2008-08-31: This fix was rolled into Stuff Pack Objects Fix Collection for Apartment Life in Apartment Life. If you have AL, remove this fix and get the new AL fix.

2008-07-17: Updated to v1.01. Wrong animation of Elite & Gothic armoires was fixed. Also fixes Store Deco armoire, if this fix is loaded after Deco armoire.


*****************


Yet another fix for cleaning up EAxian mess. EAxis "updated" some Teen Style Stuff objects for FreeTime, but they just never learn to do it right.
  1. Tinkering is now enabled for Teen TV.
  2. Teen Computer can be placed on OFB shelves properly.
  3. Annoying popup tooltips on Teen TV and Teen Vanity were removed.
  4. Wrong animation of Elite & Gothic armoires was fixed.
    (Also fixes Store Deco armoire, if this fix is loaded after Deco armoire.)



This fix is for FreeTime Only! It won't work for pre-FT game, as EAxis changes the group of fixed SP objects for no sensible reason.
If you don't have FT but want to use BV functions on Teen computer, check out my BV fix for Teen computer and boombox.

All my other fixes for Teen Style Stuff Pack were rolled into this fix in FreeTime. As of FreeTime, they are now obsolete/redundant. If you were using any of fixes listed below, remove them.

Several people told me that Hack Conflict Detection Utility reports a conflict between this mod and Store Deco armoire. It's because this mod fixes wrong animation of Store Deco armoire, as I already said above. Just ignore the conflict, it's harmless. Make sure that this mod is loaded after Store Deco armoire to fix the wrong animation.
It does not conflict with my decorative slot mod, either.


Installation:

The installation locations are different for each file.


LdDarcy_TSSObjectDataFix_FT.package

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.
(Or in a subfolder of Downloads folder.)


zLdDarcy_TSSTVTinkerFix_FT.package

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 FreeTime\TSData\Res\Overrides
(or the corresponding folder on your system if your game isn't installed in C:\Program Files)

DO NOT remove z- prefix in the filename. It is for ensuring that the fix is loaded after SP objects, overriding original settings.


Changelog:

v1.0: Initial release.
v1.01: Animation fix for two TSS armoires and Store Deco armoire was added. (2008/07/17)

What? They are STILL forgetting to update stuff pack stuff in the newer EPs? (Not that I kinda remember seeing the slap dance enabled on the GLS stereo.)

(EDIT: Is "Watch Movie" a new Freetime interaction?)

This is perfect, however does it also include OFB/BV/Uni interactions on the Teen comps? That's the only reason I never use them.

I'm not conceited, conceit is a fault and I have no faults.

FreeTime updated pie menus of Teen computer and stereo. All functions up to FT are now enabled in Teen computer. EAxis forgot OFB shelf placement value for Teen computer though, so it wouldn't sit on OFB shelves without my fix. Talk about lack of taking care of detail.

I already made BV fix for Teen Style Stuff Computer and Stereo some time ago. If you don't have FT, you should use BV fix instead.

Thank you so much for constantly fixing these stupid mistakes.
Are the tooltips where the name of the object appears next to the cursor when you hover over them? If so do you think you could remove them from the Arcade machines that came with University as well?

Yes, those tooltips should appear only in Buy/Build mode. Live mode tooltips are EVIL. I'll make a Uni Arcade tooltip fix soon. If you know any other object with the same problem, please let me know.

It's good you are here to fix EA's stuff, they are sooo lazy that it's frightening!

But i use Numenor's "put custom objects on shelves", do i need the fix you made?

If you're using LESS version of Numenor's fix, you still need my fix. Numenor's fix allows the computer to be placed on OFB shelves, but without my fix the computer would sit off center on the shelf. That's because the default setting of Numenor's fix is 6 objects per one shelf. For big objects like computer, the shelf placement value should be 0 (big objects), not 2 (small objects).

If you're using MORE version, you wouldn't notice the difference. I've never used MORE version of Numenor's fix. It is my understanding that MORE version ignores EAxian shelf placement value altogether, forcing the shelf placement value of every object to be 2.

I suggest that you get my fix though, as my fix addresses tooltip and tinkering issues as well. Whether you have MORE version or LESS version, my fix wouldn't conflict with Numenor's fix anyway.

This is great that you fixed another EA mess up.
They need to hire a new team because they messed be burned out.
I do notice how they will make some objects that the community has already made.
Thank You.

Both files are included in LdDarcy_TSSObjectsFix_FT.zip. I prefer downloading all needed files in one single zip.

Unlike TVs, boomboxes and computers do not have Tinker option in the first place. Even the base game boombox and computers do not have Tinker option. This fix only restores missing function for TV that should have been available. It cannot add a brand new function to totally different objects.
