Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Description:
This updated version (2007-04-24) contains a few more options:
- Buy Electronics Online (Cellphone, MP3-Player, Handheld Game)
- Buy Potions Online (all pots the Gypsy and the Garden Club offer, plus Perfume)
- Buy Magazines Online
All items are teleported into the active sim's inventory.
French text by Youri987.


The version "CtfG_TeenStarPC.package" will work with all game versions. Seperate versions are no longer necessary. I will leave the older versions here, though, to ensure compatibility, for whatever reasons might occur.


Features:
- Teens may move out, write novels, quit school and enter public / private school. All other functions of the original game, like eMail, games, chat and so on, remain as they were.
- With Uni (EP1) installed, teens may apply for scholarship, review scholarship and move to college if they meet the game conditions like grades high enough.
- With OfB (EP3) installed, teens may perform any OfB-related action, like buying community lots, hiring employees and so on.
- Children may move out (option added in September 2006 by request; please read included documentation for further comments on this one) and enter public/private school.
- No memory update for entering Private School; this is still linked to the Headmaster's agreement.
- Teens and kids receive the usual ยง20,000 when they move out, and they can determine if other members of the household shall move out with them (function uses the standard move-out screen). After moving out and having saved the lot, the teens/kids can be found in the neighborhood bin. From there, they can be added to an existing household, or they can buy a lot / house and thus create a new household.
- Though it is possible for children to establish a new household by using this PC, it is highly recommended to only add them into an already existing household! Remember that children cannot pay bills or go shopping, and when they live alone, the social worker is not far away. Try this option at your own risk, and don't sue me when the social worker picks up your single-living child. You have been warned. Teenagers, though, can live on their own without any problem as long as they pay the bills.
- Young adults, adults and elders can only repair and turn off this PC (latter option added in September 2006)
- No loss of family ties or relations to friends and lovers
- Pie menu both in english and german. Other languages will (hopefully) default to english.
- Based on Maxis' standard PC, so no extra mesh is needed.
- Five colors (blue as default, green, lilac, red and yellow as additional colors included)
- Available under "Electronics - TV/Video & Computer"
- GUID registered with SimPE to avoid conflicts with other SimPE-registered mods / hacks.
