ONLY FOR "OPEN FOR BUSINESS"!

If you are looking for Uni or Original Version, go to this thread:

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=12924

Nightlife version is here:

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

Incompatibility:

jase439's InTeenimator OFB version (If updated to OFB)
JM Pescado's No Townie/NPC Move-In Amnesia (if updated to OFB EP)
Squinge's Townie No memory loss for OFB (located at this site)


quick note:
this isn't a complete list of hacks that can conflict with this mod.
i can't know all the hacks that are out there. So, if you notice
something strange, try remove all hacks and test this one alone.
if everything is fine, with other hacks removed, you have a conflict.
just post here what hacks do you use and i will take a look if i know
who made it.
if the problem persist, without any other hacks installed, please, report it here.


ALWAYS MAKE A backup to test mods and hacks!!!

Here's located the OFB version of Moveinall mod.

The features are:

- You can "propose/move in" to children and teens;
- You can use children and teens to propose adults, elders, childrens and teens;
- You can select in a dialog if you like to let the game generate memories based in CAS or keep the memories that was adquired by the Sim with the time played. (the dialog appears only for townies)

You can choose 2 version of this mod:

* moveinall_v2_EP3 - Original relationship required to propose. The changes are
only enabling teens and children to use the proposition.

* moveinall_nofriends_v2_EP3 - You can propose to Sims that are not friends and
the proposition never will be rejected. If the Sim has a relationship -10/-10 to 100/100 the "move in" menu will show up.

Observations:
When you propose to teens or children, if you erase the memories using
the dialog, the game will delete all memories. So, i create this dialog to
avoid this problem.
Maxis made that only Young Adults that are Townies can be proposed. Make
sure that the Young Adult is a townie on the College neighborhood to the proposition appear.



Dialog option:


No CAS history option selected: (see memory section)



I hope that no problems appear with OFB versions.
if problems show up, please, let me know.

have fun!

------------------------------------------------
UPDATE (03/21/06)

new improved version is out.

- removed the Semi-Global Sim Pie Menu
- fixed a problem with calculations of Simoleons when moved in.
(this weird problem was *probably*caused by something with the old version of PJSE BHAV editor.. I don't know what caused that, but recreating with a new version everything looks normal now)

Should now be compatible with others hacks that use the PersonGlobals pie menu without problems.
Anyway, others hacks that use the same BHAVs that i changed will still be incompatibles (any other hack that changed "move in" BHAVs).

------------------------------------------------
UPDATE (05/12/06)

small fixes:
- fixed the pie menu not showing to teens and children when another sim has
a higher priority interaction running
- the calculations of simoleons added to the house when a sim is moving in
were corrected, but maxis was making the code to generate the value wrong in the dialog.
Now the exact amount of simoleons is been informed in the dialog.


New Version Added:
*moveinall_v2_unidorms-EP3
*moveinall_nofriends_v2_unidorms-EP3

Syberspunk gave the idea and helped me out with a new feature for this mod.
Now, if you play in University dorms, you can propose dormies to your household.
thanks a lot, syberspunk!

Since this feature will only benefit who has OFB + UNI installed, i'm including as a new option for download. OFB is required

________________________________________________________________
make sure to use only one version and to remove the old version that you installed. Unfortunately now, the little Fix for drinking the "Vamprocillin D" with direct click on the sim is removed. We hope that maxis fix this problem someday or we can only drink it removing from inventory first. :/

EDITED:
syberspunk released a fix for the Vamprocillin problem. You can download this fix here:

I placed the wrong file just in moveinall_EP3.zip. The nofriends is right.
Now the correct version is up.

If anyone got it until now, please redownload it.

sorry... my mistake.

Just to help testing : Can you tell what could be wrong with OFB, or have you an idea where to search ?

I've used the NL version with OFB and got nothing wrong (except the usual every new exp batch of bugs). As i use this mod mainly for townies memory loss I wondered about it's compatibility and came here just to see. Glad you made a new version so fast but for testing purpose what did you find that could be wrong with the new EP ?

Well, as you are working on a new version I have a suggestion : Could you replace 'do you want to erase the memory of this townie' by 'the memory of this sim', as it's quite weird when the moving sim is NOT really a townie but a playable character from another family moving in.

Well... sometimes hacks will appear to work with no changes, but there might be some necessary changes in the new EP that are specific to that EP because of new objects, options, or types of sims. For example, now that they are Servos, some of the code was changed to include checks for that. On the surface, these changes are invisible to the user, but if a hack is not updated to account for these changes, you will run into problems later.

Hrm. Maybe this is a problem with using the NL version in OFB? Are you now using the OFB version and the dialog box is still showing up for playable sims?

According to the features in the first post:

- A little Fix to drink the "vamprocillin D" using the Sim Menu. Maxis enabled only for childrens (??? they can't be vampires) and i change it correctly


Theoretically, the option should not show up for other playable sims. It is supposed to only show up for townies.

Please make sure you are using the correct version of the hack for your game, and that you do not have any conflicting hacks as mentioned in the first post. If you are still having the same problems, I suggest coming back and posting again with the details of your problem, possibly including which version of the hack you have, how many EPs you have, and maybe even a list of hacks that you think might be conflicting with this hack, but was not mentioned in the first post. This will probably help pinhead figure out what is going wrong, if indeed there is a problem.

Hi pinhead...Just to let you know, the 'move in _no friends' conflicts with one of Thomas Riordan's (Green Sims) hacks. His 'change clothes OFB Edition' uses a pie menu for clicking on the sim to change clothes rather than using a dresser. Your hack overrides his pie menu making it unavailable. Not sure if it happens with the 'move out teens' hack also, but it may be worth a look-see. Hope this is helpful in some way. Thanks for all the hacks you do for us all, much appreciated. Tracy

It's just because some new code was adding to call some of new features that only OFB have.
And for sure you need to use a version for each expansion because maxis always is adding more interactions when you click in a Sim person. Unfortunately, the move in feature is stored in this Pie Menu. To make the children and teens use this interaction i need to enable the pie menu also, so this is why i need to update for each expansion. sadly.

I see. But are you sure that is a playable character and not a townie? The dialog only show up to townies. If you move in someone from other family lot the dialog will not show. I will take a look at it.

Oh!! nice to know!
thanks for your information Braveheart (Tracy).
i will include in the incompatibility list.

moveoutteens isn't using the main Sim pie menu. Only newspaper and the 2 maxis computers.
so, no problems with this one.
I will try to contact Thomas if i have an idea to eliminate this conflict (i have an idea already)

meanwhile, you can try do this:
open the moveinall package with SimPE and delete the pie menu function that is there.
open thomas' hack and find the pie menu function group ID 0x7F01EC29.
find the string 0xD1 and set to teens and children.
commit and save.
should work properly now.
simple. :D

He's probably doing it right now or will do it in the near future, Pinhead, so if the hack was incompatible before it sure will be incompatible with the update. You are right. Maybe PrivateSim didn't know about it.

My apologies. You are both right, I used the NL version when I had the dialog box about the playable character. it's no more there with OFB version.

Ok, it's the interaction pie menu, then it's useless to report the bugs with the photobooth, the hottub or some animations playing backwards... Except if you are interested in fixing them :nod: ....Just joking.

I made many moves for the last 2 days and there was no problem so far in any configuration. All move-in options are available and the memories are perfectly kept with townies, playable characters and service NPC's.

Thanks again for this nice work.

Would it be at all possible to add the ability to "Move In" dormies while living at a dorm. Essentially, I would like a 'non-cheaty' way to make dormies part of the dorm household and be selectable without resorting to the debug cheat or the insimenator, as I don't know if those will properly set them as part of the household, or only makes them selectable by changing the selectable bit on their Person Data.

It would be nice if this was available for dormies who live both in the same dorm or elsewhere. If the sim was from outside the current dorm, then the game would treat it as adding a new selectable sim, and kick out a dormie to make space. If the sim is from the current dorm, then do all the things that make them selectable and part of the household just like adding a new selectable sim, only you obviously don't have to kick anyone out. Is this possible?

I thought about toying with this myself, but I figured any hack I made would most likely conflict with yours. And since I figured it would be a closely related feature to your hack, I might as well request it, as other people might want the same functionality.

Hi syberspunk!

well, i can try that but i'm not sure if it not cause too much problems . I can't promise anything about this request, but i will give it a try later.
Anyway, if you found a way to do, let me know and maybe we can colaborate with this mod. But i'm affraid that will take a lot of time to make a stable release.

I have good news! (well, i guess is good news... lol)
I finally made a version 2 for this mod that remove the necessity of the Main Sim Pie Menu. Thanks for some examples that i got from other hackers (Dizzy, Pescado, CrammyBoy and ebruere).

Now, the new improved version is out.

- removed the Semi-Global Sim Pie Menu
- fixed a problem with calculations of Simoleons when moved in.
(this weird problem *probably*caused by something with the old version of PJSE BHAV editor.. I don't know what caused that, but recreating with a new version everything looks normal now)


Should now be compatible with others hacks that use the PersonGlobals pie menu without problems.
Anyway, other hack that use the same BHAVs that i changed will still be incompatibles.
