This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*** UPDATE 9/16/08 ***
Uploaded version compatible with Apartment Life - thanks to Qwigqwag for the resources I needed. Removed unsupported languages, making the package smaller.
*** UPDATE 7/26/08 ***
Added Danish translations provided SofieAmalie
*** UPDATE 4/10/08 ***
Added Italian translations provided by raffo89 and fixed a typo in the Spanish version.
*** UPDATE 3/19/08 ***
Yeesh, three updates in 4 days! This time I'm adding Russian translations.
*** UPDATE 3/18/08 ***
Uploaded a new version that adds Dutch translations provided by moonslave. No need to re-download unless you want the Dutch.
*** UPDATE 03/15/08 ***
I just verified that this mod works as-is with Free Time. No need to re-download if you have the BV version.
*** UPDATE 01/26/08 ***
Thanks to Sulphur this has now been updated for use with Bon Voyage. There is now only one version and it works will everything from base game only through Bon Voyage.
*** UPDATE 7/22/07 ***
Thanks to carnifinda I've added French translations to all three versions. I also compressed the packages so they are 85% smaller than before.
*** UPDATE 4/7/07 ***
All versions have been updated with Spanish translations (thank you, sebigut119). I realized that I had put the German translations only in the NL version, so I updated the other two versions to include them. No need to re-download unless you want the additional languages.
*** UPDATE 4/4/07 ***
With the help of silverdreams, this mod has now been updated for Pets and Seasons! The -NL version works for any combination of expansions from Nightlife through Seasons.
With xZise's help it also includes German translations. I'm still looking for anyone who can update the strings I need in other languages.
*** UPDATE AGAIN ***
This time for sure!
There are now three versions: one for the base game, one for University, and one for Nightlife or OFB. I've tested both the base and NL/OFB versions and they definitely work.
There is no plan to update this for Pets or Seasons as I don't own those expansions.
*** UPDATE ***
I've removed the original version and added two new versions.
"NicerPhoneMessages-base" works with the base game and University. "NicerPhoneMessages-NL" works with Nightlife or OFB. The "NL" version is exactly the same as the "OFB" version I had posted before, so you don't need to re-download if you have OFB or NL.
Sorry, still no version for Pets or Seasons
This mod replaces the pointlessly nasty telephone messages with more courteous ones. It also adds the feature that when the sim you are calling isn't home because of work or school, it will tell you when they will return.
Apartment Life added a third reason people aren't home but since I don't have that EP I don't know what that is. You will get a "You've reached my answering machine..." message with no time in that case.
INSTALLATION: Unzip it and put the package file in your Downloads directory or any subdirectory under Downloads
COMPATIBILITY: Works with all versions from the base game through Apartment Life.
LANGUAGES SUPPORTED: English, English (UK), German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Russian
KNOWN BUGS & CONFLICTS: None. Definitely works with Pescado's phonehack.
