Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This download features an custom Animation of yoga practice.

UPDATE 3:
New interaction "Yoga Intermediate" with 3 custom animations! It is available after reaching level 4 of Athletic skill. Advanced yoga now requires level 7
You can now carry the Yoga Rug with you! Why not enjoy doing Yoga at the park or on the beach?
Yoga slightly increases fun
Your Sims returns to his/her proper Outfit after doing Yoga.
Yoga rug is now found under the Study room: indoor activity, or Entertainment: sporting goods

UPDATE 2: The rug now increases the Athletic skill! The animations loop, Advanced Yoga is limited to the Sims with 4+ skill points

UPDATE: As asked, this comes now as a Rug with two different interaction and many more animations!



This is a package file, and is installed the same way every package file is.
It does not require any particular mod, and should work with every game. There should be no conflict with any other mods.
It is fully compatible with the 1.31 game patch.

The object is based on RugMission3x2. You can find it in the Rug section, it is entitled "Rug Yoga", and costs 1S$
The object does now record the progress for the athletic skill ; the yoga also counts as cardio workout. After a few hours it will make your Sims tired, and practicing yoga also reduces the hygiene (but slower than standard athletic methods). The gain of athletic points is similar to other athletic objects.

The object features two interaction
Basic Yoga
Advanced Yoga (accessible once you reach the 4th point in Athletic skill)

I would really love to hear your comments on this, so please, give feedback on what you would like to be added or changed.
Nonetheless, be aware that it is quite time consuming to work on animations, so be reasonable in your requests for improvement.

You may change it, reuse it, and do whatever you want, as long as you give me credit.
Hope you enjoy.

Default Line regarding strings was removed due to being fixed.
Good start! I was thinking about an object of this nature the other day. I am bored with the same two exercises of machine weights and standing squats and jumping stars so this makes a good addition, even if it is a work-in-progress. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to get the animation to play in a constant loop until the interaction is cancelled by the player. I'm looking forward to a more expanded version of this in the near future!

"Partice" is incorrect, it's "practice".

What a cool idea! This is an awesome beginning to new, completely custom objects. Thank you!

PS. I had to laugh at gesimz' comment, hopefully that's an easy fix =P

Love your idea as well, although I do have one suggestion. If you do decide to tread the more mature path that gesimz suggested, the sister site, SS2 would be the place to expand on that idea. I could see many possibilities there. Thank you for sharing it!!

Really nice! Also, the correct is "pratice", isn't "partice". But is just a detail

Please fix the language string and then we can un-tag. Let us know in Creator Issues when it is ready.

if you mean SXS2, i think they're in hibernation and i'm not quite sure if they're taking submissions anymore, though the message on the home page kinda confuses me and it looks like they may be still accepting it, but i agree, it does belong on that site or change the coding for this site.

Would it be too hard to change mirror to rug more realistic that way?

i'd love this as a rug this is a big break through because this is the first actual downlopad of new animations i've seen or have i just been hiding under a rock? lol

Love this! But like others have said, needs to be in a loop so it lasts longer or has more moves.
I'd also like to see a mirror used for ballet dancing but I guess that would take a lot of new animation. Anyway, hope to see this expanded. Please keep up the awesome work!

Not quite the first... I think CMO's ceiling fan was the first animated object, and his openable window was the first animated object with new Sim animations as well (at MTS, anyway), but these were so simple and natural that a lot of people probably didn't even notice.

But there have been very, very few, and this one is certainly much more ambitious. Impressive work

This is an awesome object, truly. You have broken new ground here.
I feel almost guilty to say this, but:

>Sims revert to casualwear after using it, regardless of which clothes they wear when starting yoga.
>A rug would be far better.
>Animation loops once. Probably 3-5 times would be better. If it was continuous then non-selected sims would have trouble using it (I think)
>Error trap resets the sim after use, although this should probably go to Twallan, not you.

AWESOME THOUGH.

Ah, it is now a rug. Very impressive!

Now, some suggestions:

-What if only more athletic sims (maybe sims with the athletic skill at level 5 or above?) can do the advanced yoga poses?
-It will also be very great if doing yoga adds to the athletic skill! Looking at your notes though, I'll assume that you're working at it.

Even by itself, though, the rug is truly great! I will wait for your updates!
