Teen Vacation Mod with Tents Enabled

After some on the forums said that while using Squinge's original teen vacation mod for Bon Voyage, which allows teens to go on vacation by themselves, without an adult, that the teens couldn't check in at campgrounds, I decided to look into it. Turned out that while he had set it up for hotel use (which it works fine with), that the tents and all things needed for teens to go on vacation at a campground weren't included.

So I included the resources needed for them to do so.

His original mod, found here: http://www.insimenator.org/index.php?topic=93443.0 conflicts with it of course.

The resources included in it that were originally there, and could conflict with other things are:

CT - Book Vacation TEST Group number 0x7FC92A9D
ConciergoSum Desk TTAB Group number 0x7F173A97
ConciergoSum Desk TTAB Group number 0x7FA5C415
CT - Switch Location TEST Group number 0x7FC92A9D

Mine that could conflict with other things are:

untitled tree table TTAB (tent pie menu) 0x7FCBB499
Interaction - Vacation - Go Home - TEST 0x7FA1D352
Phone Boot Interactions TTAB (community phone booth vacation options) Group number 0x7FA1D352

This IS a global mod, so could conflict with things that I am not aware of, but all resources are listed so you can doublecheck if necessary.

I have also added a tutorial written in wordpad so that if you want to use a custom tent, you can alter the pie menu on it so that it will work with this mod.





Additional Credits:
A big thank you to Jo, Maxon, Jules, and Gummi who all tested this for me. And anyone else I may have forgotten.

And another thank you to Jo for the pictures.

This has been tested in a Bon Voyage any game starter game, so it works in just Bon Voyage as well as a full game set up.

A thank you to Squinge for the original mod mine is based on
