Updated (finally, right?) for the changes made from the Showtime expansion. It now should completely turn off requests for autographs and cell phone pictures from other Sims.


This mod stops other Sims from wanting to take cell phone pictures of your Sim, thereby stomping your action queue. I've never understood why it stomps the queue like that, but I found it irritating, so decided to remove the autonomous action completely.

This mod changes the TakeCellPhonePhotoSingleSim_Sim XML file, changing cell phone picture taking to non-autonomous only. I've never seen a user-directed option to take a cell phone picture, but I left that alone. It's only the autonomous action that is modified. It should not conflict with any other mod.

This mod was made with patch 1.50. I haven't tested it with 1.55. Since this XML file only affects when Sims take cell phone pictures, unless this changed in 1.55, there should be no conflict. There will probably be no conflict with later patches, unless something changes about the way cell phone pictures are taken.
