Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Dance Rug allows you to dance with 4 different interactions:
- Dance - HipHop
- Dance - Travolta
- Dance - Techno
- Just Dance!



Those 4 interactions features custom animations. Just Dance randomize which dance style your Sims will do and also has a specific dance animation as well!
Dancing also increases the fun of your sims.


This is a simple package and is installed like every package file. It does not require any EP and should be compatible with every game. This should not conflict with any other mods including my Yoga Rug
It was done under the 1.27 patch.

The object is based on RugTraditionalSquare4x4, and you can find it in the Rug section, under "Dance Rug", for 100S$.

Note that I am NOT the animator of this, as this was made using Motion Captures (filming someone dancing).
The animation are distributed by Carnegie-Mellon motion capture dataset (learn more here), free of copyright and charge.
Thanks to MorososAp for the Techno dance, who kindly accepted to let us use his work, and mocapdata.com/ for certain animation.

Most of the converting process was done by the MTS member Umpa, for my part, I scripted and reworked the animation files.

I hope you enjoy, and please, leave a comment on this bellow!

Thanks for making this. I hope you'd write a little tutorial on how the animations were done. Works with patch 1.31.

Omigosh! My year is made. I was JUST looking into Umpa's stuff recently, and this mod is the answer to my prayers, I can't wait to give it a try. Thank you so much for this!

Wow, it really works good. Very nice little object.
Is there a way to make sims autonomously use it if it's placed down?
Thanks!

This is absolutely great! I too, have been watching Umpa's animation work and trying to figure out how to incorporate it into my game. This is a dream. Thanks for tackling and sharing this difficult, but potentially really fun, bit of content. Now, onto the dancing!!

Fantastic, so great to see some new animations for the game (I love your Yoga Rug, too). The one dance that came with TS3 gets so boring, so it's nice to give them some new moves (and bring back the TS2 Smustle, I say - hint hint)! Looking forward to trying this out, thank you!

EDIT: Finally had a chance to try this out in-game, love it! The Travolta dance is hilarious!

Can you develop your issue Dj94? I really cannot help you if you don't tell me more. did you manage to install it properly? Do you have other mods? What sims 3 patch are you playing with?

For making that in the dancefloor I don't know. I wanted to make this compatible with everybody, even with no EP, and I think that the dancefloor comes with LN?

You are amazing! I love the yoga rug and I love this one too! I have an 80's song , Venus, in my custom channel on the radio and the Travolta moves look so awesome with that song! I even used NRas and got two Sims dancing at once..it was so funny! This would be great if it was autonomous and we could get a whole party or club dancing. Hope to see more from you. You make the best Mods ever!
