Hide Try For Baby Options v1.03 for TS2BV v1.0p1
Made by: syberspunk

As requested, this mod basically hides/disables the Try For Baby Options. This is meant for players who want some kind of surprise when it comes to pregnancies. Use this in conjunction with Risky Woohoo and Quiet Pregnancy for optimum effect. If combined, unless you regularly use other mods (like the InSimenator) that have pregnancy related features, you won't realize your sim is pregnant until they start to show, and the options for a pregnant belly show up.

Note: Players who use JenFlower's TeenWoohoo, as maintained by jase439 over here MUST use the TeenWoohoo version.

Note: Players who use TwoJeffs' Preg for All Genders MUST use the Preg4All version. Thanks AmberDiceless for reporting this conflcit!


INSTALLATION:
This MUST be in your Downloads folder, typically found under:

C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Downloads


Compatibility:
Although It should work for all versions, I have only tested this in my game. It appears to work fine.

Edit: 5/22/2006
As per Jase's post, this mod is NOT compatible with the InTeenimater.

This hack is compatible with most, if not all mods by MATY crew (Pescado, TJ, and CBoy), dizzy, and probably more. Again, up to you to help me determine any possible conflicts.

This hack WILL conflict with TeenWoohoo. If you use JenFlower's Teen Woohoo, then you MUST use the Teen Woohoo version.

Edit: 5/31/2006
This hack may not work with any cloned objects such as LizzLove's various autonomous type woohoo beds and hot tubs.

REMINDER and fine print (to cover my ass ) :
Remember to ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE INSTALLING NEW HACKS. By using this hack, you agree to absolve me of any responsibility or liability for any potential loss of or damage to your data. You have been warned.

HOW TO REPORT: Conflicts, problems, or errors
I would appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback that is actually helpful. With that in mind, it would be helpful, when reporting any conflicts or issues, that you include the following:

1) thorough but reasonably brief description of what you were doing
2) clear, comprehendible explanation of your problem
3) list of hacks that may be related the woohoo
4) archived (.rar or .zip) of log produced by error

Posts which do not include a clear description of what your problem is will be pretty much ignored. (i.e. posts such as "This does not work! I am taking it out! You suck! Nice try! etc.") I can't and won't help you if you don't explain what's wrong.

Please be nice when trying to explain your problem and I might be nice and help you.

Finally, my Thank Yous go to:

J.M. Pescado, twojeffs, dizzy2, and jase439 for being excellent tutors and providing excellent models in their mods. As always, thanks to those creators who've put out some excellent modding tutorials, Quaxi and co for SimPE, and dizzy2 for disaSim2, and the finally letters T and S, and the number 2, all of whom, without which this mod would not be possible.

If I left anyone out, I apologize in advance. You know who you are and you deserve my thanks.

Yes, wonderful, but I have a couple of stupid questions.

Given that Jase439 is hopeful of releasing an OFB compatible inTeenimator within the next two weeks, is there any indication that this will be compatible?

In your last posted example picture I recognise the user-addition options of Adjust... and Casual... but not Selectable... What mod does this stem from?

Thanks, again.

Since the InTeen is a much more complex mod, and I personally haven't had the time to check out the code myself, I will pretty much say that this will NOT be compatible. Since it already conflicts with JenFlower's much more simpler version, I can only imagine that it would, in the very least have the same conflicts. We would probably have to consult Jase to be sure about it.

But I'm sure Jase would be amenable to possibly making a flavor pak for it. Or, if and when an OFB version is available, I will look into how feasible it would be to make an InTeen compatible version of this.

If I have time this weekend, I'll poke my nose around the NL version, and see if it would be an easy, quick fix. If so, then I'll gladly make an InTeen compatible version for testing (I currently do not use InTeen, obviously because I have OFB).

As for the Selectable option, that comes from the new and improved InSimenator, SIM version. It's a lot more convenient than typing the boolprop cheat in all the time. And yes, I know that I could just stick that into userCheats or whatever, but I don't want it on by default.

Ah hah!

That's why I don't recognise it. I gave up on InSim when it had such problems with one of the Sims 1 updates.

Oh, and I know exactly what you mean about not wanting it running all the time. I find that the easiest for me (with my InSim fobia - ) is to put an alias in the usercheats

I can answer this for you now. It will completely sizzle the brains right out of the InTeenimater, actually

I can not thank you enough for this! I always feel slightly guilty for making my sims try for baby. But they need a kid sooner or later. This is perfect! It'll happen when it happens. Thank you!
Test Subject

Default Thanks!
Thank you for making this! I've been using risky woohoo and silent pregnancy and the only flaw was the presence or absence of the try for baby option. I just installed this mod and I did notice a problem but I'm not certain it is related to this mod. When I sent my sims to bed to relax they would relax for a second or two and then suddenly be standing next to the bed. I have a number of hacks installed in addition to the base game and uni. Woohoo related ones are: risky woohoo bed, silent pregnancy and Triplets & Quads Ver 2.5 by Twojeffs at MATY. Let me know if there is any other info I can give you that will help.

I'll try and take a look at this soon. If you know how to turn on debug mode, please test this out with it on.

open the cheat box, type: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true

Then, direct the same sims into bed and have them relax like you did before. If you get an error again, with them 'jumping' up and standing next to the bed, you should get an error log. The dialog box should tell you where to find the error log. It will be a .txt file. If you can .zip it up and post it here as an attachment, or email it to me: syberspunk @ yahoo

It will help me track down the problem, if it is related to my mod.

Thanks

Ok, thanks for the error log. I'm not sure quite why this would produce an error... but I made some minor changes which should prevent this. Please re-download, test, and report back. Again, I just seem to be lucky and don't get these errors in my testing. :shrug: So I definitely need feedback.

If you still have problems, let me know if you are using any other hacks related to woohoo, which haven't been made by me, or any hacked objects like beds or what not, which may change and/or require the code that I've changed. Essentially this mod just 'turns off' those 'Try for Baby' options, so any code that depends on them might not work properly.

I was afraid that would happen. The error seems to show that, for some weird reason, Monique's Bank Controller is being referenced. This doesn't make sense because it shouldn't be involved with BedGlobals... :confused:

So first, question - Are you using any custom hacked beds (like LizzLove's autonomous bed) or any other custom hacked beds that do more things that normal, Maxis beds don't?

If so... try having your sims relax on a regular, Maxis bed. Do you still get the error?

If you still get it, try removing any hacked beds or any other mods that you might have that are related to beds or woohoo specifically. If you are using the version of Risky Woohoo that I made, that should be fine. If you are using JenFlower's Woohoo Teens, that is also fine (I have that one myself). If you are using InTeen, Jase has reported that this mod will definitely conflict.

If you still get the error, after removing the bed related hacks... I would try removing Monique's Bank Controller. I'm not sure what hack that is, or why it would conflict. I can't imagine it being the reason... but since I don't have the same set up as you or the same hacks, I don't know what else to suggest other than to take a wild stab and try removing it.

There could be a few reasons why this problem is popping up in your game:

1) You have a mod conflict

2) Your lot is screwed up

3) My mod doesn't work like it should :P


To be absolutely eliminate 3 as the reason, you can try disabling ALL of your other custom content. And ONLY use this mod by itself with regular Maxis beds. If you DON'T get an error at all, then most likely the reason is 1 - you have a mod conflict.

Then it would be up to you to use whatever method you prefer to hunt down the conflicting mod. This could be as painful as slowly adding in one hack at a time and checking back in the game, or adding in groups at a time. But most likely, the problem would be:

1) Any other mods related to beds

2) Any hacked or cloned beds

3) Monique's Bank Controller

Although I am very doubtful it is the bank controller. It is probably something with this Subqueue BHAV. Something is setting the Stack Object to the bank controller, which most likely is a coincidence. The Object ID of the bank controller probably just happens to match the Neighbor ID of a sim. This probably doesn't mean anything to you, but I just thought I would offer it as an explanation of why it is very unlikely the bank controller, but at least you know that might be the reason it is showing up in your error log. Your best bet would probably be to check for any other conflicting mods or hacked/cloned objects.

When I get a chance, I will try to do some more tests to see if I get the same problem.

I tried another lot without the bank controller and did not get the error. The bank controller came with "Hacked COMPUTER (Not Global) v11.1 << UPDATED 03/18/2006 << " by Monique here at MTS2. I appreciate your help with this. I should have tried a new lot before posting here. I don't know why that didn't occur to me. Anyway, thanks for a great mod!

I've got the same error. And I've got quite a number of custom content, too. Somehow it makes one feel content...

The error happens when I use standart beds and click on the partner, and it happens with LizzLoves autonomous bed

The unvoluntary interruption doesn't happen with christianlov's Easy collection (Easy Bed and Easy Clothing Booth ). I haven't tried regular clothing booths.

Attached error logs:
  • ObjectError_N006_t71911.txt: error log for the regular bed
  • ObjectError_N006_t72139.txt: error log for the atonomous bed with autonomy off
  • ObjectError_N006_t72355.txt: error log for the atonomous bed with autonomy on

Hope the logs will help

I very much doubt that, but to remove it, pretty much just like any other mod, just delete the file. But most likely, you have some other problem slowing down your game. :shrug:

And thanks to AmberDiceless for mentiong the conflict with the Preg4All mod. I've included a tested update, and it seems to work.

Also thanks to nikolaus and TBerry for your error logs. I should have recognized the error, but then I noticed that both of you do not have Nightlife, at least according to your profiles. I believe the problem was a format error. It should be fixed now. Please redownload, retest, and report back if you still have errors. Thanks.

Okay, my problem: the mod won't leave!

I've deleted the file from my downloads folder, but the game stil says its there and still applys during gameplay.

So I've tried

Restarting my computer, clean pack installer, disabling and enabeling custom content, it doesn't go away!

EDIT: PROBLEM SOLVED! Basically I downloaded the mod twice because I couldn't find the first in the downloads folder. I deleted the 2nd one and thought I had removed the mod. The 1st time I downloaded it I put it in the broadcast part of the sims 2 folder. I found this out when looking more closly at where the game said the mod was located

I really like the idea of the mod, and the fun of not knowing if your sim is preg.
But I have inteenimater and would like to be able to use them both at the same time, I was just curious to know if you are planing to make a compatilbe version?
thank you for the time you put in to these mods.
