Compatible with 1.67

I've gotten some requests for this mod, so now here it is. It's a simple walk style changer, it works just like the old locomotion mods we had in TS2.

All styles from both base game and EP are available, provided you have the pack installed. Note that it's required to clear walk style before choosing another one.



Available in Decorative/Misc for free.


Compatibility: 1.38 and up.



KNOWN ISSUE
-Sometimes sims still use their default walkstyle when being directed to "Go Here". But if you direct them to do something that requires them to walk or if they go somewhere autonomously, they'd do the newly assigned walk style.
-Sometimes the walk style isn't cleared right away. If it happens, try clearing it again while the sim is walking.

Type:

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

Sims 3

If the Dex bear doesn't work either than it's very likely a framework issue, read the instructions in the overview and particularly try this tool by Delphy to check if you have everything installed correctly.

It's not working correctly for me! My Sim is stuck in "Crawl" mode. I can't clear the style, because it isn't working, and I can't replace it with any other walk styles no matter what I do. Help?

Did you clear the style before applying another? Usually that happens when I forget to do it. You have to clear the style each time before applying a new one. The game stacks the styles so if you apply a new style before clearing it, you'd have to clear it multiple times to get back to the default one. For example if you choose "Crawl >> Panic >> Swim >> Crawl" and you didn't clear it in between, you'll have to clear it 4 times Hope that makes sense, I'm sleepy.

Thanks! I love all your mods! Do you thought about it, to make a box of animations from the game for moviemarkers? That would be great. (sorry for my english ^^')

Thank you so much! It actually save many time by force the sims run

Although sometime i need to select again and again to change into new locomotion, overall is very nice

(if you don't count the horror of twisted adult in crawl, it's spooky!)

As i typing, the Overview tap of Delphy's tool still state it's not for WA, so i guess you must install both the framework and package manually in order to make any mod work

You're missing d3dx9_31.dll. If you don't feel like messing with it just use Delphy's framework installer tool. It'll do the job for you

ammiwo, have you put the dll into Game/Bin folder in Ambitions? I've just tested it, works fine here.
Test Subject

First of all, it's a real great mod!

Its not always working for me, sometimes i'm stuck with the ghost walking/mummy or another one... So I have to kill the sim, resurrect him with the scientific opportunity and then resurrect him in human, to be free of one of the type of walking.

Another thing, do you think you can add one more thing to the mod, to be able to go through things and wall like a ghost please?

By the way, it is maybe the game itself that is not stable, cause without your mod, i can be stuck in the sneak walk mod since the expansion ambitions has been added to the game...

Thanks you to share you'r mods with us, it is GREATLY appreciated!

It seems that this mod didn't work properly... I test it without other mods, and it seems that my sim, from time to time, is stuck with a walk mod...

Do you always clear walkstyle before applying another? It's very important
