Mod to restrict passage through Very Mysterious Shelving

In my game, whenever someone becomes a supernatural being, they try to understand what's happening by reading a magazine about Paranormal. Sometimes, their close ones read too, to be supportive and better cope themselves. But it's always bothered me how everyone could pass through the supposedly magical door, even if they couldn't otherwise use it as an autonomous route.

Indeed it's such a small detail that to the seasoned modders it might have seemed unworthy of attention. But i couldn't find this anywhere, and having made the effort*, perhaps someone else would like it as well.

*Really it just took some digging about what to pass as parameter for the Witch - Is Witch? check. Because it first needed to be set to new format, and only then edited with neighbour ID.

What resource it modifies:
The Guardian BHAV called Interaction - Secret Door - TEST used by the Very Mysterious Shelving (last in the list of bookcases).
Of course, if you have another mod that edits this particular function, they will clash, so you must either choose, or try to reunite them.

What changes:
After the original check, it additionally looks at:
- the active Sim's Paranormal interest -- over half returns true, but if it's low it gives your Sim another chance by:
- checking for witchiness.

What doesn't change but is included:
The pie menu text itself doesn't change, but i've included the TTAB and TTA so that it's easy to make your own edits. It could become "You shall NOT pass" versus "You may pass". Or "This way to the crypt". You get the idea

Enjoy .

Grateful to SimPe, most especially for the resource finder.
