Default Add On Club Activities MOD( 12.10.2016) - Added more Activities (Updated for seasons)
Hey Guys, I just realized that a LOT of activities have been left out of the Club Rules . Seriously no TEA DRINKING ACTIVITY !!

So, I have decided to remedy that and add certain activities to the Club Rules

The Following is the List:

1. Pumpkin Carving - done
2. Drink Tea - done
3. Activity Table (Kids) - done
4. Cowplant Interactions - done
5. Collecting (only frog collecting is there in game) - done
6. Cloud Gazing - done
7. Voodoo Doll (will have to unlock the voodoo doll though for that) - done
8. Popcorn Making - done
9. Ice cream Making - done
10. Look for discarded toys(Kids) - done
11. Collect Monsters/Card Trading (Kids stuff SP) - done
12. Go Jogging (Separated from Athletics) - done
13. Message (Separated from Spa Activities) - done
14. Sauna (Separated from Spa Activities) - done
15. Herbalism - done
16. Retail Management - done

17. Tend Bar
18. Take Pictures
19. Collecting wild Plants

Existing Club interactions to be corrected/ made autonomous
1. Watch Movies - Movies Stuff Pack
2. Battle Voidcritters - Kids stuff pack

Currently I have finished with 6 of the activities and want a little testing before proceeding with more. I will keep on adding them in small groups to the original thread.

Part 1

1. Activity Table Club Activity (for Kids) - BG
2. Cow Plant Activities(Cowplant has to acquired through gameplay or acquired from debug mode) - BG
3. Popcorn Machine Club Activities - Movie Stuff SP
4. Pumpkin Carving Club Activities - Spooky Stuff Pack
5. Tea Drinking Club Activities - BG
6. Voodoo Club Activities(Voodoo doll has to unlocked or acquired from debug mode) - BG

Part 2 here

----Refer to the pictures for additional information.

----Will not replace any existing club activity

What I want to know -
1. Whether the club members are performing the relevant activities autonomously
2. Whether relevant activities are giving positive/negative club points
3. Any activity you want added to the list

All the files are separated, choose the ones you want

Issues:-
1. All Voodoo activity is not autonomous (Though I am not sure whether making binding autonomous will be a good idea as the club members will end up binding each other )
2. Sims drink Tea while standing ---they do not sit and drink tea - Issues with some discussions and solutions
3. Popcorn activity not autonomous - Discussion about custom autonomous interactions and solutions Here

It is possible to create rules to make the sims manage retail? How to talk to customers and serves them? And also make the Sims take account of the bars? Thank you

Technically any interaction in the game can be added to the club rules with necessary modifications so it is worth a try! I look into this.Thanks for the idea

Ok, I will be testing, some of those activities baffled me why they can't do together like digging treasure or drinking tea (they can drink coffee but not tea?)

Do we report our findings here?

Default Testing Tea Drinking.
I'm Wickynsims from Twitter the one suggested tea drinking activity there. So I'm really happy to grab it and test it.



What I've seen so far:
  • Club members do brew tea autonomously. But if there's a coffee maker on the lot they also brew it as well.
  • Club members do drink tea autonomously, but if they are not socializing at the same time they prefer to do it standing not seating (as shown above).
  • Club points are given as they should be.

I've also tried to test this club activity with kids using Tea for Children mod by Plasticbox, but this didn't turned out well. Kids do drink tea occasionally if it is already served, but not as it should be with main club activity.

Yes, it will easier to solve the problems if everything is reported in one place. Thank you for checking this out

Do you mean that the two activities cannot be assigned as club activities simultaneously or that when both of them are assigned only one takes precedence?

Dig treasure will require the treasure spawn points/rocks so best results are obtained in a park. If a tea machine is present in the lot, members will drink tea> dig treasure because the tea machine is nearer and more easily accessible than a treasure rock( as sims will have to scan the area for the rocks first). this is because of how the game handles the interactions.

Thanks once again!

Thanks for testing and the lovely picture . The game places tea drinking activity below coffee drinking ( for some reason!! ) so to have only Tea Drinking, I have found that best results are obtained if the coffee drinking activity is listed as a forbidden activity. I left this alone as this will involve changing the game Coffee and tea drinking activity giving rise to conflicts with other mods.

I will look into the standing and not socialising thing.Thanks for the report!

Plasticbox's tea for children mod uses a new custom interaction so my mod won't make them do much of the tea related activities if I don't add the interaction to the club rules. I have left out custom interactions by other creators at the moment as I am not sure how a patch which breaks the custom interaction will behave with my club rules mod. ?In the future though I plan to add it!

Thanks

Default Testing retail actions
I've run some tests for retail actions. And, unfortunately, I think there are some issues.

1) When the club is gathered on retail lot only controlled sim perform restock action autonomously. Others just talk to customers.

2) As far as I understand ring up customers is not included in pushed club retail actions as well as ask about price range and cleaning retail objects?

3) On the other hand manage employees action is in the scope of club actions and it's very annoying, 'cause even with no employees hired at all, my controlled sim is trying every now and then to manage stuff.


4) Normally game generates random retail NPC's when other family is visiting the store with no hired employees. After they are generated and I switch back to my store owner sim, each time the store is opened they appear on the lot. Formally I have no hired stuff members, but these guys are always here now ))) Like these

5) Finally it looks like the first time the new store is opened if retail club is not created or not presented on the lot customers visit the store but do not perform their browsing and buying behavior. They just stand/sit and socialize. Like this . I've kept the store open the whole day and they bought nothing.

Other than your mod I have MC command center installed.

Do they just talk or do they try to upsell, pressure into buying, enthuse about prices, beg for sell etc ?
Unfortunately, I have found out that restock autonomoulsy in not present as an interaction in the game. The best way to solve this is to make a custom interaction for autonomous restocking and use it for the club rules.I will try and do that!

Do you mean the randomly generated employees are there after switching to the owner household? The club rules mod should not affect that...but i will check after removing the manage employees interaction.

Do you mean that even if you hire employees, the customers do not buy ? I have not touched customer behaviour, only the employee behaviour. Again I will remove the manage employee and test again!

Thank you so much for the detailed testing. Much appreciated I will do further testing but I think I will have to release this as a stand alone as this will require many custom interactions!

Thanks once again

They perform social sales interactions with customers like answering questions ect.

Exactly. They appear each time my test sim opens her shop.

I'll try to test it a bit more, honestly, now I can't tell what pushed them to buy stuff in the end. As I did both hire employees and start a club. I'll try these two separately and I'll let you know which influence customer behavior.

Hi, munmun! I tested the eating popcorn activity hoping that I could run a cinema in my game once again. Apparently EA included the watching movie activity already, so I set only those two activities for my movie club.

But unfortunately no one watched the movie, nor ate the popcorn autonomously. Just in case I had my sims to prepare popcorn beforehand, but the result was the same. They did nothing but chatting. - I almost wished there has been an club activity for chatting so that I could set it as a banned activity xD

I'm planning to try other club activities, but so far these are what I've got so far. Thank you again for making this mod!

The were not watching movies

The game does not have any autonomous popcorn eating interaction(ice cream eating is autonomous but popcorn eating is not...why?? ). So I will have to make a custom interaction for it. Will upload the new version to test.

Thank you so much for testing out

Edit: Custom Autonomous Popcorn bowl grabbing interaction added and now they have popcorn autonomously. Will have to add a custom autonomous popcorn crafting interaction too!

Side Note: The in-game 'watch movies club interaction' seems to be bugged a bit!

I'm back with some testing.

1) Go Jogging works fine for me. Club points are granted, club members are doing the interaction autonomously. Active sim must be directed to jog though. But I do not think it's a problem.
2) Star/Cloud Gazing also works, but sims tends to do it only in pairs not by themselves.
3) Cowplant Interactions works perfectly fine.I have the most spoiled cowplant now.
4) Collecting seems to work, but do I understand correctly that sims navigate only to the closest collecting node? Cause while I was testing they've collected only the nearest nodes and then stop. Also if possible can wild plants also be included in collecting activities?
5) Looking for discard toys and Card Trading both work fine. But can I request/suggest modding "Battle with voidcritters" interaction included with the pack? Cause even with this activity selected kids do not battle with voidcritters autonomously (only active sim tends to train them non-stop). So I guess the same as with popcorn custom interaction for battling would be useful.

I will check out the interactions and see whether making single star/cloud gazing possible.

The game directs them to the nearest collecting nodes only.I will see whether \i can make a custom interaction to increase the area of focus.
Will add Wild Plants collection to the list.

I have found that a lot of the existing club interactions ( not to mention many base interactions) lack autonomous activity. I am thinking of a simple xml override with a custom autonomous interaction will do the trick for the battle voidcritters ( and other existing club interaction ). Will add to the list!

Thanks...you are a huge help

Thank you so much for these mods!!! I have desperately wanted these forever. Please add the bubble blower as an activity and I would be forever grateful. Is there any way to add "being nude" as a club activity or somehow an outfit? I still think it would be hilarious to have nudist sim clubs! The more club activities the merrier. Thanks again!

The "watch current movie" interaction is currently broken so technically only one Sim can automously watch a movie at a time. Other Sims have to be manually directed to do so. When other Sims attempt to watch a movie the interaction immediately fails. I've raised this on the EA help forums. Kind of sucks because it you constantly have to direct Sims to watch the movie and it becomes tedious.

I know this thread is a little bit old but maybe anyone can help me.
I'm currently trying to create custom club interaction for the cats & dogs EP to create a working animal shelter. I got everything working beside that some interactions like training dogs are disabled for autonomy.
The club interactions show up in game but club members just stand around doing nothing.

So my questions is how can I enable autonomy for these interactions?
If anyone could help I would be really glad!
