Teen Enabled Woohoo Wants v1.08 for TS2AL v1.0p0
Made by: syberspunk

Note: Jase's InTeenimater and JenFlower's Woohoo Teens are now hosted at Simbology

This hack basically enables Woohoo related Wants for teens. I think twojeffs' originally had a hack to do this, but since it's pretty much considered taboo to mess with core files, many people have abandoned this type of mod. I decided that I wanted this back in my game, so I went about redoing it, and updating it for OFB. Theoretically... all types of woohoo wants should now show up for teens. This hasn't been fully tested, so I definitely would appreciate feedback from testers.

Note: Since it does modify what is essentially a core file, use this with extra caution. It would behoove you to take the following steps to preserve your game should anything unexpected or unwanted occur while using this mod:
1) backup YOUR Neighborhood BEFORE installing this mod!
2) backup the Core file(s) - Make a copy of the folder found in

For example:

If you have Celebration! Stuff
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSData\Res\Wants

Do this for whatever is the latest EP/SP that you have.

This assumes you used the default location for your installation.

Note the special instructions for installation - This Wants.package goes in the Wants directory/folder. It WILL NOT WORK if you put it in your Downloads folder.


INSTALLATION:
This MUST be in your Wants folder, typically found under:

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Open for Business\TSData\Res\Wants


Compatibility:
This should work for OFB/FFS.

For FFS and GLS use the OFB version.
For C!S and H&MFS use the Celebration! Stuff version.
For TSS you can try the Bon Voyage version (Untested).
For K&BIDS and IKEAHS you can try the Free Time version (untested).


This hack is compatible with most, if not all mods by MATY crew (Pescado, TJ, and CBoy), dizzy, and probably more. Again, up to you to help me determine any possible conflicts.

This hack is NOT compatible with any other hacks that modify the WantTrees.package - Unfortunately this means YOU CANNOT USE MORE THAN ONE MOD TO MODIFY THE WantTrees.package AT THE SAME TIME!

Consider yourself warned. :P

This hack IS compatible with Squinge's Uni Career enabled LTWs hack (which modify the Wants.package and WantTuning.package files).

REMINDER and fine print (to cover my ass ) :
Remember to ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE INSTALLING NEW HACKS. By using this hack, you agree to absolve me of any responsibility or liability for any potential loss of or damage to your data. You have been warned.

HOW TO REPORT: Conflicts, problems, or errors
I would appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback that is actually helpful. With that in mind, it would be helpful, when reporting any conflicts or issues, that you include the following:

1) thorough but reasonably brief description of what you were doing
2) clear, comprehendible explanation of your problem
3) list of hacks that may be related to woohoo wants or any hacks that modify WantTrees
4) archived (.rar or .zip) of log produced by error

HOW TO PRODUCE AN ERROR LOG:
1) Open the cheat menu - Ctrl + Shift + C
2) Enable the debug mode - Type: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true
3) Hit Enter :P
4) Play as normal until an error occurs. If an error dialog box pops up, note the location of the error log and choose Reset. If the error pops up repeatedly, choose Delete and exit WITHOUT SAVING!
5) Post your error log here, preferably as a .zip or .rar archive.

Posts which do not include a clear description of what your problem is will be pretty much ignored. (i.e. posts such as "This does not work! I am taking it out! You suck! Nice try! etc.") I can't and won't help you if you don't explain what's wrong.

Please be nice when trying to explain your problem and I might be nice and help you.

Finally, my Thank Yous go to:

J.M. Pescado, twojeffs, dizzy2, and jase439 for being excellent tutors and providing excellent models in their mods. As always, thanks to those creators who've put out some excellent modding tutorials, Quaxi and co for SimPE, and dizzy2 for disaSim2, and the finally letters T and S, and the number 2, all of whom, without which this mod would not be possible.

Special thanks to twojeffs who did all the previous footwork and pointed me in the right direction.

I dont' have a TSData folder or a RES folder... I couldn't find my wants stuff either. I haven't deleted anything and all i've added is the Downloads folder. the folders I have are: Camaras, Collections, Config, Logs, Lot Cataloug, Movies, Music, Neighborhood, SC4Terrians, Storytelling, Teleport, Thumbnails, & Downloads. There's also this Groups.Cache (67kb) thingy but IDK what it is or how it got there...

Will work. All the relevant code is present in those expansions. Just make sure you place the mod in the Pets folders.

I don't think so... I think I vaguely recall reading about a similar problem. This might have to do with hacks that rely on the social plug in. A few of mine do, as well as ebruere's let's get nude hack and a few others. I think they can spawn an object that creates weird options on the sim pie menu if the object isn't properly destroyed by the game code. I remember reading about some hack that used it, and when you removed the hack, it reverts to the default object, which is the social plug in. Anyways, I'm not totally sure. You probably should do a search about the Memory Manager thing.

These want hacks do not use the social plug in, so they shouldn't create any weird menu options like the ones you describe.

The "Spawn" option comes, AFAIK, from InSimenator, object version. It enables the player to create several objects which in turn offer a wide variety of manipulations to the active sim. I'm not sure, though, if some other hacks also use this "Spawn" option. But definitely the "Spawn" does not come from syberspunk's mod.

@signesim: How to backup files is explained in the user manual / online help of your PC's operating system. What kind of files you should backup is explained in detail on top of this page:

Quote:
1) backup YOUR Neighborhood BEFORE installing this mod!
2) backup the Core file(s) - Make a copy of the folder found in
If you have PETS
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Pets\TSData\Res\Wants
If you have GLS
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Glamour Life Stuff\TSData\Res\Wants
If you have FFS
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Family Fun Stuff\TSData\Res\Wants
If you have OFB
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Open for Business\TSData\Res\Wants

This assumes you used the default location for your installation.


The files for your neighborhood are located under
MyDocuments\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods\N00x (where x = the number of the neighborhood. Maxis provided the neighborhoods N001, N002, N003.)

Question?

Teens towards Adults.....
Flirt, kiss, do not show up in the pie chart (when you click the sim)....so how do they fulfill these wants?

Unless I'm doing something wrong?

Also, I like the idea - I cannot tell you how many times I finally find the "right" teen couple only to have one become and adult and they know longer can be together for a time....

Okay - I'm using Seasons and I'm still not getting any woohoo/flirt/kiss adult needs showing up at all ???? I don't know why?

HOWEVER, I do see flirt/fall in love/kiss showing up only in community lots - but the teens cannot act upon these or have them happen?

Peace!

I am not able to get this to work in game....I'm very dense when it comes to such things....I have all expansions but pets. I've downloaded the version of this for seasons, and installed it in my open for business wants section, but its not showing up. Am i supposed to put it in my Seasons want section? Of the 5 downloads I see here, which ones do I need to install to enable my teens to have romantic options with adults/young adults? !!!

If you read carefully, this hack should only enable the wants to show up. You will need the Teen Woohoo or InTeenimater hack to enable woohoo interactions between teens and between teens and adults. You could also use twojeffs' teens keep loves hack so that teens "remember" their loved ones even after they transition to adult. This is already built into the InTeenimater.

Ok, I've re-updated the Seasons version... this should hopefully make it work better. I may redo the woohoo wants hack from scratch and actually make versions for older EPs and the basehood... if/whenever I find the time to do it. :P

Hey Ste,
Thanks for updating your mod for Seasons. One thing I'm not entirely clear on though from reading the details; does the Seasons version include Pescado's "norandomflirtwants" hack? If so, do you intend to do a version that doesn't? I kinda like some of my sims being horn dogs sometimes .
Theorist
#72 Old 15th May 2007 at 7:47 PM
I have all the expansions and stuff packs, including the Celebration Stuff Pack. I tried placing the modified Wants tree for Seasons in both the Seasons and Celebration file paths but in neither case has it modified teen wants. I notice that the Wants tree file in the Celebration path is not the same size as that in the Seasons path, so I assume that EA must have modifed it.

Syberspunk, do you plan to make a a Celebration update? Or failing that, perhaps post instructions on how to modify the tree using SIMPE?

@suziblue: There is a version that does not include norandomflirtwants already.

@Sophie-David: Thanks for the info. I'll probably make a compatible version for Celebrations eventually... when I find the time to do it.

Ste

ETA: Ok, I made a version for Celebrations! Stuff. I'm not sure if it works so it needs testing.

Further more, I kinda did a half-assed job with previous versions prior to Seasons. I eventually plan to redo all previous versions, including Seasons from scratch.

I also plan to make versions for previous EPs, including NL, Uni, and the basegame. From what I have read so far, it seems that you cannot just plop the WantTree.package from a new game into an older version. It seems like the game doesn't like that.

So, to accomodate people who do not have the most recent EPs or SPs, I will do my best to make a version available for everyone. Of course, this will have to wait until I find the time. I will most likely get around to it sometime this week, but I won't make any promises. So please be patient, thanks.

Double post to bump and update:

v1.05 - Updated to include Go Steady Wants for Adults and Elders (needs testing)

ETA: This part still needs testing. I changed the Want Trees but I still have yet to see them actually roll up for adult sims

Also, I updated the versions for Seasons and Pets, as well as created versions for OFB and NL. I will eventually get around to creating ones for Uni and the Base Game when i find the time.

These versions should be "cleaner" versions, basically done from scratch. Feedback is always welcome.
