This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Please be aware that I have not worked on this for a long time and it is incredibly out of date so it probably doesn't function properly

I have completely started again, please see my journal for reason and update progress


Uploaded WIP file.
This file includes interractions I feel some might appreciate to have for the time being whilst I finish the main version - some things may not work properly!!!
I would also appreciate if anyone downloads this version, that you could please let me know of any issues. So I can fix them in the main file before I finish and upload it. If you do so, please try and be as specific as you can as it makes it easier for me to locate the interaction tuning that isn't working out of a list of 400+ !!!

Read my journal for this mod to stay up-to-date with update progress

Optional off-the-grid version
please choose only one file, they will overwrite each other

As requested by theflyinghipy on my Realm of Magic Familiar Orb Light, I have edited the familiar orbs from Realm of Magic to have computer functionality

At the moment your sims will just tap the desk, so it looks a bit strange. I will look at improving this if I am able (I only started modding July 2019! )

Plans:
• Change the animation (WIP)
Make functional off-the-grid
Update for Discover University

Invalid Tuning for RoM - Familiar Orb PC (Off The Grid) - TESTING 22.1.20.package si_RabbitHole_Career_Law_AttendDeposition
Anyway, one of my absolute favorite mods, I hope you get a chance to update but I understand life gets busy. I have loved using it while it was working. Thank you!

For those looking: Serinion has a crystal ball computer but it is for patrons only, It doesn't look as nice as the orb since you can see the screen still, but it has a book in place of the keyboard. Not sure if functional off-grid though....

The only thing I could ask for, and this is kind of the problem with a lot of the computer mods as of late, is I'd like it if it also functioned as a sketch pad. Since it's magic, I don't see why that would cost to draw either.

Thank you for letting us know!!!! I love the mods you have made. The sprinkler and thermostat replacements are AMAZING, for instance!

Basically, it works for cottage living patch, except for the interactions of 'Buy Magic Items from Computer' are gone. I still like to use it as a portable computer.

Yes I'm not surprised it's incredibly out of date.
I haven't worked on it for a long time. I've only recently found time to come back and update some small things.
I've got exams coming up and this is a lot of work fixing this. I said a long while ago it's not abandoned, I intended to finish it. If that ever happens with what I originally wanted.

I could maybe just do a quick update to allow it to actually function properly. Just taking a PC and swapping out the mesh.
