This mod requires the Bust the Dust Kit. Tested up to 1.81.72
This mod adds new interactions to let you control the dust level on any floor of your home. If you're visiting a messy friend you can even clean up their lot in a snap! Interactions are immediate and will not require your sim to be on the targeted floor.

Update Notes
v6 (2021-08-08)
  • Confirmed compatibility with 1.81.72 (Nov 2 Patch)
  • Added French translations by Candyman
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the floor your active Sim was on to be changed while changing the dust level of another floor.
v5 (2021-07-22)
  • Updated to support patch 1.77.131
v4 (2021-07-01)
  • Fixed interactions to only appear when clicking on the floor inside a building.
  • Added Italian translations thanks to Rahl81
v3 (2021-06-19)
  • Zipped with different method to prevent macOS hidden files that were causing issues for Windows players
  • Added Chinese translations thanks to GreenOnionC

Installation
Place both the .package file and the .ts4script within your mods folder. Both are required to inject the interactions to the terrain object.

Mod Conflicts
This mod does not override any existing resources therefore any mods that alter the way the dust system works, for example the speed at which dust accumulates, will NOT conflict with this mod.

Thanks, but the file was corrupted for some unknown reason so I had to remove it. As soon as I removed I had no more problems loading the sims 4.

Thank you so much, this is so useful when the sim I have doesn't have enough space to vacuum a certain floor but I enjoy the rest of the gameplay, or I want to play a slob.

I'd delete the "__MACOSX" folder, though, it can cause issues for PC users, sorry to have to say.

Did you delete the "__MACOSX" file? That's not for a Windows computer and can cause issues if kept.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I have released v3 that was zipped using a different method so those macOS files should no longer be there.

omg thank you...I'm def installing this....the dust was annoying....I have 6 live in butlers and 3 live in maids and still my house was covered in dust,...dust bunnies were everywhere and multiplying like bunnies do....I ended up turning the dust off in my game settings because that's all my sim did for 24/7 was sweep. Now with the latest "patch" they broke their own stuff and even with the dust turned off in my game settings my sims's house is covered in dust again and dust bunnies everywhere, at least with the latest patch I can go into build buy mode and delete the dust and bunnies but still annoying.....so thank you ever so much for this mod as it will save me a lot of time and effort.

Thank you for this great mod!

Can I ask if in the future there will be an option to disable completely the dust bunnies/fiends (not the dust) and the audio sting when dust levels change? It's ok if not I'm just curious because I tried to use this mod also together with noaudionobunnyfiend mods by Zero or Lotharihoe but bunnies/fiends and audio stings are still present for some reason.

My interactions use a custom loot, so they won't share the same features as other mods that override. But I'd like to add customizations to be able to have the same capabilities!
