This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a completely outdated mod that is useless to anyone who doesn't run an old unpatched version of the game. Use LittleMsSam's door locks for a better door lock that works with the current game versions!

Download LittleMsSam's Unlock/Lock Doors for chosen Sims instead here!

But let's say you want the front door to be locked only for your kids but open to everyone else. You can't do that because the door then will be locked for visitors since you can't make exception for visitors, for example. I was actually hoping this mod would be updated for toddlers because I hate when they go out the door and into the street on their own.

Thus, we are utterly helpless when something breaks or ceases to function for reasons beyond our control. For myself, I can speak to feeling a sense of abandonment. Of course, I'm in touch with reality, so I know its not true abandonment because its not personal in anyway, but it is abandonment just the same and I don't think I'm alone in this feeling.

Having said all that, I am making a heartfelt plea to anyone of the many capable modders out there to please repair this mod. Again, I'm aware that what is being asked requires your taking time from all that's already on your plate (which is probably a smorgasbord of TTD). But its been months since this mod has seen an update. I have some minor coding/testing abilities as I used to be a software tester and did a brief minor in programming (unfinished, however). Nonetheless, I am willing to try my hand at deciphering the code and making any updates required. Granted, I will need support to undertake this endeavor, but I am willing if no one else has time.

With sincerity and appreciation.

For what it's worth, I'd like to think if a modder disappeared, they'd be ok with someone reviving a mod based on his(/her) code. Perhaps that should be a thing modders should consider adding to their TOU. Something like "If I'm gone from MTS for more than X months, or more than X number of EA updates, anyone can update this mod as needed."

Just a thought.
Anyway, this is one of those functionality mods I would also like to see updated by someone.

I think there is such a rule here at MTS but I don't know the details.

Has anyone been able to fix this mod? I think its broken with the Dine Out Game Pack - the chief in resturaunt lots can't get into the kitchen and prepare meals!
I love this mod and its really handy to have.
Please fix it!

So for locking gates and doors, it's great. I click on a door, I get lock settings. I click on a gate, I get lock settings....
I click on stairs, I get lock settings. I click my neighbor's door, I get lock settings. Click on a wall, lock settings. Click the grass, lock settings. Click the street, lock settings.

Click anything, you get lock settings, your property or not. This seems incredibly broken, and it stops me from performing other interactions when on properties that aren't mine. I cannot visit other Sims. I'm sorry to say I'll have to uninstall this mod and search for something else.

I downloaded this mod because it makes it possible to lock doors in GTW! It's amazing for my doctor to have her own little office! However it does interfere with Dine Out so I have to uninstall it, hopefully there will be an update one day!!

Default Door Locking Mod needs update after apartments are added
can you please do an update so the welcome wagon doesn't stick around without actually starting the event? i also have the problem i can't visit someone's house and apartment, because those options are removed when clicking on the doors.

I have a similar problem where the chef exits the kitchen after setting up and acts as a regular sim instead of an employee. I like this mod and need it for the sims home to keep siblings and the live in housekeeper out of rooms they aren't supposed to go into. Have to remove it from the mod folder in order for the chef to remain a chef.


Edit:Nevermind. I realize now that certain Sims can be allowed through doors by selecting them and using the built in door lock system to allow them entry. Makes this mod redundant and unnecessary.

Hey, I downloaded the door lock mod but there is an issue..
I can select any door and set the locks to whatever I want, but the lock doesn't activate. Everyone just ignores it and walk trough anyways.

I installed and used this mod before on another pc, and it worked fine. As I used it before I'm sure it isn't an installation fault.
Anyone knows what could've caused it or how to fix it?

Any help appriciated!!

Is there anyway that a timer can be used so doors lock and unlock at certain ingame times eg unlocked only 6am to 8am

I noticed Scumbumbo is back!! Is there any chance that you will update this mod? It was my favorite mod in the whole game. The "in- game"/EA door locks have not worked consistently (with pets and people), they do not allow locks by gender or age, and they require that you designate locks for individuals one by one. Please say this is on the slate for an update. Thanks!! Huge fan!

It's not likely I'd update this one, it's a mess to be honest and would take a lot of work to bring up to date with the current game. I will likely take a look at it though to see how bad it will be to fix - maybe it's something easy.
