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!!

YES! I have been waiting for this! My sim is in love with the paper girl and she will never grow up... So this will allow me to move her in and grow her up finally. ^_^

What is history but a fable agreed upon?

Yeah, weird huh? The paper delivery people are all teens and I did not think about the "no grow up" possibility when I allowed my teen to form a relationship with her. Now he has grown up and she is still paper girl... The Sims 2 site said you can persue relationships with MOST npcs so I thought it was feasible at the time. Lol!

thanks guys! I try this to make the townies move in to a lot and age too. But i'm thinking about the automatic generation of the teens and kids townies to replace the others. Since the game don't have this like a main feature i don't know if this will happen. I'm testing to figure out if will not be a problem for this mod. If you find something wrong let me know.

It worked great! The only thing I ran into with the papergirl is it was really hard to get her to change out of her yellow uniform and change her hair. I had to do it about 3 times to take. No there are no problems.

I think that paper-people were probably not meant to move in seeing as how they are teens and all. Otherwise perfect!!!

Weird though - she had a unusual high amount of skills. If we are not meant to be able to get them in our families why do the come with so many skills? *ponders*

Sounds like she was meant to be a Sim Vac victim...

Ah this sounds wonderful! And ALOT easier than what I have been doing to age townies. Thank you so much for this. I know there are many who have been wishing for this hack. I'll post if I run into any problems

TNTMemphis - i don't think so. You can be friend of the reaper? This mod only affects the NPCs you can be friend. sorry for that. But you remember me of the Social Bunny. You can interact with him. I don't know if the interaction shows up for him too. If so, maybe this will be a bad thing... it will be able to cause problems in the game. Not sure.

FW Schultz - put in downloads folder. The interaction will appear when your sim have a good relationship score with the other.
Hmm, What does this do?..
#22 Old 14th Nov 2004 at 4:27 PM
@pinhead
The Social Bunny is in the 'Service NPC' family, just like the maid, mailcarrier, police, newspaper kid, etc. More then likely, if you ask a Bunny to move in, the game will generate a replacement one if its needed.

Thank you so much for this mod

Is it bad that I spend more time figuring out how to change data outside of the game rather then changing it inside?

Are you sure about that, loco? I will go to test this to make sure that will not go to cause problems in the game.

#24 Old 14th Nov 2004 at 6:46 PM
Yes, I'm sure it will generate new Bunnies. My current 'hood was started from scratch - no service NPCs in it at all. All of them, including a Bunny, have been generated automatically when the game needed them.
