Updated Nov 13, 2018 - Updated for the 1.47.49 game patch.

Always Start Lots Paused

This modifies The Sims 4 lot loading routines to automatically pause the game whenever a lot is loaded. This includes when changing lots in manage world, traveling to another lot, returning from the CAS to change outfits, etc. After the plumbob "loading" animation completes, the game will always enter the lot paused.

Installation and Compatibility

Extract the MTS_Scumbumbo_AlwaysStartLotsPaused.ts4script from the download zip file into your game Mods folder. This is a script mod, so scripting must be enabled in your game options.

This mod should be compatible with any versions of the game since (November 13, 2018).

Additional Credits:
All of the brilliant people who have worked on getting the game's base scripts decompiled.

Thanks to Fetusdip for his reload script to make testing a whole lot easier, and Scripthoge for the Python script injection routines required to make this mod possible.
