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) Pre-NL.zip 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.

How does the gain in fitness for jogging compare to other fitness equipment etc? Is it roughly the same as working out to tv/stereo? Or is it about the same rate as the treadmill?

Wonderful! I've always thought it was a bit silly that you couldn't just have your sim jog to up fitness and body. Used to wish you could set up a jogging track at the park or something. This is great!

Not necessarily on the same page, but what is the habits/bad habits dealie you've got there? It seems pretty interesting, as we all have our vices. I searched and found something on here, but since it's older I guess, it's not available for download, nor is there a description.

Habits was created by cathair2005 and contains a fart and belch option as you might have guessed, you can download it here .

Period is from the Period Hack by me.

Bad Habits is also by me, but not finished yet, and is like cathair's hack, but with more options like pick nose, pick ear, scratch armpit, etc... Also cathair's doesn't work for children, where mine does.

Great idea! Thanks for this.

I noticed a conflict with MATY's comm-skilling package with the Hack Conflict Detection Utility - something to do with 'Sub - Continue Loop?'. Do you know if this is a problem?
