Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Toddler Interactions
This mod adds a several interactions available to toddlers, which allows toddlers interact with other sims and the world more. These interactions are autonomous, that's mean toddlers will act like a normal toddler!

Enjoy!

New Interactions
InteractionDescriptionRequirement/Extra
Chat with ToddlerChat with another toddlerBoth toddlers learnt talking
Explore AroundExplore around the house by targeting random objectThey might amazed by intersting objects
Have BottleHave bottle themselvesHungry and genius toddler
Eat from BowlEat pet food from pet bowlThis interaction will show up if you have EP5 (Pets); but it's not required for the mod to work.

Notes
Though it doesn't harm to have "Toddler Social" at the same time,
this mod also add "Chat" functionality to toddlers, it's not neccessary to have both.

Known Issues
For those who had previously downloaded this mod, the "crawling disease" won't be healed automatically, probably you will need "Running Disease Hotfix " to reset your toddler's walking style. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Once toddlers got the "Hungry" buff, parents just stop everything to solve the "Take Care Child" commodity first, I made a hidden interaction for parents to solve this buff, and push genius toddlers to have bottle themselves instead of taking bottle from parents, but this doesn't stop parents from putting down everything and find an interaction to solve that buff.

Possible Conflicts
This is a pure script mod that adds new functionality to the game,
and it doesn't alter any part of the game, so it probably won't conflict.

Compatibility
I have recompiled the mod and tested again under 1.42 game version,
Since the code didn't change, it might be fine to use this mod under previous game version,
but there's no guarantee that there will be no problem, so take your own risk.
Animations used comes from base game or newly created, thus no expansion packs are required.
Update is not needed for 1.47 compatibility.

Language Support
I could only offer English and Traditional Chinese for this mod,
and please feel free to translate the mod using the translation file provided.

Thanks everyone helps translating the mod.

Great Mod, but I think, toddlers must be able to sleep in pet beds.

Thank you so much. My sim just had twins and I hated how toddlers couldn't talk to each other. I don't know what world the developers at EA live in but in this world toddlers talk to each other in their baby language.

Yes awesome. Being the father of a toddler in real life I was annoyed at how little a walking and talking toddler could do, they seemed a waste of time! I installed this and told one of my toddlers quickly rushed outside and explored the steps up to the decking, so I panicked and sent her mother to get her, then both my toddlers had a lengthy conversation about firemen, dummies and their mother! Neither are geniuses so i couldn't try the bottle one, but i will on my next child!

Totally agree with the peek-a-boo idea and the sleeping in the pet bed one (my son loves sitting in my dogs bed!) Also, how about if the toddler is hungry and ignored for long enough they pick bad food out of the bin (nasty!)

Sounds fun! I usually age up toddlers quickly because making them stop screaming is just boring. Thanks!

A third recommendation for looking into toddlers sleeping in pet beds large enough for them here, and also a few ideas I've thought of myself or seen suggested elsewhere:

- A "throw tantrum" self-interaction, perhaps using the sound effects and upper body animations for a screaming tantrum when sitting in a high chair applied to a toddler sitting on the floor if you can get rid of the sounds of it hitting the high chair with its hands. Used to actively draw the attention of babysitters and other nearby sims if you don't have the Store baby monitor, though it's not a direct order to attend to any particular motive. Also autonomous for toddlers with low moods, and occasionally any toddler with Grumpy as a trait.

- As well as toddler-to-toddler peek-a-boo, perhaps an interaction with floor-length mirrors where a toddler plays peek-a-boo with with themselves and pulls faces at the mirror could work?

- Also, an autonomous interaction (perhaps not selectable or visible to the player) with which to improve toddler autonomy: As well as exploring around by themselves, perhaps toddlers could occasionally be directed by the AI to follow sims they have a high relationship with around for a bit if otherwise unoccupied? I believe TS2 had some kind of autonomous behaviour along these lines.

These are just suggestions, of course. I'm not demanding things here.

oh man, I love this mod, and I haven't even put it in my game! I've been looking for ways to enhance my toddlers and have missed all their interactions. Like with each other and the ones they had in S2. I enjoyed watching them eat from pet bowls and sleep in their beds. made it easier on me. I miss that we used to be able to teach the tots nursery rhymes too...

yes, please update this mod ^^

I can confirm that this mod and Cancel Time Off don't work with 1.50, I hope Cherry can work on them whenever she can manage.

#143 Old 8th Mar 2013 at 2:31 PM
Actually, this mod doesn't seem entirely non-functional with 1.50. I tried it earlier, Explore Around and Have Bottle seemed to work as normal. Didn't get round to testing Eat from Bowl, though I'm pretty sure it still worked the last time I did this while waiting for the 1.42 update. I assume, therefore, that toddlers talking to each other is the part that doesn't work with the current patch?

Am I the only one who can't get this to work? It worked fine before the last patch. Now it's as if I don't have the mod. The options don't show up. I think this and Cancel Time Off need to be updated but has anyone else experienced this?
