Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello, LizzLove here again. I know I have not been posting much lately, but life does interfere. Anyway at long last I have the "Swinger" bed hack ready.
This is a change to the GLOBAL bed behaviours and as such changes all double beds.

(edit by Lizz)
I will try to make make things clearer...
This is a global hack, it changes the behaviour of ALL of your double beds. They will not look any different, but the "relax" menu options are now different. If you relax with a stranger you will get the same menu options as if you were in love with that person (Cuddle, Kiss, Makeout, Woohoo [Try for baby]). It should work with even cloned beds as long as they did not include the "bed globals" in the clone (most do not).

So you will not see a new bed on your list, but all your existing beds will now work a little bit differently. If the menu is not different with strangers you may have to sell that bed and buy a new one. But at least for me, all of my existing beds changed without having to buy a new one.
(end edit)

This hack removes the need for pretty much any sort of relationship between two people to have sex in a bed. They have to "know" each other for the menu to come up, but just having them relax for a few minutes will fix that. They can even dislike each other, but as long as they "know" each other they can... Cuddle, Kiss, Make Out, and Woohoo. This only works in bed. Outside of the bed all the behaviours remain the normal.

I have tested this pretty hard over the last few days and it looks like I have found all the bugs. But as I do not have University I cannot test for compatablity with the expansion.

Update:
One of the reasons I did not add a pregnancy hack is that there are already
so many of them. If I mod this, then many of those might break. So I took a
look at the pregnancy hacks out there. In doing so I found a left over behavior that might have caused problems with some other hacks. I have removed this and replaced the files.

My fixed hack should work with:

RiskyWoohooInBed - No conflicts that I can see.
InTeenimater_Final11c - - No conflicts that I can see.
S2L_Teen_Woohoo_Basic_V1b
(Note: this one overrides the No-Shoo behavior, but it looks like it should still work, the code looks just like mine.)

All that being said, I have added two more modified behaviors to the package and called it LizzLove SwingerBed_with pregnacy_01.

The two new behaviors are:
(Social - Try for Baby - TEST)
and
(Social - Try for Baby - Set Result)
These do not seem to appear in the other mods, and these are the behaviors that test to see if you are in love first. This way all the others should still work, but now you just don't have to be in love first.

There may be other hacks out there that will affect my mod or be affected by it. These are the ones I know about.

I tested the new files for several hours and with lots of different sims, no
problems were found.

Please remove the old files and replace them with only ONE of the new mods.
If you want "Try for Baby" then place
"LizzLove SwingerBed_with pregnacy_01.package" in your downloads
OR
If you don't want "Try for Baby" then place
"LizzLove SwingerBed_01a.package" in your downloads.

Please remove the old LizzLove SwingerBed_01.package before doing this. It may interfere with some of the Teen Woohoo packages. It should not, but just in case. (It did not for me, as the one common bhav was modified similar to the others, but to be on the safe side I removed it. It was left over from an early test, and I just forgot it was there. Sorry)

I have most of the hacks that can be downloaded here and have found no problems. I have tested with the Teen Woohoo, my No Jealousy and No-shoo hacks, and countless others.

To use this just have your sim relax in bed and invite another sim to join him/her. If they have never meet before give them a few seconds to get to "know" each other and then let the fun begin.

Like the other hacks just unzip this file into your Downloads Directory.

Like all my other hacks please do NOT redistribute this file, and let me know if it appears on any "pay" sites. My hacks are always free, and will remain so.

Please post here if you find any problems, and try to be specific so I can find any bugs.

Thanks,
LizzLove.

Thanks, I thought it might be, I remember it happening once a long time ago, my sims spend more time in bed than in the tub so I was not sure.

That being the case I think the tub hack might be real close to beta release then. hehe.

Nope, downloads works just fine. Not sure if it will work in globals. This is just a "global" hack. That is it is a modification to the bed bhav global files (originally in objects.package). This means it affects ALL double beds. Like almost all other mods just unzip the file into your download directory.


Love Lizz.

I like this Hack very much. Thanks. But.. Would it be too much difficult to make a Bed Hack? Because if we don't want this to happen in all beds, in all game but just in some rooms and in a specific situation...

If it was possible, you could try to make another Hack, not Global. Then if we buy that Bed, our Sims would have the same things like in this Hack but not affecting all Beds.

Just an idea.

There's already a mod that does this. It's part of the Woohoo NPC sims by Danny66.

He he...When my male sims at work his wife can have her own appointments where men come to see her for woohoo...lol, it would be better if you had to pay to have woohoo with a person if you weren't in love, like a prostitue, is it possible to do that?

Post 109 sounds like a good idea. It would provide a bit more balance to the game play, replacing time cost in developing a relationship with monetary cost. Perhaps somebody can figure how to link it to the 'TIP' menu? The less a person likes you, the more you would have to offer to tip to get him/her into the mood?

So this will not be done anytime soon. But if I do this then it "should" remove most if not all of the other conflicts. Being a self contained object that does not use the bed globals should prevent conflicts. BUT it will also most likely mean that any other global bed hack would not affect it either. So you would lose the "sleep naked" hack etc.

i have had the hottub problem in an utterly clean game on an utterly clean pc. mine had to be redone recently, so off i went to do just that. it's how i make a living, so no biggy. first thing i put on the sytem was TS2, and that is one of the first oddities that occurrend within my game, the locking up in the hottub. happens both on community and residential lots. the other lock up i frequently get is with the headmaster.

since then, i just deal with it, but i have modded the crap outta me game i must say! i have twojeffs casual woohoo, a wonderful lil' thingy, but after reading 2/3 of the thread here, i am going to take that one out for the sake of safety while testing (and probably keeping) the swinger bed with preg.

one aside....

i don't think lizlove ever made any claim at all to work on an incest hack. i cannot find any explicit wording that says she or anyone else has.

it is... a side affect of of how other hacks work, a by-product. it is not a deliberately coded mod that i have seen as a singular goal by her or anyone else within this forum.

that said.... hah hah, i have the casual woohoo mod, and the insim/ and inteenimator... (took teen woohoo out to be safe) and many, i mean many, of my sims are in love with their own family members from the teen age group up. they did it on their own, as i enjoy freewill, and, sometimes just get busy with other things and forget i have TS2 on. when i came back and play i notice that some are full on in love. i don't mind, they are just pieces of code. in fact in some cases, it is desirable since i don't know how to save a sim, package it up for safe keeping. the one i use as my avatar is me as a sim, and i was afraid i'd lose her, but then she had the family thing go on with her mom and her baby looks just like her. exactly. so from a dna preservation point of view, i appreciate it, but it's just a side effect. it was never a goal. now i have an insurance that my fav sim will never die, not truly.

below is a pic of me, Sophie as a sim in purple. to the right in red is her daughter. all bits of code, not incest. and it's code i am glad to have perpetuated.

thanks for your work miss liz, i can't wait to see how it works!

Has anyone had a problem with many of the pie menus changing to "spawn memory" after installing the Swinger's Bed? This started almost immediately after I installed.

I have the EP, pregnancy for all, merola's picture, gardening is fun, daily gardener and slow aspiration decline hacks.

The great thing about the Swinger's Bed is that now I give my Sims the romance aspiration whereas I didn't before because it was just too much trouble.

I'd like to keep this hack. Maybe the "spawn memory" thing is from something else? I'd appreciate any suggestions.

This seems to be a common problem with the EP and some hacks. It may or may not be related to my mod. Take a look at these threads and see if they help at all.

Lots of EP users with my mod with no problems, so I think it is most likely something else. Try removing the Swingers bed from your downloads and see if that makes it go away, let me know if removing it fixes your problem.. If not then it is most likely something else.

Look forward to your being able to repeat your Sims 1 hack - so much fun that they starved to death. I heard of one fellow who died from laughing to much at a comedy called The Goodies (he had a heart attack)

The "Spawn Memory Manager" problem has nothing to do with this hack. It's caused by a non-EP compatible hack that is modifying the sim object pie menu (which this mod does not). The sim object pie menu is the menu you see whenever you click on a sim. Unfortunately, there's a large number of mods which change this menu. If any one of them is using an "old" menu template (from the Original Sims 2) and you have the University EP installed, you *will* experience this problem.

If you don't know which mod is causing you problems, then you need to purge the contents of your entire Downloads folder and methodically start moving them back 1 at a time, testing each time in between until the problem resurfaces.

I removed a few hacks yesterday because one of them were really messing up my game and the "spawn memory" disappeared.

This hack however works great.

Thank you for this, it is great, I have a sim who wants to impregnate every female in the neigborhood, Now he can with no problems. Also a funny thing I noticed is that if your sim has not had thier first kiss yet you can not select kiss or makeout untill they do.

That's actually a "bug" in the Maxis code. For whatever reasons, Maxis made kissing and makeout conditional upon having your first kiss. But you can have woohoo with anyone provided your rel. scores are high enough (and with this mod installed, your rel scores are irrelevant). I guess Maxis was banking on the probability that your relationship score would never get high enough to woohoo without having had your first kiss.
