Have you ever noticed how bland your sims look when they’re walking from one point to another? And how they will only display emotion and react to the world around them when standing still?
This is a compilation of mods that attempt to fix that by changing various animations to be played when sims are routing instead of only when they’re standing still.
It’s important to note that some animations may look slightly weird, because they weren’t made to work like this. Still, they look much more dynamic and realistic if you can ignore the occasional awkwardness.
BETTER THERMOSTAT REACTIONS
This mod affects animations related to the current thermostat temperature.
Seasons pack required!
BETTER MOOD REACTIONS
This mod affects animations related to the sim’s current mood.
This is incompatible with the NoEmotionalWalks package from Scarlet’s Walk Normal mod, which is now being updated by MizoreYukii here.
I included a “nowalkstyles” version, so if you want Better Mood Reactions but you also have NoEmotionalWalks in your folder, delete it and use nowalktsyles instead.
BETTER MOTIVE REACTIONS
This mod affects animations related to the sim’s motives, specifically when they’re low. There are options to disable motive-related walkstyles and/or change low-fun buffs to bored (from tense) and low-energy buffs to dazed (from uncomfortable):
• walkstyle-nomoodchanges: Buffs and walkstyles remain unchanged.
• walkstyle-moodchanges: Walkstyles remain unchanged, buff moods are modified.
• nowalkstyle-nomoodchanges: Walkstyles are removed, buffs remain unchanged.
• nowalkstyle-moodchanges: Walkstyles are removed and buff moods are modified.
Please choose only one option!
BETTER ENVIRONMENT REACTIONS
This mod affects animations related to the environment around the sim. Things like puddles, trash piles, food, etc. It also affects the reactions to dust level from the Bust The Dust kit and the tiny home reactions from Tiny Living.
