Works with Patch: 9/3/20 <-- Changes needed

It was brought to my attention that autonomy wasn't the same. Here's my testing and conclusion:
I did a quick test. I took everything out of my mod folder and only put in a file to stop the idle chatting. There's nothing in there but base game everything. I created a bran new game with a new family and left them go and the welcome wagon showed up. No one talked to anyone on their own. If I started the conversation they would chat and chat with all sorts of interactions. So my conclusion to the test, not having autonomy with the mod isn't because of the Personality mod but something in the game since I didn't have the mod in and only stopped the Idle Chat. The idle chat makes them chat which gets the conversation going which is why the other interactions appear occasionally which is why when you remove the idle chat nothing seems to happen. Which is also why it appears to be the fault of the mod because it stops the idle chat which in actuality it isn't the mod at all. I hope this is something that gets fixed in the game as I am also one that prefers to let me sims make their own decisions from time to time. I'm sorry that I was not able to have any better news. Good news is the mod is actually fine. Just start the conversation with something small and all the things that the mod creates can still happen.

PANDORA SIMS stole one of my mods! Please read spoiler to see what you can do!
This mod will bring more personality to your sims!

There have been 2 other mods that I have found so far that do about the same thing, however, they have not been updated in a long time. The mods are: PTME Emotional Overcharge by FlorainPTME which hasn't been updated since July 2016. There have been comments stating that it is broke and causes problems with Dine Out. You can find that mod HERE if you want to take a look at it. The other mod Autonomous Interactions by weebl_101 also has not been updated since Jan 2016 and also has reports of it being broken. You can find that mod HERE

I don't mind if you make changes to any of these files in any of my mods as long as it is PERSONAL USE ONLY

Known Issues:

This mod is a work in process. What does that mean? Means more additions could be added at any time so check back often! For example: Pets. After that pack comes out I plan on playing around with it and maybe a new add-on will be created specifically for pets just like it was for our lively toddlers!

This mod is going to add excitement to your game! I removed the idle chat that sims used to do. What that was, was sims would randomly go up to someone and just "Chat". Just like it says. The sims learned nothing. They did nothing that was from their moods or traits. By removing the idle chat, sims now choose an actual interaction. Now they will ask about day, kiss, tell jokes, be mean. Your enemy sim at any given time could come up to your sim and beat you up!

Interactions are based off of several factors. If a sim is evil they are more likely to do mean interactions or if they are romantic they like to choose romance over mean interactions. Their moods will play a factor in how the sims act. If they are extremely mad they are bound to yell at anyone and who ever near by. They are less likely to do friendly interactions during a hostile moment. All interactions used are listed under their add-on or flavor.

Common Questions: <--Please read before asking a question.

Since this mod is not a script mod, in-game option menus isn't something I know how to create. So instead I have went with Addon's. Any of these can be added to the main mod or used by themselves.

Restricted Romance

Sims Learn Info<--This can be used separate or with any of the Add-ons or flavors below.

Personality Please! Cats & Dogs

Personality Please! Woohoo-TryForBaby

Toddlers!<--This can be used alone, or with any gender preference add-on or the main personality mod!
