Toddlers Extra Activities

14 June 2017 Update : BugFix: after some pondering I've decided to fix what I think was a bug
in the play on sand interaction (the official one, used even w/o the mod): a Sim could be user
directed to play on a sandcastle currently "used" by another Sim only to get routing failure.

DISCALIMER
This mod will only work if you believe in the power of friendship.
Uhm, my bad, I got this confused with My Little Pony.

Mod Info
Developed and tested on game version 1.67.

Mod Description

- New Terrain Interaction: Play on Puddle (was previously in Child2Toddler2Baby)
This is its right place. Download the updated version (19th April 2017 or a later version) of that mod or you'll have a double.


- Replaced PlayOnSand (Terrain.PlayOnSand and PlayOnSandJig.PlayOnSand) with a version that allows
toddlers too to play on terrain and sandbox.


- New Terrain Interaction: EatSnow (Seasons Required).


- New Objects Interaction: Dance (works on Stereo, BandInstrument, KaraokeMachine and JukeBox)


- New scripted object: a box of crayons. If in a toddler inventory, can be used to scribble on walls.


Tweaking
Each interaction can be disabled from the CONFIGURATION xml. Some of the features
are more or less tunable.

Compatibility


Final Note
The file is so big because there are a lot of textures. The number of animations doesn't help either.

It's such a delight to play Sims 3 lately because of new fantastic mods like this one! I'm very grateful, I missed some toddler activities from Sims 2 so much, like playing in puddle, or dancing while sitting on the floor - they were so cute, thank you for bringing more playful toddler behaviors back!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for these mods! The biggest thank you for the napping mat. It was the first item I missed from Sims2.
Did you know; the config for this mod has the config for child2toddler2baby in it?

They only have a few things in common, like debug interactions I use for testing purposes.

I'm having trouble getting my toddler to autonomously draw on the wall, although she is more than happy to do so once directed. I even put all the other toddler toys in the family Inventory, and she still wouldn't play with the crayons autonomously. But when she's directed, she draws better than I do!

If you mean that they don't autonomously "place the frame" on the wall that's intended behaviour.
Sims don't use the street art tag bag autonomously, do they? (I'm not sure if those kind of things
can be made autonomous... well, probably yes).

If you mean they they don't autonomously scribble on an already placed frame then that's not cool.

If you mean that they autonomously try to scribble on a wall only to get a notification - you don't have
crayons - then that's a bug that I've already fixed but I've not not yet uploaded the updated version.
But you most certainly didn't mean this last one.

Not feedback so much as a question: does this conflict at all with Cherry92's Toddler Interaction mod? I'd love to use both, to breathe even more life into the poor, neglected lifestage.

I wonder if the fact that the toddler will not autonomously scribble has anything to do with the fact that I don't have UNI? But she is definitely not autonomously using her crayons after the frame is placed.

Edit: Update
I removed all mods except the Transmogrifier, Icarusallsorts' bartending mod, (Because I had forgotten to disable those two mods before going to bed last night) assorted NRAAS mods, and this one. She still would not autonomously scribble on the wall. I would place the frame, she would go to the wall and draw half of a picture, then wander off. She would not complete her drawing until I told her to, even with nothing else to play with and several half-finished frames around the house.

The animation is that she goes to the wall, sits in front of it for about 2 seconds, and then the picture bit that she is drawing appears. If this is the animation that is supposed to run for the interaction, it's fine. If not, it might be a clue.

Nah, now that I've had time to check it I can tell you that the reason is much more simpler.

Unless the toddler has the Artistic trait there's no advertising to use the interaction.
But there might also have been an issue in the code.
I've already fixed it and I'll update the mod soon.

Question: can toddlers play in the sand (terrain or sandbox) - autonomously or not - while there's snow covering the ground?
What about puddles? If there's snow probably there can't be rain puddles, but what about regular puddles
(maybe created with NRaas Debug Enabler just to test this behaviour)?
I was reading the notes on icarus_allsorts' Autonomous Fun In The Sun and got worried.
EDIT: yep, they can, but I've fixed it. Not yet uploaded the new version though.

So far in my 100 baby challenge, it seems to be working. I had 4 toddlers draw on the wall. So far those 4 have not gone back autonomously.

Sorry if this isn't allowed; Can you make a daycare mod? Yes, I know Nraas has one but it never work for me. A mod where the Babies just disappear for awhile (like Sims4) and toddlers teleport to a rabbithole then crawl/walk in then after teleported home? Or work off the Nraas mod and allow community daycares with smarter sims. Thanks
