I thought of a way to force-invite all Sims of a particular career, however I'm not sure if it's the best way possible.

Basically, set up Visitor Controller to allow only Sims of a certain career to visit. Then, using the debug cheat, SHIFT+click on the mailbox and select Invite All Neighbors.

However, I think this is a very CPU-intensive way of accomplishing this. Every Sim from the neighborhood will get invited, and then teleported off the lot once Visitor Controller does its checks. Because of the teleporting part, you'll see a lot of purple smoke effects (the meditation teleport effect).

I'd like a mod where you can get scholarships with only 5 or 6 skill points instead of 8. Tired of all my teen sims either having way too many skills or not being able to get any scholarships.

That would be great, I use the 8 marker to determine if they get into 'Ivy League' but for now I give money to the kids via cheat if they make 7 points on a skill.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

@Coriel_Muroz <removed>. Two minute mod to throw together so felt like I kinda had to All skill-related scholarships lowered to 5. Use at your own risk, not providing support or compatibility testing for it. Should in theory work for Uni and up, don't remember BCONs having EP-links but been ages since I dealt with compatibility so could be I've forgotten something. Definitely will work with M~G. Will not conflict with any mods, unless they are doing the exact same thing as this in which case you don't need this one

If someone wants a different number than 5 it's extremely easy to edit in SimPE, I've attached a picture at the end of post with what it looks like. You just open the package, click on "Tuning - Scholarship Requisites" in the top part of window, then click on the row you want to edit, change the number in the Dec box on the left side, press commit file in the upper right corner of the lower half of SimPE window, then save in the upper left corner or under file menu. If you are super confused and can't find the places I'm referring to, there's more detailed instructions in this upload of mine, so you can look there. Different name on the BCON and the lines in it obviously, but the principle is the same.

EDIT: Realized I should have mentioned how skills numbers work, sorry about that. If you want to edit this for your own use, please know that you have to write the number in multiples of 100. So if you want 5 bars on the skill bar, write 500. If you want 7, then write 700. If you'd like it to be 5 bars and half way towards the next skill point, then 550

Are you maybe interested to make FUNCTIONAL BAG OF SAND, fir cleaning pet litterbox? I know that you made PET FOOD BOX as actual functional object.

Way out of my league nowadays I'm afraid. Back then I could maybe have figured something out if a bag of sand object already exists with an open policy, but two years of disease turning my brain into mush has effectively wiped out most of what Michelle and gdayars and others taught me about object creating. Basic things I can still manage, but more complicated stuff is a bust. Especially areas of modding that I was never very good at, even back then.

But lots of talented modders around now, maybe one of them will see it and get inspired I remember I got a PM from someone about similar vein of thing, and they found someone outside of MTS that took it on, so if you really want it to exist, try finding object modders that take requests. Ask community if they know any

You might try Fractured Moonlight, over at PBK, who's well known for making functional things that not many people do-they've already done a huge project of making clay pots, etc, so they might be able to do this. ( I only put 'they' as the sex of Frac because I'm not sure if they're a he or a she..)

Idk but it's like every single toddler is grumpy and noisy as hell while on the craddle. I'd like a mod that allow a toddler to yell only if one of these conditions are met: (1) has red aspiration, (2) hunger/fun is below 50%, (3) has neat personality and is stinking, (4) has a very grouchy personality overall.
On the opposite side, a toddler who has a very nice personality should never yell unless is starving.

This is awesome, gummilutt!
I play with a shorter lifespan and my teenagers never ever have enough time to skill up (there is too much dating to do ) so this is really appreciated.

Why don't you upload it to MTS?
It might seem a little thing for you, but I'm sure plenty of us would put it to good use.

Nah, not interested in uploading stuff officially. With how little energy I have nowadays I don't want to put it towards compatibility testing and writing out detailed instructions. And I may disappear again for 2 years at any time, so it wouldn't be supported and I don't think that's fair to the downloaders. But if anyone else wants to do that stuff and upload it themselves, go for it, I don't mind I just wanted to help Coriel out since it's such an easy mod to make if you just know how to find the code.

I have some ideas for mods and hacks:

- A mod where you can summon an evil spirit by reading a magic book. The demon/spirit will kill sims in your neighborhood unless you send it back into the book. Basically an NPC that can randomly kill sims.

- The Deadly Kiss: a mod where you can kill a sim with a kiss. Think of the villain Poison Ivy from the 1997 Batman and Robin movie. This would be great for evil witches and succubi.

- The Deadly Hand Buzzer Handshake: This would be awesome for a Joker sim. Give your neighbor the shock of his life. You give him a handshake, he gets electricuted, then drops dead.

- A Ghostbusting mod for sims 2 where you can zap ghosts and capture them. A pke meter that can detect the ghosts.

I don't agree at all. If you're wide awake, and want to play, but you're stuck in your crib, just scream and scream and scream until someone comes and lets you out. You're a toddler and you have a right to play! Don't worry about the grown-ups; it's their job to look after you. Toddlers of the world unite!

Am I the only one who hears the toddlers screaming, "Daaaaddyyyyy! Goddammit, daddy, wherrre arrrre youuuuuuuuuuuu!"?

I agree that it would be nice to see some variety in toddler screaming. Nice toddlers who are in a good mood shouldn't start screaming and stomping the second they wake up, especially when a carer is already right there in the room walking towards them. I would much prefer it if the nicer ones could start with something more akin to asking for attention, leaving the melodrama for those who are miserable or grouchy.

I think the difficulty is that the way it's coded, asking for attention needs an attentive audience with the reciprocal action "Be asked", whereas screaming doesn't need a specific individual available to "Be screamed at". Maybe "Call over" could work, since it doesn't require the callee to be right beside the caller?

According to my mother, that's just what I was like pre-school. I discovered that I could get what I wanted by screaming until I got it. A bit like Violet-Elizabeth Bott in the Just William books. As an older child, when I read about Violet-Elizabeth Bott I was quite embarrassed.

[EDIT] The funny thing is, as an older child I think I had quite a few Nice points (and I hope I've still got some of them), but pre-school I was just horrible.

I really wish zits were just random, rather than tied to hygiene. I'm playing a household where the oldest kid just became a teen, and he's so adorably awkward and into himself that I can see the spots without them even being there. It'd be really fun to be surprised by zits on some teens regardless of how often they shower (or don't shower).

Exactly this. In short, it would be great if toddlers showed some personality too.

My apologies. I thought simfileshare links were okay, see people post them all the time. But perhaps the distinction is that they are posting other peoples uploads, rather than something from their own profile.

Either way, don't PM me. It's unlikely I'd respond. If you wanted mod and you can't get it now, I'm sorry.

A soft/hard edge slider for the terrain paints. Someone found out their drawing tablet works with Sims 4 terrain paint. Naturally, I grabbed my drawing tablet to see if it worked with Sims 2, and it does, but not very well, because the terrain tools are so limited.

Also, hopefully it doesn't break the rules to say this, and sorry if it does, but I have a tumblr, and I'm willing to post links.

Post away my dear peoples Upload anywhere, the file itself or the link. Send in PMs, don't send in PMs. Do whatever you want to do Welcome to claim it as your own, I really don't mind what happens to it. I just wanted to help Coriel out since I could, beyond that is totally open policy.

I happened to discover it conflicts with Cyjon's djsbadgescholarships, so I updated the file on simfileshare with a compatible version and a txt explaining load order. Cause once again I happened to see and it was 2 min fix so might as well, I'm sure more people than me like to have the additional scholarships for badges.
