Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This hack includes animations that are useful for action scenes. Some of the animations were not included because they did not test well. This hack does not include animations from Pets or Seasons (which has some good action ones) because I didn't install them yet for fear of disrupting my AinD neighbhorhood and series. When I eventually install those, I will update this hack with those animations.

The hack is organized as follows and examples include (not exhaustive):
Arm action - beat with purse, punch you mean
Leg action objects - stomp on roaches, flamingo kick, flowers stomp
Obstacle course - logs, barbed wire, wall
Return or leave - superhero, abduction, social bunny
Reject - elevator woohoo
Fall - treadmill, electro dancesphere
Aspiration failure - breathe loop, crazy laugh, shake head
Yoga - toe tap, tap feet on head
Yoga transitions - flip to standing, one arm to two
Punching bag - breathe loop, jab, round house
Exercise loops - leg lift, ready, situp
Slip past - sidewalk shuffle, pastee polite
Other - arrest cuffer and cuffee, rotate 360, elixir fail, fightee doge

The hack should only require Nightlife. Please don't ask me to make a version without the Nightlife animations- you should be able to use it even if you don't have Nightlife and those animations just won't play. Hack may be found in Hobbies...Miscellaneous.

Please let me know how this works for you and if there are any issues.

This is awesome. It might make me get back to work on the next part of my series. But probably not. I got a procrastination problem. I get it from Brian. Thanks for the awesome mod. :D
