Works with Patch: 9/21/21 <-- Changes needed

Restricted Romance is NOT broke or outdated This has been checked with the patch listed above. Just because a mod hasn't been changed in a while doesn't make it outdated or broke. Thank you.

It was brought to my attention that autonomy wasn't the same. Here's my testing and conclusion:
I did a quick test. I took everything out of my mod folder and only put in a file to stop the idle chatting. There's nothing in there but base game everything. I created a bran new game with a new family and left them go and the welcome wagon showed up. No one talked to anyone on their own. If I started the conversation they would chat and chat with all sorts of interactions. So my conclusion to the test, not having autonomy with the mod isn't because of the Personality mod but something in the game since I didn't have the mod in and only stopped the Idle Chat. The idle chat makes them chat which gets the conversation going which is why the other interactions appear occasionally which is why when you remove the idle chat nothing seems to happen. Which is also why it appears to be the fault of the mod because it stops the idle chat which in actuality it isn't the mod at all. I hope this is something that gets fixed in the game as I am also one that prefers to let me sims make their own decisions from time to time. I'm sorry that I was not able to have any better news. Good news is the mod is actually fine. Just start the conversation with something small and all the things that the mod creates can still happen.
NO LONGER AN ISSUE

PANDORA SIMS stole one of my mods! Please read spoiler to see what you can do!
This mod will bring more personality to your sims!

There have been 2 other mods that I have found so far that do about the same thing, however, they have not been updated in a long time. The mods are: PTME Emotional Overcharge by FlorainPTME which hasn't been updated since July 2016. There have been comments stating that it is broke and causes problems with Dine Out. You can find that mod HERE if you want to take a look at it. The other mod Autonomous Interactions by weebl_101 also has not been updated since Jan 2016 and also has reports of it being broken. You can find that mod HERE

I don't mind if you make changes to any of these files in any of my mods as long as it is PERSONAL USE ONLY
Continue Reading:
Any pack listed if you do NOT have it, this mod will NOT give you those interactions or items.

Updated: 10/19/21<--Keep updated with changes!
Always remove old files before adding new!

This does not requre Parenthood or Vampire Packs. If you do not have those, then those interactions or adjustments WILL NOT be in your game.

Things you will find in this mod: <--Will also include any new items I'm currently working on for the next update.
  • Most of the romance is restricted till higher romance levels.
  • Sims might learn traits and careers from Deep Conversation
  • More alien interactions
  • Cats & Dogs with Personality!
  • More Autonomy
  • No Idle Chat
  • Restrictions on romance to help with cheating sims
  • More autonomy for toddlers
  • Interactions based on Traits, Moods, Conversations & Relationships
  • Toddlers acting more like their traits
  • Restrictions on woohoo and try for baby

Why mean interactions are now separate:
No matter how many times I repeat it, it still always seems to be pinned back to this mod as the culprit. ANY mood or relationship mod is fine to use with this mod but you have to expect strange things to happen. Increased mean sims is one of the biggest issues. No matter what I do I can not stop this from happening if you have these types of mods in the mix so I have decided, for those of you who want to use SOL, Better Romance or any other of those kinds of mods, to remove the mean interactions from the main mod and put them into a separate downloadable file. These interactions are only the ones listed below in the Mean category. Continue to let me know how your sims are acting in your game but PLEASE, if there is an issue on how and interaction is acting, test it with ONLY this mod and not any other mod for accurate results. Thank you.

Known Issues:

WIP
This mod is a work in process. What does that mean? Means more additions could be added at any time so check back often! For example: Pets. After that pack comes out I plan on playing around with it and maybe a new add-on will be created specifically for pets just like it was for our lively toddlers!

This mod is going to add excitement to your game! I removed the idle chat that sims used to do. What that was, was sims would randomly go up to someone and just "Chat". Just like it says. The sims learned nothing. They did nothing that was from their moods or traits. By removing the idle chat, sims now choose an actual interaction. Now they will ask about day, kiss, tell jokes, be mean. Your enemy sim at any given time could come up to your sim and beat you up!

Interactions are based off of several factors. If a sim is evil they are more likely to do mean interactions or if they are romantic they like to choose romance over mean interactions. Their moods will play a factor in how the sims act. If they are extremely mad they are bound to yell at anyone and who ever near by. They are less likely to do friendly interactions during a hostile moment. All interactions used are listed under their add-on or flavor.

Common Questions: <--Please read before asking a question.

Since this mod is not a script mod, in-game option menus aren't something I know how to create. So instead I have went with Addon's. Any of these can be added to the main mod or used by themselves.

ADD-ONs:
Restricted Romance


Sims Learn Info<--This can be used separately or with any of the Add-ons or flavors below.


Personality Please! Cats & Dogs


Personality Please! Woohoo-TryForBaby

Toddlers!<--This can be used alone, or with any gender preference add-on or the main personality mod!

This is where all the magic happens with this mod!
Personality Please!


Cimblr's Confess Attraction Fix mod COMPATIBILITY:

You can look in more detail at these changes that were added to this mod in their mod description Found HERE All the changes they have done in their mod are now included in this mod. These changes are credited to Cimblr as they are not mine.

Any mod that changes the same XML files will conflict!

For having so many personality options, they really don't show it ingame! Can't wait to test this and see some more flavor in the world!

The name of the mod alone instantly made me know I'd be putting it in my game. I'll definitely check over the mods I already have later, take any out that could conflict (hopefully, for I am a hopeless moron), and give this a try! Thank you so much for taking the time to contribute to the game like this.

THANK YOU! I always got annoyed that my sims were always so damn nice and cheerful all the time, even when they were angry.
The sims 4 has interesting emotions, but they were never fully used. Will this mod conflict with Emotional inertia?

Doesn't look like it since that mod changes moods and buffs and this one changes interactions.

Since mc command is a script mod I don't think it will since it doesn't seem to conflict now. I have mc command in my game also and both seem to run fine. One way to know is by trying

Default Thank you
Thank you for this mod. I've been using it for the past couple hours and I really like it. My one complaint though is being randomly taken to the travel screen during gameplay. My household doesn't even know the Landgraabs and twice I've been automatically taken to the map screen with them. If we could have a flavour that didn't have this feature, that would be super!

I have been trying this out for the past hour or so and it does make a difference - a good one too. The sims stay and chat to each other a lot longer and display much more independence. I laughed when my rich girl asked her visiting, and much poorer, brother for a loan. He gave it to her too. Sims will be sims eh This mod is making the game a lot of fun.

That's happening bc they are asking who ever in the group it shows on a date. I may make a flavor with out.

Thanks so much for this mod! I've missed the updates on the mods you mentioned and I've been looking for replacements ever since. I want my sims to be autonomous as possible to keep my game interesting. Can't wait to try it out! Thanks again!

I'm loving this mod! Although, I am getting frequently asked on dates or to travel and it can be a bit odd. Are you able to make this mod but exclude the autonomous ask on date option please? Thanks!

Tried it out for a while and I hope you're open for some feedback. 1. Large groups in restaurants, Sims now talk even more and take forever to finish their meal. 2. Autonomous "Best Friends" not really my thing. I actually like having only one best friend that I choose for my Sims. 3. Getting forced into map view when asked on a date. I'd rather not have that at all. 4. Romance Festival, more like "ruining your marriage festival". Everyone is flirting with everyone, sad and angry Sims everywhere - I love it! This mod is really promising and already made my Sims feel more animated. I hope you keep working on it.

I have also had the travel problem it's not so bad but when your sim is waiting for his meal to arrive and he gets asked 5 times to travel it gets a bit much.

This mod does sound interesting even though I use quite a few no autonomy mods. I also don't like the ask for loan feature and use a mod to disable this. Having said that, I agree about the conversation part. The ability to gain info and build relationships autonomously sounds appealing. I don't like the autonomous jogging feature, you invite sims over to interact with them not have them just getting up and going jogging whenever they feel like it. I will however give this a try. Might even try your other mods too, I'm trying to be a matchmaker and invite sims over to get them chatting but I can't tell if it's working or not. Autonomous romantic interactions may well show me. :-)

The game automatically has them chat since it is something they can do while eating. They did it with the chat idle all of the time. My only suggestion if it is to much is not to click on the heart, or mean or what ever symbol it has next to the chat but to cancel the actual face chat bubble in the queue. Canceling the symbol just stops that interaction but to stop the conversation all together you need to click the face. Hope this helps.

On the festival, well since it adds a romantic aura then the mod must be doing what its designed to do lol Since thats how the sims feel then glad to hear they are responding to their feelings for once Most of the romance is set to a lower chance if they are just aquaintances but it can be overrided if other factors are higher. If it sounds like it needs to be adjusted let me know and I can do that.
