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This is a completely outdated mod that is useless to anyone who doesn't run an old unpatched version of the game.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!

The thread's getting quite long, so I'll bump up a previous post I made to someone with what sounds like the same problem...

It sounds like the package (thats the part that contains the menus) is installed properly, but the script file that actually performs the locking is not. Basically just put the two files contained in the zip file you downloaded into your Mods folder as is. I've added a screenshot to the description page for the mod showing the two files that need to be in your Mods folder for this to work properly. Also, make sure script mods are enabled in your game options!

It would be five per door, and 5 is just a number I'm throwing out - might end up being more or less, but I think five should be doable. The main point is that there would have to be a limited number of "slots".

*Bows down*
We are not worthy...We are not worthy...

Jokes aside, this is awesome! :D Thank you so much! People can complain about TS4 all they want but when awesome modders like you pull through and create this aesthetic mods that really round out the game it makes it pretty awesome. :D <3 Thanks so much again! Keep it up and I hope you get GTW soon (it's loads of fun), but from what I've seen YouTubers (like The Sim Supply) use the Mod it seems to work with GTW technically the Sim owns the lot, it's just a retail lot, I haven't tried it myself but I'll update if I doesn't! <3

If you could send me a screenshot of the files in your mod folder maybe I'll see something that's not right. Also, double check that the script mod option is on if you haven't already as the option generally gets switched back off by the game patches and sometimes it can be easy to forget.

Thanks, looks good except the language ID number is wrong (but I fixed that) and the last string isn't translated (Lock Out Child Sims) but I think I got that right based on the other strings you translated. Let me know if it ends up needing correcting.

The upload has been updated, the package file inside is now version 1a. The script has not changed.

Thanks to @egureh @letrax @Okuraio and @JakeC0001 for their kind work providing translations!!!

i hope it possible. would make my game so much better! thanks for all the work you do!'

edit: a bit off topic.. but in the coding, did you find anything about making it so when you go in CAS, it only brings in the 1 sim, not the whole family (breaking anyone game who plays with more then 8)
i know aliens can go in cas by themselves to disguise themself, anyway to give that option to all human sims?

Between fixing mods broken by the latest patch and working on this, I haven't played in weeks, lol!
I saw another test it out in their lets play. Seems it works to keep visitors out even on store lots owned by sims. I don't have that pack yet either, but I can say with certainty that it didn't seem to fail or disappoint in that area. I just downloaded it because of that person testing it out. I wanted to try it out myself. Thank you for making this.

Bless this post.

But seriously, thank you so much for this! You've probably already been asked this a million times, but the only thing this really needs is an option to hand-pick which Sims can use the door. But aside from that, this is perfect.

Oh my god.

Installing a new graphics card made the game reset all my options. For some reason, that included turning off script mods. It works...my game was just STUPID.

#197 Old 8th Apr 2015 at 1:57 AM
I'm sorry, but there is still a huge problem that makes this nearly useless. Any sim in the owned houshold can open a door, even if it's one person's room. There absolutely MUST be a way to lock specific Sims out.
