EP UNI Version: (moveinallEP1.zip)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING!!!!
Uni version is not compatible with the patch!!!
If you installed the patch, don't download it until i found a way to extract the data from EP1 patch and make this mod compatible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

[file=e107_files/public/4807_moveinall.zip]4807_moveinall.zip[/file]
Original version (without the University Expansion): (4807_moveinall.zip)

Compatibility:

Insimenator (UV)- I download the latest version and looks that is compatible. (Dest, obj and Sim versions)

Inteenimator - Isn't compatible (inteenimator_B.package). And if you already had Inteenimator, don't need my mod. He made this feature there. Only use this mod if you aren't planning to use the Inteenimator.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update: 09/19/05

NIGHTLIFE VERSION released:

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=90810

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

03/06/2005 - Now with University EP version!

-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

This mod will make the interaction "Propose.../move in" for all ages. The Teen NPCs and Townies (kids and teens) are included. I made a few tests and work great. The toddlers weren't included.

Adult to teen = no problem
teen to adult = no problem
teen to elder = no problem
teen to kid = no problem

I don't tested yet with others types, so if you are interested just download the file.

This is my first try to make a modification on BHAV things. I don't know if this is 100% stable. I just made the action don't check the Age Test behaviour and enable the pie menu function to childrens and teens. Very simple and basic.

And another thing: the menu shows when the relationship is at a higher score.

i'm a brazilian guy... so sorry for the bad english.

[color=darkred]EDITED[/color]: Put the file in Downloads folder. Don't forget to backup your Neighborhood before use this mod. It was not fully tested yet but no serious problem was found so far.

[color=darkred]EDITED #2[/color]: I didn't change the behaviours of NPCs. The Social Bunny, despite you can interact also, do not have this option. My doubt was if the Social Bunny was considered as a teen or kid for the interactions. So, i edited the description for a better understanding. Only teen NPCs like the clerks and papergirl/boy can move in. Sorry for that.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Update: 03/06/2005

I made a version to have full functionally with the expansion.
Just download the moveinallEP1.zip
If you have the "TS2 only" version, don't forget to delete from your
downloads folder to include the EP version.

WARNING:
If you don't have the Expansion, get just the 4807_moveinall.zip file.


DOn't forget to make a backup of your neighborhood for security.
thanks and have fun!!

thanks this will come in handy,.. i've been using the SimPE which i dont really understand how to use the functions. I tried changing a townie child to a teen... it has the interaction of a teen but with a child's body. I dunno where i done it wrong.. hehe

#28 Old 15th Nov 2004 at 9:31 AM
As to the above on simPE, you must put them at the age below you want, then age them into their new body, unless you want adults in a kids body, which can be fun.

Has anyone said whether or not this is working for them? I am going to test it soon...

This sounds brilliant, I'll test it out A.S.A.P... I haven't thought much about it before, but getting the maid or paper-girl to move in would be fun! :D

smacksim - This mod works very well so far. The paper girl when i moved for my house was generated a replacement by the game. I didn't have no problem so far. But the test phase still continues. I will now try to move the clerks and see if the game also creates a replacement with no problem.

Works like a charm - albeit I'm not able to change the new family member's everyday clothing... the only options displayed by the wardrobe is the default nude skin, plus an empty skin (sim's head floats in air, no skin, nothing).

what kind of NPC do you get? with the newspaper girl i didn't see any problem. I change the clothes and like the adults npcs, i have a extra option (special) in my wardrobe for the newspaper cloth. Well, did you buy some clothes for change? are you using any wardrobe hack with extra options?

The NPC I moved in was Remington, the blonde teenage clerk. At first he didn't seem to age at all (yes, I had aging on), now he ages like the normal sims in the household, don't know what caused the glitch. Anyway, I'm able to change his every other clothing option minus the everyday clothing.

Ok! I made the test with clerks. Nothing wrong and the game generate other 2 clerks when i went to a community lot.

bruno - To change the clerks outfit and the newspaper girl/boy you have to Plan Outfit first (my game is in Portuguese so i guess this is the name for the menu in English). So, if you go only to Casual in Change Outfit menu they will change to the same outfit they have.

i have a little screenshot to you see:

<span class='smalltext'>[ 4807_planoutfit.jpg ][/i]

They had aged normally for me. I don't know what was wrong with your game.

I would say that is one of the essential mods. Now Dora is with his teen clerk in household. Great Job! (Valeu, amigo , cabeça de alfinete! - pra não ficar com a gíria)

Great, thanks so much!
Since it requires a good relation, does it work for kids inviting other kids? So they could invite their best friend to live with their family, instead of needing an adult in the family first to get a good relation too with the kid that should be invited to move in?

It doesn't work for adults inviting kids to move in. The option is there, but you get a really stupid error saying "What are you trying to do here?! You can't leave children alone in a house!" (or something like that... not an exact quote). I was attempting to move kids out of their mom's house and into their dad's house.

However, it works perfectly for other age groups, like teen inviting teen, kids inviting kids, etc.

Thanks!

You have the option to get the others members of the kid's house? You tried to move in others sims with this kid? maybe you get this error because you're leaving only kids in the house. I did not change anything about this. The kids can't live alone in a house. Sorry.
Well, i will have to check this out to see why you get this error. Thanks for your info.

The mom is still left in the house with the other kids, so they are not being left alone.

I have even tried moving all the kids in at the same time, so that no kids are left in the house with the mom.

The only way to move the kids in is to invite the mom to move in with the dad, and have her bring all the kids. The dad can't invite the kids to move in.

Maybe it's just this family. I will try with another family and let you know if an adult can move a child in.

Never mind. I think this is an incompatibility with another hack.

I removed all other hacks, and now my adults can invite children to move in.

I will try to figure out which hack is doing this.

Seems to work ok for me so far. Thankyou.
I got Meadow Thayner to move in and then I aged her with wintermuteai1's cube. She seems pretty normal!
Thankyou for this cool hack.

I'm very happy that it is working for all. But I am worried about the problem found by saramkirk. I don't have many hacks in my game. Although that i'm not having much time to play in the last days, I will wait to know which hack can cause this issue and i will try to see if this could be fixed.
saramkirk - You could see which hack is causing this for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated

I tried this once so far...my computer crashed before I remembered to save anything and haven't tried it since (No I don't think your hack did it!) It worked fine, except it gave me the option of moving in her 3 family members with her...this is a girl my teen was trying to score with...Once I had her in the house and could access her abilities and stuff I wasn't sure I wanted to keep her! *laugh* d- grades and absolutely no skill points...*blah* She was kinda a gothic style character not sure if maxis is trying to say something about that or not! *laugh* I am teasing!! Good job so far!
