Having issues trying to disable autonomous Build Snowman, Make Snow Angel and Make Igloo.

No one knows everything this mod can do. Did you know you can tune the size of your sims nostrils with this mod? I'm kidding.

Having issues trying to disable autonomous Build Snowman, Make Snow Angel and Make Igloo.

Post by ButterSandwich » January 23rd, 2019, 11:38 am

I want to disable the autonomous creation of igloos, snowmen and snow angels and I read somewhere you can disable it by using Retuner (Retuner > Settings > General > By Object > ).

I found the Igloo, Snowman and Snow Angel options through this path but I can't seem to figure out how to disable autonomy through them. Is there another category I should be looking under? I saw someone say there should be a "Make Snow Angel" option but I don't see it under "By Objects."

Thanks!

These cannot be object commands. Object commands are on things that already exist. If the object already exists, then it cannot be Made or Created because...well, someone or something has already done that bit. :)

This might do it:
NRaas > Retuner > Settings > General > By XML > Sims3Gameplay.Objects.Environment > SnowAngel > kNumSnowAngelsToDisallowAutonomy > (default is 4, try 0). There is a corresponding command for Snowman.

The one for igloos was trickier to find.
NRaas > Retuner > Settings > General > By XML > Sims3Gameplay.Core > Terrain+MakeIgloo > kNumIgloosToDisallowAutonomy > (default is 2, again try 0).

Some interactions seem to be only reachable by clicking on the object itself. To get to those you need to turn on Retuner's object menu:
city hall or computer>NRaas>Retuner>Show Object Menu>True
That enables a NRaas>Retuner option on most objects.

The trick here is that you need to click on the correct "object" which turns out to be just the ground (i.e. outside terrain). In my brief testing I didn't need snow or for the season to be winter. I did click on the terrain on an actual lot because I don't think you can build those things off a lot, but I didn't check that. Anyways, clicking on terrain:

NRaas>Retuner>General>
Make a Snowman\Classic
Make a Snowangel
Build an igloo

Click on each interaction to set the autonomy to False.

I would expect that to work. I would think igazor's method to work also. I haven't used either in my game. I've disabled autonomy for the social 'ask to build snowman' but that's something different than what you want.

TreyNutz - Oh yes, I didn't think of that. The trick there is to know that the object supporting the tuning change is the terrain (ground) and not snow angels, snowmen, or igloos.

Yeah, I tried those first. :P When there wasn't any option to Make\Build I suddenly realized you don't click on a snowman to make a snowman, you click on snow. Turned out that wasn't even necessary.
