I was trying to think up content for Child sims and thought, "What's most fun about being a kid?" My first thought was, goofing around and having no responsibilities. So I came up with a couple of interactions for Child sims, under a new pie menu called Play (it appears when you click on your Child sim).

Fake Cry

You must be standing for this interaction to work. If you're sitting, your sim will either get up to do it or the interaction simply won't work.

What Does It Do?

Fake Cry does a crying animation. It builds a little Fun and a little Creativity skill while it's running.


Draw Air Shapes

You must be sitting at a table for this interaction to work. If you're not sitting at a table, the interaction won't work.

What Does It Do?

Draw Air Shapes: Your sim uses a crayon to draw shapes seemingly in mid-air. It builds a little Fun and a little Creativity skill while running.


Why the sitting/standing restrictions?

These interactions were created using existing animations, so I was limited in what I could get functioning smoothly. Fake Cry uses the animation sequence from mourning, which is a standing animation. Draw Air Shapes uses the animation sequence from the Child Activity Table, which requires sitting at a table.


Conflicts: No known conflicts. All resources are new and should not conflict with other sim files.
