With this mod, Sims can knock over snowmen autonomously only in two cases:
  • when they're children or teens, as a manifestation of immaturity – it sometimes happens when their aspiration bar levels are red.
  • when they have at most 2 points of niceness and at least 5 points of playfulness, and there's no one within 10 tiles around the snowman in the same room.
Players can still make Sims knock over snowmen without any restrictions.

Update (27 May 2021): Fixed a bug that caused children or teens to reset when they were trying to show their immaturity by knocking over a snowman. Made some other Sims able to knock over snowmen autonomously.
Conflicts
None that I know of. This mod will conflict with mods that change the knocking over snowmen interaction.

I do like the idea of placing some restrictions on who can destroy a snowman! (Those poor things hardly ever get half a chance before someone's pummeling them into oblivion!) However, I use simler90's Immaturity Mod Midge the Tree's Immaturity For More specifically to expand immaturity behaviour in both cases (I like their combined effect very much). I guess I worry that I would find this mod too restrictive with the logic of those two mods. I assume there would be no "conflicts" showing between this mod and the two immaturity mods I use; I'm just trying to offer some feedback on how I play my game in case you find that interesting with regards to this mod. Maybe you find that sort of feedback helpful. Very much appreciate what you continue to do for this game.

@Rosawyn It may come as a surprise that this mod would work the same or almost the same way with or without those mods. It's because it does not check immaturity levels.
I decided to release this mod in this form because I haven't touched it since over two years. I was thinking about making it less restrictive though. One of my ideas was to allow rude Sims to destroy snowmen autonomously when no one is around. Perhaps I'll implement it in the future.

Default Error Log
Hey, I kept getting an error on a sim and What Caused This says that this mod is the likely cause, from what I understand he was erroring every time he tried to autonomously kick over a snowman. Any ideas? I don't have any conflicts with this mod.

@BellaDovah Thank you for your report. It's really odd that I've never observed that bug. It's fixed now anyway.
@Rosawyn Added the forementioned feature.

Amazing! Thanks so much I should have probably mentioned, the error was happening to a young adult in University - don't know if that changes anything.
