This simple hack allow all family members do homework of their children.
As you see on pic - it looks very funny :D

+ you may use it for storytelling

Addition: fun increases while doing homework instead of decreasing.


I ve just tested it with EP - it works properly in my game.

I think it may conflict with another school hacks so use them mixed carefully and at your own risk

Please test it if you like and post results.

Isn't this supposed to go in the "hacked objects" forum? I don't see how this modifies the normal gameplay.

It seams to modifie all the homework is the right place and on the note of other hacks Jenflower made the "homework sometimes faster fun" mod but that is diffrent and only sometimes fun and another person made a parents do homework for kids but this is quite diffrent.

um... yeah...

Well, if this does modify the global homework, I can promise you that it will interfere with everyone else's mods for homework (especially mine).

With this in mind, you can expect the homework to exhibit the same buggy behavior as the old Maxis code for placing homework.

too bad there isn't a hack to make ppl fight over who does the homework. that would be cool, as well as funny :D

I hope that you are happy with what you've done.

Are you sure this couldn't already be done in the game? Even before I ever downloaded things for my game I had Jenny, Pollination's wife, do her annoying daughters homework.

Actually, I say "annoying daughter" because the kid was off sleeping while her mom did all of it. But maybe it's an oddity.

Thanks! I had something similar to this before i rebooted my computer system. I loved it because parents could do the homework for the kids whilst they were at school. It was a nightmare when i forgot to tell the kids to do the homework and their grades dropped!

Haha... my mother always forces me to make my 9 year old brother's homework for him (even though in my school we don't have homework), so once more Simming reflects real life!
