This Mod adds a new Social Activities Menu to Sims Phones.

There you’ll find several Social Activities you can send your Sims to. You can go alone or take Household Members with you to visit some Friends for example.

The following Social Activities are added so far:

  • Visit Friends
    This lets your Sims visit Friends of their own Age only. They will be gone between 120-180 Minutes. While they are away their Fun & Social Needs will fill up. If your Kids/Teens still have Homework to do (Including Extra Credits) they will do their Homework with their Friends. Visiting Friends will also build up Friendships!
  • Visit Family
    This will let your Sims be able to Visit Family Members of any Age who donโ€™t live in the same Household anymore. They can go alone or take other Household Members with them. Visiting Family Members will fill up Fun & Social Needs as well as Friendship.
  • Visit Acquaintances
    This lets your Sims visit Acquaintances (which also includes Family Members, Friends) of all Ages. They will be gone between 120-180 Minutes. While they are away their Fun & Social Needs will fill up.
  • Go on a Date
    This lets your Sims go on a Date. You can choose a Sim from your Household or other Households. They will be gone between 120-180 Minutes. While they are away their Fun, Social Needs & Hunger will fill up. Going on a Date will also build up Romance. Sometimes Sims will even have a Woohoo while they are away.
  • Send to Daycare
    This will let your Sims (Teen and above) send Toddlers to the Daycare. You can send them there for 2, 4 or 6 hrs. While Toddlers are away their Fun, Social Needs, Bladder & Hunger will fill up. They’ll also build up all 5 Skills while being away.

  1. AWSOME
    Like in Sims 3 when parents get opportunity to travel free vacation ๐Ÿ™‚

    What with translate? Do you want upgrade another language?

    1. Uhhh, this might be an idea. Something like Sleepover where Kids stay overnight with their friends… Or even sending Parents away for a weekend. Unfortunaly the Progress Bar get not saved properly. So it will always start new when you are in Loading Screen… hmm… I will put it on my To Do List to test this out…

      And yes to Translations ๐Ÿ˜‰ I changed the “Contact Me” Form, so you should be able to send me *.zip|*.rar Files now.

        1. Go on a Date gains romance….

          Go to Chess Club – Logic.
          Go to Cooking Course – Cooking/Baking
          Go to Yoga Course – Wellness
          Go to Debating Club – Charisma

          Gezzz so many possibilities so little time xD

          1. I admire you.
            Can see that you improve your modding skills. Each and every one is better ๐Ÿ™‚
            Soon, you will create your own game ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. I am having trouble getting this mod to show up. Aside from your mods, I am only using UI Cheats Extension and MC Command Center.

    Would either of those cause the new menu not to show up in the phone?

    You can just assume that I have all of your other gameplay mods installed. I pretty much have most of them!

    1. I figured it out! I think the folder structure for mods can only go so deep. This was nested under 2 other folders. Once I moved it out, it worked like a charm!

      This mod is awesome!

    1. Sure you can^^ You can use Sims4Studio or S4pe to translate the Strings and then send me the File via the Contact Form.

  3. I love this mod! Sometimes I just want some of other household sims to have some fun away without me needing to go with them too.. lol The “go on a date” option is used a lot in my game! XD
    I would love it if you would add more activities to this too (when you have time for it ofc and if you want to)!
    Maybe something like a sneaking out option for teens (I really miss doing this!) or something like go to the beach/park/mall or whatever.. just more stuff for other sims to do away! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I really wish I knew how to make my own mods. I really think I would have lots of fun playing with the rabbit hole functions! XD Maybe one day I will try to learn because you inspire me with all your amazing mods! Thank you! ^^

    1. I do plan to add some more to help Sims build up skills like go to the Cooking/Baking Course and so.

      You really should try it out to Mod. It is really Fun to make the Game like you want it to be. But be aware it is also a lot of work! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I want this mod SO BAD but for some reason I cannot seem to download it correctly ๐Ÿ™ what am I doing wrong? I downloaded it like I normally do with mods but its not present in my game.

    1. Could you extract the package & ts4script Files inside the Zip File after downloading? Also a Script Mod like this is only allowed one Folder deep inside your Mod Folder.

  5. i got it working!!!! i am a little new to downloading mods and wasn’t aware that i had to add the package AND ts4script file! thanks so much i’m so excited to try it out!

  6. oh my, you’re number 1 for me among modders, you makes such hard job with those mods and never expect money I feel so bad at times downloading and all I can give you is Thank You and Huge Respect

    1. “all I can give you is Thank You and Huge Respect” -> That means already so much to Modders ๐Ÿ˜‰ So thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Whew, another interesting gameplay addition which for some absurd reason EA didn’t implement as always. Thanks for the mod!

    By the way, something caught my attention when using this mod… The sim I’m currently playing is living with his girlfriend (just the two of them) and I wanted to have him visit his sister (they are blood-siblings and also best friends), so I picked “visit family” but the only sim in that category was his girlfriend who lives with him. The sister wasn’t even in the “visit friends” and was in the “visit acquaintances” instead…

    I also noticed that there were sims with empty relationship bars in both “acquaintances” and “friends” categories, as well as half-filled bars, meaning there are no differences between acquaintances and friends.

    Is it just my game or not?

    1. Checked the Family Relationship Filter and Sister/Brother is included and so far it worked in my Gameplay. So i’m not sure why it does not work in yours.

      The difference between Friends and Acquaintances is that Friends show only Sims of the same Age and min. Friendship Value of 5 (which looks also as empty) while Acquaintances are of any Age and only must “have met”.

      1. I can’t say why it does not work for some since it does work in my game. So i can’t really check for an issue which does not appear in my game.

  8. Hi, MsSam! I didn’t know where else to ask for it but, do you think you can, or have interest on making a mod were the sims can spend vacation on the ordinary word, without need to go to Granity Falls? Like deciding the amount of days they want to be free from work (Now you can only take ONE day off, and that’s very dumb.
    Thank you in advance for your attention!
    Whish you all the best!

    1. I remember when i made the School Holidays Mod that i already tried that back then. But i did not work. I will try again but i don’t know when i will have the time for it since there is some other Stuff i need to do first.

      1. Sorry about that, I was just asking why there was no moodlet flavor text after the (Sim did x). All I got was a bunch of jumbled up letters.

          1. I checked, it was all of the visit rabbit hole options. No big descriptions for any of them but I see that it’s a feature and not a bug so far so thanks for the info.

  9. Hi, is it possible to get babies and children even sent away to daycare too? It would really help for those days when they get school holidays and their parents can’t take off work. I really love this mod and would also like to know if you could add in some after school activities for the children to do? I think we discussed a bit through email but I hope there was a way for you to work that out. Thanks for all your hard work, my sims and I greatly appreciate it!

    1. If you don’t see the new Icon on your Phone (Smilie) and the Interactions then the Mod is probably not installed right or you have a Mod Conflict. You have to install the package & ts4script Files together in your Mod Folder but only one Folder deep. Also Script Mods must be enabled in the Game Options. If you did that, check if a Mod Conflict is going on.

      1. I see the smile icon, but I don’t see where it lets you go on a hike, concerts, circus. I only see the visit friends, acquaintances, and daycare icons.

        1. Did you download the Version from Oct 8th? If yes maybe something went wrong. Download again after deleting the old Version. And make sure to also delete the cache files “localthumbcache.package” etc). If it still does not work, check if you have a Mod Conflict going on.

  10. Yes!!! I love this. Please make it to where you can send your kids to spend the night(s) at a friends or family members house & be able to choose how many days. This would be perfect for co-parenting & spending time with grandparents. They can stay with their parents mon-fri, then on weekends you can send them to stay with their other parent or grandparent, or even a friend.

  11. First I would like I like to say that your mods are AMAZING! thank you so much for your commitment and energy.

    Iam sorry If you have answered this before, but i was looking and i wasn’t sure but is this compatible with yesterdays update? Im not entirely,

    1. 90% of my Mods needed an Update. As written on the Frontpage and on the Site all Updates were Pre Uploaded on Patreon for downloading for free for all. I will upload them here today.

    1. No, i updated it and it works fine in my Game so far as do all of my Mods. There might be some Bugs i need to fix when i discover them and i still need to add the new Objects but so far everything works fine.

  12. Hi, I just wanted to saw thank you so much for all your work on these mods!! I’ve never seen someone put so much thought into them ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I love this mod. Being able to send the toddler to daycare, woohoo. What would be the chance of sending a kid for a weekend with the non custodial parent or even to the grandparents?

    1. I don’t want to add more unless it would be really necessary because in the End it would be just different names with the same outcome (Skills etc.) and the List of Stuff that could be added like this would be endless.
      Never tried it but did you try to send Toddler on a Mini Vacation with their Grandparents for example?

  14. I sent my sim parents on a mini vacation, but when i leave the lot with others in the household and come back, the parents are back home.

    1. Yes that’s what i wrote in the Important Info Part “You can’t leave the Lot with the remaining Sims or the Sims will come back earlier.”

  15. Hi, will the sims autonomously leave to visit friends, family, etc.? If not, is there a way that can be added?

    Thanks, I love your mods!

  16. I love this. My mini-issue is — scenario — I sent my sim parents to work. I then tried to send a teen, a child, and a toddler to the circus, I felt it would be bad form to send just the child and the toddler. But the toddler ended up going to daycare instead! I’m assuming that’s because the teen left for the rabbithole first? This happened again when I tried to send the teen and toddler on a hike so I could play the child on a park lot with friends. Is there any real way to assure that the toddler goes on the social trip instead of being left behind? (daycare works fine–but I’m assuming that’s primarily because only toddlers go to daycare and an adult is still on the lot)

    1. Toddler can not stay at Home alone. Rabbitholes are not real Places they go. They are just invisible. As stated in the Description you cannot leave the Lot.

    1. IMPORTANT – I was adding a mod that helps you control cats and dogs. The modder says the new patch makes it to where ts4 scripts will no longer run in subset folders. So I put their mod and yours in the main mod folder. I hate my mods being disorganized but it worked for both so now all is good. Wanted to tell you so you can put this in the description.

      1. Hi Brett,

        i don’t know why the Modder of the Pet Mod said that but it is not true. I have all of my own Mods inside a Sub Folder and they work perfectly fine. The Social Activities Mod also. All Mods i use MCC, WW and all of my own Script Mods have no Problems being in a Sub Folder.

        Maybe that just happens if you have the Pet Mod installed but idk i don’t use it.

  17. I noticed a minor grammatical issue with this mod in the English version. “Read and Meet Book Group” shows up on the phone as “Go to the Read and Meet Book Group.”

    Even without that, “Read and Meet Book Group” still doesn’t make much sense grammatically. May I suggest changing it to “Meet with Book Group…” or “Go to Book Group…”
