Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a custom scripted marker object used for creating jogging tracks for your sims.Just place the markers at points along where you'd like your sims to jog on, and send them jogging along the designated track with a custom Go Jogging interaction by clicking on the ground or floor.
The marker can be found in Buy Mode under Entertainment > Sporting Goods and is rather inexplicably named Go Jogging (after the interaction) to save the mod from having to be translated (both the object name and description reuse in game text so should automatically show up translated in your game)
You are free to place the object as you like to create your track (it has to be on an actual lot though, both residential and commercial lots are okay). Things to keep in mind:
The markers are only visible in Buy and Build Mode so you won't be able to see them or click on them in Live Mode. To get a sim to manually jog on a track just click anywhere on the floor of the room the track is on and use the Go Jogging interaction (requires at least 1 level of Athletic Skill or it won't appear). Unless the interaction is manually cancelled, sims will jog around the track until they become fatigued or have a dire need that needs tending to. Occasionally they will stop to recalculate routing, sometimes leaving the track to do so, but will immediately continue jogging afterwards.
Sims with the required Athletic skill can also autonomously decide to jog on the track on their own as long as there are less than 3 sims already on the track to prevent overcrowding (you can still manually direct sims to jog at any time). Also while jogging you can click on any other sim in the same room and ask them to join in provided there isn't anything blocking them from jogging in the first place (i.e. insufficient skill/fatigue/low needs)
Build and tested on patch 1.67
Should be Base Game compatible. The object is based on the horse race training posts from the Pets expansion (in fact it just an extremely simplified version of it made for human sims), however the script and the object itself should not need the expansion itself to work. Can't actually confirm this until someone without Pets willingly tries it out, but it should be safe
Since this is a newly scripted object it should not conflict with any other mods. There is an ITUN in the package for the autonomous version of the jogging interaction, the user directed version uses the tuning from the game's JogHere_Terrain ITUN so if you have another mod modifying it this mod will simply read and use the changes from there without conflicting.
