Default Is there a mod that reduces or removes autonomous cleaning up on community lots?
I can;t find anything on this, but it's a bit frustrating taking out my sims to community lots and having them just compulsively clean up plates the entire time.. ESPECIALLY at restaurants!

Edit: Or maybe a mod that pushes non-playable sims to participate in cleaning, so my lone sim isn't the only one cleaning up the whole park every time.. Or really any possible solution for this

It may do more than you ask for, but that is one of the fixes in Simler90's Cleaning Mod.

ETA: Turns out Squinge has noautonomousdishes; last post says it's compatible for AL.

I will try out Squinge's mod first because it's simpler. I think this will help a lot with annoyances. Thank you!!

I use this mod by Simler90 and visitors on Community Lots still don't autonomously clean up after themselves, it's always the Sim(s) I sent to the lot. Someone else had the same thing in the comment section, so I guess that's how the mod is. Kinda wish I knew how to change it but ehh.

@Fyren5, unless I'm mistaken, they're not supposed to. You would use Cleaning Mod to make sure that only neat sims autonomous clean and to make sure that sims don't clean up on community lots. (Because often they're cleaning up at a restaurant or maybe you think it's silly for your sims to clean up after everyone when the lot gets reset anyway, etc.)

If you do want someone to autonomously clean up lots, then you want a different mod (and a different one from the kind the OP was asking for). I would suggest Sophie-David's Maintenance Free Dishwasher with NPC Worker (No More Dirty Lots) which basically is a dishwasher (invisible recolor available) that summons the Server NPC to clean the lot.

Even my sloppiest Sims love to clean up on community lots. I do remember that the aspiration and mood etc all affect the likelihood of them autonomously cleaning, and maybe I make my Sims too happy all the time. Ehh, either way, just watching my Sims and no visitors clean up on the community lots is getting irritating. My poor Sims.

I've used this before I think, and I could not get it to look right in my community lots (some of them are open areas with just a room for All-In-One bathrooms). I might try it again sometime. I've just grabbed Sim Wardrobe's little robot thingy that can zap away plates, and this little guy will look like a toy on the lot which is great.

Thank you for the help and suggestions, & sorry for hopping in. :D

There's also Midge the Tree's "Playables Don’t Clean Plates On Community Lots" mod found here. This one stops Sims from autonomously cleaning up plates everywhere except for on livable lots and businesses owned by the active family.
