Do you regret giving your sims the singing skill, because once they reach level 3, they start serenading their partner nonstop, and you're feeling embarrassed for them because their talent is questionable ? If your answer is yes, then this mod is for you.


What does this mod do ?

This is a "no autonomy" mod. Once you've installed it, sims will stop singing serenades to their partner autonomously, but you can still direct them to do it. Sims may still serenade their partner with musical instruments autonomously.


How do I install this mod ?

Unzip it. Place the package in your Mods folder. Start the Sims 4 and enable custom content and mods in Game options - Other. Apply changes, quit and restart the Sims 4, and enjoy !

Patch and updates

This mod was built with version 1.27, and requires City Living expansion pack. It might be incompatible with earlier versions of the Sims 4 ; if your game isn't up-to-date, use at your own risk.
I will do what I can to keep this mod up-to-date ; if the mod is out-of-date for several months or more, I encourage you to contact me. If I don't reply, you're allowed to upload an updated version, if you credit me as its author and link to the original mod.
This mod is compatible with the latest patch (version 1.30).

This mod stills works, but not sure if this mod is the reason why I get exception errors through CMc because it needs to be updated

Hi Risiera!! I tested it in my game and it's working, except the serenade interaction doesn't show up anymore, nor the one when the Sims are inspired, which is short and cute.
I want to know if there's a way to take off autonomy but let the interactions show up, in case we want them to serenade every now and then. Thanks again
