If you’re like me and hate being bombarded with those repetitive signed on/signed off notifications while your Sim is chatting on the computer, you’ll want this mod.

All this does is stop the “$Neighbor signed on.” and “$Neighbor signed off.” notifications from being run in the “Chat - Signed On/Off Dialog” BHAV found in Group 0x7FF48EB4. Any other mod that utilizes this BHAV will conflict.

The process of Sims getting on and offline is completely unaffected. Also, this is global so it should work with all computers, Maxis and custom. I created this with the Ultimate Collection but it should be compatible with just the base game.

This is my very first upload *confetti* so let me know if you run into any problems. It’s such a simple tweak I doubt there will be any issues but regardless, let me know.

As for terms of use:

• You may not reupload unaltered content of mine anywhere
• You may upload altered content of mine as long as you give me credit
• No paysites or AdFly links

Happy Simming!
