This is just a small mod I made for my game to have more outlets for Sim's to use their money. Basically if your Sim is working out, and he is doing it on a community lot, they will have to pay for this service.

Prices:
- Workout: 150§
- Swimming: 30§

How it works:
This mod listens to two events that are triggered when Sims work out kStoppedWorkingOut and kSwimming.
If the Sim is using the bench, the treadmill, a TV or the stereo, they pay for the workout when they stop using the equipment.
So if a Sim first uses the treadmill and then the bench, he will pay after he finishes with the treadmill and after he finishes with the bench, the amount of time he used working out doesn't matter.

For swimming you pay according to how long you swim. The kSwimming event is triggered about every 15 minutes you are swimming. The event is the same that satisfies the "went swimming" want. So if you swim for 5 minutes, you pay nothing, if you swim for 30 minutes you pay 60§.

If the lot is owned by another Sim, the money earned from working out will go to the lot owner.
If a Sim doesn't have enough money, the amount is added to his next bill.

Modding the mod:
If you want to change the workout prices, you can do it by modifying the WorkOutConfig.xml file inside the package using s3pe. There are two values, <workoutfee> and <swimfee>.

Conflict: This will not work with core mods that have for some reason disable the alerts, or modified payment/lot owning codes.

Bugs: So far I have not found any, but if you do find something, please tell.

Have fun

So have you checked to see if this is LN compatible? I'm asking before I download because I spent about 10 hours determining which already-installed mods I had were causing the game to crash.

I assume that since this affects community lots that it will also affect fire stations? This mod sounds extremely interesting, and I'm very tempted to install it into my game, but I'm hesitant because I don't like the thought of my current firefighter sim getting charged 150 simoleons every time he works out on the weightlifting bench at work. I think that would be just as unrealistic as the free gym membership this mod seeks to do away with. Maybe I'll use this with the non-firemen sims I use in the future...

Either way, though, I do appreciate the time and effort you put into making and uploading this, ani!

LotrFanboy: Yes, it's any community lot, without discrimination, but I guess I could take a look and see can I narrow it down so fire-stations are not included in this mod, as I've been thinking about the same thing that they should get free workouts. But because nobody in my hood is currently in that career, I haven't thought about it that much.

Thanks for the reply, ani. It would be great if you could figure out a way to exclude fire stations, but no biggie if you can't.

Cool idea, but one little annoyance. When sims work out or swim on a lot owned by my sims, there is a constant stream of alerts telling me so-and-so worked out. This is amusing for about 5 minutes, but then grows annoying. Is there any way to disable that?

Hi ani, I love your mods! I've been using several of them for awhile now, including this one. Anyway, I was wondering if you've ever thought about maybe adding the martial arts equipment to this mod. I recently set up a gym with some training dummies and it feels so cheaty to be able to practice the skill for free, especially when you'd usually have to pay to go to the vacation world to learn it, and I thought if it could be set up like the rest of the gym equipment it would be much more balanced. If that's something you would be interested in making that would be awesome.

I would love this.

Could you please make a version that does this ani?

Does this mod need updated for patch 1.32/ShowTime? Thank you.

EDIT: I just finish posting, ani already updated the mod. So quick. Thank you very much.

150 simoleons for a workout each time on the equipment? hmmmm i dunno. it would be more realistic to just pay for a session in the gym, if you could figure out how to do that. like trigger a payment when the sim leaves. that sounds better. and 40 simoleons instead of 150. that sounds pretty realistic to me

That's why I made the mod tunable so each player can modify the value to their liking

Hi! id like to thank you for your awesome mods, I started using them just recently and I love most of them. I have one small request though, can you please include resorts to the list of community lots that charge for workouts and swimming sessions? Please

Wonderful! I sometimes don't see the point of having gym equipment (or swimming pool) in my house, if I can use the community ones freely. Plus my male sim can ogle at female sims there :D

And thanks for the tuning mod! I'm dialing the fees up to 11 ;-)

#46 Old 4th Nov 2016 at 10:32 PM
Now it sounds like it charges every time you use the equipment. Am I right? Or is it a monthly fee?
