Meet the orphans
that will appear when you place their pictures on
a lot. You can create an old town ophanage lot for
them and visit them when you go to old town. Then
you'll be able to adopt your very own orphan. At
this time, they are random using skins you have
in your game already. No more sleepless nights
taking care of a baby when you want to increase
your family. The orphans are fully interactible
and their photos can be hung at home letting them
appear when your sim is lonely. If you are
using hacked social globals that allow it, you will
even be able to ask them to move in and they will
become family members.
Each zip contains the child's
photo, character file, and skins. Place the two
iff files in your downloads folder and then unzip the
skins to your skins folder.
Note: It is probably best to
store the iff files in a folder that you will not mark
as read only. So if you are in the habit of marking
your entire downloads folder as read only, it may be
best to put these files in your game data/ user objects
folder or vice versa.
When you hang the picture on
the wall the child will appear near the picture once
you go into live mode. Please make sure to keep the
space in front of each child's photo free of furniture,
or they may not appear. The photos keep the children
as temporary members of the family as long as their
picture is on the lot. If you want them to leave you
can sell their picture. Eventually the child will then
leave, or you can say good bye.
Youll also need their body
skins. Click the picture to download the uniforms.

Creating an orphanage
The orphans are normal sims
with needs. You will need to provide fun things for
them to do, and supply a food souce that will work in
old town. I suggest the barbeque. Also provide
beds and showers or tubs of course. They don't
need to be visitor enabled but they do need to be categorized
for old town. Don't forget to hang their pictures
in the room in which you want them to appear! You
could put them in the bedroom or playroom.
Here's how you can make your
orphanage lot practical.
I have created two fake sims
that you can place in a chair in front of a computer
or some books that will go on a desk. Then you can click
on the sim's head and choose to either adopt a girl
or a boy. The new child will appear near the fake sim,
so leave plenty of room around the desk, as the child
will most likely appear behind the desk. Please place
the fake sim in an uncomfortable chair and give your real
sims plenty of higher comfort chairs to sit in in case
they get sore feet while visiting the orphanage. :)
Otherwise, they may decide to sit right on top of the
fake sim! It looks really odd. LOL
and Amy our orphange director and helper. You can click
on their heads and ask to adopt a boy or a girl. In
the in game picture above you can see the sort of set
up you may want to create for your orphanage.
I hope to create npcs to replace
the fake sims for those that would prefer that soon.
However with 6 child npc's already you may want
to stick to the fake sims if you want to see other sims
visiting your orphanage. Also you don't need to use
all the orphans. You can hang only as many
pictures as you want children to appear.
Using these objects without
You can create an orphanage right at home if you
like or you can simply place Lester or Amy on your lot temporarily
in order to adopt a new child.
You can create an orphange downtown
but you won't be able to adopt children there and bring them home.
You need to have your whole family with you in order to adopt a
child on a non residential lot. You may be able to create
an orphanage in Magic town and adopt a child there as long as you
take a balloon ride to get there so that the whole family visits.
I haven't tested in Magic Town.
Object and skin creators: Would
you like to make a new set of orphans and objects for an orphanage?
These orphans can be modified like any other npc object. You will
need to make new photos and attach the new npc children to them
like you would any other npc object.
Original sim users should
not try to adopt children if the family already contains 8 members.
Your game will most likely crash to the desktop if you try this
in original sims. If you have a higher expansion pack it should
be safe, but you must move enough sims out so that your family
is again no more than 8 members before you evict them. You
can use the move plant from Simlogical
to do this.
