedding arch in and use it there on a community lot. If anyone can tell me how to do the latter there it could help me even if I couldn't throw them a party.

Legal... Eu nem falo inglês, mais tudo bem... Se alguém falar Português, esse alguém intenderá, quem sabe essa mensagem incentivará com que os Americanos, comecem a fazer curso de Português. Ou melhor "portuguese".

Sorry guys, I've been away from the sims for months. But now I'm back and hope to upgrade my hacks?

So how are you all? What has happened since I've been gone? I've been away since NL came out actually so I'm just getting up to date and in time for the business expansion which will probably obsolete all the upgrades I do but oh well...

Pictures taken on commnity lots never show up in the family album, only in the neighbourhood album, which is also accesible in-game. Have you checked there?

Update: This hack isn't working for me (got Uni and NL) It all went well, untill they actually got married. Then the groom (the one that was supposed to move in) froze. It's probably some other hack, but in any case, it doesn't work for me.

Unfortunately guys, this hack isn't NL compatible. I've designed one for NL but I have yet to post it. Though that behaviour you experienced seems odd for this hack. But I did have trouble with the wedding arch once and I had to delete it and buy a new one.

Ah, sorry, so many posts to read, so little time
It's just that "all" is checked under requirements, shouldn' that be changed?

Absolutely, thanks for pointing this out. I'll see if I can change it.

Will this be updated for OFB or is it already working for it?

Please don't PM me with questions. Post them in the appropriate thread.

I have a problem with this MOD (i think it is the problem, i'm not sure :P)
when i plan a wedding party in my chapel and i tell the groom to marry, the action often jumps and the bride stays alone under the wedding arch! and even if they finally get married, the bride doesn't appear in my family and still stays under the wedding arch until the end of the party...she's sticked on the floor and can't do anything!!! i don't know if the problem is with this mod or with the community wedding arch...
HELP ME PLEASE!!! :'(

Thanks so much for this. It seemed unrealistic that Sims will only get married at home. Even if this doesn't work in my game(NL) thanks anyway!
