EPs Required: At least one EP is required, but it doesn’t matter which one
This hack pulls sad, crying and otherwise morose in-game animations from the base-game. And yes, I know you can access these animations in game, but this way, you won’t have to use cheats to get to them.
They anims are for teens to elders and are categorised as follows:
Cry: Wail, cry, sob
Sad: Snuffle, sigh, sad
Worry: Shake head, wring hands, look around
Distressed: Worried, cringe, can’t look
Console: Being consoled – accepting, being consoled – rejecting, consoling – being rejected
Embarrassed: Embarrassed, abashed, mortified
Pining: Big sigh, pining, whimper
Each animation has two options, “play once” and “loop”. With “play once”, the animation plays once and then stops. The loop, on the other hand, runs until you cancel it, or until your Sim’s motives are all in the red.
For all animations, with exception from the “console” ones, the Sim can either sit or stand, but you’ll need to decide which it is before you run the animation – the Sim won’t change positions once the animation has started. The “console” animations are stand only; the Sim will promptly jump to his/her feet if you run the animation sitting, and then sit back down when he/she is finished.
All the animations can be cancelled from the queue, but there is also a “force end” option that will reset the Sim and snap him/her out of the animation he or she is doing.
IMPORTANT: This hack requires at least one EP, but it doesn’t matter which one – it can be UNI or AL or anything in between.
The hack won’t crash your game if you run it with only the base-game installed (or at least it didn’t on my base-game only computer), but since the base-game doesn’t understand submenus, when selected the animation will start playing immediately, you won’t get to choose whether you want it to loop or just play once. The action can still be cancelled from the queue, though. Note that this happens only if you just have the base-game installed. If you have an EP, any EP, the box works as advertised.
Since these are in-game animations, you’ve probably seen them before, but these are some samples:
