I'm having the same problem. My other mods are working correctly, so I know I have my cfg file set up correctly. I can't figure it out either.

for the people having a problem, make sure you followed the XML Instructions. If that doesn't fix it, it's possible another mod is conflicting.

If it happens again, can you check that Sim's action on the lower left and let me know what it says the action taking place is within the bubble?
Is it Play games? troll teh forums? what are they actually still doing at the pc.
If they are playing games, what game is it? is it tetris? is it a tournament?
Thanks for your input

I checked my Resource.cfg file and it was back to default. Maybe I deleted it, no clue. It works now though, thanks again!

Ok it's not working at 100%, my sim completed Virus program and right after it queued Research: Workout tips. And of course I only gave her the instruction to do the virus program. I'll update if I find other instances that occurs.

This is partially working in my game. My Tech Guru sim will autonomously Livestream games, but will self-cancel the action shortly after she begins. Similarly, other sims in the household will autonomously Research different topics, but again the action will self-cancel when they're less than 1/4 through the task. I actually wouldn't mind if these actions didn't self-cancel once they started, just the fact that all the frivolous Play Game nonsense is gone is a blessing in itself! I want my sims to Livestream & Research (at least those are productive), so it doesn't bug me that they do it, just that they don't continue doing those activities to completion.

I've double checked I've installed correctly, but the mod still doesn't fully work. My sims still use the computer autonomously to browse web, browse art or chat. The action tends to cancel itself after 5-10 sims minutes. I'd love it they stop using the computer altogether since every time they have a guest, they end up heading for the computer after a while, ignoring the host.

EDIT: My sim just autonomously started playing Blicblock.

This mod isnt perfect but it does work partially. I tried creating a mod like this (I eventually gave up) and there are so many files you have to find and edit. The creator simply missed a few files and you cant blame him for that. Its a lot of work and I respect him for that.

Great mod overall and thanks for keeping up with feedback.

I also noticed one of my sims looking for memes. She was playful so my first thought was that it was something to do with the emotion-based interactions... not sure if that matters though since no one else has mentioned it. Also kind of strange for all of the library computers to be empty, but there's probably nothing that can be done about that

One of my sims went to Research the Guitar but it was on first version of the mod. I'll have to verify again with new version.
