22 April 2017 : Minor BugFix (LookAtManager for involved Sims was temporarily disabled until another interaction re-enabled it)
Ehm... I just noticed that there was only 1 package in the zip file, the other one with the straw used as prop in the drinking animation was missing.
10th Jun 2015 : Tweaked a bit the cleaning interaction (see the autonomy section for details)

Mod Info
Developed and tested with game version 1.67.
This is a scripted object that represents a punch bowl.

What you need to know:
- you have to place it on a table (see OBJECT INFO to see where you can find the bowl)
- it works only for teens+
- you have to fill the bowl with punch for a price
- Sims can drink punch from the bowl with a straw
- the punch will spoil after some time
- cleaning (remove any left-over punch)

Extra Features:
- drinking spoiled punch will give Sims nausea
- while drinking, Sims can invite others to join (clicking on them)
- spiking the punch (drinking will make Sims juiced)
- refilling while there's still some punch will "remove the spiking"
- hovering with the mouse pointer on the object you'll get a tooltip with some info

There is some clipping with the animations. The pouring and spiking animations are meh.
I guess I screwed up the shadows and probably the meshing/texturing isn't state of the art.
I think I have excluded robots and plumbots from drinking. Let me know.
