This is a mod I mainly made for my own use. But when I mentioned it on Simbology, people wanted to know where to get it. It's a compilation containing:
  • Cyjon's DanceNearStereo and NoHomeBuskers
  • Dizzy's Hula, Slap dance and Smustle fixes
  • Marhis' TipJarPickup mod
  • TwoJeffs' BuskerTippingHack.
This works miracles:
  • No autonomous Hula, Slap-dance or Smustle. And if these dances are performed, it must be NEAR the stereo.
  • No autonomous performances at home lots.
  • No endless waiting for sims to pick up their tipjar...
  • Tippers move on after dropping their cash.

And nothing is keeping you from combining this with Cyjon's PracticePerformChanges, so you also get:
  • No autonomous use of the instruments in Dorms, unless a playable is already performing, in which case dormies will JOIN.
  • All other goodness that comes from PracticePerformChanges (of course).
For now, I've set the requirement to Bon Voyage, but maybe this mod will even behave well with less. On the other hand, perhaps it would cause problems if you don't have at least FreeTime. Although I doubt that. Please let me know if you run into issues, and I'll investigate.

Credits: this mod wouldn't exist, if it weren't for the work that Cyjon, Dizzy, Marhis and TwoJeffs have done. I just put them all in one package, and maybe solved some minor conflicts which probably could have been settled with load order. I deserve no credit for this.

Update, July 23rd, 2011: Plugged a hole in the smustle, hula and slap dance routines, so autonomy should now TRULY be stopped Smile Thank you, Sleepy, for reporting this issue.

I've used quite a few mods by others, thus taking FROM the community. With the work that *I* create, I'm hoping to give something back TO the community.

Do with my work whatever the &#$% you like. If you re-use, edit and republish my work, I consider it a compliment. Especially if you let me know about it, and mention me in the credits.

But, although I would *appreciate* the note and the credits, if you choose to be a dick and act as if YOU created my mods, there's not a whole lot I can do to stop you, so I won't even TRY.

Hmm, and now the ampersand is broken again... the thumbnail stopped showing up... Ok, I'll just stop using those... it's not much of a problem Wink

I took it out as it was causing an issue with another file. Sorry. Trying to track down what is causing the reply to hang....


Sorry, that is a members only option
