Picked upload! No Foot Tapping While Waiting For Clear Route!

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Don't strike a pose- Don't tap ya foot.
Just wait ya turn and it'll all be good!


So I killed the tantrum animation in a previous post, now it's time to kill off that foot tapping and sour-puss face expression too!

After installing this I was quite surprised to see that the game _almost_ seems quicker when not calculating that animation.. they just stand there and/or figure out another route quickly so we don't have to look like a bunch of Old Navy mannequins striking weird poses

I have experienced no conflicts with my huge pile of other installed mods. This is just killing the call for all cases of 'x:ScriptPosture' in both 'wait_ping' and 'wait_pong' of the 'standandwait' script in Jazzdata.package.

Install this like any of your other config mods: drop in the "Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages" folder.

2-24-2010 Yes, it's compatible!
Sims 3 + World Adventures + High End Loft Stuff + all patches as of 2010-02-24 are compatible with this mod.

Additional Credits:
Continued credit to EsmeraldaF for her "No more 'Handy sim' wrench-tossing animations" (http://www.modthesims.info/d/365920), which gave me the jazz direction to start looking for things to de-animate
And of course, TigerM for the "Smooth Jazz animation script editor" (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=365465), which allowed for the quick and painless search/destroy of this animation.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Tried this out in my game. And wow, you are right about the game seeming faster. Without the toe-tapping my sims just wait their turn, when before they would even continue to toe-tap when the way was finally clear. Now I can call everyone to a meal, and it does'nt take almost a sim hour for everyone to get their plates! Thankies.

I downloaded this and then realized I had already made it so sims could walk right through each other in my game. So I guess I don't need this mod. But thanks anyway!

Thank you sooooooo much! I got so tired of this animation--I mean, it's not like the other Sims are getting in the way on purpose! And it's especially annoying when they both start doing it so neither one is moving out of way and they both just stand there, tapping their feet....UGH.

I'm so tired of having three sims at a time tapping their foot when waiting to go past someone.

Unfornuately this mod (or the tantrum one, I use both) has bad side effects. Sims, when the path is blocked, will freeze in ther currect position (for example in the walking animation) instead of just standing there idle and wait.

I hope, you can fix this.

Just wanted to say that I use this mod together with my own 'No Stupid Idle Faces' and 'No Wrench-Tossing' mods plus TigerM's 'Sim Cough Drop', and have had no problems using them all together. However, I DON'T use this creator's 'No Tantrums' mod, so it may be that one that causes the problem, not this one, OR it may be that using them BOTH at the same time causes the problem, as they're both to do with route fail - maybe you have to use one or the other. Hope this helps!

Heya, I'll check into this just as soon as I get back from holiday next week. But to be sure, I haven't had any errors like that one mentioned above.. I'm using my No Tantrum and No Foot Tapping plus no Wrench Tossing and the Cough Drop as well..

I'm not sure that my two mods should conflict since they're each calling different animations in two different scripts, tho from the same event. The code flow wouldn't be interrupted when the game triggers a route fail or route bottleneck.. so am not sure what is getting buggered up here.

If possible, please list all the mods you're currently using so I can try them too and see what could be causing the error you're seeing.

I'm trying to reinstall this mod after my computer crashed and I have to install everything again, but when I try to double click this file, using the monkey, it say's access denied. I'm logged on as the administor so I don't understand what the problem might be. Anyone who knows?

Did you grab the right version of Monkey? I seem to remember there being 2 versions- one for vista with UAC on and one for UAC off (UAC can be killed in Control Panel>User Accounts>Turn User Account Control On or Off>restart

Thank you! Yes, that's exactly what I did wrong, I didn't install the UAC one. I didn't even read about this because I thought I knew how it worked, silly me

Oh, thank you! This will save my sanity, I believe. Now I can quit wanting to kick the monitor whenever the stupid buggers happen to walk into another because of stupidity overload. The foot-tapping was just so damn annoying, haha.

Heya tomboy, I've played my mods on the vanilla install of Sims 3, the 1.3.24, and now the 1.4.6.

Worked fine in all of those versions with no conflicts with the other creators' 144 mods in my folder at the moment :P

Lemme know if you encounter anything tho!

Here is the list of things known to not cause conflicts, or my entire mods directory at the moment.. Sorry for the length

Most of the time it wouldn't be necessary if the inviter didn't have to "go home". Can you do anything about that?
