Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Another one for theme Maternity & Beyond.

This is a set of global mods that make having kids possible and comfortable for young adults and sims living on campus.

17 oct. 2017: improved "move out of college" and added new mod "uni dorm rooms"

Plan of attack:
  1. Pick and choose the files you want by reading their descriptions down below. (Options!)
  2. Run Hack Conflict Detection Utility to make sure these hacks don't clash with anything you have in your Downloads folder.
  3. Get some clothing defaults (I'll explain it). And you're set!

Here goes...

Uni-aging
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Choose only one version
  • No overrides. It's unlikely that it'll conflict with any other mod.
Versions: Uni-aging-each-[N]-day
  • Playable sims age and grow up while living on campus (all except young adults).
    • Depending on your chosen version, they age each N day.
    • This allows you to adjust aging to your college time scale and play style.
    • Example: if you want sims to age everyday at 18 pm, choose Uni-aging-each-1-day.
    • If you'd like an 'N' I haven't provided, ask me or change it yourself in BCON #1009 (Age each N day).
  • This is custom controller that operates only in Uni 'hoods on livable lots. It does its thing quietly, no actions needed from you.
  • It is also needed for pregnancies to advance in uni 'hoods.
  • If so happens that you have other custom aging controller that works on campus lots, you can stick to that one, if you like it better.

YA-pregnancy
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Choose only one of the two versions
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflicts:
    zSims2Living Teen Pregnancy Mod\S2LTeenFemalePregnancyEnabler.package (explaining in post #24)
    Pescado's wfsanity (resolvable, see post #20)
Version YA-pregnancy-AL
  • Young adults may roll wants to have children.
  • Try for baby interactions are available to young adults (whether on campus or not). Actions are NOT autonomous.
  • In uni, for pregnancy to advance, you'll need Uni-aging-each-N-day. OR other custom aging controller that supports pregnancies on campus lots.
Version YA-pregnancy-anyplayable-AL
  • Young adults may roll wants to have children.
  • Try for baby interactions are available to young adults (whether on campus or not). Actions are NOT autonomous.
  • Also, it is not necessary for a mother to be a member of currently controlled household.
    • Example: it's possible to impregnate Nina while she's a guest at Don's.
    • Mother still must be a playable, have room in her household for another sim, and other usual rules apply.
  • In uni, for pregnancy to advance, you'll need Uni-aging-each-N-day. OR other custom aging controller that supports pregnancies on campus lots.

YA-male-alien-pregnancy
  • Young adult males may get pregnant after alien abduction.
  • Requires Free Time or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict: BO's alien experiments

YA-move-out-of-college
  • Family. Graduates or drop-outs may take other sims with them when they finally move out of Uni 'hood.
    • Only non-YA sims may be taken.
    • It's not allowed to leave kids or pets behind without a guardian.
    • You won't get spanked for trying to move out all playables (this is normal for moving out of college).
  • Timing. Sims may choose not to move out right away, but stay and tag along with other graduate or drop-out.
    • In this version, non-YAs can't move from uni to main hood through computer or paper, so make sure to grab them with other graduates or have sims from other household invite them to move in.
  • Funds. You decide exactly how much money goes to whom. Choices:
    • Pick any amount of money from budget - and that's what they end up with in hood bin, even if it's 50 simoleons.
    • Or cancel and make them receive 20,000 out of thin air (the usual).
    • If all playables move out in one bunch and they have more than 20k in funds, they will take their money with them automatically.
  • Job. Graduating sims on top of their part-time career get upgraded to full-time job in linked career.
    • It's similar to teens' promotions on aging to adult, except teens don't have to be on top of their career to be upgraded, but the graduates do. I've made it to be like they've completed internship or something.
    • Career level they end up on depends on meeting skills and friends reqs, with the 6th level as maximum.
    • Drop-outs don't get to be upgraded.
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict: my old YA-moveout-of-college and upcoming moving mod for all (in testing now)

Uni-adoption
  • Young adults may roll wants to adopt children.
  • Adoption service is available in Uni 'hoods. Young adults and older sims can apply.
  • Requires Bon Voyage or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources

Uni-school-bus
  • School bus picks up kids living on campus and delivers them to school (public or private) and back home.
  • Also, the game processes school properly in uni (for example, checks if a kid missed school) and shows you school-related notifications.
  • Requires University or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict: Pescado’s private school bill Fix

Uni-dorm-rooms
  • Requires University (since I'm on UC and have no way to test only Uni environment, be careful and test)
  • Choose only one version
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • In dorms, the game reserves rooms only for specific ages of sims.
    • Example: if your sims have a baby in a dorm, the game won't think that it needs a room, and it won't push a dormie to move out.
    • Playable sims kid to elder still can claim doors - the interaction is there, if a door is free. If a wrong sim claimed a door, he or she won't be pushed out of the room, but you might be notified. If the sim has unclaimed the room and the game doesn't think he or she needs one, it will fill it with a townie soon.
    • The mod only applies to dorms as a lot type located in uni hood (unless you have some kind of hack that makes dorm controller work in other subhoods or lots).
Version Uni-dorm-rooms-only-for-YA
  • Dorm room will not be reserved for anyone except young adults. Only students will be counted as sims, who need their own dorm room.
Version Uni-dorm-rooms-only-for-YA-A-E
  • Dorm room will not be reserved for underage sims and pets. But the grown-ups will be expected to have their own dorm rooms.


Stuff to download elsewhere:
  • Clothing with pregnant morphs. It's not necessary, but nice to have to be able to see a belly.
    • Young mothers have sweater outfit as default maternity wear. They wear it as casual.
    • Some pj's and undies already have preg morphs. The ones that I know of include these and that basic female underwear that I didn't find image in the database of. If you don't download replacements for other sleepwear, you could just make sure to buy these for a future mother before she starts showing.
  • I suggest you:

Questions & answers:
  • Do these mods support dorms as well a private housing? What about Greek Houses?
    I tested different situations and made sure you should have no problems playing in dorms, private or greek houses. Giving multiple births, moving in and out with kids, splitting family between houses and dorms, moving back home as a drop-out, claiming dorm rooms by kids and then moving out, etc -- no problems. Of course, if you notice something odd, let me know.
  • If I was playing with just a male sim, and he tries for a baby with someone who lives in the dorm (but still an NPC), will the child be born even though it's not controllable?
    A mother must be a playable, not an NPC or townie, otherwise there's no trying for a baby with her.
  • Can YA's off the campus get pregnant?
    Yes. Bear in mind that being young adult and living in university are two separate things, technically.
  • Does ACR work in conjunction with this mod?
    ACR and my mod won't clash, so you can use them together. Although, they will not always combine their functions in a way you might expect. As far as I know, ACR provides custom interactions, completely separate from vanilla ones. So, with my mod, 'try for baby' interaction will not be autonomous for YAs, it's just a vanilla 'try for baby' made available for YA sims. They won't try for baby unless you to click the action on the menu. When you click 'try for baby', your sims may get pregnant with a certain % chance as it happens in vanilla game. As for birth control function, I don't know how it works and I don't use ACR, so it's hard to tell without testing whether it prevents pregnancy in this case.

Features already available in game, by the way:
  • To hire a nanny in Uni.
  • To lose children to social worker.
    • You'll get no more than a warning for going to class while a kid stays alone. But try not to accumulate too many warnings and beware of the exams!
  • To walk to school for kids in Uni.
  • To live with non-YAs on campus and move between houses with them, once those sims are moved in or born.
  • Some YAs' outfits already have pregnant morphs.
