Very true. I absolutely agree that the lazy ones often need it the most. But they are also the least likely to like it. That's how they get fat in the first place They need to be told, because they wouldn't do it voluntarily. So it still makes sense to me to have this mod, so the lazy ones get fat if you don't keep an eye on them. Yeah, I'm an @$$ that way :D

I liked jump rope until playing apartments forced me to deny it autonomously to my sims. You ruined it for everyone, apartment neighbours who did nothing else but stand outside and do it all day long!

Jump rope doesn't make them fit unless you have mod what fix it.

Actually it does, it just takes a long time. I had a sim get fit solely from jumping rope long before I got any mods in.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone jumping rope at an apartment. Put something for them to do in the common area, and I bet you won't, either.

I like apartments, but I wish the coding was more stable. I always have to move the family when glitches accumulate to critical mass. They can be great fun, though, especially for families, and are an interesting challenge to build in order to reduce glitchiness and annoyances.

I find the idea of apartments appealing, and had some fun playing - but I stopped solely because of the glitching. So, sorry, Sims, but in Houses you will stay

Thinking of starting a simblr or a LJ or something - recommendations, anyone?

I'd like apartments more if they were more neighborhood accessible-for other apartments and other residential lots. I rarely play them because of those two problems.

Of course I could just set one to be residential and have lockable doors, but that becomes expensive, and other problems pop up.

Not good coding at all for that EP.

What... How could you not like apartments? For, without them, you can have no 'Apartment Hallway Smustle'!

What, you don't like to do the Timewarp?

(Kids these days are calling a version of it the skyrim shuffle. Gave me a chance to embarrass my kids. *grin* Seems to be one of those things that recurs every so many years, that dance.)

JustPetro, seems like most folks are using tumblr these days. But there are some big pet peeves with tumblr, too. Poke around and see what people say about 'replies' before you commit. If people like what you write, they will track you down and bookmark you no matter where you are.

While the notorious smustle can in some situations be funny it is for the most part an annoying interruption. I may just make it illegal to smustle in my game. Is there a mod to prevent this. (Oh, and, I simply cannot play Sims 2 with out many of your mods! Thank You!!)

It's the reactions of the other sims that amuse me rather than the smustle itself- the paper girl stood there for half the morning waiting to reach the door!

I adore the smustle. Not only because it's a funny dance (especially when one of the sims doing it falls out of rhytm with the others), but also because in the family I play, everyone does the smustle I've got several pics of them doing it together, and every time I see a picture of members of that family doing the smustle I think "Yup, that's the Neighbours alright" (What I was thinking when I was 14 and named the founding sim Neighbour remains a mystery. Espcially since it's both his first and last name.)

Ah, one has to do the time warp at least once - preferably on a table, with a ghost from the Rocky Horror Show cast teaching you how to do it properly (while they are fixing the technical problem on stage )

You should totally check out BO - Smustle Limited!!! It has three great pros:
  • It is made by someone who made many mods that you cannot do without ( ).
  • It seriously limits the smustle to downtownies and sims on downtown lots.
  • If you combine it with BO - Music & Dance Fixes sims can only autonomously smustle if there is music playing.

I have to admit to starting Smustle mobs for my own amusement. Mostly I did this in dorms, when I was playing just one or two sims. I would get the dance going, then send my sim off to class or other college work and just watch how long it would go. At least once it lasted all day until the dormies were forced to retreat to their rooms in the late night hours.

That's brilliant, and "Smustle mobs" might be the best word I've heard today.

Thank you! Downloaded. Setting limits makes sense. When playing a household lot the autonomous smustle can seriously interrupt getting more important things done. ( BTW I am PattyHeart at Leefish )

At my first Uni sports party everyone just smustled in the bathroom. Good times.

Anyway, has anyone thought of theme/character songs for the premade characters? I heard Ex's And Oh's on the radio today and it seriously reminds me of Olive Specter (except her exes are literally ghosts, of course)

You've seen videos of FLASH mobs breaking into song or dance or both? Can you picture a SMUSTLE flash mob! Somebody has to do that! I can't even figure out if the moves are humanly possible!

I didn't realise that the smustle was a dance that only Sims did. I'll have to see if my Sims can teach me the steps.
