STILL WORKS AS OF PATCH (September 2022 Update)

- 1.0: Initial release of the mod.
- 1.1: You can now change non-active sim's walk style.
- 1.2: Changed the walk style to have higher priority. Now, occult sims like ghost and grim reaper can have their walk style replaced with this mod.
- 1.3: The mod doesn't depend on XML Injector anymore since it has its own script mod now. Added French translation by PetiteCeriseSims, Brazilian Portuguese translation by -SANTi-, Spanish translation by Rocco182, and Chinese translation by mumulinovo

Are you looking for a different walk style for your sim that you normally can't use before? Are you a videomaker or storyteller wanting your sim to use specific walk styles that you can't access normally? Or do you want your sim to just run everywhere they go, thereby increasing time efficiency? If those are the case, then this mod is for you!

This mod adds in a new interaction for your sim called "Change Walk Style". With this, you can have your sim use almost all types of walk styles available in the game. They consist of not only normal walk styles that you usually pick from Create-A-Sim (peppy, tough, swagger, etc.), but also emotional (angry walk, sad walk), situational (celebrity walk, panic run, "has to pee" walk), and special walk styles (vampire sneak, ghost float, servo walk). This interaction is available for all ages except for toddlers (for now).
Once your sim's walkstyle is set, it'll stay permanently until you reset it even if you exit the lot or the game. To reset your current walk style back to your sim's original walkstyle, use the "Reset Walk Style" interaction.

Some walk styles require you to have certain packs. If you do not have the pack but use it anyway, nothing will happen. There are tool tips on walk styles that need certain packs so you'll be informed in-game.
Besides adults, children also have this interaction, but they don't have as many walk style options as adults.

- You can now change non-active sims walk style. Want your neighbor to walk like a moody teenager forever? Go ahead!
- Occult with changed walk style such as ghost and grim reaper will now have their walk style replaced if you use this mod on them.
- This mod doesn't depend on XML Injector mod anymore so you can use the mod without it.

- The walk style won't initiate if the sim travels less than 8 tiles.

    - Walk (Slow, normal, fast)
    - Jog
    - Run (normal, slow)

    - Create-A-Sim walks (feminine, goofy, perky, creepy, tough, swagger, snooty)
    - Panic run
    - Pregnant walk
    - Has to pee walk
    - Wade

None so far, but feel free to let me know if there's one.

So I’d love an update.

Ahh I think I know what's wrong. I'll try to take a look at it and probably put an update once it's fixed. For now, you can temporarily use the "reset walkstyle" interaction whenever your sim is going to swim so the mod won't interfere with it.

Can you put this menu under "actions"? I have so many mods, so the interactions become polluted

wow! I can't thank you enough for this mod! Helps me add to my stories. I use in combo with no emotional walks mod so I choose when I want them to walk a certain way. I'm suppppppper happy my sims can now skate ANYWHERE! and I can choose between the different styles of skating. I downloaded some cc skates, sent the family on a hike in mount komorebi and they had a blast skating!!! I hated being confined to that little skating rink so I rarely ever used. Now my sims are skating so much they have forgotten how to walk lol >,< thank you so much!!!

If you download MTS_cLineLy_InteractionSorter you can use a computer to hide certain interactions under a Shift+click

Would you be able to move this interaction to Shift click or under Actions as my menu is very cluttered

Does anyone with this mod notice they have random townies being generated with the grim reaper walk effects? I keep having this happen and this is the only mod I can imagine doing this..
