You get a birth certificate when your baby is born if you choose to follow your Sim to the hospital, which you can only do if you own Get to Work

I downloaded this recently but am still waiting a bit to play again after the patch. This is awesome, though! I guess I didn't realize until this mod that "properly" obtained Certificates have a generic name and description, too, since I've always cheated for mine since all of my hospital births in my game are the off-screen version (for personal and technical reasons), and I've had a couple home births so far, too.

I do have a suggestion already, though. Is there any way to make it so you can give a custom Description to it, as well. I'd like to do this so that instead of the generic Description, I can write the baby's name, the names of the parents, and the time and day of birth.

The way I do it is to put a bunch of spaces in between the info in the birth certificate description. It's trial and error for how many spaces to use since it depends on the length of the names, but eventually it does have three lines (ex. name, gender, parents) like in the mod picture.

So in the description box of the birth certificate I'll put "Name: Jane Doe _____[spaces]______ Gender: Female _____[spaces]______ Father: John Doe" and then play with the spacing until it comes up on three lines when you hover over the frame.

Just because it comes up on three lines in the description doesn't mean it will when you hover over the certificate, usually I have name and gender on the first line of the description box and parents on the second line for it to show up like the mod picture.

Sorry for the confusing explanation but I hope it makes sense!

I saw this and am butting in...: You get the birth certificate when you go have the baby at the hospital, and for that you need the Get to Work expansion pack. (And when you go to the hospital, click on the front desk assistant and click on them and then click 'check-in at the front desk'.) The certificate will be in your sim's inventory after birth.

If you're like me and prefer off-screen hospital births and/or home births (depending on your Sim's story), however, you can cheat for one by CTRL + Shift + C, then "bb.showhiddenobjects" (no quotes). Then search for "birth certificate" (no quotes) in the Buy/Build Search bar.

Anyway, does this need updated for the Freelancer Patch?

CORRECTION (04-25-2019): According to Chocolate on LittleMsSam's Discord, this mod still works fine! (I still have to try it for myself, though.)

UPDATE (04-28-2019 I finally updated and played for the first time since the original Freelancer patch. So far, so good! (I'll have to try customizing a certificate myself soon, though.)

Does this still work with the Island Living pre-patch?
