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.

This has been one of the most annoying bugs in game so far. I can't believe EA/Maxis has not fixed it yet. It took a modder to take care of their mistakes. Thank you for fixing this.

Here is an IOU for my first born child in Thanks for this mod! This has been driving me CRAZY! Thank you sooooo much!

Though, my sims are also sitting down sometimes (not every time, but enough to be noticeable and annoying) when they after they gather up all the dishes to clean them, before they actually get to the sink, would this mod help with that?

This mod only helps with the Put Away Dish action (manually issued / Sims automatic).

At the moment I have not been able to simulate the CleanUp Sit Down issue. Will keep an eye out for this behaviour and investigate. Possibly involves one of the CleanUp tunings files.

Cheers.

Am testing the Put Away Books interaction. Just making sure it does not break anything else. Hopefully ready in a few days.

I just noticed this issue with sims sitting down before putting something away. It's a bug, right? Has it been reported?
