Taking the Romance out of Dancing and Food Fights
I will investigate the idea, but I make no promises as to the chance for success
The food-fight thing is something I will look at as well.
Thanks for looking into them for me!
Is it that strange for the father of the bride to slow-dance with the bride at her wedding? I'm thinking, platonic ballroom dancing... If he dipped her and smooched her, I'd have to wonder what kind of family I married into. hahhaha! "Is she dancing with my father-in-law or my brother-in-law or BOTH?!" ewww...
Dont want it to get creepy, here. ALL standard middle school distance requirements apply! =)
But do you mean to say that the Classic Dance isn't available before AL? Because if that is the case, the classic dance animations would need to be extracted from the AL files and put into a mod for non-AL users. Even if I knew how, wouldn't that be like reverse-engineering Maxis content?

But if AL has to be present anyway, then why would I even *bother* to extract the animations? They're already present after all.
Anyway, if I'm ever going to be coerced to do this, simply copying the Slow dance would be easier. And it would also have the advantage of working even without AL!
But let me do one step back...

I don't know anything about coding the Sims, but I'd like to imagine it's as simple as moving the family check from BEFORE the slow-dance option to AFTER it, thus enabling the dance, but disabling the intimate aspects... But that's probably overly simplistic.
It might not work *quite* like that, indeed, but you're close. Perhaps, the Slow-Dance could be copied, and the family check could be removed from the guardian BHAV. And that same family check would then need to be copied into the guardians for each of the other interactions. And there are still some other issues, such as jealousy and romantic influence of the interaction on the participants.
Sounds like I know how it should be done, right? Theoretically, yes I do. In practice, however,... well, just allow me some time to investigate. I'm not saying "no" yet, but I'm not saying "yes" yet, either.
I don't have AL installed, so I cant answer, cuz I don't know what the "classic dance" looks like. But if the solution to my problem is simply installing AL, then please don't waste your time on my account! I appreciate you looking into it, but devolving the game isn't really crucial. It'd be easier for me to just get AL than to waste your time on back-modding an existing feature. Thank you for entertaining the subject for me, BO. Will you still look into the whole no falling in love with somebody that just chucked a handful of slop in your face thing?
@leefish -- thanks for pointing out that this is already something available, so that I didn't waste any more of BO's time... =)
@justJones -- don't be silly! You definitely added to the conversation... Cuz i'da felt WAY CREEPY if you hadn't backed me up! HAHA!
