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
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 defaults (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 [2]
  • 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:
    • Drop out, get expelled, or use 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 other young adults. 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 the remaining time. This mod opens the phone call to adults and elders that happen to live at university.
      • Called young adults are forced to age up to adults as usual. Called adults and elders, of course, aren't.
      • Sims can take other sims with them, except for young adults. 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!)

Stuff to download elsewhere:
  • Clothing with pregnant morphs. It's not necessary, but nice to have to be able to see a belly.
    • Young mothers have sweater outfit as default maternity wear. They wear it as casual.
    • Some pj's and undies already have preg morphs. The ones that I know of include these and that basic female underwear that I didn't find image in the database of. If you don't download replacements for other sleepwear, you could just make sure to buy these for a future mother before she starts showing.
  • I suggest you:
_

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. They won't try for baby unless you to click the action on the menu. When you click 'try for baby', your sims may get pregnant with a certain % chance as it happens in vanilla game. 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.

Just want to make sure I'm understanding how the YA-move-out-of-college mod works. They do not have to move out three days after they graduate, right? In other words, you could have a sim stay on campus for post-graduate study (if you're the roleplaying type) if you wanted?

@NewSimgirl2011, yep, most of the set would conflict with InTeen. I've edited the post to add notes on it where I know about potential issues, but even where I haven't noted the conflict, it still may be. InTeen is a big complicated mod, I've never used it, so I may be mistaken somewhere.

@Amalia81, yes, sims have an option to stay. When graduating time comes, you'll see a dialog pop-up asking you, whether you want the sim to move out.

That is unfortunate, since I know a number of simmers who use InTeen do so because it creates for a more realistic world. Of course, I thought there were mods that worked with InTeen or a flavorpak or something that made YA's having kids possible or something other than this too...

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

Default New addition
I added new file:
Uni-teens-stay-teens - prevents the game from turning teens into young adults on university lots, other than dorms. So teens may stay teens until you decide it's time they became students.
See full description in main post.

I wanted to offer some feedback. I have my very first little family at uni now. It's a husband, wife, their infant, and their many, many housemates. Most of the college students have jobs as well as school.

I have never liked uni, never. For the first time I am LOVING it. This makes the housemates more than just ships that pass in the day as they run from class to class. They are all invested in little Baz. They all contribute to the house hold. They're friends, and for the first time, ever, kind of real to me.

Thank you for this, Lamare. Thank you a thousand times!

Autonomously? No. Unless they update ACR to allow autonomous interaction for YAs.

Were you going to upload a mod for moving in pets into dorms/private houses? I wanted to have each dorm a kind of mascot animal, that goes with a sim when they become elderly, but currently have to teleport them in with Simblender.

Hey, @Aileena. I don't use Mega College Pack, so I can't be entirely sure, but I'd estimate that using these mods together probably won't cause any bugs.
HCDU doesn't show any conflicts.

Edit: Never mind about ACR, I see you already addressed it.

Conflict found: AncientHighway's lotfullofsims conflicts with YA-pregnancy (probably the pregnancy check that sees if there is room for another sim). Any way to resolve this?

I haven't installed it, but I'm like 99% certain that the male alien pregnancy file will conflict with alien pregnancy for all genders mods. Is there any way we could get alien pregnancy for all genders on campus?

I do not see a conflict with no20khandouts and the Uni moveout, but I am really suspicious, because you seem to be doing the same thing (except with more user control) when it comes to uni moveout. Are these mods really compatible?

Try to load my file after AncientHighway's lotfullofsims.
I looked into it, and it looks like they overwrite "Pregnancy - Can We Get Pregnant?" BHAV just so it can ignore "Lot - Full of Sims?" check. I don't understand why they do it, since they also modify "Lot - Full of Sims?" making it always return false, so it won't interfere with pregnancy anyway. Looks like a bit of an overkill there. I might be missing something, but I don't see any other changes in Pregnancy BHAV they make.
So, yeah, let my version of Pregnancy BHAV overwrite theirs.
Thanks for reporting, I'll edit the list of conflicts.

@kestrellyn, isn't ambodymaternitycomfy already available for young adults? I don't remember... That's a good question. As for extra male maternity clothes, I'm not aware of good places to hunt for them (I've never downloaded any), but I've seen such outfits around.

Hi, I found kind of a funny bug with Greek houses. I had a sim in a Greek house get pregnant and have a baby. Then, I moved a teen sim from the main hood into a dorm and tried to have her join the Greek house (she was BFFs with all of the YA sims in the Greek house). The baby answered the phone for the Greek house, and then showed up with the other Greek house members for the socialization period, zipping around the lot sort of like the other Greek house members did except without walking, and my sim had to cuddle and play with the baby until she got 10 daily relationship with him in order to join the Greek house. Could babies and toddlers and children possibly be excluded from the Greek house joining process?

Also, to follow up from earlier, the male alien pregnancy clothing is wearable by YAs, but there do not seem to be any male YA pajamas that show the bump.

Hey, @kestrellyn. Sorry I didn't reply earlier. I saw your post and even made a fix for joining Greek house. I was going to post after I had a chance to test it in game. It might take a while, mostly for technical reasons.
