Nice, thanks! I've been looking for it and when I saw that no one was going to finish it I lost all hope and gave up. I hope you can find it :)


Found it. It also has a feature that may break the T for Teen rating, so I'll PM it to you. :)

Alright thanks! To talk about future improvements: I do hope that they put it in, since there are no mods allowed in the dynasty. Still my other couples are saved ;)

Woohooer by Twallan also does this and does not break the T for Teen rating. All you need is CC for male/male couples then.

I also want a Nooboo DNA Bank, what happens if a female Sims doesn't want a husband or boyfriend but wants kids, they have to adopt. But what if they want there own kids? Not that adopting is bad, just sometimes maybe they want to have the thrill of pregnancy. In real life sometimes a couple can't have a child and turns to something like this, why can't Sims?

It'd actually be pretty awesome if they did something like that.. I'm not trying to be sexist or anything, but I always felt a bit weird about the mods that allow male pregnancies just because I prefer realism in my games, but I've always wanted my female gay couples to be able to have a child from some sort of DNA bank. I can't really look at a male's pregnant belly without laughing, though. :P If it was to ever be featured, I think they'd allow it for male gay couples as well just to keep things fair, but I'd personally prefer the adoption process for them.. Or I'd even go as far as to go into CAS and take both sims, turn one into a girl, and then do that "Mix genetics" thing to produce a toddler, then I'd put the toddler there in the house with them both as males, if I really wanted the child to look like them.

There's probably a mod out there that does this, but please can we have an option to allow different life lengths for different files?? And in a similar but probably more complicated vein, I'd really like to have different graphics settings in different files as well. Not sure if that's possible, but with a town like UC I can only play on lowest settings, yet I want to keep my mix of medium/high in the other towns. (I don't know if it can be done, but if there is a mod that my Google searches have missed that allows it, I'd love to know)

I think you can turn off free will for a selected Sim in the options menu, provided you are running an up-to-date game.

P.S.: What is 'the pie menu'?

The pie menu is the options that appear when you click on an object. (ie, a Sim or an oven)

I've never heard to that referred to as the 'pie menu'! Interesting term.

I would just love love if they made away for us to arrange sims on our own, like we could grab their arm and move it so that it is over their mouth, and then open the mouth, raise the eyebrows, open the eyes wider, position their legs as if they are taking a step back. I'm sure that story writers would appreciate that. Maybe it could be a whole EP "Story Teller's Complete Control" as I imagine it would take a lot of coding and such, so you can't just force it upon someone who wont ever use it. And you could save your favorite poses, like pose player right?

LOL Swirl-Girl, that sounds an awful lot like Roller Coaster Tycoon! That would be a really fun idea though.

I'd like grown ups to be able to make all the sweet treats that the young children get to make in their toy ovens, like pie, cakes, brownies, etc. Perhaps Ice Cream sundae could be a new dish since we have the ice cream machine!  :o  :D  ;D

That ice cream machine! It has to be fixed, the sims use it far too often. ::)

I don't think that'll happen, Swirl-Girl, but it'd be awesome if it did. Reminds me that I'm not using the Movie Maker cheats as often as I used to.. They're not allowed in dynasties but my legacy used to use them a lot so I'll probably start messing around with them again in that file.

Well maybe making hot fudge or bacon flavored sundaes will distract them!  :o Or we might as well have a Burger King rabbit hole with the ice cream maker. I received it as a gift, but haven't gotten around to using it yet since I'm in the middle of uninstall-reinstall.

Fez, I thought movie maker cheats were allowed in Dynasties?

From the rules for the Immortal Dynasty:

Build cheats such as moveobjects and placeFriezes are fine whenever needed. The same goes for Movie/Picture taking cheats such as hideHeadlineEffects.

I agree. I bought it in the store because I liked the idea of sims being able to deep fry (but where are the fries?) and make there own ice cream. Now I don't use them anymore. My sims will just stop any action to eat jet another ice cream... It's worse then the sprinklers!

I also recieved it as a gift and so I feel bad about not using it but it really just does not function properly. There's meant to be a fix out there somewhere that means it's treated like the microwave in that the sims really only use it when you ask them to but I can't remember where I found it.

I have the ice cream machine and the deep fryer too. I don't think my sim likes it. She always heads for the fridge. She did deep-fry ice cream once on her own, but I directed her use it and might've hit the wrong option without noticing.

Having gone back to my band household and the inevitable frustration of going for weeks without a gig, I REALLY wish you could get steady ones for bands like you can get for Showtime professions. I don't want to play a bunch of buskers plinking out the same boring Jam/Blues chords over and over ad nauseam. And if they do get a gig once in a blue moon, they never have an audience. :(

I wish that there could be foods that sims don't like.  Not like it would give them a negative moodlet, but they would just make a funny face while eating the food and act mad for a while.  And if it were a kid who got fed bad food, they would have the possibility of throwing a tantrum.  If that ever happened, I would make all of my sims hate pancakes, and then make them eat pancakes for every meal every day and watch the funy faces begin! :D
EAT COOKIES.  You'll like them!

Unless I'm missing something (and I have played Rollercoaster Tycoon recently), you couldn't.

@Fez and @Chuckles:

Sorry, but it's actually not. I asked Metro about that way back in October and he said no because of Sim Shutdown (turning off free will).

I would quite like car seats for toddlers and babies so that my Sim couple could take all the kids to the park at once.Also I want a people carrier car,you know the kind that can fit a large family in. I know that the limo fits a large amount of people in but that isn't buyable right away.

That's what I thought. Oh well, I hadn't used it yet anyway.

Driving the car yourself would be nice. The hospital could get new functions as well, for the gamers who are less experienced with driving. ;)

I feel that there should be negative traits to go along with the "likes animals/cats/dogs/horses" traits from Pets. Plenty of people in real life do not like a certain type of animal or animals in general. If Sims can Dislike Children, they should definitely be able to dislike animals. They could get a negative moodlet when around animals or in a home with animals.
