News (11/13/2017) - The mod has been updated to version 9 to support the latest game patches from November 9, 2017.
Older versions of the mod are no longer supported or available for download.
Got a sim that's up all night? Perhaps they're a criminal, have the never weary trait, or they're just a plain night owl? Tired of not being able to invite your friends over, even though you know they're up too? This mod will put an end to seeing those annoying "John Doe is asleep" notices.
This mod comes in four flavors - you should install only one of them!
CallAnytime - Enables using the phone to chat or invite sims over at any time, day or night.
CallAnytime_ChatLonger - As above, but phone chats will last longer (from 15 to 60 minutes).
CallAnytime_ChatLonger+GainRelationship - As above, but while chatting your relationship level will go up (if they don't dislike you and only up to a limit)
CallAnytime_ChatLonger+GainLoseRelationship - As above, but the relationship will go down for sims that are disliked
Installation and Compatibility
Just unzip the .package file into your Mods folder. All four flavors of the mod are contained in a single zip file, you should use only one of them.
This mod may cause conflicts with any other mod which changes the phone "chat" and "invite to hang out at current lot" interactions. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, one or both mods will fail to function properly. The resources overriden by this mod are listed below in the Tech Notes
This mod was written for game version 22.214.171.1240 (November 9, 2017), but should be compatible with any recent version of the game.
This may be of interest if you are experiencing a conflict and know how to debug such issues, or if you are creating another phone mod and wish to incorporate these changes to eliminate conflicts. If you do create another mod using these changes, I would appreciate receiving credit.
