Update 2014/12/20 This mod is fine to use with the December patch.

Here's an attempt to try to tone down the overly harsh Ask to Leave interaction. It seemed to me like the Sim asking the other to leave was annoyed and the guest looked embarrassed to have overstayed their welcome. Wouldn't have been so bad if it was based on relationship or emotion but it was the same for me every time. Seemed really bi-polar. Thanks for coming over for dinner. Now get off my property! We should be BFFs, like forever! Now get off my property! I love you so much! Be my girlfriend? Now get off my property!

This is a simple XML tuning mod that replaces the Ask to Leave interaction's animation with that used for the Good-Bye interaction you get when having a conversation off of the home lot. Normally, Ask To Leave plays an animation called Soc_Generic_NT_Complain_Succeed_basic, seems very ornery. The new animation played is Soc_Greet_NT_Wave_basic, which is the one used for Good-bye. Just smile and wave.

This mod changes the following XML resource and will conflict with other mods that also change this resource:

S4_E882D22F_00000000_00000000000032CA

This mod was built using Game Version 1.0.797.20, it should be compatible with all versions.

Would be nice to have both options as separate interactions, in an Ask To Leave menu.

"Begone!" would be the mean goodbye, "Goodbye" would be the nice goodbye.

I love the idea of this- but truthfully I'm downloading it because of the 'Smile and wave' picture tag.
I'm a penguins of Madagascar obsessive.

Yes! If the "Gurus" would just come over here and listen and react as quickly as all of you modders have been we probably wouldn't have a thread with 30+ pages of all the things about the game that suck. lol Thank you!

Glad to see it wasn't just me being overly sensitive, and other people had a problem with how harsh this interaction was.
Thank you for making this

Thank you SOOOOO much for this! There are some visitors I'd like to literally give the boot, but for most, the Ask To Leave was very harsh.

Thank you! I was always just like "well I want them to leave, but dang I don't want to KICK them out" so this is good. I thought I was just being weird but I see it bothered lots of people. :-)

This bothered me to no end, so I would just wait til they felt the need to leave on their own. THANK YOU for making this friendlier ask to leave.

The sims team keep complaining how animation is costly and time consuming yet they made the effort to create a completely unwanted animation when they could have jusr reused the original good bye animation like the one being used here.

I never understood why asking someone to leave was such a big deal. This mod fixes that. Thanks ReubenHood!

I always thought the "ask to leave" was so rude. Just a good-bye would have been better. Thanks for having manners and sharing :)
