2016 May 18 Update: now the "stage dancer" can't be socialized while dancing,
so Sims won't waste time queueing interactions (see technical info for details).


Intro
Hi, I'm Arsil and I'm very funny. But this time I'll try to be serious. I'd say I'll be very technical. Yeah.

This is an updated version of a mod that doesn't work properly anymore. It is called: "exoticDancersStage".
It was part of a collection of mods called "Downtown Roles" by Misukisu, you can find the original mod HERE.
All credits stay to the original author (see his/her policy and please credit him/her if you use this), I did very
little, just recompiled the sourcecode and made a few fixes while I was there.

Mod Description
Developed and tested with game version 1.67.
This mod requires the "Late Night" EP (for the dancing animations).

This is a scripted object you'll find in the Buy Catalog, in the hobby category (see screenshot #2).
You place it in a community lot (it's very small, pay attention where you place it), presumably in a
disco* kind of venue, tune it with the "Tuning Dialogs..." interaction - you can do that also when
in Buy or Build Mode ctrl+shift clicking on it, indeed the original author suggests to tune it while in
that mode (see below why) - and a sim will fill the role (or you can set that using NRaas Register).
What role? A dancer, or exotic dancer if you tune it to use the "naked outfit". This dancer role was
made using the pianist role as model, keep that in mind because you may see messages from the
game stating that a pianist role is vacant.

Performing
But let's go back to talk about the tuning. Clicking on the little tag you can:
- Choose the outfits used during the dancing (if you choose Naked you'll get an "exotic" dancer).
- Choose the starting hours of the shows (the dancing) and how much any single performance last*

*sims show up "at work" half an hour before the hour specified for the first show and they
usually start dancing way after the specified hour (something like half an hour or more);
You can specify multiple performances using the correct syntax (eg 19H21H or 19H21H23H01H,
always end the string with an "H")

If you change the tuning of the dancersStage when in Live mode, there's the chance that the
new settings wont work until the next day. The original author suggest to make the tuning while
in Buy or Build mode to avoid that. I haven't verified if that is true and I've not bothered trying
to fix it because doesn't seem very urgent. Maybe one day I will (but most likely I wont).

There's also a debugger that you can start/stop using a debug interaction (or while you are in
Buy/Build mode).

These professional dancers will dance even without music. They are committed, aren't they?

Watch the show
Sims can dance around the professional dancers (if there's music) or can just watch them.
There's a XML resource in the package (the only one with a name) that edited with S3PE let
you tune a bit the behaviour of the "watchers", you can set:
- the chance to stop watching a dancer (or they will watch them until they are done). Default is 20%.
- the distance from which watch a dancer.
- how much time passes between "watching reactions".

If you click on the stage's tag while its related dancer is not dancing, you can request an extra
show that will start immediately (of course, only if the dancer is "on duty"),

There's a warning about the presence of adult contents on that site but, seriously, there's nothing bad there.
