Hey, everyone!
I'm hope you're all having a great 2022. Let's begin it with new mods.

Annoyances disabler can help you prevent some things which you probably don't like in The Sims 3. If you tired to disable paperboys for every family or you don't like the free ingredients which game adds to your refrigerator, give this mod a try. Of course it has another functions too, just look at this pics:





Functionality
A list of all functions and tunings is located under the spoiler below. Yes, this mod has a bunch of tunings so that you can customize it for yourself if you know how to edit xml resources. To do this, you need S3PE or another similar program.



Version history
v1.1.4 - In this update mod learned to block pop-up with a suggestion to move to a new town and pop-ups about an upcoming birthday (disabled by default, as you can forget about it).
v1.1.3 - One notification less - the message about lifetime happiness points is now also blocked. Thanks to gamefreak130 for idea and code.
v1.1.2 - Mod now also disables the hairstyle notification in CAS.
v1.1.1 - Disabling the mascot intro is divided into two tunings - the first to control the «Check out your smartphone» dialog, the second to control the intro.
v1.1 - Important fix for traveling without NRaas Traveler (Older versions may cause infinite loading) + added features to disable a weather stones map tags, full moon warning, and ability to disable zombie spawner during a full moon.
v1.0.1 - Minor fix for festival notifications.
v1.0 - Initial release.

Compatibility and conflicts
I tested my mod on game version 1.67, but I think it will work fine on 1.63+ too.
If you don't have any EP, all functions associated with it just will be skipped.
No conflicts have been discovered yet.

Additional credits
Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 Community edition, dnSpy, S3PE.

@Jathom95, hello again, not every notification can be tuned without editing the core, which I try to avoid. However, I checked the code and found that the hairstyle notification can be disabled. I will make an update soon.

The only one of these that I want is the disabling zombies. I don't know how to edit things, is there something else I can use to disable zombies without disabling the other things? And don't say Master Controller bc I haven't been able to get the zombie disabler on that to work.

This looks very promising! Any chance that you might be able to disable the pop-ups telling you that it's going to be X's birthday in a few days so you should throw a party, and the ones on their actual birthday that tell you it's X's birthday?

Hi. Do you mean pop-ups that pause the game? I don't play often right now, but I'll try to look into it later.

@the evil writer, well, I probably found how to disable the pop-ups, but i'm not sure if it works correctly. I made it as a separate mod, can you test it?

It seems to work. I'll report back after playing a bit more if I learn otherwise, but so far it's at least avoided the "today's X birthday!" pop-up on an aging up sim in the family I'm playing, nor have I seen a birthday soon pop-up for her younger brother who'll age up in 2 days.

Edit: several Sim-days later it's still working great. Thanks so much!

THANK YOU for this xD
so many ridiculous notifications and events and annoying things in this game lol
ESPECIALLY thank you for having the option to disable the time portal intro!! I actually removed ITF entirely at some point because it was so annoying; now I can install it again without having to worry about that!
