Sims won't initiate autonomous interactions towards any sim who is engaged in one of the following interactions:
- Painting on an easel or drawing on a drawing board.
- Reading a newspaper, or doing crossword on a newspaper.
- Reading a magazine.
- Playing on an activity table.
- Splashing on a puddle.
- Using a computer (except playing video games). The check should also be added to the Play Video Game interaction on computers, but it would conflict with many mods out there. I've left it out.
- Relaxing in a hot-tub or hot spring.
- Jumping rope.
- Watching TV.
- Building a sandcastle.
- Drinking tea from a tea table.
- Talking on the phone. This mod also makes it so that sims will only consider putting the handset on the ground if they have 100 or lower Neat.
UPDATE 1: Sims were prevented from initiating autonomous socials towards dining sims, but not eating sims. This update adds checks to eating sims, too.
UPDATE 2: Sims are now prevented from initiating autonomous socials towards sims who are using the bubble blower.
UPDATE 3: Sims are now prevented from initiating autonomous socials towards sims who are using the ballet barres from Freetime.
UPDATE 4: Sims are now prevented from initiating autonomous socials towards sims who are using the modular synth from Freetime.
Requirements: Apartment Life and/or M&G.
Resources: Check the image.
Cheer Up Boosts Comfort: This simple mod makes the Cheer Up interaction slightly increase the target sim's comfort motive.
Resources: Interaction - Person B/0x7FF3B90D/0x00001001
Joke Mod: This mod makes it more difficult to tell a joke or a dirty joke, and makes it so that when a sim successfully tells a joke or dirty joke, the target sim's Fun motive will be increased depending on how funny the target sim finds the joke. In addition, if a sim fails at telling a good joke, the game will no longer satisfy the sim's tell a joke/dirty joke wants.
Interaction - Person B/0x7F5676F1/0x00001001

Interaction - Person B/0x7F7788F0/0x00001001
Tuning - Decision/0x7F7788F0/0x00001002
