When you mention something in this thread, and then a few days later someone makes it! I doubt very much her work had anything to do with my wish, but still . . . it's been a rough year, and this just made my day.

@AndrewGloria - oh goodness! If it's true, what they say about real Scotsmen and what they do or don't wear under a kilt... having one floating overhead? Looking up could be the most traumatic experience of a person's life!!

...particularly if they're like birds who have the ability to relieve themselves during flight. All I can visualize is Fat Bastard, from Austin Powers! Oomph!!!

I have another 'wanna see but probably nobody cares enough':
Make a mod like 'autohomework' for college kids, where at 7 (or later) they automatically do their paper that they've been wishing to do. It'll fulfill their want to do it, and also have a beneficial effect on their grades. I don't see why it can't be done.

@FranH
I have such a mod for years. I think it was by MogHughson here on MTS.

If you mean the college desk locator, that does not make them do their homework automatically. It just secures the desk for doing their assignments.
University Mod for use with the Desk Locator
I was in reference to a similar mod to 'auto' do homework, which is only for children and teens.
But I downloaded anyway because it might be useful to those in Uni.

I am sorry. I was wrong. It's created by Monique: http://modthesims.info/d/105857

That's only for children and teens, though. Not University.

I don't mind their not doing it automatically, but I DO wish they could find where they put it. Nothing bothers me like trying to tell a student to do his homework, only to find he's laid both copies of it somewhere on a lot that is cluttered with copies of other students' work. I either have to find and click on all of them to locate one particular students', or just delete them all.

I've used MogHughson's Desk Locator for a long time and haven't had the lost homework problem since. http://modthesims.info/d/312004
This mod is for it to work at Uni http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=313224

Read all the info to see what it clashes with and how the object works. I've placed these on the floor, shelves, table or desk. They will go to the area and place it on the desk or even the floor if there isn't a clear spot. Since children and teens have different school hours, I've put 2 objects on 1 desk and the teen will be done by the time a child comes home. It does work with faster homework mod, forget where that is. Another problem I used to have, not sure if this helped it, 1 sim gets off the bus, blocks the exit for the next sim, who would then not have their homework. The mod I use for this is go to the back of the bus, or to the mailbox (there might be 2 different mods around). The 1st sim moves away, checks the homework while the next sim gets off the bus and heads to the spot. If nothing else interfers, there is usually a nice flow of sims doing each step while not interfering with the next sim. I'm not sure why homework vanishes, if it still does it with this mod, (not 100% this fixed the lost item) then follow any advice here that might help. Hopefully I explained it clear enough. (:

Didn't see the other posts mentioning this one before I posted, but I also use a faster homework mod and one that makes them place it on desk and do it right away, not sure if it's 1 mod combined or 2 separate ones. Again, don't remember where they're from.

When you forgive, you heal. When you let go, you grow.

I'm pretty sure this does not exist (if it does, some please do correct me!). I really want some way, pretty much any way, to multiply written novels in game...that doesn't require OFB. (I do have OFB, but I've been stubbornly holding off on installing it as I don't find the vast majority of its features fun.) I am aware of just one mod that allows the multiplication of written novels, and it of course does in fact require OFB, because the multiplication mechanic depends on the "restocking" feature - which means not only would I need to install OFB but I'd actually have to actively play a business lot in order to produce multiple copies of written novels. What I'd like is just some way for sims to maybe order extra copies of the book from the publisher, over the phone or online...I don't really care; like I said, I just want any way to acquire multiple copies of the novels so that slogging through actually writing one is worthwhile as it actually ends up benefiting the whole hood in a meaningful way.

I'd like it to be more difficult to have a great party. The whole household can be asleep and two guests can be chatting and the end rating will be roof raisin'.

I'd also like the wants rolled on a date to reflect a Sim's personality a lot more. The constant dancing, tickling, and dirty jokes are mind-numbing...a mod like SnorkackSearcher's Fewer Hobby Wants but for other things would be a blessing.

There's the duplication trick. Buy a table, place the book on it. Put the table in inventory and pull it back out. Remove the book from the table. Put the table back in inventory. Switch to the aspiration rewards tab, then back to inventory. Take the table back out. It'll have another book on it!

This works with any furniture with slots, even OMSPS. You can also duplicate multiple objects if there's multiple slots.

OMG, you may just have saved me from having to install OFB!

some way for plant sims to produce a specific number of plant "babies"; like various hacks can make sims pregnant with a certain number of babies.

I'm going to have a peeky at that mod to see if I can do anything with it. Don't hold your breath because I will be the first to admit that I can't do much beyond ticking off boxes and rewriting text-but I will look at it to see if there's any boxes to check off. (and I'm not going to hold my own breath, either)

Edit: I did open it up in SimPE-and was not surprised to discover that not much can be done by anyone who doesn't know how BHAV's work. I don't, and so it's going to remain a mystery to me.

I would like a mod that allowed my adults to do some college distance learning.
Meaning they wouldn't go to college, they'd be able to have regular jobs and regular lives, but eventually graduate.

In my mind they would enroll in a distance learning course which would have the same skill requeriments as it would have in college, and they would need to research and/or write term papers (but not attend to classes) until they reach the treshold which would allow them to pass the semester. They would not be time-limited though, it might take them several semesters to actually pass.
And when they finish they get their degree, which would have the same benefits as the regular one.

I think that would have some technical complications (such as having a a job section and a college section at the same time). But maybe something simplier, like writing some sort of term-papers (which might take longer than regular college ones) would equal to pass a semester, and after doing 8 of those they would graduate... would that be possible?
It would be certainly awesome.

I recently learned this too.
Only too bad the item on the table was an urn. >_<
