Updated: 4th Aug 2015 at 10:46 PM - Updated Version
4th Aug 2015 - Added a new setting (enabled by default) called strictTending: the masseur will wait next to the table
without wandering and doing other stuff, this way when Sims ask for a massage they should get it right away.

Mod Info
Developed and tested with game version 1.67.
This mod requires the "Infinite Zen Massage Table" store item.
This is NOT a default replacement of that object, it adds a professional
version of the table, so you can keep using the regular table too.

Object details
The object referes directly to the mesh of the default massage table.
Where : BuildCatalog/Community/Misc. Price 0. Only available in community lots.

Mod Description
A professional massage table that creates a masseur/masseuse role.
Sims can only receive a massage and only from the role covering Sim.

ISSUES (unrelated to the mod itself, they happen also with the regular massage table)
Sometimes after selecting the interaction the massaging won't start. It's also a bit confusing that
the massaging interaction is only added to the interaction queue of the masseur so the receiving
Sim won't have the confirmation until the massage starts. This means that if in the meantime the
Sim who asked for a massage is busy the massage might not happen (because the synchronization
timer expires or for another more subtle reason). Not that I've focused much on this problem and
addressing it wasn't the main purpose of the mod, but so far I couldn't improve that.
EDIT: I think I've improved that a bit, making the masseur drop whatever he is doing to do the massage.

Sims, both masseur/masseuse and the one receiving the massage, are reset if you save the game
during a massage and then reload that game. I think I've pinpointed the cause of the problem
(see this comment if you are interested in the technical explanation) but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Other Info
I suggest to not put both the regular massage table and the professional massage table
in the same lot, otherwise a masseur/masseuse might ask someone else to give them a
massage and that would be very unprofessional.

Sorry for using cross references, but check the notes on my previous similar mod
(Custom Generic Role) about these topics: the outfit to use while covering the role,
motives freezing, using a selectable Sim for the role, role breaking situations, etc.

(xml tunable) Sims won't autonomously request a massage if they have the Relaxed moodlet
(given by one of the massages itself and, at least, also by a spa Rabbit Hole massage) or another
one of the specific moodlets gained with a specific massage, to avoid that they request a massage
after another again and again.
