Compatible with the July 23, 2020 Nifty Knitting Patch.

This mod enhances your roommate gameplay to be better. Three things are changed in this mod:
  • Allows up to 20 or 50 lot occupants, instead of the game's default of 10.

    This mod raises the total number of sims living on a lot to 20 or 50, in any combination of active sims/pets/roommates. For example if you have 12 beds and 1 active sim, 11 roommates will be generated, or 3 active sims and 20 beds, 17 roommates will be generated. Works on both university housing and residential lots (includes apartments). Update: I have also included a 50 sim version (aka the total occupant limit of a lot is now 50 sims) - use at your own risk. During my testing, a 50-sim dorm slowed my game down, so its not recommended, but go crazy.

  • No more roommates randomly decorating their rooms without your permission.

    By default, roommates will fill their room with random objects like the dolls, lamps and plants from Discover University or base game crystals etc. A lot of the time these objects will even replace the ones you had or even spawn alongside an already used slot (see the plants spawning inside the microwave in the picture!). This is insanely annoying so I removed this behavior. Now your custom built dorms will stay exactly as they are, unless YOU change the rooms yourself.

  • No more roommates coming to community lots with you, uninvited.

    By default, roommates with the "Clingy Socialite" trait have a 33% chance of tagging along with your sim to a community lot. This initially sounded fun but got annoying real fast - I want the sims I invite myself to be at the venue! So with this mod, roommates will not do this anymore.

All three aspects come from the same tuning file, therefore I' providing five versions: PLEASE ONLY USE ONE, OTHERWISE THEY WILL CONFLICT!
  • RoommatesHigherCapacity+More - More roommates, no random decorating, no tagging along uninvited.

  • RoommatesHigherCapacityONLY - More roommates. Random decorating and tagging along behaviors remain unchanged.

  • RoommatesHigherCapacity+NoDecorating - More roommates & no random decorating. Tagging along behaviors unchanged.

  • RoommatesHigherCapacity+NoTaggingAlong - More roommates & no random tagging along. Decorating behaviors unchanged.

  • RoommatesHigherCapacity50Version - More roommates (max 50 sims per lot). All the versions above are included within the zip file. Unzip it and only use ONE of its files inside, depending on the version you want.

Installation
Please unzip the package file into Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods folder.

Updates
I will try to keep this updated in the future if needed.
