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.

Triple post to bump and further update:

v1.051 - Updated yet again. This time, for real. I blame Maxis EA. It was their fault. They put out a patch that didn't quite work, and I just followed suit.

So please, download and test again. Thanks.

Note:
Use the zadultsdisabledgosteadywant.package hack if you do not want the Go Steady wants to show up for Adults and older.


This is for players who want all the benefits of having woohoo wants enabled for teens, but do not want to enable "Go SteadY" wants for adults.

For those who do want to enable "Go Steady" wants for adults, the check tree has been rolled into the latest release of my adultsgosteady hack. This was done for those people who only want adult go steady wants, but exclude any other changes to the check trees.

ETA: The Go Steady want check tree is already included in the teenenabledadultwants.package for those who want both adult wants for teens and go steady wants for adults. Hack compatibility may report a conflict, but it won't matter as they contain the same changes. If you want to enable the Go Steady wants for adults, you must use a hack to enable the interaction for adults as well, such as my adultsgosteady hack or jase's InTeenimater.

Hey Ste, one question, then a quick check to ensure my understanding of the status of any base game version of this mod...

The question: You state that the teen enabled adult wants mod is only useful if you've Teen Woohoo, but isn't it useful as well for InTeen users like myself? I haven't played teens for a long time, but I can't remember InTeen enabling adult wants.

And lastly, a quick rundown...

A)To be safe, always back up before any changes, of course...

B) You now Do plan to create a version of the woohoo wants for the base game, however, there is no ETA, and will happen when it happens...

C) As far as you know, all indications seem to confirm that the teen enabled adult wants mod Will work with the base game, while the woohoo wants may fubar base game only players...and the teen enabled adult wants mod is to be placed in my downloads folder.

D) Since I have Inteen, once I DL the teen enabled adult wants mod then my teen Sims will not only roll adult wants (excluding specifically woohoo wants), they will also be able to act on those wants ...they will be able to woohoo (due to Inteen), they simply won't roll woohoo wants...

E) ...And finally, as I Do want both teen, and adult, enabled "go steady" options, and don't want random flirts, I should DL teenenabledadultwants.package (only)...

Am I good to go?


Thanks so much for your patience, And for your awesome mods!

I forgot I had this installed, and uploaded a new EP (Bon Voyage). I'm having problems with my wants now, and can't find where I put my backup file; thought it's probably too late at this point anyway. Will I need to reinstall the entire game?

Hi Indoor Girl

I have attached an archive of my C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Bon Voyage\TSData\Res\Wants directory. If you restore these files to your Wants directory you should be back in business. Actually the mod only changed WantTrees.package, but it was just as easy to include the whole directory.

I do not think you will need to reinstall the game. Once you start playing with the default package the wants should start to normalize.

Cheers - David

Thank you so much for this, and such promptness! On question though, it was the WantTrees file from Seasons, and I forgot it in when I installed BV. Will this one work as a replacement in the in the Season's folder? BTW, I have really enjoyed this hack, thank you!

#86 Old 8th Nov 2007 at 4:17 AM
I'm 99% sure that the Seasons WantTrees will not be used at all now that you have installed Bon Voyage. But just in case, I have attached the contents of C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\Wants

Either when unzipping SEAS-teenenabledwoohoowants.zip itself or by using Windows Explorer later, you need to copy WantsTrees.package to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Seasons\TSData\Res\Wants. You will not see any new object in the game, but the range of wants that teens can have will change.

I'm sorry I don't really know. Perhaps try downloading again? Are you able to unzip other files normally?

Of course you don't really want to open the package file, only extract it. Maybe that's the problem: you are trying to open the file as well as extract it.

I downloaded this, and it worked well, but I decided to get rid of it. I deleted the files in the Wants folder then replaced the files that used to be there. Now my sims do not have any wants. Does anyone know what I could do to fix it?
Field Researcher
#94 Old 28th May 2008 at 10:09 AM
Locate the directory where your game is installed. Usually, and if you accepted the default setting during installation, it should be: "C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2 <and the name of the latest Expansion Pack>\TSData\Res\Wants". There you should see three files:
- Wants.package
- WantTrees.package
- WantTuning.package

If these files (or one or two of them) are missing, get the original DVD/CD of your latest Expansion Pack, and open the file "compressed.zip" in the DVD's root. Within that ZIP, you will find these original files (if I remember correctly, that is; otherwise, they will be in some other zip file on the DVD). Copy them to the path given above. This should fix the problem.

Okay, so I have Double Deluxe which seems to be a little different than most EPs.

Instead of, like "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Nightlife\TSData\Res\Wants"

It's more of a "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\" and then there are three folders to choose from. One that says "base" on called "EP2" and one called "SP4" or something.

Which one should I change the want tree for?

"Teen Woohoo is now being maintained by jase439 and can be found here."

If you want the updated version at that link, you'd better get it quick. I think jase439 is closing the site on August 18th.
