Hey! Don’t Do That!

Game Mods Miscellaneous

Last Mod Update: Oct. 30, 2023 [V1.02] – See the Changelog section for more details.

Short Description:

This mod makes it possible to forbid sims from autonomously interacting with one object. They will only not interact with one specific object you’ve chosen. For example, you can stop them from autonomously practicing debate in front of the bathroom’s mirror while letting them to continue doing so in front of the bedroom’s mirror.

At this moment, you’ll only be able to forbid some interactions using the following objects:

  • Fridge;
  • Mirror;
  • Computer;
  • Sink;
  • TV;
  • Grill;
  • Stereo.

Detailed Description:

Overrides, Compatibilities, and Dependencies:

This mod doesn’t override anything. So, it’s (probably) compatible with any other mod.

You don’t need any Kits, Expansion, Game, or Stuff Packs to use this mod.

If you install a complementary mod package of an expansion you don’t have, you will not get random preferences linked to that expansion even after installing it.

IMPORTANT: This mod requires Scumbumbo’s XML Injector Script Mod to work. If you don’t have it, you can download it at his Memorial webpage (www.scumbumbomods.com/xml-injector). You only need the script mod (the “.package” file isn’t necessary).


At this moment, this mod is only available in the following languages:[list][*]English

So, when using the game in another language, some parts (that use text from the game) may appear in the desired language. Still, some text (those included by this mod) will appear in English.

Feel free to translate this mod. If you contact me, I can put a link to your translation on this page.

How to install:

Just put the “.package” file in the mods folder (generally at this address …/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods).

If you want the control autonomy buttons to be hidden under shift click + “testingcheats true”, you should only download only the zip file with that mark.
