Walking Animations

Routing in the sims is not controlled by SimAntics, instead it is controlled by an external "Walking Engine" which takes over from the avatar's SimAntics thread when one of the routing primitives (Goto Routing Slot, Goto Relative Position) is called. As such, a few animation pointers are hard-coded into the game to use for certain types of sim (male, female, cat, dog).

Bear Walk Start a2o-bear-walking-start.anim N/A N/A
Bear Walk Loop a2o-bear-walking-loop.anim N/A N/A
Raccoon Walk Start N/A N/A d2o-raccoon-walk-start.anim
Raccoon Walk Loop N/A N/A d2o-raccoon-walk-loop.anim
Raccoon Run Start N/A N/A d2o-raccoon-walk-start.anim

Rotations while moving are achieved simply by gradually rotating the character while the walking loop is playing.

NOTE: 135 degree rotations are achieved by gradually rotating the sim while playing the 90 degree rotation.
