Testers wanted for a No Privacy mod (Edit - 10-16-05 All EPs compatable)

[Edit: Tested and code checked for Uni and Nightlife compatabilty - Passed!]

Another global mod. This one removes the shooing and door locking of the bathroom. So for those of you that don't mind Sims barging in on each other while on the toliet or taking a shower, here is the hack for you.

I wrote this because I was tired of having to have 3 or 4 bathrooms in my houses just so Sims would not pee on the floor. One sim would take a nice long bubble bath, lock the door, and all the other sims would have to find another bathroom or pee themselves. The only sims that would share a bathroom were sims that are in love. So I fixed that.

There have been a few other No Privacy mods but they only partially worked. I dug until I found the reason. When a sim uses the bathroom to shower, bath, or use the toliet they LOCK the door! The other privacy mods would work fine if the sims where all ready in the room, or the bathroom used an arch or otherwise had no door, but they could not enter the room until the other sim was done, or they were mutually in love.

So I fixed the normal "Shoo because I want to take a bath or pee" stuff, and I made it so the door would not lock other sims out. I have tested this quite a bit and found no problems, but... I need others to test it too, expecially those with University (I really do have to get Uni I guess).

If you have any of the other no privacy mods there may be conflicts, otherwise this "should" not cause any conflicts. But there are SO many mods out there I cannot be sure.

Have fun,

Lizz Love

Hi Lizz,
Thanks for doing this because I had to delete my other no-privacy hack. It didn't seem to work very good.

Sounds good. I'll try it too. I have University and several of your other mods. Your "no-jealousy-at-all" mod with swinger hot tub and swinger bed combine to allow a "pleasure seeker" before it's out from EAGames. I like your work.

I have tested this hack with uni ep and had no probs. It always works and has not conflicted with any hacks i have come across yet.

I do believe Lizz suggests not to use noprivacybathroom and noprivacytoilet along with this hack ( I think i remember reading this somewhere a while ago I could be wrong) but i have had no problem having all 3 hacks is probally over kill.

thanks for the great hack along with all the other ones.

This is great, I have it in my game and no more three or four loos, I just stick two loos in one bathroom and think continental. Just great.
I use the maxis loos and showers and bathtubs, with no problems.

I put the hack in the Downloads folder, I hope that's okay. Or do I have to put it in 'Config'?

With Nightlife out will you be making your program here and also the swinger bed and hot tub compatible with Nightlife?

Thanks...

It will take me a while, but I will make all my mods compatible with Nightlife. For some that may mean a seperate version. I have the Auto waterbed almost done. It is just a rather long search thru the new code to see what changed and how to fix it.

I have tested and code checked this for Uni and Nightlife compatibility and found no problems or changes required. This mod is certified safe for use with Uni and Nightlife (patched and un-patched).

Lizzlove, this is the 1st ever mod I used of yours, and I hope that it works… I have downloaded a no privacy mod when I just had University, and I just found it so convenient. Then when NL came out, I have read somewhere that the no privacy mod wouldn’t work, so I had to get rid of it.

Now that you have a mod that does the same thing, and updated for NL, I just had to get my hands on DLin it.

Even though Maxis’ CCM doesn’t like your “no privacy mod” for some reason. I am gonna leave it enabled just because I like the convenience that your updated mod offers. I’m off to test, and ty.

I think CCM does not like it because I am changing a bunch of Semi-global files. Maxis hates when we do that.
