* Requires : University
* Compatibility: The Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open For Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Store Edition, FreeTime, Apartment Life, Mansion & Garden Stuff, all Stuff Packs
* Modifications: Semi-Global (affects all phones)
* Hack Version#: 1.0

Quick Info
~~~~~~~~~~
* You must also download the following addon(s) for this hack to work correctly:

df_game_edition_addon.package

df_globals_pack.package

Instead of being free, cell phone usage will now cost Simoleons. The amount charged can be a flat-rate fee for each call and/or be based on the total time spent on the call. By default, the hack is configured to charge 1 Simoleon at the minimum per call with the total usage time added in as well. The usage charge is set by default to 1 Simoleon for each 5 minutes spent on the call.

All cell phone calls will be affected by the hack, including both outgoing calls and incoming ones. This hack will affect custom content cell phones as well, with the exception of the "Call Taxi" option while on a community lot. You would need to ask the author of the custom phone (or fix it yourself) to import the "Interaction - Call Taxi For Go Home" function from my hack to get that "Call Taxi" option to be billable.

Due to massive changes in the phone system starting with the Pets Expansion pack, it seemed best to make 2 different editions of the hack.

Use PET-MG.RAR if you have at least one of these EPs/SPs:

Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Teen Style Stuff, Store Edition, FreeTime, Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff, IKEA Home Stuff, Apartment Life, and/or Mansion & Garden Stuff

Use UNI-OFB.RAR if you do not have any of the packs listed above.

* Check out the readme.txt file for more information.
