This is a hack i made a few months ago, makes it so teenage sims dont have to goto school any more, and dont get penalized for not doing so.

it will conflict with any hack that changed bhav 0x7FBE051B:0x0000200B "Function - Does Sim go to School Today?", although it technically conflicts with inteen it will still function and not cause any bad effects with the processes of inteen as long as this is loaded after inteen.

Please Redownload the hack, i uploaded the wrong file before, its fixed now though.

Updates:
7/7/2006: Added NoSchoolForChildren, and NoSchool packages, the first is pretty selfexplanatory, the 2nd is basicly, no school for children or teens, it doesnt eliminate school all together, as you can still use nightlife cars to take kids to school. i may make a more interactive version in the future, perhaps a object or something that allows a more fine tuned system.


Compatibility:
This will work with the base game, and any EP, including pets.

I like the idea... But, does the school bus still appear and they are called to school and you must cancel it? Or does the school bus stop coming to pich them up... I like the fact that they are not punished but I still like them to go school.

This is nice for people who play there teens like adults. Just a word of warning though for InTeenimater users, it will conflict.

It will technically conflict, but as long as its loaded after itll be fine, inteen does close to this same thing by default, this just makes them not goto school period while teens, insted of after a certain point, it has no ill effects on inteen.

the bus will come if theres other sims in the house that have to go, Ie children, but teens wont even think of going, and if there aren't any children the bus wont even show up.

they should be able to both drive to school and be taken to school, as those interactions use a different school check.

How do you insure that this hack loads after Inteen? Is there a special way to make it do so, or do you put it in and pray it loads after?

Good hack, but one question probed here. How does one teen get the Scholar Award for college (the A-ranged grade subscription) with this hack intact?

Thank you for this, I often like some of my teens to be able to stay home.

And just to reiterate, it works normaly, as far as I can tell, with Inteen. I have both installed and nothing odd or strange happened.

This is awesome. But does it apply the no going to school for all teens by default, or can I choose which ones I don't want to go to school anymore?
