Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a cloned computer (cheap and expensive) and a light computer by Sunair.

UPDATED: 10/20/2006
<< v13.0 PETS >>

- Made a little tune-up based on concerns.
Here are my old features that I didnt upload before:
- Added "Private School Fees (ON/OFF)", your sim (child/teen) will automatically be admitted to a private school but you will pay private school fees everyday the amount is based on your sim's school Grade. (Requested by Sandilou, I think two months ago)
- Added "Auto Move In to College (ON/OFF)", your sim (teen) will automatically move in to college if his age days left is one day before turning into Adult and if his Wants is "Go to College" on that day.
- Added "Chat with... Frat Member and SS Member", for easy searching of Frat and Secret Society members. Because if you are going to hunt them in community lot sometimes some of them are not wearing their uniform, so I made an Online forum for them that will shows to us who are frat and SS members. This feature is also available for Teen in order for them to advance their relationship with them (frat and SS) before entering College.
- Added "Auto child Banking", your sim (child) will autonomously deposit 10K or 20K into his bank accounts for College fund if his bank accounts is zero and your household fund is greater than 10K.
- Added "Auto Withdraw All", your sim (elder) will autonomously withdraw all his bank accounts if his age days left is one day before meeting with Grim Reaper.
- "Work At Home" and "Pay Bills Online" can now be accessed in your sim's pie menus (click on your sim).

UPDATED: 10/21/2006
<< v13.1 >>

- Added "Shop Online/Buy Pets". It will appear beside your sim.

UPDATED: 10/27/2006
<< v13.2 >>
- Updated "Find a Job". (Reported by ladykatsim)
- Added "Bank Online.../Auto Child Banking is (ON/OFF)". But still all (Auto College, Private School and Child Banking) defaults are ON.

UPDATED: 11/04/2006
<< v13.3 >>
- Changed default to OFF (Auto College, Private School and Child Banking)
- Added buyable Transformer Potions (Vampire and Werewolf) in "SHOP ONLINE.../Gypsy..".

UPDATED: 11/20/2006
<< v13.4 >>
- Made English as default language to reduce filesize, to easy for me to edit it and to support all languages.
- Added the ff options:
"Bank Online.../Transmit Money.../To Household Funds.../(Playable/Sim Bin)" - send money to playable neighbor sims and sims who are in family bin, the money will be added to their household funds.
"Bank Online.../Check Money.../Household Funds.../(Playable/Sim Bin)" - inquire household funds of playable neighbor sims and sims who are in family bin.
- Removed "global text" taken from computer globals but still two global bhavs left, one is "sit in" that handles the stomping of feet when the computer is in use then someone want to use it and the other one is "ct-ring" that handles the no wake up when cellphones rings.

UPDATED: 03/03/2007
<< v14.0 SEASONS >>

- Added "Buy Collar" and "Buy Video Games" in SHOP ONLINE. (Requested)
- Added "Study Badges.../Gardening" and "Study Badges.../Fishing" (Requested)
- Added Seasons career rewards
- Enabled autonomous of Play SSX, but I inserted a conditions they would only autonomous play if their Fun level is below 50% and will automatically stop playing if their Fun reach 100%.
- I returned back "School.../Study Skills..." to work like OFB-Write Article where you can assign sim to study skills without earning money and badges. (Requested)
- Added "Outerwear" in SHOP ONLINE
- Added "Gypsy.../Plantophic-C" and "Gypsy.../Plantophic-X" in SHOP ONLINE, a potions for transforming your sim to plantsim and plantsim to sim.
- is still compatible with SEASONS.

v14.2 - I removed Plantophic-N potion because of that when they go to community lot they will change to green again. But I didnt give up that normal skin I made another feature "Make Skin.../(NOrmal/Plantsim)" in our Sim's Pie Menus (clicking your sim) so that we can manually change the skin of our plantsim. So if the game turns our normal skin plantsim to green, all we have to do is click our sim and "Make Normal". This option is only available for plantsim. It is better to do it this way rather than messing up the global controller or making a local controller that will monitor plantsim on community lot. If you still want the Plantophic-N potion you can get the Buyable Plantophic-N potion at Insim.

UPDATED: 03/15/2007
<< v14.3 >>

- Added "Buy Produce and Fish" in SHOP ONLINE.

UPDATED: 04/19/2007
<< v14.4 >>

- Fixed buying eggplants issues.
- Added "School.../Study Time (Hours).../(1-10 Hours)", the length of hours that will do studying before taking a break (Requested by AnastasiaRenai)
- Added fallback routine for DeleteAllCharaters' users (tested once)

UPDATED: 09/10/2007
<< v15.0 BON VOYAGE >>

- Added recolour to Bonus Computer
- Added Buy Map, price $500
- is still compatible with SEASONS and BON VOYAGE.


UPDATED: 09/26/2007
<< v15.1 BON VOYAGE >>

- Added Buy Jewelry/ShowMeOff Rack items, prices are default plus $25

I stopped using the delivery man and started using boolProp to instantly fill-up the fridge. This wasn't to save money, but because I was so sick of it running out in the middle of the night and waking everyone up (not to mention the idiotic dancing and carrying-on from the delivery people). That sort of thing (which I suspect is deliberate) really irritates me!

Now my Sims can pay for their food again (which I would much rather they did - I have to pay for mine after all) so thanks very much for this. Will try it out and see how it goes.

I'm glad that it works according to plan although just recently when I tried to review the scripts I found out that there were some duplications in my scripts, so I dry run again and tested it, launched the game compared it with the original one, and found no problem, so I'm not going to edit it so that we are all using the same version.
Kindly inform me if you find any problem.

Hi, Cinderella2005, I'm sorry and forgive my ignorance if I didnt get this "It does not function to marvelous" Does it mean that it's not functioning well to you?

If I select Chinese food and say no to delivery, no money is deducted but the food appears anyway. The other 2 function work normally tho.

Monique - I already use Inge Jones' no refill fridge hack (where it refills automatically at midnight) but it's a global hack (it overrides all fridge bhavs). Perhaps you could consider making this a global hack so it's not directly tied to a computer? Just a thought. I'd definitely use this to order pizza and Chinese food, though. :D

I just thought of something... in order to make it global, you might have to test with the other global computer hacks, like Pescado's novel writing status bar hack. Perhaps you might want to just tie this to the computer so you don't have to do such extensive testing. But if you have the time, it might be interesting to do.

Well, go back to the drawing board least just one logic error for now

daysies, I was thinking that before making this a global hack coz not all of us like the cheap computer and not to mention that there are a lot of recolored computers out there that makes the game more fun. Dont worry I'm willing to go through extensive testing (modding is fun as long as I know a way how to do it and if I dont know it's not fun like the one I requested before I still dont know how to do it :weep: ). Let's consider this one as a pilot testing and wait for feedback. I think it's not hard to convert it as a global hack for I didnt mess up the original codes I'm just gonna add my scripts there just my opinion and of course following your advice by the book. :salute:

hi, niquel, to figure out which computer hack is causing that problems, here is my suggestion, first backup your "downloads" folder (cut and paste to other directory) then create a new downloads folder then place my computer hack there without any other hacks just my computer hack. Play the game and test it.
Then do the same procedure or add one by one the other computer hacks that you downloaded in order for you identify which one is causing it.

I hope that this suggestion would help you.
