Mod note: newer version available at http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=585104

Due to time constraints I can no longer keep this mod updated and working properly. I don't recommend downloading it until I can find someone willing to take over the mod and update it to work with the latest patches

Info:

Don't you hate it when your Sim keeps playing around with his or her phone? This is annoying enough in real life!
This mod disables the autonomous actions, your Sim will no longer automatically text, browse the web, share photo's, play games, make pranks calls and ok I'm not going to write it all down, long story short, they'll stop using their phones all the time.
(This is also great for movie making!)



Install instructions:

Make a new folder in the Mods folder (Located in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods) and name it unpackedmod.
In the Mods folder, open the file Resource.cfg with Notepad and copy and paste this text into the file: DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate and save. (Do not use Save As!)

Now simply place the .package file you've downloaded from this page in your Mods folder.

Mod info:

This is an XML tuning mod. I changed the following XML files:

phone_BrowseWebsites_AutonomousOnly
phone_Text_Autonomous
sim_ShowFunnyVideo_QuickSocial
phone_PlayGames_AutonomousOnly
phone_PlayGames
phone_PlayGames_Child
phone_PrankCall
mixer_social_GoingOutSocials_SharePhoto

The allow_autonomous values have been set to 'false'

Conflicts:

This XML tuning mod will conflict with any mod that uses and or changes the values in the following files:

phone_BrowseWebsites_AutonomousOnly
phone_Text_Autonomous
sim_ShowFunnyVideo_QuickSocial
phone_PlayGames_AutonomousOnly
phone_PlayGames
phone_PlayGames_Child
phone_PrankCall
mixer_social_GoingOutSocials_SharePhoto
