23 Autonomous/Automatic Pet Interaction Disablers

by gesimz Posted 13th Dec 2011 at 7:28 PM - Updated 26th Nov 2012 at 12:10 PM by gesimz : Removed conflicting mod
279 Thanks  Thanks     64 Favourited
UPDATE 26/11/12 - Just a small update for the NoAutoLookInOutWindows mod. None of the other 22 iTUNs have changed with Seasons, thus an update is not required and should work fine for Seasons.

07/09/12 - Updated the NoAutoLookInOutWindows(C,D,S) .package due to the brooding trait that's included in Supernatural.

07/09/12 - Incorporated the Sniffing mod into investigating mod due to both altering two identical iTUN resources. The single combined file has also been removed.

WHAT THIS MOD IS/DOES & SPECIFICS

This tuning mod comprises of a requested no autonomy mod for Pets and several others Pet autonomy disablers in response to certain automatic interactions for Pets appearing excessively in-game. In total, there are 23 (two dozen) no autonomy mods available for download in this thread, either separately (mixing and matching choosing the files you want) or all 20 autonomy mods together in one .package which are as follows (in no particular order):

If any of the autonomy mods don't work as intended in your game or you have a specific request for a certain autonomy mod that has NOT been done/made somewhere else, let me know in the comments and i'll diagnose the situation and upload a working version and/or the request autonomy mod here.

Compatibility

This mod was made with the latest 1.26 patch but in order to get any proper use out of this/these mods, you'll need to have the Pets expansion pack installed given that what's installs Pets into the Sims 3, otherwise, it's fairly pointless to download these mods. If you download all 23 autonomy mods, it edits the CatDogInvestigate_Sim, HorseInvestigate_Sim, SniffOut_Terrain, RunAround_Sim, JumpOnObject_GameObject, JumpOffObject_GameObject, CatGroomSelf_Sim, HideUnderObject_GameObject, PetPlayOnCarpet_Sim, PlayOnCarpetInternal_Terrain, GallopAround_Sim, HorseDigAutonomy_Sim, HorseDig_Terrain, HorseGraze_Terrain, HorseGrazeAutonomy_Sim, PickUpPet_Sim, LookInWindow_Windows, LookOutWindow_Windows, Chase_DogBall, DrinkWater_WaterTrough, BegForHarvestable_Sim, ChasePlay_Sim, ChaseSocialInteractionB_Sim, HorseScratchBack_Terrain HorseScratchBackAutonomy_Sim, Chew_CatToy, Chew_ChewToy, ScratchObject_GameObject, LieOnNewspaper_Newspaper, PresentTo_ICatPrey, PetScratchAtFrontDoor_Lot, PetScratchAtDoorForSocial_Sim, PetScratchAtDoor_Sim, BringInNewspaper_Newspaper, GuardObject_GameObject, CatDogInvestigate_Sim, HorseInvestigateSim, PetInvenstigateStrangeSim_Sim, DrinkFromPondAutonomously_IFishingSpot, DrinkFromPondAutonomouslyHorse_IFishingSpot, DrinkFromPondDogCat_Terrain and DrinkFromPondHorse_Terrain itun files and Criminal+AuraOfEvil XML file and will conflict with any other mod that edits the same 42 itun files and 1 XML file. If you only opt for one or some of the autonomy mods, than the files that are edited will obviously vary. Check "Conflict Info" under each individual mod before downloading to ensure you aren't using any other mods that use the same itun and/or XML file.

Installation

Simply drag and drop/cut & paste/copy & paste the .package file(s) into your Mods\Packages as normal.
