So, I just discovered the joys of clay molding -- not only is playing with it fun for your Sims, different creations give different moodlets! That's so cool, right?

Well, it was... until the clay sent out some sort of siren call to every single Sim on my property. There were practically queues of Sims built up to play with the stuff, and it ruined the fun little sculptures. Boo!

After a quick Google search, I didn't find a mod like to disable autonomous clay fussing. Determined to get my cute sculptures, I rolled up my sleeves and gave modding a shot for the first time. Lo and behold, I made a little tuning file to turn off molding the clay autonomously! (+2 to Confidence )

This mod only disables autonomous interactions. You can still click on the clay and force the Sim to reshape it.

I tested for a few Sim hours and even threw a birthday party -- at one point, there were ten clay lumps scattered around my house. Not a single Sim touched them. If you have any problems, of course, please let me know.

I am very new to modding, and as such, I have no idea what this might conflict with, if it conflicts with anything at all. All I did was a simple tweak to the ClayBlob_Mold tuning file (resource ID: E882D22F!00000000!0000000000003367.ClayBlob_Mold), specifically the n="allow_autonomous" line.
