Broken (1.19. - 2016 Jun 3)
- This mod is no longer compatible with update 1.19 and above.

Obsolete (1.17. - 2016 Apr 23)
- This mod might not be required for the latest patch, if the problem has indeed been fixed, according to the official patch notes
- Kindly feedback if you still have the bug after the latest patch.

No change for latest patch (1.16. - 2016 Mar 22)
- No change to mod file name (the 1_13 mod files). Can be reused on latest update.
- This mod might not be required for the latest patch, if the problem does not occur in your game.

Update 2015 Dec 24
- Added PutAwayBooksAutonomy.zip.
- This file fixes the Put Away Book action, while Sim is autonomous (meaning Put Away action not issued by Player).

Original Description
Would you like your Sims to ALWAYS SIT DOWN after picking up their dish (or book), when told to PUT AWAY ?

No ? Then today is your lucky day. This is a small fix to instruct your Sims to get off their butts and just PUT AWAY the dish (or book).

Tested for Put Away Dishes and Put Away Books (Manually issued and Autonomously performed).

Note : Use one or both zip files, depending on which bug you observe in your game.



Recommendation for new Game Updates:
- Remove the mod files before launching an origin-updated game, to confirm if bug still exist.
- Reapply the mods to updated game, to see if it fixes the bug.
- If reapplying the mods cause some other weird behaviour, cease use.
- Post a reply here. Wait for mod update.

Thank you! This problem was annoying -__- I'm surprised EA hasn't fixed it yet. Then again, actually no, I am not surprised.

Use one or both zip files, depending on which bug you observe in your game.

Both ZIPs contain different tuning files, will not clash with each other.

I'm not sure if you can add this or not but can you make it so kids put their homework books away? There was a mod on here but it appears not to be working anymore.

I will keep an eye out for this bug, apparently all my Sims' kids are being obedient and never leave their homework lying around.

I have both of your fixes installed in my game, but I just saw my elder sim autonomously clean up her dish but she still sat down before she picked it up.

Please respect elderly Sims, let them rest before doing housework.

But seriously, Sitting down before Picking Up to Clean is a totally differently bug, not covered by this fix.

This mod only fix Put Away Actions (final destination is the Fridge, or Bookshelf). It will eliminate them sitting down AFTER picking up the dish, not before.

Your issue involves Pick Up dishes to Clean (final destination is the Kitchen Sink), which is not covered by this mod.

Putting a dish away (in the fridge) is not the same as cleaning them up, though. It's my understanding the mod is for the actions like putting away, not cleaning.

Oh, this is heavenly. I included "reading" as an activity for one of my clubs, and they left books everywhere. I had to watch my poor sim sit down 20 times as she put away the books. I finally gave up and put them away myself. Thank you!

I apologise for asking this question , I just didn't understand the answers you provided . If I click for my sims to put away the dishes, they will sit down then put it away. Same with the books. They will pick up the book, sit down somewhere, then put the book they are holding. They do this for every single book/stack of dishes or one dish from another sim that they clean up. Does your mod fix this issue? Many thanks in advance, and I'm sorry for not understanding it fully.

Yes, the mod fixes this problem exactly, and not an ounce more.

I did a test in my game. I noticed that the sims ONLY do the sit action when they are already standing. Like if they clean up/put away a dish/book/etc. from a standing position then the sit bug occurs. Now if they start these actions from a sitting position, the bug will not occur. They will clean up as normal. So does this mod fix these issues from a standing position? I apologize for making you repeat yourself, if it does.

With the bug, even when starting from sitting, they would still sit down when told to put away a dish/book located on another table.

I used this and my sims would either just dump their books on the table or wouldn't put them down and take them to bed for woohoo or read on the toilet.

First I would like to confirm whether this mod works on a NEW GAME ? If it breaks, then the problem is due to compatibiliy with your latest game update.

Otherwise, it is most likely due to old save game data messing up new game code, spilling over to other actions.

In your case, seems like your Sims cannot find a path to the bookshelf, can you confirm (using the same Savegame), what does your Sim do when issued Put Away command, WITHOUT this mod ?
