This mod fixes certain issues with the MP3 player from the University EP.

- There is a serious glitch that sometimes causes MP3 players to disappear from a household sim's inventory and end up in the inventory of another household sim. This is caused by a Maxis oversight that allows sims to initiate the Listen to MP3 interaction on an MP3 player that another sim is already listening to. This should never be allowed. This mod fixes this issue. You should never see MP3 players disappearing from inventories again. Note that this glitch only affects the MP3 player. The handheld gaming device is properly coded and does not suffer from this glitch.
- The game prevents visitors from listening to their own MP3 players, which is another oversight. Visitors can listen to their MP3 players now.
- Listening to an MP3 player can only increase a sim's Fun motive up to 75, but Maxis forgot to add checks to make sims less likely to listen to their MP3 player if their fun motive is already around 75 or higher. These checks should always be added to make looping behaviour less likely (listening and then stopping, and then listening again). Looping behaviour is still possible with these checks, there is nothing that can easily stop this, as almost all Maxis interactions suffer from this. One can modify all affected interactions individually and add a minimum required loop count, but this has nothing to do with this mod.

You need the latest version of 7zip or Winrar.

Requirements: I think you will need Pets or a higher EP.
