Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a cloned computer (cheap and expensive) and a light computer by Sunair.

UPDATED: 10/20/2006
<< v13.0 PETS >>

- Made a little tune-up based on concerns.
Here are my old features that I didnt upload before:
- Added "Private School Fees (ON/OFF)", your sim (child/teen) will automatically be admitted to a private school but you will pay private school fees everyday the amount is based on your sim's school Grade. (Requested by Sandilou, I think two months ago)
- Added "Auto Move In to College (ON/OFF)", your sim (teen) will automatically move in to college if his age days left is one day before turning into Adult and if his Wants is "Go to College" on that day.
- Added "Chat with... Frat Member and SS Member", for easy searching of Frat and Secret Society members. Because if you are going to hunt them in community lot sometimes some of them are not wearing their uniform, so I made an Online forum for them that will shows to us who are frat and SS members. This feature is also available for Teen in order for them to advance their relationship with them (frat and SS) before entering College.
- Added "Auto child Banking", your sim (child) will autonomously deposit 10K or 20K into his bank accounts for College fund if his bank accounts is zero and your household fund is greater than 10K.
- Added "Auto Withdraw All", your sim (elder) will autonomously withdraw all his bank accounts if his age days left is one day before meeting with Grim Reaper.
- "Work At Home" and "Pay Bills Online" can now be accessed in your sim's pie menus (click on your sim).

UPDATED: 10/21/2006
<< v13.1 >>

- Added "Shop Online/Buy Pets". It will appear beside your sim.

UPDATED: 10/27/2006
<< v13.2 >>
- Updated "Find a Job". (Reported by ladykatsim)
- Added "Bank Online.../Auto Child Banking is (ON/OFF)". But still all (Auto College, Private School and Child Banking) defaults are ON.

UPDATED: 11/04/2006
<< v13.3 >>
- Changed default to OFF (Auto College, Private School and Child Banking)
- Added buyable Transformer Potions (Vampire and Werewolf) in "SHOP ONLINE.../Gypsy..".

UPDATED: 11/20/2006
<< v13.4 >>
- Made English as default language to reduce filesize, to easy for me to edit it and to support all languages.
- Added the ff options:
"Bank Online.../Transmit Money.../To Household Funds.../(Playable/Sim Bin)" - send money to playable neighbor sims and sims who are in family bin, the money will be added to their household funds.
"Bank Online.../Check Money.../Household Funds.../(Playable/Sim Bin)" - inquire household funds of playable neighbor sims and sims who are in family bin.
- Removed "global text" taken from computer globals but still two global bhavs left, one is "sit in" that handles the stomping of feet when the computer is in use then someone want to use it and the other one is "ct-ring" that handles the no wake up when cellphones rings.

UPDATED: 03/03/2007
<< v14.0 SEASONS >>

- Added "Buy Collar" and "Buy Video Games" in SHOP ONLINE. (Requested)
- Added "Study Badges.../Gardening" and "Study Badges.../Fishing" (Requested)
- Added Seasons career rewards
- Enabled autonomous of Play SSX, but I inserted a conditions they would only autonomous play if their Fun level is below 50% and will automatically stop playing if their Fun reach 100%.
- I returned back "School.../Study Skills..." to work like OFB-Write Article where you can assign sim to study skills without earning money and badges. (Requested)
- Added "Outerwear" in SHOP ONLINE
- Added "Gypsy.../Plantophic-C" and "Gypsy.../Plantophic-X" in SHOP ONLINE, a potions for transforming your sim to plantsim and plantsim to sim.
- MQ_Resurrect-O-Nomitron_Bank_PETS.zip is still compatible with SEASONS.

v14.2 - I removed Plantophic-N potion because of that when they go to community lot they will change to green again. But I didnt give up that normal skin I made another feature "Make Skin.../(NOrmal/Plantsim)" in our Sim's Pie Menus (clicking your sim) so that we can manually change the skin of our plantsim. So if the game turns our normal skin plantsim to green, all we have to do is click our sim and "Make Skin...to Normal". This option is only available for plantsim. It is better to do it this way rather than messing up the global controller or making a local controller that will monitor plantsim on community lot. If you still want the Plantophic-N potion you can get the Buyable Plantophic-N potion at Insim.

UPDATED: 03/15/2007
<< v14.3 >>

- Added "Buy Produce and Fish" in SHOP ONLINE.

UPDATED: 04/19/2007
<< v14.4 >>

- Fixed buying eggplants issues.
- Added "School.../Study Time (Hours).../(1-10 Hours)", the length of hours that will do studying before taking a break (Requested by AnastasiaRenai)
- Added fallback routine for DeleteAllCharaters' users (tested once)

UPDATED: 09/10/2007
<< v15.0 BON VOYAGE >>

- Added recolour to Bonus Computer
- Added Buy Map, price $500
- MQ_Resurrect-O-Nomitron_Bank_PETS.zip is still compatible with SEASONS and BON VOYAGE.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

UPDATED: 09/26/2007
<< v15.1 BON VOYAGE >>

- Added Buy Jewelry/ShowMeOff Rack items, prices are default plus $25

Hi
I haven't had time to test thoroughly but I have had a few problems.
Delivery of food is fine. Study seems to work but I didn't get an option to choose what to study.
My major concern came when I tried to shop online. My Sim would reset. In other words, he leapt out of the chair and reappeared standing by the desk.
I have other mods but NONE that affect the computers.
If I ever find out what is wrong I shall let you know as this is a nice idea and I would prefer this to other methods of shopping at home.

I added BANK ONLINE and not global hack version.

I'm a little bit confused...

The hack works great with one exception:
In one of the screenshots above you can see a recolored alienware computer be used...well, in my game, the extra pie menu options don't appear on any custom-content-computer including the alienware one.

Did I do something wrong?

(talking about v3 - haven't tried v4 yet)

Hi, Vren, sorry if i forgot to remove the screenshot for alienware, i will remove that now. In my previous version (v1 and v2) I gave support to alienware but in v3 and v4 I removed it. About the custom computer, this hack applies only to all default cheap and expensive computer, those without an asterisk except for the recolored one.
Thanks for reminding me about the screenshot.

i installed the non global version, and everything is fine except when I make a deposit or check the bank account the pop up is blank, also the shop online-buy clothes option does not work. the sim disappears from the chair and reappears a few feet away. maybe you could fix that.

Hmm.. I'm going to wait until some more bugs are worked out before I try this one, but I will make a note to keep an eye on this thread.
What exactly does the banking online thing do? Does it let you pay bills? I'm confused.
Thank you so much for making this though!

(edit) Ok. I've changed my mind. I'll load it and give it a try. :-)

Hi, Kool24, like you I really like to have a bank in our sim that's why I tried to restore Shogal's bank plugin, I successfully made it EP compatible but sad to say it's buggy when you exit the game. So the best solution is to remove that feature. Thank you for giving your time to test it and I really appreciate it. I'll repost it as soon I find the solution or mabe create a new one.

Spiritseer,
I'm sorry if I made you confused, please dont panic, we're talking here the Bank Online feature, the rest features are all fine such as Shop Online, Xpress delivery, study skills and career. In my last uploaded file I disabled Bank Online feature to avoid using it. But I'm still looking for the solution I really want this Bank.

This works great. Too bad there's not a "Loan" or "Borrow" feature in the Online banking part. It would be nice for the newly made Sims to be able to borrow and pay back a loan for a nice house. Pescado has a money order hack but you have to be "friends" or "family" to send it, so the new Sims in the neighborhood will never have that option of recieving money without using "Motherlode".

All that aside this is very realistic and handy. Especially the "Online Shopping" :D
