Autonomous Behavior

No Auto Turn Off TV

DESCRIPTION: Prevents sims from turning off the TV autonomously.

There is actually code that is supposed to prevent sims from turning off TVs if people are watching but it doesn't seem to work so I finally just killed the action entirely.

LAST UPDATE: October 12, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

Fewer Failed Socials

DESCRIPTION: Fewer failures for autonomous social actions.

Covers only Dance Together as other socials have been removed in favor of Social Sanity Fixes at Simbology.

LAST UPDATE: October 22, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

No Move Out Reaction

DESCRIPTION: People no longer stomp their command queues to run over and wave goodbye to sims moving out. Should work for normal move outs, going to college, or graduating.

If you have my mod CJ-NoGraduateReaction, remove it in favor of this one. They don't conflict since this mod uses a different technique, but there is no reason to use the old one anymore.

LAST UPDATE: October 4, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

Sponge Bath Fix

DESCRIPTION: Sims will autonomously take sponge baths only if there are no bathtubs or showers on the property. Player can direct sponge baths at any time.

Unlike previous versions, this one does not extend sponge baths to children. That aspect became broken with FreeTime and I couldn't figure out why so I abandoned it.

LAST UPDATE: August 28, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from the base game through Apartment Life.

Less Relaxing

DESCRIPTION: An evolution of my old NoAutoRelax mod. Unlike that mod, which completely prevented sims from relaxing in bed, this one allows it as long as the sim's energy is > 40%. The purpose is to keep sims using sleepclock from relaxing when they are sleepy, thus missing the call to go to bed.

The player can still order sims to relax in bed. This just affects autonomous behavior.

Updated to fix an EP check bug.

LAST UPDATE: August 31, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: None

No Soaping Fountains

DESCRIPTION: Soaping fountains is not longer allowed, either autonomously or player-directed.

Covers fountains in all the EPs through FreeTime.

LAST UPDATE: August 24, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: University or later

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from University through Apartment Life.

No Visitor Dance Bar

DESCRIPTION: Visitors will no longer use the dance bar, either the one you can buy or the Dance career reward. Playable sims can still use these autonomously, since this is one of the few autonomous skill building actions they will do.

LAST UPDATE: August 19, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: FreeTime

COMPATIBLE EPs: FreeTime through Apartment Life

No Auto Perform

DESCRIPTION: Sims will no longer perform with instruments or join performances autonomously.

This mod has been abandoned in favor of Practice Perform Changes. You can still use this one if you want to kill autonomous Perform completely.

LAST UPDATE: August 23, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: University

COMPATIBLE EPs: All configurations from University through Apartment Life.

No Window Shopping

DESCRIPTION: Have you ever noticed that when you are running a business, some walkbys (usually maids and other NPCs) will enter your establishment, go to some obscure window deep in the building, try to walk through the wall, and then leave?

EA apparently considers this "window shopping". Presumably this is a half-implemented "feature" but as it stands it's just distracting.

This mod kills the behavior. Non-shopping walkbys will just...walk by!

LAST UPDATE: July 29, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: Open For Business

No Steal Paper

DESCRIPTION: Prevents passing enemies from stealing your newspaper. Created for my Apocalypse game, since when some grouchy zombie steals the paper it may mean missing out on a critical job opportunity.

KNOWN ISSUE: Causes walkbys to sometimes run by without being greetable. This is because they try to steal the paper, are prevented, then run away with their imagined booty. A new version is in testing which will not cause this behavior.

LAST UPDATE: February 25, 2008

REQUIRED EPs: Nightlife or later
