  • Fixed flickering on Sims' hands and feet during the CAS greeting animation, especially apparent in teen Sims and Sims with extreme values in body sliders.

Description
This is a jazz script + animation mod that alters the animations played in Create a Sim for Sims aged Teen to Adult.

Its main purpose is to give Sims more gender-neutral, natural-looking animations: female Sims will stand up straight like their male counterparts instead of having their heads tilted constantly, and all Sims have a new greeting animation that plays when you open CAS or load a Sim from the Sim Bin.

Toddler, Child and Elder Sims haven't had their animations altered, but they may benefit from some of the other tweaks this mod comes with, depending on which of the three following flavors you choose:
  • CASAnimEdit: Overrides the CAS greeting and makes sure female Sims share the same animation as male Sims so that they will stand up straight. Toddlers, Children and Elders unaffected.
  • CASAnimEdit_NoFacialIdle: Same edits as the above and retains some of the idle animations (ie. breathing, looking around) while you're zoomed out, but freezes the Sim once you zoom into them to allow you to edit their features without distractions. Works for all ages.
  • CASAnimEdit_StandStill: Just like above, Sims will greet upon entering CAS, then they'll stand completely still; no idles, no facial expressions. The only animations they will display are those of selecting clothing and traits. Works for all ages, see Known Issues.
Remember you may only have one flavor installed at a time.

Known Issues
  • In the StandStill flavor, Toddlers and Elders will still have some idle animations when zoomed out, but will freeze in position once you zoom into them. I want to look into this and fix it.

Compatibility
This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the following game resources:
  • ingame\sims\soloanims\cas\animation\cas.jazz
  • a_cas_flavor_greet_male_average_x
