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.
    - alienpregnancyforfemales (by Kestrellyn or Faiuwle) - see post #103
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. If you to click 'try for baby' on the menu, your sims may get pregnant with a certain % chance, as it happens in vanilla game. Although, there might be other ways for YAs to get pregnant semi-autonomously. For example, if you take a male adult sim and his young adult wife to a community lot downtown and have them woohoo in the photo booth with ACR, they may get pregnant. 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.

Hi Lamare, thanks for these terrific Mods! I was wondering if I can choose what mods I want from these or must I have all of them? I like the idea of some students staying in University until their friends leave. I would really like this mod alone, can I have it in my game without the others?

Hi, rubygem01. Sorry I didn't answer earlier, it's just I don't know of such a mod. Your best choice might be to move sims to main 'hood families by asking them with other sims or using Teleporter or SimBlender.

Hey, Fyren5. Yes, you can choose. The whole purpose of making separate files was for people to pick and choose

Just to let you know, it may seem very obvious to many but these two Mods conflict with each other. HCDU picked it up.

YA-anygender-alien-pregnancy-FT-lamare
alienpregnancyforfemales (by Kestrellyn or Faiuwle unless they're the same person, idk)

I'm guessing I'll have to choose one or the other, which is sad. Oh well! :D

Edit: Duh, should have known. I re-read your info about the YA-anygender-alien-pregnancy-FT-lamare. Sorry about that!

@Fyren5, thank you for letting me know. I'll add new name in the list of conflicting mods.
What does the "alienpregnancyforfemales" do? If it only allows females to get pregnant after alien abduction, than I'd choose my mod, because my mod does that and allows pregnancy for young adults as well.

It allows adult female sims to get pregnant by alien abduction as well as male sims.

If yours allows adult females and YA females as well as adult males and YA males to have alien abduction pregnancies, I'll definitely take yours! Would it still work if I use Squinge's Mega College pack instead of University subhoods?

That's right.

Yes, I think so. If I remember correctly, Squinge's students are basically young adults living in the main 'hood.
