Updated (just in case) for game version 1.61.15.1020.

It's me again

I proudly present to you one of the most requested mods ever:

No more autonomous kids network!!!

Did your adult sims always force their kids to watch the kids network when the kids themselves never wanted to watch it?
No more of that. It can still be turned on manually but the days where adult sims forced the child-sims to watch the kids
network are over.

It is an xml-tuning mod and it will conflict with any other mods that use the same resources,
especially custom-tv-channels that override the kids network channel.


The following resources have been modified:

Thank you! It was so annoying! Especially when they would watch it on their own when they don't even like it!

I guess the big question now is, do they end up watching movies instead? XD

I did this through MCCC's tuner module, disabling various actions that lead to sims watching the kids network (specifically any group oriented ones) but after doing that, they seemed to like watching movies, a lot, which causes issues of it's own with the various buffs that sims get. So added movies to the list as well before TV watching went back to normal when kids were present in the active household.

No! That was one worry of mine, too, since there is the movie "vortex kids" or something like that but nope, the adults leave the kids to reading their books without interruptions and the kids in my households prefer the comedy channel, anyways and none of my household members watches movies as regularily as they tried to watch the kids network.

OMG! Thank you so much!
This was cute and nice when my children were toddlers and kids, like "Aww, look at dad, he wants to watch kids' shows with his kiddies even though he hates them!"
But now they're teens and don't give ____ about those shows. And then it's just the parents getting negative moodlets from watching the kids' network by themselves even though they hate it. And then I get negative moodlets IRL because it's so annoying

Not anymore though! <3

Oh god! Thank you so much for this! I'm forever having to cancel out my lazy (but not childish!) sims tv watching, because they're watching the kids network, and they're just going to wind up with the bored moodlet because of it. "Well, duh! You turned the tv to that ridiculous channel! You don't even have kids. What were you thinking?!"
