No More Mermaid "Coo" Idle Animation
July 6, 2019 - Small update to code to clean things up a bit. Thank you Manderz0630 for pointing it out. Re-download if you experience any errors with my mod.
So with Island Living we got Mermaids. Mermaids got an idle animation that is kind of awkward looking and much like the Vampire "Hiss" idle animation, Mermaids "Coo" animation can get old rather fast (I suppose on the plus side, it isn't as frequent as what Vampires have). It always makes Sims look a little weird making you scratch your head at what they're on as well as gives away their Mermaid status. So I poked around at what all Mermaids have under their scales and found a few idle animations. Coo sounded like the one I wanted so I put together a little mod that attempts to disable it (I don't really make mods, I spend more time trying to break them or breaking the game with them, so this would be my first mod I've ever really created) and during my tests with it, my Mermaid no longer made herself look awkward as she decided to Coo since she can no longer trigger the idle animation.
So if you want your Mermaids to be a little more undercover or simply find the animation to be kind of annoying, this mod will take care of it. It shouldn't conflict with anything as the only thing that is touched is a single XML
Sims4Studios for finding the XML and creating the mods.
