Changelog
Update: 11/14/2017
  • Walk version updated for an issue with the Cats & Dogs expansion.

Update: 11/10/2017
  • Walk version updated for game version 1.36.102 (Nov 9 patch). No update needed for run version.

Description
By default, venue visitors in TS4 spawn at a point right outside of the venue. This mod forces them to spawn at a random "world spawn point" instead (i.e. the same spawn points jogger and other passers in the neighborhood use.)

For example, here's a comparison between default and this mod.



Without this mod, visitors spawn right outside of the venue. They tend to stand still, play various idle animations (such as acting very flirty or very uncomfortable), or even do something inappropriate (such as using phones or doing push-ups) before actually entering the venue.

If you have a mod that increases the number of Sims in venues, a large crowd of Sims could stand at this point, which is very immersion-breaking.



With this mod, Sims will now walk to the venue from various spawn points in the neighborhood. When they leave, they will also walk to one of these "world spawn points," as opposed to disappearing right in front of the venue.

This also means more Sims will be walking on the sidewalk, which makes neighborhoods more lively.

Note: Only regular venue visitors are affected by this mod. The Sims you control/traveled with, venue employees, Get Together club members, etc. are not affected by this mod and they will still spawn in front of venues.

Flavors
Two different flavors of the mod are available.

Run version: if Sims are spawned at a point very far from the venue, they will run to the lot. They will get there quicker, but you may find it immersion-breaking.

Walk version: Sims will walk to the venue. It will take them longer to arrive at the lot, but they will blend in better with the rest of passers in the neighborhood. If you plan to use this flavor, I recommend using my other mod Faster Sim Spawning. Mods that increase the number of Sims in venues and/or make Sims staying in venues longer are also recommended.

Note: in certain venue types (such as cafes), Sims will always walk regardless of which version you use, as Maxis specifically disabled them from running.

Installation
To install, unzip the file and place the .ts4script file in your mods folder.
Script mods need to be enabled for it to work.

Conflicts
This mod modifies the following functions and will conflict with other mods that also modify these functions.

zone.Zone._get_spawn_points_with_lot_id_and_tags
routing.walkstyle.walkstyle_behavior.WalksStyleBehavior.apply_walkstyle_to_path
