This hack basically does the same thing as J.M. Pescado's manual-navigation hack, but specifically for the "Fly Here" interaction for Vampires. I wasn't sure if he would ever get around to updating it or even had plans to, so I figured it was easy enough to do and I wanted the same functionality in my game for vamps. Basically, it allows the user to have vamped sims "Fly Here" without it dropping out of the queue if you select other interactions to follow.

This MUST be in your Downloads folder, typically found under:

C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Downloads

Nightlife Only! Since Vampires only exist in Nightlife.

I have tested this in my game and it appears to work fine.

This hack is compatible with most, if not all mods by MATY crew (Pescado, TJ, and CBoy), dizzy, and probably more. Again, up to you to help me determine any possible conflicts.
This hack is compatible with J.M. Pescado's manual-navigation hack. It modifies a separate interaction, and therefore it should NOT conflict.

REMINDER and fine print (to cover my ass ) :
Remember to ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE INSTALLING NEW HACKS. By using this hack, you agree to absolve me of any responsibility or liability for any potential loss of or damage to your data. You have been warned.

HOW TO REPORT: Conflicts, problems, or errors
I would appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback that is actually helpful. With that in mind, it would be helpful, when reporting any conflicts or issues, that you include the following:

1) thorough but reasonably brief description of what you were doing
2) clear, comprehendible explanation of your problem
3) list of hacks that may be related to vamps flying
4) archived (.rar or .zip) of log produced by error

Posts which do not include a clear description of what your problem is will be pretty much ignored. (i.e. posts such as "This does not work! I am taking it out! You suck! Nice try! etc.") I can't and won't help you if you don't explain what's wrong.

Please be nice when trying to explain your problem and I might be nice and help you.

Finally, my Thank Yous go to:

J.M. Pescado, twojeffs, dizzy2, and jase439 for being excellent tutors and providing excellent models in their mods. As always, thanks to those creators who've put out some excellent modding tutorials, Quaxi and co for SimPE, and dizzy2 for disaSim2, and the finally letters T and S, and the number 2, all of whom, without which this mod would not be possible.

If I left anyone out, I apologize in advance. You know who you are and you deserve my thanks.

No pics to post this time as really this is something that needs to be seen/tested during "in game" play.

Since I can't thank you on MATY...

Thank you!

It's one of those things that drive me completely insane. I couldn't wait for it to be fixed.

Can you make a mod that allows the option to play vampires in bat form?

How is it "not working" for you? Can you describe your problem in detail (assuming you have a problem)?

I think that Pescado's latest version of manual navigation now includes this. So if you have his most recent version, you probably don't need mine.

Yes I Am Crazy but could you make a mod for vampires NOT to fly anymore? Thanks.

Also, could you replace it with teleporting or a super-fast run? Please!
