***New version is up. I would like any feedback from people on how their equestrian centers are functioning.***

Tired of the small window for equestrian competitions at the equestrian center? Look no further! This mod opens the equestrian center for 21 hours a day (10am to 7am). Rather than assigning the Equestrian Center its own hours, it was programed to use the generic venue hours for competition times. In order to make the competitions available those venue times had to be changed. One side effect of this is that the theater will display that the next show is at 10 am though the show seems to be available at it's regular time of 5 pm. Other venues don't seem to be affected by this change as they have their own start/end values.

Any mod that changes the functionality of the Equestrian Center competitions, including race payouts and win chances, will conflict with this mod. Any mod that changes the times that venues have shows and events *may* conflict with this mod.

This mod changes the following resources:

kEveningShowDays changed from "Wednesday, Saturday" to "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday"

kEveningShowStartHour changed from "17" to "10"
kEveningShowDurationHours changed from "6" to "23"
kMatineeStartHour changed from "12" to "10"
kMatineeDurationHours changed from "5" to "23"

When loading this mod, the next competition time will display but the extended hours do not activate until that time comes.

I have run into one other Hic-up though. But this time it is on the Theathers If you haven't found that already.

Personally I don't mind I just time my Pick up my Payments. When I do make a Mistake on Pick up Time just means more cash for my Sim

Im having some issues with this mod interfering with the theatre functions, I am unable to perform any interactions with the theatres whilst this mod is installed.

I think this mod might not like Nraas Careers...
I have all the EPs, Fast Lane & Movie Stuff SP. The mod description said this mod will conflict with anything that involves with the theatre, & the only theatre stuff I have is Nraas Careers. I will not be able to interact with the theatre after 17:00 or 5:00 PM ngame because of this mod. It would be great if somebody will take up this project...

Seems this mod is missing files? I get one package file. No time file to use. Can't get it to work. Really needed a mod like this.

Having issue with removing it. Removed it and can't use the equestrian center at all. I deleted caches. Shut down. Reloaded. Deleted and replaced the lot. Still nothing works. Very upset

This mod is causing my custom rabbit hole rug for the theatre to be completely blocked (no options available), and in other towns my sims cannot watch any movies because it's never the right time...
That's a pity because the idea is really good!
It might be a conflict with NRaas Careers, not sure (and not willing to deinstall that one).
