Ancient Highway's College Mods
- College Isn't Free series
(all of the College Series unless Ancient Highway indicates otherwise)
Ancient Highway's No Aging of YA
will not conflict with the new version of both TeenToYANoCollege EP8 and YABirthdayCake now that he checked for compatibility. The mod is also located at his site in Game Mods.
Chaavik's Better Cafeteria Duty Wages - University What’s New
: Teen To Young Adult No College EP8
was a new replacement mod for the older mod, Teen To Young Adult No College EP5 (Seasons)
, with both residential and apartment lots in mind to enable teens to grow up into Young Adults and remain at home with their families and go to college at the same time. YA Birthday Cake
has a new option to enable teens to Age to Young Adult on top of two existing options: Age to Adult and Take Finals Now. The mod also gives a “Went to College” memory to teens growing up into Young Adults as well as a “Grew Up Well” memory. What’s Old
: No Memory Uneducated
is a mod to prevent Sims from getting the negative “Never Went To College” memories when they age to adults without going to college as well as the uneducated memories. Not sure what the wording is for that memory. But nevertheless, Sims won’t get negative memories from not going to college. No Want Satisfy Uneducated
is a mod to prevent Sims from fulfilling their “Be Uneducated” fears of not going to college and grow up into adults. This also keeps Sims from going into crying and depression fits. College Interactions On Any Lot
is an existing mod to enable Young Adults to perform their college tasks: write term papers on their computers, write their class assignments and do college research from their bookcases at their homes or anywhere else. Not Compatible With
Squinge’s No Autonomous Research & Assignment
mod conflicts with College Interactions On Any Lot and will prevent Young Adults from performing their college tasks at their homes or anywhere else.
Pescado’s College Rampage on Macrotastics will not work on these lots if Young Adults remain at their homes.
TJ's Stinky Dormie Fix
will conflict with the CollegeInteractionsOnAnyLot. Remove the Stinky Dormie Fix mod if you want to use the CollegeInteractionsOnAnyLot mod for the college options to appear on your YAs at their home lots. How To Install

Basically, what you do to age teens to Young Adults is to go into Buy Mode and buy the cake. Place it on any counter or table. Direct your teen to the cake and select Age To Young Adult. The teen will then age into a Young Adult and get a new UI panel showing the Freshman first semester. The Sim’s clock does not start. You need to use the Semester Tester
to Start Class
. Then the Young Adult’s clock will run down from 72 hours to 0 hours as if he/she is on the dorm lot. Play your Young Adult through college and when you’re ready to age your Sim after graduating from college, buy the cake again and use the Age To Adult option.
When you do return to your Young Adult's home lot, you will find that you have to Start Class
again on the Semester Tester to continue counting down your Young Adult's college clock. Technical Support
