This mod removes the red frame that appears when the game is paused. There is a similar mod that makes the pause frame images transparent, but mine prevents the frame from creating, so clicking the top-left corner won't unpause the game.

Conflicts
This mod conflicts (mostly indirectly) with mods that change the pause frame. Don't use them together.

This and the other mod you linked to will be so handy for me when taking screen shots. That red border is so annoying to trim off.

It will make it so much easier to make screenshots. But how do you know that the game is paused except that sims aren't moving?

The pause symbol under your Sim's bigger UI picture flashes red and you'll hear the pause noise if you're playing with the sound on.

Christmas came early! I thought I was the only one that bugged -- my kids play with my mouse when I'm afk and always unpause my game. Many good sims have died...

I usually don't take many in-game pictures, but I've found that the few times I do the red frame is very annoying. And the unpause button is not useful for me anyway.
So maybe thanks to this mod I might take more pictures in the future :D
