This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
CASH REGISTER TRAINER
*OFB REQUIRED*

"CUSTOM" VERSION - If you want a "Global Mod" version, download it here

(Just choose one: installing both is useless)


CUSTOM Vs. GLOBAL VERSION
The Custom version is a normal object, like any other custom object; it won't affect anything in your game; the drawback is that the new "Practice" option will be available only for the two custom cash registers provided.
The Global Mod, on the other hand, affects the whole game, and modifies all the cash registers in all the neighborhoods, including the ones created by other users.

WHY THIS MOD?
I find very annoying that my sims, when they start a new business, take ages to sell each single item, due to their low skills in using the cash register.
In the real life, if I were such a noob, I'd practice using the cash register when alone, instead of making my customers angry for the excessive waiting.
So, here's the idea: your sims can practice with the cash register, so to gain skills without losing customers


IN-GAME USAGE
Buy one of the special cash registers that you can find in the Buy Mode catalog (section Electronics / Misc) and place them on your lot.
When you click on the cash register, you will get a "Practice" option: use it, and your sim will mimic the process of ringing up the customers (while there is no actual customer, of course), gaining skills and badges at the same speed they would get them with a normal cash register.
Every family member can practice the cash register, including children! As you know, the badges are not shown in the children's stats, but they will gain them nevertheless, and when they grow to teens, the badges will be visible.
IMPORTANT - The "Practice" option will appear only if:
  1. there is a business running in the lot (community or residential);
  2. the training sim is the business owner or a member of his family;
  3. the shop is closed: you can't practice in front of the customers!
BTW, the "Practice" option is translated in every language
NOTE: The standard Maxis registers will NOT have the "Practice" option: in order to do that, you need a Global Mod, that can be found HERE.


INSTALLATION / UNINSTALLATION
To install, unpack the attached RARs to your Downloads folder (you can use the Q-Xpress); each rar contains two files: one is the actual cash register, and the other is a special stool used by children in order to reach the cash register. You need the included stool in order for the register to work correctly.
I've included the stool in both RARs, for your convenience; but if you install both registers, you will get only one stool, of course
To uninstall, remove the files from the Downloads folder (don't forget to remove the stool, too).


GAME COMPATIBILITY
*OFB IS REQUIRED* - Any other EP in addition to OFB will work fine, too.


RECOLOURS
Both the attached cash registers borrow the textures from the corresponding Maxis register. Create a recolour for the Maxis ones, and the recolour will apply to these ones, too.
