This mod fixes various problems with the Exerto Super Exercise Bike:
  • Sims will stop using the bike under the same conditions as they stop using other exercising machines. Originally, Sims don't care about their needs while using the bike and they can die due to that.
  • A turned on TV located in front of a Sim using the bike doesn't make their fun need fulfilled immediately anymore. It will make a Sim gain 10% of the fun bar per hour instead.
  • If a TV located in front of a Sim using the bike gets turned off, their needs decay won't get reset.
  • Active Sims (having at least 5 points of activeness) can gain additional fun while biking, just like they were using other exercise machines, at most 5% of the fun bar per hour.
Update (19 Mar 2020): Fixed further bugs.

Do not use this mod with Exercise Bike Correction by xptl297.

This type of mod has been made so many times ... not sure what makes yours different, but I'm willing to give it a try to see if it works as intended in my game.

@LilSister I've seen only one other mod that really fixes this bug, but it also affects needs decreasing (curious bladder filling) and checks autonomy conditions (by the way, not very sensible) during the interaction.

Love what you bring to sim community.
This is one of those fixes that I had not realized I needed until I saw it (and read posts about sims dying!)
Thanks for sharing this with the rest of us!

@Rosebine There are no other maxis exercise bikes. I've written Exerto Super Exercise Bike to be precise, because there may be custom exercise bikes. The mod doesn't affect them.

Great idea. However, I won't download it as I use the bike precisely as a means of killing Sims off - makes a change from drowning, fire, etc. :D

I didn't care about that before... I have not used such modifications. but my Sims died because of an obsession with sports. She is survived by her husband and three teenage children. her children and her husband dreamed of resurrecting her. she returned to cycling. and she died again. I will use your mod.thank you for your hard work.
