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. 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.

- Uni-join-greek-fix (new file) - 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.
- Maternity outfit fix for young adults (separate thread) - The fix makes maternity wear fully available to students by default.

The Move out function is still a bit unreliable. I tried to have two graduated students call the taxi to move back to my main hood, but the taxi never showed. I had to move them to a new house and then try again, the student that graduated first had no luck (talked on the phone but taxi never showed), but when the second student called the taxi showed up and I got the popup to select who should move out. Also, when the second student graduated, I got a popup for the first student to move back to the main hood, but was not able to select the newly graduated student to move out with her, only their toddler.

@SciBirg hi and thank you for letting me know about these things. I'm happy to tell you I've fixed both of them and updated the file. Get new version from ya-move-out-of-college.zip and don't forget to remove the old version from your downloads.

The first part, about taxi not arriving, was actually a rare maxis bug. I could reproduce it without mods, so I'm pretty sure it was it.
Some details:
When a sim calls to move back to main 'hood or to drop out, the game creates a controller and sets the caller as it's owner. This controller is supposed to create a taxi, push sims to move out and all that. But, when the controller starts to operate, instead of working for the owner, it cycles through all the people on lot. Should it find another sim first, it can change its owner to that new sim and completely forget about the original owner. So, the caller sim doesn't get the job done for him. It rarely happens because a few things have to coincide - another graduate doesn't have a controller assigned to him yet, caller's object ID is lower then another graduate's, etc. Anyway, I fixed it now.

The second part, about not being able to take another graduate with you, was my fault. I specifically disallowed moving out of college with young adults to prevent players from taking current students to main 'hood by mistake. Why didn't I think of making an exception for *graduated* young adults? I don't know. But from now on, it is allowed to select them for moving. All young graduates will age up to adults before getting in a taxi.

Hi, I had a YA age up to adult on campus and stay there to wait for her husband to graduate, but she is not able to get a job using the computer. Is this working as intended? I tried selling the computer and rebuying it, but nothing changed.

Edit: Nevermind, I figured out how to mod it so she could get a job.

It is possible that you can make a mod for teenager be similar to Young Adult that they had to pick GCSE of what they are doing and had to do homework and learn a certain skill to learn more about their GCSE which give them better grade than at final stage they go to prom and can pick whether to go to College or go to Six-from?

Other people with ACR seem to have no problems, so I'd suggest you to run HCDU to see if there are any possible conflicts. There might be other mods in play. If scan doesn't show anything, post an error log here (either upload a file, or copy-paste its contents under a spoiler tag), and I'll take a look. Can't say if I'll be able to figure out the problem, but I'll give it a try.

I have something to report about this mod's interaction with ACR. You said that autonomous woohoo with ACR should not allow autonomous try for baby with young adults, because it's a separate interaction, and in general it doesn't - if I direct young adult female sims to woohoo in bed or in the hot tub on college lots using ACR, I do not get the ACR dialogs about whether they chose to try for baby or not, and they don't get pregnant. But when I took a male adult sim and his young adult wife to a community lot downtown and had them woohoo in the photo booth with ACR, they did roll that dialog, and they did get pregnant. I'm sure this is entirely TwoJeffs' fault and nothing to do with you, but I thought it might be worth noting when mentioning the mod's compatibility with ACR. I don't know if it happened because the lot wasn't in the university, or because they woohooed in the photo booth, or what.

Thanks, @kestrellyn
I based what I said on the feedback from someone who uses ACR and played a few sim-weeks before realizing young adults don't try for baby autonomously. I guess photo booth provides a loophole. Or was it because the other sim was an adult? Anyway, I'll add that to my post.

Now that I think about it, I can't remember if they woohooed at home while he was an adult. Unfortunately she will graduate before she gives birth, so I won't be able to experiment further.

Hi! I'd like to ask if this mod works with larger households, or is there a way to make it work that way? I currently have 8 sims at university dorm lot, and there's no option to try for baby. I'm using a larger household mod by BO (not sure what the name was). Just wanted to ask before moving some of my sims out, thank you in advance.

//edit
I'm sorry I bothered you, I just noticed I hadn't deleted TwoJeffs preg for all genders hack, so everything's working now. Thank you for this mod, it made playing University much more interesting!

Sorry, I have another greek house weirdness to report. I had a sim who was born in a greek house, his father moved out with him and went back to the neighborhood, and now he's grown up and is a young adult in college. When he got to campus, he was automatically counted as a member of the greek house, and was able to move in without applying for membership (despite not knowing all of the current members of the greek house).

Edit: I just tested Risky Woohoo and it is does not work in conjunction with this mod. Is it possible to mod it in a way, so that the Woohoo interaction for Young Adults is replaced with a risky one?
However, I discovered that the Try For A Baby interaction was actually available under the ACR Pie Menu. I know it was only available when Inteen was installed. So, is ACR maybe modded in a way, so that any Young Adult maternity hack works with it? Is it really confirmed that this mod does not work in conjuntion with ACR?

I just had a young adult woohooing another young adult get pregnant from risky woohoo via ACR, so I have to conclude that ACR does work in conjunction with this mod, it's just unlikely for young adults to autonomously try for baby, which does make sense.
