Keep an Eye on your Children with the Go To School Mod Pack
Schooling in the Sims universe can be rather dangerous and unpredictable. You don’t want to be caught off guard. Luckily, you can now follow your children to school and make sure that no harm will come to them. With the Go To School mod pack (which requires the Sims 4 Get to Work expansion pack), you can choose to be on your child’s tail whether they are starting off in elementary school or grown up and heading for high school:
For players who have both The Sims 4 and The Sims 4 Get to Work Expansion Pack, The Sims 4 Go to School Mod Pack allows you to follow your Child and Teen Sims to school. Go to School unlocks two new venue types – Elementary School and High School – which you can freely place in the world. When it is time for a Child or Teen Sim to go to school, as with Get to Work careers, you will be asked if you want to follow them, and if you opt to, you will be sent to the appropriate venue.
(Thanks SimplyNando for creating the above logo and for the name of the mod, which was previously undecided)
Elementary School – Follow your Child Sims to school – complete three introductory days before things get unpredictable.
High School – For Teen Sims, it’s time to move on to High School. Complete two introductory days and then attend classes with goals based on the current day.
Field Trips – Your Sims can be sent to Museums, Libraries and Gyms. For those who have Outdoor Retreat, A students can even be sent to Granite Falls!
Weekly Collection Hunts – Each week, A and B students embark on a weekly collection hunt. A students are completely unrestricted, and may even be sent to hidden lots or Granite Falls.
Costume Day – Every Wednesday, Elementary School students show up in silly outfits.
Hookie – Is school not your thing? Run off and have fun!
!!! PLEASE READ BEFORE USING !!!
You will need to have a school lot in your world for the mod to work properly. If you don’t, it will act strangely. You can either download one from the gallery, or build your own. To find one on the gallery, select “Lot” as a filter tag then select “Elementary School” or “High School” as a venue type. The school lot will need to be set as an “Elementary School” or “High School” in build mode.
Sometimes, when downloading a lot from the gallery, the game won’t automatically register it to the career events system. After downloading a school lot from the gallery or placing one from your library, set the lot type to something random, exit build mode, enter build mode again then set the lot type to the correct type. If this is your first time using the mod, I strongly suggest saving before sending a Sim to school for the first time, just to make sure you didn’t make any mistakes.
Please remember that this is a mod, not official content, so don’t expect Expansion Pack or Game Pack quality.
Two part download:
For the new venue types to appear, you will need to download either the Venue List Mod or the newest version of the Ambience Mod Mini Pack (not both)
