Edit 10/21/2011: Version 1.22/Generations is compatible with patch 1.26/Pets.

Edit 8/1/2011: Version 1.22/Generations is compatible with patch 1.24/Town Life Stuff.

Updated for patch 1.22/Generations. File has 1.22 in front of it.

Compatible with Late Night EP and patch 6.0 and above.

Those elevators sure take their sweet time going from floor to floor, don't they? Well, as requested by a few people, here is the elevator mod!

There are different flavors, slow, elevator (which is medium), fast and very fast. Only choose one!

Elevators usually take around 10-15 sim minutes to go from floor to floor, depending on if sims get confused and whatnot.

Well with the slow mod, it will take them around 20-25 sim minutes to go from floor to floor!

Too slow for you? Well then try the elevator mod, that takes around 5-10 sim minutes to go from floor to floor!

Not fast enough? Well the fast mod will take them 3-5 sim minutes!

Still too slow? Try very fast, which will take them 1-3 sim minutes! Any faster and they might be flung out of the elevator!

Note: Times may vary due to computers. On a high end/medium computer, these are what the stats are. On a very low end computer, I'm told it takes 30 sim minutes - 40 sim minutes without the mod, the slow one takes over half an hour in sim time, the elevator mod (medium) takes 25 sim minutes - 28 sim minutes, the faster one takes 10 sim minutes - 15 sim minutes (more like 15) and the very fast one takes 5 sim minutes - 7 sim minutes. But that's on a really low end computer that lags and doesn't play the game very well.

Yes! This is perfect. I almost never use apartments/elevators because they were so slow. This mod is practically a game saver for me, now I might be able to enjoy LN apartments more

Wasn't as if the elevators are making any other stops.. Waiting for an elevator for ten or fifteen minutes was just simply annoying..

Thanks for this mod... :D

Thanks! This is just what I wanted. I can't tell you how many times my sims decided to hit a club at 11:30, but by the time they took the subway and waited for the elevator, the club would be closing before the had a chance to bribe the bouncer. I just downloaded the "very fast" version. Hopefully this won't mean the elevator woohoo is 1-3 minutes too!

Working on getting the faster subway uploaded.

I didn't change the woohoo time, so that should be the same. Feel free to check it and let me know though.

Thank you for this. However I found that my sim would go into the elevator and then do the stupid frantic motions of being stuck! I do have the latest Master controller and story progression from Twallan. I don't know if it was that that was causing this. Just thought I should let you know. I'm not a modder so don't know why this is happening.

Thank you soooo much for this! I'd be in the same boat about the ruddy club closing by the time they finally get there!

Hmm weird...I use Twallan's mods too and didn't have this problem. Did you use Delphy's Dashboard Tool to check for conflicts?

Hmm don't know why that would be happening, never showed up in testing. Did you check to make sure you didn't have any conflicting mods?

Thank you, that was highly needed! I grabbed the very fast one, those high rises won't be a problem anymore ^^

Edit: I changed to the Faster version, gosh the very fast was too fast ^^

wawa82G, that is a problem in the vanilla game itself, it's not caused by the mod but by the game. It happened to me when I first got LN, so way before that mod was released... Just reset the sim who's stuck in the elevator

This is a fantastic mod, because damn, waiting for the elevators was a pain. Will this conflict with upcoming patches do you think? I'm wondering if it will work with Generations.

Not sure, will be getting my game any time now today, and once EA releases the new patch I will be updating my mods.

Edit: Updated.
