View Full Version : Newspaper Subscription
22nd Apr 2012, 2:13 AM
So, lately, I've been getting ridiculously annoyed at the newspaper. But I don't want to disable it completely. So I was wondering if there's a mod that makes it necessary to "subscribe" to a newspaper, like the Free Time magazines, before it starts getting delivered. Or at least ones that gives an option to disable it individually by household.

I just hide the paper somewhere on the lot that my sims can't reach until I get 5 of them built up. If you have 5 on the lot, the paper stops getting delivered to that lot. I've heard you can stick them in a sim's inventory as well but I haven't done that so I'm not sure if it would still work if that sim wasn't on the lot when the paper got delivered.

Not heard of such a mod.
If you put them in the inventory, the sim is likely to read the newspaper on the toilet or sitting in a chair.
Hiding them is an option too (four of them will most likely go brown and unusable, though)

Its 3, not 5.

You could get the Visitor Controller from Simbology and ban the paper carrier on a house-by-house basis.

Oops, my mistake. Guess I should pay more attention to what day the pop up shows up

I have a mod "djautorecyclingnewspaper." With this mod, the newspaper disappears when the new one is delivered. So, the newspapers don't pile up. If you're interested, here's the link: http://forum.jfade.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21.

My lot has 20 rotted newspapers on it.XD
