Game Requirements and Compatibility

- This mod is compatible for Version (Update 06/11/2015)

Mod Description

Are you tired of your Sims always going to the next close computer to browse the web, play games or do other silly stuff? Then this mod is for you!

06/17/2015: I've uploaded an updated version of the mod, please disregard the old version. I missed a few Programming and Hacking interactions that were still be used autonomously. Now I think I got them all. I visited the library and I did not see one Sim using the Computers. Instead they were actually reading and talking! YES!

This mod overrides the following resources:

The mod will conflict with any other mod that edits the same files, such as:
MadameButterfly's: No Auto Computer Games, No Auto Troll teh Forums and,
simmythesim's Faster Social or Relationship gain from chatting on the computer

Additional Credits:
GIMP 2.8 for thumbnail
Sims 4 Studio for extracting the XML tuning files & creating the package file.
JustAnotherSimsFan (JASF) for testing the mod!

Thanks for making this! I feel like the sims' constant distraction towards the computer really interferes with gameplay. However, after a while of playing, my sim married one who wanted to be an author, and I found that when I clicked on the computer I didn't have the Write... / Genre Book interaction. With more testing, none of my sims could write books. I stripped out all my mods and reintroduced them one by one, and the problem was this one. Maybe from something one of the game updates changed recently?

Out of date.. If you use this, your sims will no longer be able to write books or mod games. Also it does not stop your sim from trolling the forums on a tablet, and they will do so on a computer if you let them. I have all game packs.
