Updates
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







ISSUES
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.

It'd be cool if there was a plasma version of this for vampire sims!

I can't get it to work either. I try to place it and it just shows red and I can't release it onto anything. I have not had something like this happen.

I think the punch bowl can only be placed on a dining table. :-)

I cannot place this punch bowl in my game - it shows up a sort of translucent red and refuses to try to be lifted onto another surface. I have tried a number of different tables - including a dining table that looks like the one in the picture.

I am able to place the punch bowl on a dining table but I believe this is because I have the NRaas ErrorTrap mod installed. A script error is generated by this mod when the bowl is placed, indicating that something is amiss with the object. The Punch Bowl still works for me though, despite the error.
