Don't you just hate it when your sims prioritize their computer over everything? Ironic as it may be, it's a huge annoyance. I couldn't find a version for 1.67, so I decided to make one myself.

So, everything is pretty straightforward. This mod disables autonomous interactions on the computer, such as playing chess, browsing the web, playing computer games, and chatting with random strangers on the internet. Disabled interactions for the holo computer is included as well but Into the Future is not required to use this mod.

This mod will conflict with any mod that changes the following ITUN files:
BrowseWeb_Computer 0x00000000 0x7F021F33E943C9CD
BrowseWeb_HoloComputer 0x00000000 0x8857847F01AC9401

ChatRandom_Computer 0x00000000 0xAA843DDB79130ECE
ChatRandom_HoloComputer 0x00000000 0x500DF878FD79C202


This mod may conflict with NRaas Retuner, as it also changes tuning.

Thank you for this! You don't have to worry about a Basegame-compatible version though, because the resource will simply not be used if the person doesn't have ITF (I don't have it)

Interesting, I got a mod with this exact functionality off SimsAsylum not a week ago. Does that mod not function properly on 1.67? Also @sweetdevil I'm surprised you don't have ITF, I could definitely see you have a field day with the wacky outfits in it.

Thank you for this! It's super annoying when sims do this all the time.

Does this work for real life v.22.0 too?

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Does this also works with the portable laptop? I always make my sims carry a laptop everywhere (easier to use NRaas cheats) so when they aren't doing anything they'll always pull it out :/

I wouldn't mind sims using the computer automatically if they would actually choose something that improves their skills, but nope. Gotta "play computer games" and "chat with someone." So glad this was made. Thank you for this mod!

I've used this mod for a year or two, and this is really my favorite next to Nraas.
