Hello everyone!
After a somewhat long hiatus, I checked back on my first mod post on MTS, where I made the Base Game loading screen for Expansion Packs, and found a comment saying what if I could get the loading screen scrolling text from the Base Game for the Expansions? (Sorry mate, it took me 3 months to notice your comment.)
Well, I did that, and then I did one better. I've more or less stopped celebrating owning the game, as I now celebrate owning the Ultimate Collection instead. So, in the spirit of Maxis, I made some custom scrolling text for use with the Ultimate Collection.
(UPDATE: Ultimate Collection is overrated. Spend a stupid amount of money on all the disc copies, like I just did. UC Scrolling Text works just as well on disc copies. (You don't even need the UC or all the disc copies if you'd like!))
Download only one file, and install it as normal (Downloads or Bins folder.)

Enjoy!

Custom Ultimate Collection Text
Stowing Augmentations
(Can be roughly changed with synonyms to "Packing Expansions, which is the main point of the UC)

Aggrandizing the Field of View
(Increasing the Resolution, with the 2014 re-release of the game we would be running it on better hardware)

Reticulating Splines One More Last Time
(Taken from M&G Stuff "Reticulating Splines One Last Time")

Denying Access Online
(thesims2.com doesn't exist anymore)

Communicating the Location of Bella Goth
(We found her eventually)

Prosperity Formulae = 2004 + Reticulating Splines
(Who doesn't love The Sims 2, and reticulating splines?)

Elucidating Simlish Lexicon
(Translating Simlish, we can sorta understand some things now? I just felt like adding this one)

Translating Content Across Time And Space
(Moving Stuff Across Time and Space, don't forget about the Stuff Packs!)

Rewriting Merriment Code
(Rewriting Game Code, we have a great modding community for TS2, although not really editing the game's code)

No More Spines to Reticulate
(UC is the peak of TS2, we have no more EPs or SPs to reticulate now)

As I don't speak anything other than English, the Custom Ultimate Collection text is in English only. If you use it on another language game, English will show up. I don't think your game will blow up if you use the Base Game text on EPs or SPs, but it was designed with the English US Ultimate Collection in mind. The Base Game text should be in other languages as I copied what EA had.

Mod Conflicts
Any mod that edits UIText.package will conflict with this one. Run the HCDU because it's really hard to figure these things out. DanTheMann15's AL and M&G Stuff Text Fixes will not conflict, that's for sure.
