Have you ever noticed how when someone is abducted, all the sims in the house are woken up, queuestomped, and then left to their own autonomous devices rather than given something sensible to do? Well, as far as I can tell, this didn't happen prior to Free Time, when sims were actually directed to go to the telescope and make worried/distressed animations, sort of like what happens when someone returns from an abduction. But Free Time added a lot of new interactions to the telescope, and some BHAVs were renumbered, but the tree table wasn't properly updated to reference the right BHAVs. So what happens now is that all of the sims in your house are given a token indicating that they've discovered a new planet, and... that's it, actually.

I've fixed this, and now the intended BHAV is called and sims go to the telescope and make worryhands. I've also fixed it so that, as with the abduction return, sims that are asleep are not woken up, and extended the worried animations so that your sims are actually likely to be doing something that makes sense when you return from the very long abduction cinematic. Note that this was made with the cinematic in mind, and if you have it disabled the worryhands animation will probably last a very long time, but you should be able to cancel it like any other interaction. If you don't like that sims get queuestomped by this interaction, get abductionreactionfix-noqueuestomp instead, which will make it so that only sims who are acting autonomously will be queuestomped and everyone else will continue doing whatever they were doing before.

You shouldn't install this unless you have either Free Time, Apartment Life, or Mansions and Gardens Stuff.

This will probably conflict with anything that adds interactions to telescopes, or modifies how sims are called to respond to abductions. It modifies TTAB 0x81 in group 0x7FFEA664, and BHAVs 0x203A and 0x2036 in the same group.
