No KickyBag!

Few things in Sim-watching can be more annoying than the "more addictive than crack (to Sims)" game of KickyBag. It seems like they want to play this stupid game every 30 seconds. Well, they play no longer! Let me stress here that I do not consider this technically a "hack", and if you're the type of person that worries about those things then there's no need to concern yourself.

That being said, you should know this: With this package file I have "turned off" KickyBag completely. Sims no longer play it, and you can no longer ask a Sim to play. Well, in my book that's a more than fair tradeoff for getting rid of this annoying game.

Enjoy!

Moving to Testing Ground -> Global Hacks. Please advise if it is an Object Hack instead.

You should just disable the autonomous kicky bag. They just still play the game only at the player's command.

Does this work with Nightlife? Please say it does. To hell with waiting for a reply, I'm downloading and installing it anyway. Kicky Bag is as bad as a full-on game bug. It's the most annoying thing in any Sim game ever. :mad:

Thank you for this. :wave: :baloons:

I would love to see a mod that disables autonomous kicky bag completely, but still lets us tell Sims to play it. Same with pillow fighting. It's RARE for me to want my Sims to play these stupid things, but every once in a blue moon I do (like to fulfil a want or something.)

I hate kicky bag with such a passion. The damn sims! I leave them alone for just a bit and they are down in the basement playing. It freaking drives me crazy! Thank you so much for this.

Can it work with NL?

Thank you for this !!

I had even quit playing the sims cause I was so sick of watching sims sit and kick a ball every time I got a group of them together. :mad:

I'd make a nice party area with food, drinks and dancing just to watch 3/4 of them standing kicking a ball for sim hours and I hated it ! :shrug:

I just don't understand why Maxis doesn't ever have in options the ability to enable or disable the different actions sims can do like that.

What may be cute a time or 2 , a couple months of game play and the cuteness wears off in my oppion on many of the things Maxis adds for sims to do like kicky bag. :2cents:

So again, Thank you greatly for this !! :nod:

what was even more annoying than them playing it, was them trying to manoeuvre round furniture, complaining like hell and then playing through sofas and so forth, facing the wrong way most of the time. utterly stupid. thanks targa

Thanks for both the no kicky and the no pillow fights. This is great that I don't have them anymore. Just one more thing, can you make one to stop the Upunch me I punch you, game?

Do you think you can make 'no red hands' and 'no punch you, punch me'?

That would be truly amazing. I don't think I can count the number of times that my Sims have started to play either Red Hands or Kicky Bag, unbidden, and just done that instead of anything even slightly worthwhile and some of the actions that I tell them to do. Punch Me - Punch U is less frequent, but just as annoying to see.

As for teens hanging out: I don't mind it, but it annoys me when they're SUPPOSED to be rivals or siblings (the kind that hate each other, not the 'built-in best friend' kind) and all they do is hang out, chatting away like they've been friends forever.
