This will stop/interrupt whatever your sim's doing and go to work/school but you can still manually cancel out that action if you dont want your sim to go to work/school.

v1.1 - Added run to carpool (this is just like the same as my Run-to-School bus hack)
and plus a slight boost of +50 in energy/hunger going to work/school.

UPDATED: 09/28/05
v.2.0 - Updated to EP2



EDITED:

- v2.0 is OFB Compatible

UPLOADED: 10/20/2006
v.3.0 - Updated to EP4

Great ideal. Still I find that I always have to make my sims take off their thinkingcaps before they rush off somewhere,so i won't be downloading.
But thanks, I've been thinking about a mod like this.

There's already a hack that refills the fridge at midnight, every night. Its at Simlogical under Global Patches.

There's also a low warning dialoge from 2Jeffs that says when fridge is 50 or lower but this is not exactly what the person requesting asked for.

Tried & tested: so far so good.
Five stars Monique! Very handy for crowded lots.

ohhhh GREAT .tis awesome ...!!! ..
i have a father sim whose wife was Pregnant and she died giving birth to 7 babies, ok ok i made this family 1 father and 7 toddlers) but that is the story that i created for him. The toddlers are all kids now and they study and i hate having to click on all 7 to make them go to school. This mod is great for this family cause they will not stop study and go to school on their own.

This is an awesome idea! It was always so irritating when I forgot about a Sim that had to go to work or school and they lost a grade or got fired. This will help a lot!

I love this hack. It would be perfect if it would just make them take off the darn thinking cap before they get in the carpool! I've had two sims that went to work wearing that thing because they were already getting in the car before I could stop them and it was too late. Even though I had queued up the action to remove the thinking cap, it got pushed to the end of their queue after getting in the carpool.

Oh! You updated and I never found it. I'll have to try it out Thanks again for making this hack, version one worked out really well for UNI, now I'll have to try it for NL.

Thanks so much for this one, too! I've had my sims miss the school bus and the carpool both, so this is great!

I ran the conflict hack thing and this popped up with a conflict on either inteen or insim. Does anybody know if this will really hurt to keep together. I don't want to give up either one.

I've been looking for something to solve the free will on/off problem.

With free will on, actions to go to work in owned cars and helicoptors automatically push into the queue, with free will off (how I prefer to play), they only auto push for regular car pools. There is also the same issue with exams in uni.

Does this hack do what I want it to do? ie, push those actions even with free will off?

You also only mention school and work, will this have any effect on the final exam in uni thing?
