Description:
This small hack enables single living teens to Go out (available from 6pm to 10 pm) and to Sneak out (available from 10pm to 12am). The hack should work with all game versions. If not, I'll surely hear about it very soon


Features:
- Single living teens or teens without guardians can make appointments to Go out / Sneak out
- Time range for Go out and Sneak out as usual
- Teens with guardians (parents and other nuisances) still need to "Ask for Persmission to Go out"
- Wants "Go out with..." and "Sneak out with..." are still satisfied
- Overwrites an ingame function, but will (hopefully!) have no other effect than described here


File(s) in ZIP:
1. CtfG_SoloTeensGoOut.package



Installation / Uninstallation:
To install, simply extract the file(s) into your Downloads folder in "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2".
To uninstall, remove or delete the file.


Known problems:
1. Teens and non-family adults living together may lead to "Go out" option not appearing at 6pm to 10pm. Please read "Which version do I need?"


Update 2006-10-30
I wrote an alternate hack named "CtfG_DontAskForPermission" because my version for single living teens does not work properly when a teen lives together with a non-related adult. In this case, the option to Go out simply will not appear when using the phone. This hack is an alternative and does not work together with the hack for single living teens! Also, this hack prevents teens who live with their parents from having to ask for permission, so please decide for yourself which version you need.


Which version do I need?
- If you have a neighborhood with only single living teens and teens who live with their parents, use the file "CtfG_SoloTeensGoOut.zip".
- If there are teens in your neighborhood who live together with non-related adults (friends, lovers, spouses etc.), use the file "CtfG_DontAskForPermission.zip".
- Update: If you have PETS installed, use one of the files ending on "_PetsVersion.zip".


Update 2006-11-02
Pets-compliant: No. Though "Go out" and "Sneak out" appear in the phone's pie menu, selecting these will result in "Crank call". Will be fixed when the new SimPE is out.


Update 2006-11-03
Both versions are now ready for EP4-Pets. Single living teens may go out / sneak out again


Update 2007-03-30
Pets version runs without any problem with SSN, so there is no need to modify or update it.


Update 2008-01-08
The PETS version also works with BV. If you do NOT have Pets or Seasons, but Bon Voyage, please use the Pets version. Or, in general: Always use the version of the latest Extension Pack you have installed.

Update 2008-04-01
This object works with EP7 "FreeTime". No changes necessary. Please use the PETS version for FreeTime.

Have fun!

Am I the only one to notice that your model only has female acquaintances (and girlfriends)? Then again, my favorite teen recently brought home his first boyfriend, so I guess I can't complain. ^_^ Downloading and thanking as usual!

She's not the only one with a female preference... I downloaded a family of 8 people, and to sort them out, I let all the teens move out into their own houses. I then brought them through the first school day, saved the lots and then played other families. But... All these teens had a preference for their own gender, and thanks to the lousy autonomous flirt programming since Nightlife, they made thousands of contacts while on community lots. Females only with females, males only with males. I'll never download families again! *laughs*

@ lizard_luver & eLECTROcutE!: Just let the parents move out without the teen. Or (if that object works for you) use my TeenStar PC to let the teen move out

All:

Just ran into a problem with a teen living together with a non-related adult. In some cases, the option "Go out" will not appear at 6pm. Only "Sneak out" at 10pm will be available.

Solution for this:
1. Let the adult move out (best around 6pm, so the next steps can be performed)
2. Make the affected teen(s) active (one by one, if more then one teen)
3. Select any phone and choose "Call"
4. Now the option "Go out" should appear
5. Repeat steps 2 - 4 for each teen in the household
6. Save the lot, exit it, select the adult from step 1 and move him/her back in

The problem results from certain relation conditions. A non-related adult is neither Guardian nor Not-Guardian. Being an adult, s/he *should* be a parent from the TS2 main program's point of view, but since there exist no relations, none of either conditions passes the internal test. Moving out the adult resets all relative's values, and selecting the phone's "Call" option then resets the teen's values. Now, when the adult moves back in, the TS2 program will regocnize that there exist no relations, and everything will be fine again.

The hack is in the language you have selected when installing the game. It does not affect any text; it simply displays something which - under certain circumstances - does not appear.

Make the adult active, select the newspaper and choose "Find new place". Or read the game's manual

This is very nice, thanks.

By the way, I had a single living teen use the "go out" option on the phone, and he never came back, lol. His needs were in the red for 2 days, and I had to restart my game Has this happened to anyone else?

Isn't that a girl's name?

Yes, it is possible. First, you have to make a family with 1 teen and 1 adult at the minimum. Then, move them into a house anywhere. You'll then need to kill the adult however you want. Then, the teen will be the only person. (Social Workers don't come for teens.) :D
Also, if you had kids or toddlers in that family, they won't be taken away because the teen is considered their guardian.
