Outdoor Lights All Night

DESCRIPTION: Outdoor lights will stay on until 7 am rather than 2 am.

LAST UPDATE: March 5, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

INCOMPATIBLE MODS: Doesn't work with Smarter Lights which is why I no longer use it.

No Random Calls

DESCRIPTION: Reduces the massive spam of incoming phone calls from random idiots who keep interrupting play.

I have broken this out into several packages. Download as desired depending on which calls you want to eliminate.

"Strangers" prevents people you barely know from calling just to chat. Works on both townies and downtownies.

"Contacts" stops calls from people you've never even met, who call just because you have a mutual friend.

No Finals Warning

DESCRIPTION: Suppresses the "finals in 5 hours" warning.

With my Semester Changes mod you know when the finals are - 9 am every other day. You don't need the warning.

LAST UPDATE: September 20, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: University

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from University through Apartment Life.

Sponge Bath Fix

DESCRIPTION: Sims will autonomously take sponge baths only if there are no bathtubs or showers on the property. Player can direct sponge baths at any time.

Unlike previous versions, this one does not extend sponge baths to children. That aspect became broken with FreeTime and I couldn't figure out why so I abandoned it.

LAST UPDATE: August 28, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

Desk Fix

DESCRIPTION: Children can place items like homework on desks more successfully.

Does not fix the Country Desk from Seasons since it uses its own weird slots to keep people from reaching through the solid hutch on the back. Should work on all others desks including custom desks.

People still occasionally have trouble if the only access to the desk is on the diagonal but the behavior is inconsistent.

LAST UPDATE: August 30, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

No Visiting Professors

DESCRIPTION: Prevents those creepy Art professors from stalking your dorms.

Less Relaxing

DESCRIPTION: An evolution of my old NoAutoRelax mod. Unlike that mod, which completely prevented sims from relaxing in bed, this one allows it as long as the sim's energy is > 40%. The purpose is to keep sims using sleepclock from relaxing when they are sleepy, thus missing the call to go to bed.

The player can still order sims to relax in bed. This just affects autonomous behavior.

Updated to fix an EP check bug.

LAST UPDATE: August 31, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

Job Typo Fixes

DESCRIPTION: Fixes typos in the job titles.

A "douser" is a person who throws water on someone. A "dowser" is someone who searches for water. After the dowser has found water, then the douser can throw it on someone.

There is no such word as "restauranteur" in any language that I know of. The correct term is "restaurateur".

Although "investigatory" is technically a word, the correct phrase is "investigative reporter". (I later realized that might be a deliberate Zoolander reference, but it's still wrong.)

No Soaping Fountains

DESCRIPTION: Soaping fountains is not longer allowed, either autonomously or player-directed.

Covers fountains in all the EPs through FreeTime.

LAST UPDATE: August 24, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: University or later

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from University through Apartment Life.

No Life Insurance

DESCRIPTION: No money will be paid out when sims die of old age.

LAST UPDATE: August 24, 2008

KNOWN ISSUE: According to http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=8675.0 there is apparently a bug in this mod that prevents business inheritance. There is a link to a corrected version. If I get back to modding, I'll take a look at it myself.

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.
