There are times, especially on holidays, I want my sims to exchange give to each other. Yes, we have "Give Gift" interaction option, but "Give Gift" only one way interaction. It can be problem if the one that we want to exchange gift with is townie, apartment neighbors, or apartment roommates. While they can receive gift from our sims, they cannot give gift to our sims, except using cheat to make them selectable. Even if we do so, their inventory are more likely empty so there is no gift that they can give to our sims. OK, we can buy the stuff in buy mode first and put in their inventory while they are selected using cheat, but it costs our sims' money. After all, I like suprise and random factor. Therefore, I made this mod.

UPDATES :
  • (03/10/2018) I add one more flavour that inventory selection windows will still be open for the givee sims when they exchange gift to the giver sims, but if the givee sims is a townie, most likely when this inventory selection windows is opened, there is only one object in their inventory : the gift that the giver has just given to them.
  • (03/18/2018)Fix bug that the "exchange menu" appears on pets when it is not supposed to.
  • (03/30/2018)Prevent "exchange gift" menu to appear on ghost


First things first :
Compatibility :
This mod is not compatible with base-game-only. The resources I've overriden are taken from Apartment Life, but the resources it is used are compatible with Freetime and Seasons

What does this mod do ?
  • Give new interaction "Exchange Gift" that appears when click on other sim, as long as the sim is a child or older and has been greeted.
  • It is clone of "Give Gift" interaction that comes with Seasons-EP and do not replace "Give Gift" interaction, so "Give Gift" interaction will still be there with this new "Exchange Gift" interaction .
  • As "Give Gift" does, "Exchange Gift" will open inventory windows for the giver sim to choose which stuff that a sim want to give to givee sim (I know, it should be "recipient", but I think I'll stick with "givee" )
  • This interaction can be rejected by the givee sim, depends of the value of the gift and relationship with the giver sim. If interaction is rejected by givee sim, no exchange gift will occur and the relationship between the two will be decrease (as "Give Gift" does)
  • If interaction is accepted by givee sim, after he/she receives the gift, the relationship between the two will be increase and he/she will always give another gift to the giver sim (because it is exchange gift after all).
  • If the givee sim is member of active family (that is selectable), then after he/she receives the gift, another inventory windows is opened for the givee sim to give gift to the giver sim. If the inventory windows is cancelled, the givee sim will give the giver sim a random food as gift.
  • If the givee sim is townie, NPC, roommate, or non-active family sim, then after he/she receives the gift, no inventory windows is opened. He/she will directly give the giver sims random gift as exchange. The gift is randomly selected from 60+ pre-defined basegame stuffs + foods, so you'll never know what stuff that the givee sim will give to the giver. (UPDATE : I add one more flavour that inventory selection windows will still be open for the givee sims when they exchange gift to the giver sims, but if the givee sims is a townie, most likely when this inventory selection windows is opened, there is only one object in their inventory : the gift that the giver has just given to them)
  • The gift stuff is "priceless", literally. I made all the stuffs that is given as gift with this interaction by givee sim, if it is randomly picked, has $0 price. So, no money cheat
  • If Holidays mod is installed, then on the Holiday, the givee sim always accepts the gift given to him/her through this interaction. There is no gift rejection on Holiday.


Conflicts :
This is social mod with private group, so I think it won't conflict with other mod.

Install :
  • Just put my mod in Downloads folder of your sims 2 data. If this mod does not work, try to change the load order, like rename my mod to "z_pqw_t_exchange_gift.package".
  • For inTeen user, please make sure this mod and all of its plugin, if any, are loaded after inTeen, by checking if there is "zzzz_" in front of original filename, and adding "zzzz_" if they have not been renamed yet.
  • This mod should be load after "pqw_holiday.package" and its plugins if any. If you do not change the name of those packages and this package, then it should be just fine, as it complies the load order.
  • It is adviced for you to backup your nhood once in a while and before installing this mod just in case.
