MissingChildAnim Fix (Drink Chocolate/Drink Juice)

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I honestly have no idea how or why this is suddenly broken, or why/how/if it ever worked before in Seasons, but it's definitely broken in BV. Strange...coulda sworn children could drink hot chocolate in Seasons just fine, and nothing has changed there.

Y'know, there's just lots of interaction possibility in TS2 that I never use - I only let the spawn drink juice or chocolate milk if there's no adult alive and awake on the lot to make brekkers.  The spawnlets should be skilling, making friends, sleeping, or at school.  Consequently, I had not noticed it was broken either.  Downloading nevertheless, just for those occasional times I say, "hey, what's this for?" and send a kid to the fridge.

We're talking about the fresh juice frome the juicer (seasons) that gives skill point or badge point, or warm up, gives platinum mood etc, not the juice from the fridge.

aHa!  So there IS child borkenness.  In my post here http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,9668.msg264021.html#msg264021 I attached a log about missing animation when a motion sick child tried to vomit but I was just chalking it up to some random conflict I'd been having in the game.  *shrugs*  Looks like you dumped the error log.  No big deal.

Ah thank you! 

This did work in Seasons because I often fed my children apple juice to do homework, and hot chocolate.  When I tried this since BV the child would jump out...not nice!

Thank god we have people like you to fix the game!

It's the BV helicopter ride on one of the tours - a bad tour and the passengers come back with motion sickness.  Or there are other bad things.  Frankly, the tours kinda suck - they're more bad than they are good, IMO.

They definitely could drink hot chocolate in Seasons as that is what I used to caffienate them if they were too sleepy to do homework.

It works great; the spawn children can drink again. Thanks. <3

However, when I was testing it out I used eggplant juice and the child got the memory of maxing out ____ skill even though she only had two points in whatever the subject was. This happened with every Sim I directed to drink eggplant juice.

Perhaps EAxis really did try to add in the maxed skill memories for juice and screwed up big time.

This is a known and confirmed bug, yes. This is not currently considered a critical issue since you'd eventually get one of those anyway.

I foolishly took my latest family, which includes their two young daughters, on a camping holiday in the winter. Each morning they came out of their tent BLUE with cold and I REALLY wished I'd had this fix before they went LOL!
I'm now going to slip this into my hacks folder and go back into the game to do some minor alterations to the community lots in the mountains so that they all have chocolate machines and/or baths. I don't want another holiday where all my sims walk around BLUE all day!
Is it my imagination or did they 'do something' to the hot cholocate machine also to reduce it's effects? I'm certain that before, one mug of hot chocolate was usually enough to warm them up. It seems to take two or three since I installed BV?

Many thanks for all your great work, Sir.

I only recently installed Seasons (patched before playing), and do not yet have BV. My sim-kids cannot drink hot chocolate. I haven't tested juice yet. Can this be used without BV installed? If not, will you consider making a Seasons version?

Should work in Seasons. Is this a p2 problem? I never installed beyond p1, and I know that in p0, kids were able to drink the chocolate, and possibly in p1. Perhaps it was broken in p2?

You need a teen or older to actually make the chocolate first, don't know whether you've tried that?

Yes, I do believe it must be a p2 problem, as that's the patch I installed directly after installing the EP, and the simkids have been unable to drink hot chocolate from the time I began playing.

ETA: I do have an older sim make the hot chocolate, but when a child tries to drink some, it picks up the mug, and the mug immediately disappears from the child's hand. I'll try this fix to see if it works without BV. I backed up my files this morning, so the worst that can happen is I'll have to restore from the backup.

I was still running Seasons P2 when this patch first came out. I tested my game without this mod, and the kids drank hot chocolate just fine.

I'm assuming BV broke it.

I'm guessing I must have something else causing a conflict. Even with this mod in, my simkids cannot drink hot chocolate (I still haven't tested the juice). Then again, my Downloads folder seems to have become corrupted, so that alone would explain why suddenly half my hacks have quit working and why recolours are overwriting the original textures. I am currently moving all of my files to a spanky new Downloads folder in hopes that this will correct the numerous problems I've experienced since reinstalling my entire game.

I wasn't sure if anyone would want to know, but this is still broken in FT, even with the new BV patch. I just installed all that this weekend (I now have all stuff and expansions installed) and tried to have my kid drink cocoa (he was exhausted at 7PM. What little kid goes to bed at 7?). Anyway, I was looking through the FT hacks directory and this wasn't in it, and I was wondering why. Another question: would it be possible for the kids to make their own cocoa? It gets annoying to need an adult to do it; how hard is dumping packets and water in a machine, anyway?
Also, does anyone else feel the motives in FT crash really fast? I'm suspicious that Eaxis made regular sims' motives go down fast so the rewards would be more worthwhile. Just a thought.
Thanks for this fix.

I keep hearing this, and while I haven't performed deep research on it, empirical observation seems to suggest that sim battery lives are unchanged. However, some interactions are energy-draining for random illogical reasons.

I noticed that Grandpa Aspir's motives took a severe hit after I decided to use his points.  I probably sent him to an early grave at 110 days.  Tongue
