Thanks for the update! I'll test this later after I get home from work. I was also experiencing Research the Violin and Research Idioms (by children), will see if that still happens with the new version.

Firstly, just wanna say love this mod to pieces! It has gotten rid of 95% of my auto-pcing issues since the last update. Just two things have still been happening in my test - they will still autonomously go and "update social network" and "research the piano/the violin". Those are the only two musical skills my family has, so I'm guessing all the separate instrument ones would need to be blocked

Again, love the mod and your dedication to following it up!! Thank you!! :D

I can verify that I'm still experiencing autonomous Research the Violin and Research Idioms in my game, but at a much lower rate of occurrence. All Livestream autonomy seems to have been squashed in this latest version. Keep up the great work!

I've had guests autonomously researching something but I dunno what, it's the generic google and what looks like house prices pages - anyway the difference is already awesome; thank you for that mod!

Thanks for this! But I found some other autonomous PC interactions that are still happening:

:: "Possess" by Ghost Sim (Controlled and otherwise)
:: "Research Idioms" by Child Sim with Mental Skill
:: "Research the Guitar" by Sim with Guitar skill

that's what I found so far... :D

Wanted to let you know that my sims that play violin will still research the violin on the computer. Its not as excessive as their gaming used to be so I'm not complaining but thought you would like to know if you didn't already. Also thank you so much this mod is a must.

#67 Old 11th Oct 2014 at 7:03 PM
I now have a programmer Sim, and noticed a couple more interactions she'll do on her own I thought I'd let you know about

"Mod Incredible Sports" and "Hack Lothario trust fund". Each have four options available.

Again, thank you for the lovely mod!! So very grateful for your hard work :D

Very cool MOD, was just thinking would their be anyway to only allow autonomy for sims with the Geek trait, maybe a separate version of the mod regardless love this mod
