This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Another one for theme Maternity & Beyond.

This is a set of global mods that make having kids possible and comfortable for young adults and sims living on campus.

17 oct. 2017: improved "move out of college" and added new mod "uni dorm rooms"

Plan of attack:
  1. Pick and choose the files you want by reading their descriptions down below. (Options!)
  2. Run Hack Conflict Detection Utility to make sure these hacks don't clash with anything you have in your Downloads folder.
  3. Get some clothing defaults (I'll explain it). And you're set!

Here goes...

Uni-aging
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Choose only one version
  • No overrides.
  • Conflicts: probably InTeenimater. Maybe not directly, but InTeen already covers aging at university, so it has a potential to cause some weirdness, like sims aging twice a day or something.
Versions: Uni-aging-each-[N]-day
  • Playable sims age and grow up while living on campus (all except young adults).
    • Depending on your chosen version, they age each N day.
    • This allows you to adjust aging to your college time scale and play style.
    • Example: if you want sims to age everyday at 18 pm, choose Uni-aging-each-1-day.
    • If you'd like an 'N' I haven't provided, ask me or change it yourself in BCON #1009 (Age each N day).
  • This is custom controller that operates only in Uni 'hoods on livable lots. It does its thing quietly, no actions needed from you.
  • It is also needed for pregnancies to advance in uni 'hoods.
  • If so happens that you have other custom aging controller that works on campus lots, you can stick to that one, if you like it better. You don't want to have more than one.

YA-pregnancy
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Choose only one of the two versions
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflicts:
    - Sims2Living Teen Pregnancy Mod\S2LTeenFemalePregnancyEnabler.package (explaining in post #24)
    - Pescado's wfsanity (resolvable, see post #20)
    - Twojeffs_Preg_For_All_Genders (reported in post #39)
    - Havechildnotadopt (affects wants, also see post #39)
    - InTeenimater
Version YA-pregnancy-AL
  • Young adults may roll wants to have children.
  • Try for baby interactions are available to young adults (whether on campus or not). Actions are NOT autonomous.
  • In uni, for pregnancy to advance, you'll need Uni-aging-each-N-day. OR other custom aging controller that supports pregnancies on campus lots.
Version YA-pregnancy-anyplayable-AL
  • Young adults may roll wants to have children.
  • Try for baby interactions are available to young adults (whether on campus or not). Actions are NOT autonomous.
  • Also, it is not necessary for a mother to be a member of currently controlled household.
    • Example: it's possible to impregnate Nina while she's a guest at Don's.
    • Mother still must be a playable, have room in her household for another sim, and other usual rules apply.
  • In uni, for pregnancy to advance, you'll need Uni-aging-each-N-day. OR other custom aging controller that supports pregnancies on campus lots.

YA-male-alien-pregnancy
  • Young adult males may get pregnant after alien abduction.
  • Requires Free Time or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict: BO's alien experiments

YA-move-out-of-college
  • Family. Graduates or drop-outs may take other sims with them when they finally move out of Uni 'hood.
    • Only non-YA sims may be taken.
    • It's not allowed to leave kids or pets behind without a guardian.
    • You won't get spanked for trying to move out all playables (this is normal for moving out of college).
  • Timing. Sims may choose not to move out right away, but stay and tag along with other graduate or drop-out.
    • In this version, non-YAs can't move from uni to main hood through computer or paper, so make sure to grab them with other graduates or have sims from other household invite them to move in.
  • Funds. You decide exactly how much money goes to whom. Choices:
    • Pick any amount of money from budget - and that's what they end up with in hood bin, even if it's 50 simoleons.
    • Or cancel and make them receive 20,000 out of thin air (the usual).
    • If all playables move out in one bunch and they have more than 20k in funds, they will take their money with them automatically.
  • Job. Graduating sims on top of their part-time career get upgraded to full-time job in linked career.
    • It's similar to teens' promotions on aging to adult, except teens don't have to be on top of their career to be upgraded, but the graduates do. I've made it to be like they've completed internship or something.
    • Career level they end up on depends on meeting skills and friends reqs, with the 6th level as maximum.
    • Drop-outs don't get to be upgraded.
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict:
    - InTeenimater
    - my old YA-moveout-of-college and upcoming moving mod for all (in testing now)

Uni-adoption
  • Young adults may roll wants to adopt children.
  • Adoption service is available in Uni 'hoods. Young adults and older sims can apply.
  • Requires Bon Voyage or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict: Havechildnotadopt (reported in post #39)

Uni-school-bus
  • School bus picks up kids living on campus and delivers them to school (public or private) and back home.
  • Also, the game processes school properly in uni (for example, checks if a kid missed school) and shows you school-related notifications.
  • Requires University or later EP/SP
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflict:
    - Pescadoís private school bill Fix (weird, but reported as working fine in post #26)
    - InTeenimater

Uni-dorm-rooms
  • Requires University (since I'm on UC and have no way to test only Uni environment, be careful and test)
  • Choose only one version
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • In dorms, the game reserves rooms only for specific ages of sims.
    • Example: if your sims have a baby in a dorm, the game won't think that it needs a room, and it won't push a dormie to move out.
    • Playable sims kid to elder still can claim doors - the interaction is there, if a door is free. If a wrong sim claimed a door, he or she won't be pushed out of the room, but you might be notified. If the sim has unclaimed the room and the game doesn't think he or she needs one, it will fill it with a townie soon.
    • The mod only applies to dorms as a lot type located in uni hood (unless you have some kind of hack that makes dorm controller work in other subhoods or lots).
Version Uni-dorm-rooms-only-for-YA
  • Dorm room will not be reserved for anyone except young adults. Only students will be counted as sims, who need their own dorm room.
Version Uni-dorm-rooms-only-for-YA-A-E
  • Dorm room will not be reserved for underage sims and pets. But the grown-ups will be expected to have their own dorm rooms.


Stuff to download elsewhere:
  • Clothing with pregnant morphs. It's not necessary, but nice to have to be able to see a belly.
    • Young mothers have sweater outfit as default maternity wear. They wear it as casual.
    • Some pj's and undies already have preg morphs. The ones that I know of include these and that basic female underwear that I didn't find image in the database of. If you don't download replacements for other sleepwear, you could just make sure to buy these for a future mother before she starts showing.
  • I suggest you:

Questions & answers:
  • Do these mods support dorms as well a private housing? What about Greek Houses?
    I tested different situations and made sure you should have no problems playing in dorms, private or greek houses. Giving multiple births, moving in and out with kids, splitting family between houses and dorms, moving back home as a drop-out, claiming dorm rooms by kids and then moving out, etc -- no problems. Of course, if you notice something odd, let me know.
  • If I was playing with just a male sim, and he tries for a baby with someone who lives in the dorm (but still an NPC), will the child be born even though it's not controllable?
    A mother must be a playable, not an NPC or townie, otherwise there's no trying for a baby with her.
  • Can YA's off the campus get pregnant?
    Yes. Bear in mind that being young adult and living in university are two separate things, technically.
  • Does ACR work in conjunction with this mod?
    ACR and my mod won't clash, so you can use them together. Although, they will not always combine their functions in a way you might expect. As far as I know, ACR provides custom interactions, completely separate from vanilla ones. So, with my mod, 'try for baby' interaction will not be autonomous for YAs, it's just a vanilla 'try for baby' made available for YA sims. They won't try for baby unless you to click the action on the menu. When you click 'try for baby', your sims may get pregnant with a certain % chance as it happens in vanilla game. As for birth control function, I don't know how it works and I don't use ACR, so it's hard to tell without testing whether it prevents pregnancy in this case.

Features already available in game, by the way:
  • To hire a nanny in Uni.
  • To lose children to social worker.
    • You'll get no more than a warning for going to class while a kid stays alone. But try not to accumulate too many warnings and beware of the exams!
  • To walk to school for kids in Uni.
  • To live with non-YAs on campus and move between houses with them, once those sims are moved in or born.
  • Some YAs' outfits already have pregnant morphs.

Yes, it will conflict. As far as I can tell (looking at his mod right now), the mod allows to touch young adults on condition that player has InTeen installed. I can easily remove that condition and forward the file to you personally. I hope BO wouldn't mind as long as I'm not posting it publicly.

Sorry, I was just wondering. If I was playing with just a male sim, and he tries for a baby with someone who lives in the dorm (but still an NPC), will the child be born even though it's not controllable??

I haven't been this excited about a mod since maybesomethingdunnoís Surfís Up mod. A few years back I experimented with YA marriage and pregnancy in one of my neighborhoods; Of course I had to employ various methods as I donít use Inteen. The students had to live in private housing because dorms operate differently. It appears (if I understand correctly), these mods support dorms as well a private housing? What about Greek Houses?

Iíve been playing my neighborhood for 3 years and these mods would enhance my game play options. So I chose the following: 6 day aging, YA Uni School Bus, YA move out college, YA pregnancy-any playable all for AL. I play with a very heavily modded game (over 1000) so it goes without saying that I rely on the HDCU. I was totally shocked that there was only one conflict reported Ė and the source was even more surprising. The conflict reported was with your Uni-SchoolBus mod and Pescadoís private school bill Fix.

Not sure when Iíll have a situation where these mods will come into play; although I think I may have the perfect couple to try this out with. Iím going to add them to my game and see how they get along in my downloads folder and see how or if it affects the private school billing in an adverse way.

Thank you for your kind words, guys, and for your questions -- based on them I add known conflicts and clarifications to main post.

Worth noting about dorms, as soon as your sim's baby is born, because it counts as member of playable household, a random dormie will free a room making place for new playable sim, even though babies don't need rooms and can't claim doors.

I suspect, the one that loads last will overrule the other, so one of them won't work. But it shouldn't be too hard to merge them together in one file. I can do that, if you find they really don't work as separate mods.

@deerparker, you can have both mods.
The conflict is about wants. Both mods have a file that determines if and when sims may roll a want to have a child. Whichever mod loads last gets to make final decision, so to speak. If you want young adults to be able to roll want to have a baby, make my mod load last.
#10 Old 30th Sep 2017 at 8:15 AM
Hi. What exactly the conflict between YA-pregnancy and S2LTeenFemalePregnancyEnabler? Is it that can resolve by swapping out the load order or does the entire mod break? I can live with SimBlender the teen pregnancy if it come to that.

I would also be interested in the modified version of BO's Alien Experiments, if thats not much too problem.

Thanks in advance.

I'm secretly a Bulbasaur.

Hi, @ihatemandatoryregister
Both mods have "Pregnancy - Can We Get Pregnant?" procedure and it's pretty important -- it decides whether two sims can try for baby. So if my mod loads last, it'll overwrite all changes made by S2LTeenFemalePregnancyEnabler, one of them being inclusion of teens. It may or may not work out ok for that mod -- I don't know. (Not that I don't want to help, it's just it's probably a complicated mod, and I won't be able to predict all the consequences unless I test it, and I'm not even interested in teen pregnancy.)

Sent you PM with a link to "BO - Alien-Experiments-GLOBAL-edit-for-YA.package".

I've had my first Sim baby born at St. Catherine's College in a private residence. Baby Jasmine is now a child attending private school. Although a conflict showed in the HCDU with the private school bill fix and the uni-school-bus mod, both work as they should. All households are charged the school fee and the school bus arrives at the Uni household on schedule every day to take Jasmine to school. I'm glad this worked out because I didn't want to choose. I've used that mod to increase the private school fee in my game. I've played this type of scenario quite often in my game; I'm glad that I can now do it effortlessly with your mods working in the back ground. I also used the Sim Blender to move in an adult Sim - they also age daily at 6 p.m. (I'm using the 1 day aging) and the car pool arrives for them daily.

I'm wondering if this will work for pets also. I tried having a pet live in a private Uni residence a few years ago. Nothing really bad happened, but things got a bit quirky in the main hood when one of the pets died.
