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.

Updates
10 June 2018: updated "move out of college" [3]
25 May 2018: added "join greek fix"
22 Apr. 2018: added "alien pregnancy for YA's of any gender"
17 Feb. 2018: improved "move out of college" [2]
04 Feb. 2018: added "teens stay teens"
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 fixes (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.
  • Note that teens on campus don't stay teens for very long - they get instantly "fixed" into young adults, usually on lot load. You'll find a mod to prevent that down below.
_

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
    - Wild Child - Darkwolf Jr. updated the mod so it can be used with mine and posted new topic. Get more info there.
    - AncientHighway's ah_lotfullofsims (see posts #67-68)
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-alien-pregnancy
  • Young adults may get pregnant after alien abduction.
  • Requires Free Time or later EP/SP
  • Choose only one version
  • Conflicts with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflicts:
    - BO's alien experiments
    - Wild Child - Darkwolf Jr. updated the mod so it can be used with mine and posted new topic. Get more info there.
Versions:
  • YA-male-alien-pregnancy-FT - only males can get pregnant (as usual)
  • YA-anygender-alien-pregnancy-FT - males and females can get pregnant
_

YA-move-out-of-college [3]
  • Requires Apartment Life or M&G
  • Sims have more choices for when and how they move out of college. They can decide not to move out right away. They can do that any time, even as adults or elders. And when and if they move out, they can take other sims and pets with them and manage funds with maximum precision. Details of the process:
    • Dropping out, getting expelled, or using up the time after graduation.
      • Available for students in college, unless you use some mod that pulls this procedure in main 'hood.
      • Normally, the game prompts young adults to age up to adults and move out. This mod lets them choose - to move out or to stay. They still age up.
      • Normally, they move out alone. This mod lets them take other sims with them, except for young adults that haven't graduated yet. They can choose who to take along and even move out the whole household. They can not leave kids or pets without a guardian.
      • Normally, the budget is decided automatically by the game. This mod allows to specify it precisely. Sims can take any part of current funds from nothing to everything. If they take at least $1, that's what they end up in 'hood bin. If they take nothing - they receive $20.000 "government aid".
      • After moving out sims can be found in main 'hood family bin.
    • Phone call option to move back to primary neighborhood.
      • Normally, it's available to graduated young adults on college lots before they used up their remaining time. This mod opens the phone call to adults and elders that happen to live at university.
      • Young adults are forced to age up to adults as usual. Adults and elders, of course, aren't.
      • Sims can take other sims with them, except for young adults that haven't graduated yet. They can choose who to take along and even move out the whole household. They can not leave kids or pets without a guardian. They can take any part of current funds from nothing to everything. If they take at least $1, that's what they end up in 'hood bin. If they take nothing - they receive $20.000 "government aid". After moving out sims can be found in main 'hood family bin.
  • 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:
    - Pescado’s 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.
_

Uni-teens-stay-teens
  • Prevents the game from turning teens into young adults on university lots, other than dorms.
  • This mod doesn't change aging process (6 pm thing). Normally sims wouldn't age on campus at all. If you'd like teens to age while living on campus, grab "Uni aging" mod.
  • For teens to age up to young adults and become students, they have to move in to dorm. You can use phone option to enroll. Other types of lots leave teens be teens.
  • Requires University AND later EP/SP (I have Ultimate Collection and can't test lower game versions; if you don't have UC/M&G/AL, try it in a testing 'hood first)
  • May conflict with any mod that overrides the same resources
  • Known conflicts:
    - InTeenimater (It actually helped me find the resources needed to be changed for teens to stay teens. I thought the dorm rule was clever, so I followed this approach. I thank InTeenimakers!)
_

Uni-join-greek-fix
  • When your sim tries to join a Greek house that has under-aged residents, the game will only use teens or older sims in the scenario. Children, toddlers and babies will be ignored. If the Greek household only has kids (unlikely, but still), your sim will not be able to join it.
  • Requires University AND any later EP/SP (I have Ultimate Collection and can't test lower game versions; if you don't have UC/M&G/AL, try it in a testing 'hood first)
  • May conflict with any mod that overrides the same resources

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.
  • Are the no20khandouts the Uni moveout compatible?
    Yes they are. YA-move-out-of-college takes priority when it comes to moving out of college, but no20khandouts still works in other moving out occasions. Load order doesn't matter, by the way.

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??

A mother must be a playable, not an NPC or townie, otherwise there's no trying for a baby with her.

I haven't been this excited about a mod since maybesomethingdunno’s Surf’s 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 don’t 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?

I’ve 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 – and the source was even more surprising. The conflict reported was with your Uni-SchoolBus mod and Pescado’s private school bill Fix.

Not sure when I’ll have a situation where these mods will come into play; although I think I may have the perfect couple to try this out with. I’m 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.

Of course, if you notice something odd, let me know.
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.

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.

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.
