Recently decided to revisit the idea of the no annoying idles mod, since the one by claudiasharon - No more annoying idles!, is outdated, not having been updated since patch 1.26. For the most part, this is an update to that mod, though I really have no desire to list each of them separately. Sorry, I'm just not that dedicated.

It addresses Buff, Mood, and Trait Idles that have simply become annoying, most of them are the same as those listed in claudiasharon's version.
All Excitable, Crybaby, Retch, Hothead Idles are gone - Traits: Neat, Party Animal, Handy, Martial Arts, and Artistic. There may be more added, at some point, especially if there is alot of comments for it.

edits the Idles.xml from Gameplaydata.package and will conflict with any other which does the same. Needs only base game, additional idles added with other EP's, and created with patch 1.63

stevebo77 - No Foot Tapping While Waiting For Clear Route!
Esmeralda - No making stupid faces when idle
Nukael - No Motive Fail tantrum or whining

Do you happen to know where it comes from? I've been asking around because I used to have it in my game til I had to reinstall. I can't find it anywhere!

Hermione: Stop moving, both of you. This is devil's snare! You have to relax. If you don't, it'll only kill you faster!
Ron: Kill us faster? Oh, now I can relax!

Thanks. The one that really annoys me is when fairies stand there and play with fairy dust i their hands!

I write sims stories, and when I'm posing a group of sims for a shot it drives me to distraction when each of them are going through the whole gamut of idles one after the other like a Mexican wave. I waste so much time waiting for them to just stand still! So this mod will be a great relief. Thanks.

I had to remove this mod because my sims' coworkers weren't showing up for work. I removed it and they started meeting coworkers.

My sims still do a lot of the animations even with this mod. They also take a long time to leave for work.
