Teen Enabled Woohoo Wants v1.08 for TS2AL v1.0p0
Made by: syberspunk

Note: Jase's InTeenimater and JenFlower's Woohoo Teens are now hosted at Simbology

This hack basically enables Woohoo related Wants for teens. I think twojeffs' originally had a hack to do this, but since it's pretty much considered taboo to mess with core files, many people have abandoned this type of mod. I decided that I wanted this back in my game, so I went about redoing it, and updating it for OFB. Theoretically... all types of woohoo wants should now show up for teens. This hasn't been fully tested, so I definitely would appreciate feedback from testers.

Note: Since it does modify what is essentially a core file, use this with extra caution. It would behoove you to take the following steps to preserve your game should anything unexpected or unwanted occur while using this mod:
1) backup YOUR Neighborhood BEFORE installing this mod!
2) backup the Core file(s) - Make a copy of the folder found in

For example:

If you have Celebration! Stuff
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSData\Res\Wants

Do this for whatever is the latest EP/SP that you have.

This assumes you used the default location for your installation.

Note the special instructions for installation - This Wants.package goes in the Wants directory/folder. It WILL NOT WORK if you put it in your Downloads folder.


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

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Open for Business\TSData\Res\Wants


Compatibility:
This should work for OFB/FFS.

For FFS and GLS use the OFB version.
For C!S and H&MFS use the Celebration! Stuff version.
For TSS you can try the Bon Voyage version (Untested).
For K&BIDS and IKEAHS you can try the Free Time version (untested).


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 is NOT compatible with any other hacks that modify the WantTrees.package - Unfortunately this means YOU CANNOT USE MORE THAN ONE MOD TO MODIFY THE WantTrees.package AT THE SAME TIME!

Consider yourself warned. :P

This hack IS compatible with Squinge's Uni Career enabled LTWs hack (which modify the Wants.package and WantTuning.package files).

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 to woohoo wants or any hacks that modify WantTrees
4) archived (.rar or .zip) of log produced by error

HOW TO PRODUCE AN ERROR LOG:
1) Open the cheat menu - Ctrl + Shift + C
2) Enable the debug mode - Type: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true
3) Hit Enter :P
4) Play as normal until an error occurs. If an error dialog box pops up, note the location of the error log and choose Reset. If the error pops up repeatedly, choose Delete and exit WITHOUT SAVING!
5) Post your error log here, preferably as a .zip or .rar archive.

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.

Special thanks to twojeffs who did all the previous footwork and pointed me in the right direction.

Expert Editing/Modding Info

As requested, here is a list of the Instances for each Want that I modified in the WantTree.package

0DCE32AA
0E198459

2FF0847A
2FF1AD3D

CDEAECA2
CDECA97E
CEA6853F
EDE49546
EDEAEC3C
EDFB48E3

This should be complete, but I don't remember exactly.

For people who are experienced enough with SimPE and want to use the changes I made in addition to other those made by (an)other hack(s) that also modify the WantTree.package, you can take your modded file and replace the Instances listed above with the ones in my modded file. However... if any of these Instances are already modified in your game, you will have to figure out how to resolve those conflicts/merge those changes.

I will not answer any questions regarding this if you choose to attempt to combine changes from more than one mod that affects the WantTrees.package. You are on your own. This of course, assumes you know what you are doing with SimPE. If you have never used SimPE or don't even know what it is, then you shouldn't even bother to attempt this.

Attempting to make changes or merge my mod with another effectively voids your 'warranty' and any 'tech support' that I would normally provide for this hack. :P

Is there another way to enable such romantic wants for teens WITHOUT modifying the TSDATA/Res folders? I do have Jenflower's hack, and it definitely makes sense to have the wants, but this kind of hack worries me since it goes into the actual MAIN Sims 2 folder, rather than the Downloads folder :S

No. There currently is no other way to make a mod for this, that I am aware of at least. The way that wants are defined is stored in these particular files. So... the only way to change how they work, and thus enable them for teens, is to mod those files. I understand your concern, but sorry, I personally don't know of any other way to do this.

Very good idea, but I would rather not get my game erased again because of a fudgie on my part. I have mostly teens, who do everything with everyone teen or older, and it would be nice if they wanted to do it, but I'm afraid for the safety of my simmies...

I have taken the liberty of testing this hacks for you. First of all, I have every EP besides the FFS one. I have the InTeeninmater installed and the only time I saw the adult wants for teens was when the teen was pregnant and considered an adult. With these hacks installed, teenenabledadultwants and teenenabledwoohoowants, all of my teens, pregnant or not, had adult/woohoo wants. My teens are having romantic wants with adults along with adults having romantic wants with teens. Also, my teens where having romantic wants with other teens. I installed these hacks a few days ago and have had no problems with their wants. If I find any problems, I will post it. So far, so good!
Thanks man!

Check the first reply (by me). I have updated that reply (which was originally 'Reserved' by me) with the list of Instances in the WantTree.package. I hope this helps. Good luck.

That is pretty odd. I haven't had any problems like this. It might be due to the fact that you only have the basegame? I have no idea if my hack would work in older versions of the game.

You can also try turning on debug mode and forcing the wants to reroll, or using other hacks to reroll the wants. See if that fixes things.

Otherwise, did you bother to back up your game Before installing this mod? If you are having problems where all the wants (and I presume by 'all' you mean all 4 slots?) are showing up as 'Tell Dirty Joke' then I suggest reverting to your backup. Your description isn't very clear or detailed. Sorry, I can't help any further.

So, would it be wise to wait until I get the expansions before downloading this? I have the inteenimator and it works fine, but all I have is the base game.

There is supposed to be a Sims 2 "Unleashed" kind of game coming out at the end of this year I believe? You will be able to have pets and take care of them. Thanks for the hack, syberspunk.

Holy moly! Ste, I was looking for something else and this popped up on my search! I have been wanting this since my very first copy of InTeen. This officially enters you on my "list" for this and your other mods. Thanks for this and I can't wait to test it out.
Now my question (since I am very tired right now) Do I need all three zipfiles from above or is the first one a combo of the other two?

Thanks,

*edit* Never mind the question, I guess I'm not that tired after all. I figured it out for myself.

Default Two questions
First, does anyone know, is this mod compatible with Pescado's Long Term Wants Variety mod? Yes, I do realize Ste said it is Not compatible with other 'want' related mods, but he also indicated that it Was compataible with most of Pescado & Co's work.

Secondly, is anyone successfully using this mod with the base game only?

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem as FoxyLady415 did before she realized that she
"backed it up." What do you mean by "back it up"? I tried using debug mode,
but that's not really working. Hopefully what I'm saying is clear enough and
maybe you could help me.

I've tested it on my Mac with University and Nightlife installed with both Woohoo Teens and InTeenimater (not at the same time of course). The hottest thing my romance teens can think of is smooching. Even on a date when any normal romance adult only thinks of woohooing.

So far any hacks I've downloaded work perfectly on the Mac version. Just the core files seem different on Macs. I've got no probelms with replacing the wants tree, the game appears not to be unstable, it just doesn't seem to have the desired effect.

I had a similar "problem" with a vampire wants for all wants tree replacement. I didn't work.

Yes, it is compatible with Pescado's LTW Variety mod. For the most part, I use almost everything in the Director's Cut. If there is a specific conflict with any of his mods (that I am aware of) I will explicitly state so.

This remains to be determined yet... but thus far, it doesn't look like it works. I currently do not have a set up to test this myself. I can only go by what other users have reported. And unfortunately, I have no plans to make older compatible versions at the moment.

By 'back it up' I mean that you should have made a 'backup' copy of the original files in the case that something should go wrong or when you have to install a new EP, SP, or patch. Typically, installing a new EP, SP, or patch requires that all core files must be unmodified. That is, they must match the version found on your latest EP or SP. Otherwise, you will have problems trying to install a new EP, SP, or patch.

You should always make 'backup' copies of any core files before overwriting them with game mods. It is also highly recommended that you make a 'backup' copy of your game data (almost everything found in the 'EA Games' folder) just in case 'bad stuff' happens. :P

If you don't have a backup of the original files, you can probably find them on your CD. Just look for the file on the CD from your most recent EP,SP and overwrite the file. This should restore your game to normal.

Hrm. I have no idea what the problem might be with Mac users. Have you found that all Mac users experience the same problem with any mod that changes the Want Tree file? Unfortunately, I don't know how to help you.

We long-term core game only players are something of a rare breed, but there are more of us than you might imagine. I think I may go ahead and test this in my game. I don't play teens too often, but as soon as I do, I'll make a note to report back with my experience.

"If you don't have a backup of the original files, you can probably find them on your CD. Just look for the file on the CD from your most recent EP,SP and overwrite the file. This should restore your game to normal."

Since I do not have backups of the original files, I checked my 'The Sims 2 University' CD. I looked in my 'The Sims 2' Folder and checked out those folders..."Cameras", "Collections","Saved Sims", etc. But none of them seemed to contain the file that you said I should look for.

What file am I trying to overwrite?

Gaaahh. I'm so lame. haha.
