ACR2 and "Wants & Fears"
« on: December 21, 2009, 10:08:43 AM »
I've expressed in several places, how I tend to give my Sims whatever they *want*. Well, I need to clarify a bit further: I tend to give them *only* and *exactly* what they want. For example: I don't like my sims casually wasting away memorable occasions such as "very first kiss" or "very first woohoo" without at least scoring some points for it. That means, they must first roll a related want!

And now the trouble starts... Teens don't roll wants for Woohoo!!! I have this new Teen gal (aptly named "Sweet Sixteen" <g>) with a romance aspiration, and she's not getting any, because I'm waiting for her to *want* it :)

TwoJeffs, I understand that messing with the Wants table is a very hairy affair, so I'm just curious to know if you have any plans for an ACR-plugin or something similar that adds WooHoo-related wants to the tables for Teens? If not, I'd like to request that you think about such a thing, although I would completely understand if you're not going to...

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried syberspunk's Teen Enabled Adult Wants and Woohoo Wants?  It's available at both MTS or MATY.

I've asked others about having sims act autonomously on their wants, but the general response I've received is it's not possible.

Well, they do sometimes, but it's a matter of luck, and only things they can do autonomously anyway....

MTS, not so much -- the files are still missing from the great server debacle earlier this year. It's still on MATY, though.

Ok, I'll try that one! Thanks, everyone!

I'm not waiting for my Sims to autonomously act on their wants... that's too much to ask of an EAxis game. I just want them to want things that I can give them. A Romance Sim with no Romance is.... (oh horror) a Popularity Sim! Sweet is constantly making friends, wanting to be best friends and more... Poor thing! :halo:

Anyway... with only two more days as a Teen, this won't help Sweet much (my fault, should have asked sooner) but my next Romance Teen will be more active for sure :)

Again: thank you all!

ETA: And then we're dead in the water because, as TS says, of the MTS server debacle. MATY has everything EXCEPT the WooHoo wants ... So, if anyone here would be able and willing to share (AL or M&G version), I'd be delighted. Otherwise, my request for TJ still stands :)

Interestingly, my most determined woohooer among my teenage Romance sims is a Virgo..... now, Leo teens seem much more interested in making a lot of friends - maybe so when they get to college they can really start to live it up?

It is on MATY.  While it was last updated 2 years ago, there's nothing to say it won't still work with your game.  You can only try and see.

I was at Maty, and read the whole thread... syberspunk pulled the Woohoo package, because of some sort of limit on the download size on MATY, believing the file was safe at MTS, but that message was two years ago. I have all the files from that thread, and I'm sorry to say that the Woohoo thing is NOT part of it.

Syberspunk even refers people to the thread on MTS for that file in this post!

Yeah, you have 'teenenableadultwants.zip', 'zadultsdisablegosteadywants.zip', 'teenenableadultwantsrandomflirts.zip', and if your read on maybe even 'teenenableadultwantsDEBUG.zip'

See how that doesn't say anything about the woohoo part?

The thread does address teen woohoo wants.  I can only suppose that at one time, ste had made those changes to accommodate a new EP, and then agreed with TJ that it was a major PITA and withdrew it.  I wasn't aware of that.  I'll let TJ say whether he's will to take on the mess again.

Actually, he made those files, and uploaded them at the MTS thread... Check it and you'll see many more files for download... "'cept dat teh survr kresj eated dem..."

Anyway, I now guess that nobody here got any of those... Pity, but can't be helped... Thank you anyway for trying.

Will the Seasons version work for FT, doren, or should I just wait until I eventually install AL?

Since it is a core mod (?), which replaces the original wants file you would probably lose the FT wants. I kept the Seasons version in the Seasons "res" folder while I had FT installed, but it doesn't work if it is not in the folder of the last expansion pack (which also means that the AL version goes into the Mansions & Gardens folder if the stuff pack is installed).

With a new year coming wouldn't it be a good time to make that decisive step and install AL?

Not necessarily..... there are a lot of thing about AL and M&G that I don't want very much..... so until I get bored with FT, I think I shall leave it.

Good to know. :thumb: I thought as much, but wasn't entirely certain. Life for my Teens (most notably the Romance and Knowledge ones) is about to change :prancing:

Ok, can someone hold my hand and tell me which files I should install? lol I have all eps and stuff packs. I'm downloading from MTS, so sould I download teenenabledadultwants.zip, teenenabledadultwantsrandomflirts.zip, and EP8AL-teenenabledwoohoowants.zip?

And should I place all three of them in my M&G folder?

Normally before I let my teen sims woohoo I let them tell me (i.e. they always want to firlt, go on dates, make out, and back rub their boy/girl friend). So when they do all that I look at it that they are telling me they are readying for that next step.

Well, of the first two - teenenabledadultwants.zip and teenenabledadultwantsrandomflirts.zip -  you should choose only one!

The woohoowants package should replace the wants.package in your "Program files/...../The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff/TSData/Res/Wants" folder (back up the original wants package first). The rest simply goes into your downloads folder as always.

You should be good to go from there. :)

Obviously, that attachment has gone lost over time. Check the thread in the following link: http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=8378.0

You'll find a reference to a post on MTS, where the right version can be found.
