Re encoded the audio for the limbo music. A safety measure to prevent potential game crashes.

Mod Info & Requirements

Game version 1.67 (might work with other patch levels, beats me)

Requires Showtime EP (only because the mesh I've used comes from there, a re-mesh will eliminate this requirement.

Description

You place the limbo stick, you click on it to activate it (a classic limbo music starts) and then
click again with a teen+ Sim to use it. I've used the same system of the slippy slide, so Sims
will form a queue and take turns to use the object. The interaction is strongly advertised (since
the object can be used only when activated), so Sims wil definitely use it autonomously but only
a certain number of Sim can do it (xml tunable).

Clicking on other Sims you can ask them to join you.

If "dancing" with other Sims, in addition to Fun, Sims will also increase the Social motive.

Oh, how nostalgic!
I remember there being a Limbo bar in TS2, if I remember, it was Pescado that shared it from TS2:Castaway. Could this mesh be used for a new limbo bar?

Thanks for this!

Yes. I remember the limbo bar from Castaway. I'll try to convert it to use with Arsil's mod!

These individual items are really cool...but they make me wonder what you could do if you worked on one big project instead of a dozen small ones.

Thanks Arsil for making another amazing mod! You RULE (said with RF's voice and hand gestures)!!!

WIP

So far, so good. I managed to modify the mesh enough so it'll fit your requirements, Arsil. You'll see that the object is quite tall but that's the absolute minimum height it can have so that Sims' noses won't clip through the stick. And I HATE clipping. You'll also notice that I made it a little bit wider. It looked really bad when I tried to make it the same width as the chin up bar.

I still need to work on the ground shadows (all I have to do it from scratch) and textures (I want to make it CAStable).
But I really happy with what I did in just one hour.

PS: Arsil: If you want I can create a different joint for the stick and maybe you can make it disappear when they fail (so at least people will know the Sims has failed, and it's not a glitch with the animation).

Hey, can you also remake Arsil's Bag of Chips. I asked Sandy, but it's been almost a year since then

If you want a big mod project, why don't you get started on one yourself and see if other Simmers want to contribute. There have been lots of big projects started here on this site.

I quite like these little mods that address a random sort of "nice to haves" that we've never gotten in the game. It's the little things that add so much especially after playing the game for so many years.

Oh, so fun, thank you, Arsil!!!! <3

@martlet, oops, sorry! I get easily sidetracked, and I completely forgot that you asked about it! *blushing of shame* I'm still thinking to use my pictures for it someday, though. Maybe even before next year! ;D
