Moderator note 2015-12-11: I posted an update for/from 1.13 in the comments.


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:


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

I wanted to slap my Sim the very first time I asked someone to leave.
I thought he might have just not had a good time with the person.

There's one new test in the xml with GTW, looks as for owned retail lots. I would update the file.

Attached is a version created from 1.13. The older version looks like it would cause some misbehaviour in social groups (I haven't tested that, but since it's a very straightforward mod, updating was easier than testing =P).

how does this mod affect the person being asked to leave to react?
do they still act so embarrassed about it?

They never acted embarrassed in my game. What this does is exactly what it says in the description: "Replaces the Ask to Leave interaction's animation with that used for the Good-Bye interaction".
