Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
2014-03-15 - Compatible with game version 1.67. No changes.

Simple. I think traits should affect what sims can do or not do, not what players can do or not do. So it stinks to deny players something that simply consists of a succession of things they can do.

Just put it in your mod folder. The Clean House interaction will show up when you click on the ground if something cleanable is present on the lot. This interaction is not a simple clone of the neat trait interaction, the handling of dirty and clean laundry is vastly improved. The picture below shows from top left to bottom right the handling of laundry in chronological order.
As you might or might not see, the sim (let's pretend she does) recognizes clean and dry laundry on the clothesline so she gets that first. Next she gets the clean and wet laundry from the washing machine and puts it on the now free clothesline. Finally she gathers all dirty laundry and puts it in the now free washing machine.

Additionally, the interaction has a few fixes for bugs in the original clean house interaction. I don't want to brag, but these are terribly stupid bugs and completely unnecessary too. You guys have probably only seen the neat trait Clean House interaction drop from the queue without doing anything, but I have seen where and why the original code literally spills its guts. Since this mod is now superior to the original interaction, I decided to stomp the original interaction and make the interaction from this mod available to neat sims, too. Mind you, this is nothing persistent. This mod doesn't change persistent data at all.

Supported for game version 1.67. Should work with game versions from 1.31 upwards, though.

Oh, joyous joy! This mod is fully localized. Not because I learned the 0x1A supported languages overnight, but because I simply used the already existing strings. How neat is that? Yes, I'm sorry for that. Where's the "Bad Puns!" jar again?

possible conflicts
This is a scripting mod and as such the possibility for conflicts with other mods, no matter what kind, is next to non-existant. I can't think of any kind of mod which could possibly interfere with this mod.

Please respect that I support my mods but not mods or even custom content in general, not in my upload threads anyway and certainly not if you ask me by PM. I will always try to find and squish bugs, therefore I appreciate bug reports. If one of my mods isn't working for you, please at least try to ensure that it's a failure of my mod before you ask for help. You'll find the link to the detailed CC Basics tutorial when you click on the Install Instructions tab. I am a compassionate guy, but please understand that I can only muster so much endurance to address issues completely unrelated to my mods.

Before you remove this mod, please make sure that no sim is currently using the clean house interaction. If you don't do so, you may be unable to load your savegame.

Might lead to a serious case of squished brain. Your game should be safe, though.

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
