Jogging Mod

Update 11/05/06
Fixed a problem that would affect those who have just the base game, where the jogging interaction would end soon after a sim changed into gym clothes. Also fixed a problem where if there isn't a mailbox on the lot, such as a dorm, the sim wouldn't be able to gain skill points. While the first fix is for people who only have the base game, the second fix affects everbody no matter what EPs you have or don't have.

Update 10/27/06:
Fixed a problem that would cause incompatibility with OFB, and also MATY's community skilling hack (OFB version). Thanks to Chyld for alerting me to this problem. Also if you have NL or greater the Smonaff_Jogging(AllowSkillBuilding).package file is no longer required, and in fact if you have OFB and have previously downloaded you need to remove this file from your downloads folder. I also turned down the skill gain rate a bit. Thanks to Citysim for pointing out that it was going to fast.

What it does:

Allows sims to leave the lot to jog.

How it works:

Just click on the active sim and select the jog option, then select how long to
jog (1 to 4 hours). The sim will then change into athletic wear, since there is no athletic wear for children they will remain dressed in their current outfit.
Next the sim will walk to the mailbox area, do a few stretches and then leave the lot to jog.

The effects of jogging are:
-increased hygiene and energy decay.
-Sims with an active personality will gain fun.
-Fitness level increases.
-Gain body skill points. Note: If you only have the base game or Uni this requires the Jogging(AllowSkillBulding) download.

Note: If the sims energy, hunger or bladder motive gets really low the sim will
return home before time is up.

The jog option is not available on community lots.
The jog option is available for all sims except toddlers and babies.

If you only have the base game or Uni you need to additionally download the Smonaff_Jogging(AllowSkillBuilding) file. Do not download this file if you have an EP other than the base game or Uni.

It should work regardless of what EPs you have, but since I have only tested it with Uni and NL installed I can't guarantee it will work if you have a different
installation. If your installation does differ from mine let me know whether it
works for you or not.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Any possibility of an add-on which allows your sims that go out jogging to randomly make a relationship with someone while they're out? (The longer they're out, the higher the chance.) The relationship starting at around 20 daily, 5 lifetime...

The statement below is true
The statement above is false

Can you add invite other sims/ family to jog together adding both relationship and body points. Or even bike out and would come home with bag of groceries. Or sims that go out and do Dj and bartending for some mullah.

Does anyone know if this works with AL? I know someone confirmed each of the other expansions already.

Could you download the Pre-NL if you have University, NL, Open For Buisness, and Pets?
