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!


New Interactions
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.

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.


22/06/2012 Bugs fixed; probably sims are not forced to reset anymore.
22/06/2012Fixed spelling mistake of 'adventure' in game but not screenshot.
22/06/2012Added translations for six languages.
23/06/2012Added Dutch and Spanish translation.
24/06/2012Added default tuning file; See instruction below.
24/06/2012Added Portuguese translation.
25/06/2012 Bug fixed; toddler will always walk if they learnt walking.
26/06/2012Added Brazilian Portuguese translation.
22/07/2012Added Finnish translation.
29/07/2012Added tuning files.
01/08/2012 Added new interaction: Eat from Bowl
21/12/2012Updated to 1.42 compatibility.
11/01/2013Added Danish and Czech translation.

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.

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 thanks to Simoro for the eating pet food animation.
Thanks Buzzler and nonamena's help for making new buffs.
Thanks MDM for the idea of making genius toddlers feed themselves.
Also thanks MDM, nonamena and Inge_Jones' help for the autonomy.

An update for those wondering about patch compatibility: Of the four interactions included in this mod, toddlers talking to each other is the only one that doesn't seem to work. I've definitely successfully had them explore around, drink bottles themselves and eat from pet bowls since patch 1.50.

This is awesome. I've always wondered why couldn't the toddlers do the things you have now fixed (though I pictured them eating earth instead of pet food). You're awesome.

Please, can you make an update for patch 1.50?
Like MinghamSmith said, toddlers talking to each other does not work and this is the main reason I would like to use your mod.

Thanks ;-)

Pleaaaaase could you please make it work with 1.50?? I can`t imagine the game without this mod!

Can we please get an update for 1.50? Toddlers need more interactions and things to do so bad. I never got to experience this, but I'd love to have it.

I had no problems running this with 1.50. After patching to 1.55 my game would load to about 98-99% and just stop loading. I went through my cc and this ended up being the culprit .

I used this mod with patch 1.55 and after installing Island Paradise and the game loads fine. Using it on 2 different computers. Maybe it was just conflicting with another one of your mods?

So, I'm confused. Do I need to download the string file as well for this to work, or not?

Just a point of interest if any of those having problems are running on a Mac.

When we extracted the zip file and put the package file into our mods folder then ran the game, the mod didn't work.

However, after checking, it seems that upon extraction it didn't keep the ".package" file format needed for the game. After re-naming it with the needed extension, the mod ran just fine.

We're patched to 1.55.

Hope that helps

I decided to go ahead and try this mod out and it worked fine in my game with Patch 1.55.

I've got a ton of other mods and every expansion other than Supernatural, Seasons, and University. Game and the save loaded fine and nobody was reset, I got no errors, and the interactions worked. I'll report back if anything does come up though in the long run.

Aye, I, too, would like to know if this works with patch 1.57. :o

I just updated to patch 1.57 and this mod still works for me.

My test toddlers could successfully talk to each other, eat from pet bowls, and explore around autonomously and when told to do so. I didn't get a chance to test the bottle interaction, but everything else is working fine for me.

I've got a ton of tweaking mods, endless custom content, nearly the whole suite of Twallan's mods, and every expansion. Nothing conflicts and my game and saves load fine with this installed.

Hope that helps.

Default 1.57 and Win8
I have all EPs, hundreds of mods, cc and Twallan's mods. I updated to 1.57 the first day it came out and have not had any issues with the mod or loading/saving. The toddlers still do everything as claimed autonomously and when instructed. I'm running win7 but just bought a new box with win8 so I have no clue if everything works there yet.

06/13 - Have been using the mod with Windows 8 for a couple days now. Transferred everything from the old computer to the new, no changes or deletions. Mod works perfectly.
