Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This hack has been requested by many people most recently jesusgirl678.

Will allow female sim's, ages teen to adult, to have a period.

When first loading a lot after installing this hack, the Period Controller will check each sim on the lot to see if they meet the necessary requirements to have a period, and if so they will be assigned a token. The Controller will check once every hour to see if there are any new sims on the lot who meet the requirements. Visitors and NPCs are also able to have periods.

A sim will start her period every 4 days, and last between 8 and 16 hours. If the sim is a teen and it is her first period, she will have a memory "Had My First Period", this memory is not available to YAs and adults. The initial starting day, hour and duration are determined when the sim is assigned their period token and the values are stored on the token. When a sim reaches the elder age she will no longer have periods. If a sim is pregnant she will not have a period.

Initially the day that a sim will start her period is chosen at random between Monday and Sunday. The hour she will start her period is also chosen at random. So if the day she starts her initial period is Tuesday and the hour is 9:00am and the day you start playing is Tuesday and the hour is 10:00am, then you'll have to keep playing until 9:00am of the next Tuesday before you recieve a message that she has started her period. Periods will occur every 4 days after she has had her initial period.

The Effects of the period are a decrease of the comfort and hygeine motives. Using a tampon will stop the hygiene motive from being effected until it's effects wear off. A tampon remains effective for 4 hours.The Tampon Controller will direct a sim to use a tampon autonomously. All that the Use Tampon interaction does is make the sim use the toilet, there are no new animations and no modifications done to any of the toilets. The Tampon Controller will direct the sim to use the toilet and will check to see if the toilet was successfully used and if so will diplay a message stating that the sim has used a tampon. If the Use Tampon Interaction is cancelled from the sim's queue, you can just direct the sim to use the toilet and that will satisfy the Controller that the sim has used a tampon.

There are no global modifications in any of the package files included in this hack and all have registered GUIDs, so the risk of conflict with other hacks is low.

I have Original, University and NightLife, if your installation differs from this let me know whether it works for you not. I think it should be compatible with all EPs though.

Place all the package files in your downloads folder.

If you are downloading an updated version allow the new package files to overwrite the old ones in your downloads folder.

Update 08/14/06:
New Features, Changes and Bug Fixes:

-Period's now enabled for community lots.

-Option to start or end period by clicking on a sim.

-Option to change the duration of a sim's period. This option is only available when the sim isn't having a period.

-The tampon controller now takes locked doors and other barriers, i.e. a toilet in a room without a door, into consideration when locating a toilet to use.

-Added cramps. This uses part of the labor pains animation. Lowers comfort.

-Added munchies. This will cause a sim to crave junk food, and she will go to the fridge and either get cookies or chips to eat.

-Tampons now last for four hours instead of three.

-Sims you are talking to on the telephone will no longer be checked by the period controller.

-Fixed a problem in the Display Period Stats controller that was causing sims to appear to lose autonomy.

-Fixed a problem where if a sim left for work or school needing to change her tampon, she wouldn't be able to change it until returning home.

-The tampon controller is now more aggressive in making a sim change her tampon.

-The period controller will now check to see if a sim's period started or ended on another lot and quietly start or end it if she is or isn't supposed to be having it at the current day and time. This function will also be activated if the day or time has been changed by the Insimenator's temporal adjuster.

I just got AL. Is this AL compatible? If not please consider doing an AL comapatible version

#528 Old 18th Oct 2008 at 8:33 AM
From my experience, it is -almost- compatible with AL. Sometimes (or maybe all the time) when the sim goes to change her tampon it will pop up as an action to "Drink love potion #8.5" instead of change tampon, but your sim will still carry out the action required. So yeah, it works, as long as that doesn't bother you. I don't know how it works with free will off, because mine is always on.

Totally agree, Paroxysm. BTW, I 1) love your stuff and 2) get what your name means and appreciate it.

Yeah, I always think it's weird that periods have to be so shamefully obscured. Ever see anyone on TV mention their period? Only if it's a self-depreciative crack about PMS, that's about it. I honestly never thought about it in the context of Sims, but now that it's here I'm totally excited about it! ...Unlike when my actual period came.

I have a slight problem.. I love this hack and everything, but I wanna get rid of it (out of my game) does anyone know what the exact file names are? I've looked at the rar. folder and then checked it in my download folder and there are no things called that.. Can someone please help me. (btw, it works perfectly with all EP's and everything)

I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you

rose-gurl-123: try using delphys download organiser or clean installer. Or, maybe you could like, redownload it, which would replace the files, then [keeping track of the names of files and where they are] delete the new files. Maybe you should additionally put your things in subfolders, too, which would make it super easy to locate the correct files.

Sims, like life, is very unpredictable. One minute you're eating four day old pizza, and then the repo-man steals your only sofa and you're in tears. ...then the food poison kicks in.

This was an extremely old post, but I was going to put this for other users, try using 7zip to open .rar files.

Anyways, perfect hack, downloading and using.
