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:
Out of respect to me and any other modder you should not change something in their mod and upload it for others to download. It takes time on a mod regardless if its a core mod, script mod or just and XML mod. With all my mods so far, it takes time to go through the files, find what ones you want, decided where you want them, get them placed, make the necessary code changes, add new codes, and collect all of the loose ends to make even a XML mod to work properly. Plus with all mods regardless of their type, you have to test it, test test test over and over just to make sure you have all your codes in a row. Some of mine have enough code changes that I had to do a lot of trial and error just to find what ones I prefered and some had extra files that had to be tended to as well. So again: It is disrespectful, and hurtful to make even a small change in one code in any mod and upload for others to use.

5/16/17 Change Log: REMOVED: Removed the interaction "Ask on Date"
One of the things I hate the most about this game is how no matter what the sims mood is, the almost always do nice interactions. Almost always are they just Chatting. What are they chatting about? I have no idea because it is set to just do an idle chat that doesn't give your sims any knowledge of the other. So what does this mod do you ask? Good question, keep reading to find out!
WIP If you have ever noticed, when ever your sims are done with the interaction with another that you just directed them to do, they will almost always immediately start chatting. That ment even if they were angry or they just got in a fight with another sim they would start chatting. That seemed extremely strange to me and made story telling a lot harder to do. In this mod I disabled that. The sims will no longer just chat for no reason. So many of these interactions were not autonomous which seemed odd. It was like the creators wanted them sims to always be happy and have good relationships with others with no drama. This mod will help change that. Some of the things I have seen so far are sims discussing their interests and having deep conversations along with getting romantic with others all on their own. They do more than just kiss cheek now! I've seen them go up to their special someone and embrace them and do special kisses. My sims now hold conversations that mean something unlike before, I had no idea what "chatting" was even about. This mod has brought more to my game and I hope it does for your game as well!

Common Questions:<--Please read before asking a question.
What does this mod do? This mod is designed to give your sims more of a personality. And what I mean by that is a large number of interactions have been modified to be autonomous along with changes with how and when they are used.
Are these the only interactions going to be added in this mod? No. Because of the large amount of interactions and the amount of time it takes, I will be occassionally adding more interactions either by my choice or by requests.
Why isn't an interaction in this list happening? None of these interactions are set as a guarantee.
I think an interaction is happening to less/often. Thank you for letting me know. I can take a look at it, let me know your sims traits, their conversation they were having, their mood and what kind of relationship did that sim have with the other.
Is it possible to have different flavors? Yes. Depending on what is requested I may make a seperate flavor for it.
Will these conflict with any of your other mods? No. None of these interactions are in those mods.
All of a sudden I get sent to town view saying to travel with others. What does that mean? I set it so other sims can ask others on a date autonomously. If your sim is included then they want to go on a date If you want to go ahead and choose the location and the date scenario will begin. If you don't, then just cancel. I have this toned down so hopefully it isn't happening to often.
An interaction just happened autonomously that isn't listed here. Why? Because I disabled the Idle Chat, Sims will now do a lot more autonomously that was already in the game.
There are a lot of factors in this mod on what determines what interactions are used, when and by who. The things that will help determine it are: Moods, Traits, Conversations, and Relationships. Some are set for specific types. For example, most of the mean interactions are set for the traits: Evil, Hot Headed, and Mean, with occasional ones set for immaturity for the child, teen, and childish traits. However, that doesn't mean it won't happen from a good sim or romantic sim. Depending on how they feel and the relationship with the other sim may override their trait setting. Insanes are very unpredictable.
After I removed the idl chat, this seemed to be happening way to often. Let me know your results! I'm not sure if it was MCCC that makes this appear all of the time or not but I have it adjusted temp. for only sims in a relationship with one another. I know some will want it with friends and I plan on making more adjustments. This option should not appear unless your sims are in some kind of romantic relationship together. As long as you have a small amount of romance bar it should appear, you do not have to be bf/gf to use this.
I also changed the animations that are used when asking for woohoo. The sims will now whisper seductively to give a more romantic feel. Woohoo currently will be turned down based on vanilla game settings. I plan on changing this more in depth in the future.
Autonomy for woohoo was already set to true in the vanilla game. I have changed the settings with this interaction just like I have for the other interactions in this mod to make the sims do this interaction more appropriately instead of just because the pie menu says so.
Since this is still in "Testing" that is because there are more to come. I also hope to hear back from you as well on how the sims are handling the new adjustments.
Try For Baby<--Coming in future releases!
NEW There has been reports on more gay and bisexual relationships then before. However this mod doesn't alter the gender preference. So I went in and added a file that should help lower the chances of those along with increasing the chances of straight relationships. This change will affect new sims the game generates and gives gender preference to. This may take time to see a difference if you are playing in an old save. However, if you do notice a change please let me know.
AddOns: <--Only use 1 AddOn, They will conflict with each other.
These can be used alone or with the main mod Personality_Please! if you would like to change the chances of genders. This will change new sims only!If you are in an old game then the assigned gender preference will stay the same. This will effect newly generated sims or new sims born in the game.
Even Genders<--Each have the same chance as the others.
Mostly Heterosexual<--Very similar to the games chances, except the heterosexual was raised significantly and the others were lowered just a few.
Since the gender preference changes new sims this may take awhile to see the affects. Please let me know your results and the addon you used along with how long it took before you saw a difference.
Personality_Please<--No longer has a gender preference alteration. Use one of the addons to change the gender preference of the game.
Interactions Change:<--I plan on adding to this list when I either, get a request, feel like it lol or find something I feel needs changed.
NEW Express Admiration NEW Calm Self Down In Mirror<--Hopefully this helps keep them from dying from hysterical laughter lol NEW Hug<--Must be friends for this to appear NEW Heartfelt Compliment NEW Ask About Career NEW Flatter NEW Woohoo
