updates
2015-01-11 - Updated Commons. Affects Scribbling Pad, DouglasVeiga Dancer Servcer, Moar Interactions and Buy Takeout. If you use any of them, download the updated version, please.
2014-11-15 - The service now has a price (500§) and the dancers may use the club dance style. Also the dance skill gets maxed out when the service starts. I altered a couple of the strings, although the mod is still not localizable. The body shape of the dancers is now more in line with what you would expect from a dancer. Stuff made tunable.

compatibility
Supported for game version 1.67. This mod requires the Late Night and Generations expansion packs! If you don't have them, it won't even show up.

description
This is an updated and expanded version of DouglasVeiga's Dancer NPC mod with friendly permission of the orginal creator. The original mod isn't available anymore, so I can't link back to it.


usage
Just click on any stereo and choose the Call Dancer menu and choose the gender and outfit of the dancer. The dancer will arrive shortly after and, well, dance. The mod is currently only in English and not localizable, apart from the parts that use EAxian strings to begin with. I did however retro-fit it to utilize the tuning from the BachelorParty dancing service.

tuning
This mod is now tunable. The spotlight effect above the dancers' heads can be turned off via tuning (default on) and there is a certain chance for the dancers to use the club dance style (default 50%). There are tuning files available to raise the club dance chance to 100% and turn off the spot lights. USE ONLY ONE TUNING FILE!

Additionally the service price (default 500§) and details of the dancers' body shape can be tuned for each gender. The XML resource in the tuning packages if fully documented and the names should explain it too. If you want to alter the tuning and don't know how, please refer to the Tutorial:Sims_3_XML_Tuning_Moddingwiki tutorial.

The muscle definition and bust size values will have no effect unless twallan's MasterControllerCheats package is installed.

credits
Special thanks to DouglasVeiga for granting me permission to update this mod. Special thanks also to simb0t for providing me the original package of the mod.

possible conflicts
This is a scripting mod and as such the possibility for conflicts with other mods is next to nonexistant. Heads Up! If you check this mod in Delphy's Dashboard, it may show a conflict with my other mods. You can ignore that. It's by design, i.e. some of my mods share one framework resource. It will actually conflict in the sense that the game will only load one instance of that resource. That's the whole point, though.

installation
Please follow Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Fileswiki. I can't explain it any better than that. Seriously, I won't even try even if you ask me.

deinstallation
Make sure none of the interactions are running, save&close the game and rip the package out. Alternatively use twallan's ErrorTrap as everyone should probably do to begin with.

disclaimer
Might lead to a serious case of squished brain. Use for rocket fuel. Don't use for stomach ailment.

The tuning mod says 50% or 100% club dance style. I wonder what the other non club dance style is?

tomomi, the other dance style is that basic one you see when you let sims dance in front of a stereo.

Thanks for reply. One other thing to report is even after I installed the main file + the tuning file for Spot Off, the spot line is still visible as if there was no tuning file at all. I am using the latest patch as expected.

Is it just me that "Sims 3 Dashboard" says this mod and "Buy Takeout And Order Food At Restaurants " conflict with each other?
