Released : No flirty moodlet from romantic TV shows

This mod removes the flirty moodlet that sims normally get from watching romance on television. Now the romance channel is like any other TV channel. It won't make sims flirty watching it, and then they won't be pushed to do romantic interactions with complete strangers.
This is an XML tuning mod.

Available on Mod the Sims.

Released : No notifications for vegetarian sims after eating

This mod removes the invasive notifications that vegetarian sims receive every time they eat : "Whoa ! (Your sim) has discovered a delicious alternative to meat products ! Who knew that a meal could still have the familiar meat taste without the meat ?" and "Successful vegetarian food is successful ! The flavors, the texture, all around amazing ! This dish definitely has (your sim)'s seal of approval.". It doesn't change anything else to actual gameplay. Vegetarian sims will still experience the same moodlets and emotions as usual after a meal, and notifications will display only after eating non-vegetarian food.

Released : Improved reactions to aliens - 4 flavors

This mod changes random angry or confident reactions to discovering aliens : if the relationship between the sim and the alien isn't already negative, the reaction is always confident. Two optional flavors remove the embarrassed moodlet that aliens feel when discovered, and create cumulative scores for relationship gains and drops depending on the sim's traits : nice, intellectual, scientist and alien hybrids benefit from gains, while bad traits suffer from drops.
This is an XML tuning mod. The 4 flavors conflict with each another, install only one.

Released : No autonomous romantic serenade

This mod disables autonomous serenading from the singing skill. Sims can still be directed by the player to serenade, and may still serenade with musical instruments autonomously.

This mod reduces the base chance for toddlers to have a nightmare during night. 3 flavors are available, to reduce the chance of nightmares to 20%, 10%, and to eliminate nightmares completely.

Thank you so much for this mod.  I don't mind them serenading, but it was going beyond the cute stage. 
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Don't know if it's possible, but I would LOVE  a mod that takes away the "You have taken a photo and it can be found here" notice that comes up EVERYTIME you press "C".

@simfulicious I'll check if it's possible. If it is, I'll do it. I find those notifications annoying too. Thanks for the suggestion :)

Any chance of a mod that stops autonomous enchanting greetings? My married sims end up with so many 'lovebirds' because of this it is simply ridiculous.

Good luck with your modding. Looks like you are well on your way!

@Playalot The mod already exists : No autonomous rude / flirty / enchanting introductions
I play with it combined with these two :
No more random friendships or romances
Stop random flirting
The 3 combined completely stop generating random romance and cheating. There are no more random "lovebirds" in relationship panels, sims flirt only with romantic interests that you initiate, and with this almost all townies are single with no romantic interests at all, that makes a huge dating pool for my sims !

Thank you for your encouragements, I discovered how much I LOVE modding. I loved programming already, and modding is a really fun application, and very easy to do in the Sims 4. It trains logic a bit, and it's quite addictive, honestly it's even more addictive than playing. It's tempting me to go further and try scripting later. And I discovered so much about the game's behavior and how it's built, there are plenty of Easter eggs hidden in there, a few of them even seem to be little "gifts" to modders, it's cute. To people who are tempted, if you like programming, try modding, it's fun !

I know that someone else has already made that mod. It's different when a mod is made by someone you are in contact with though. That way you know it is up-to-date and functioning correctly etc.  :)

I don't normally use mods that change the game play tbh but the auto enchanting greetings is something that 100% needs addressing by the devs as it takes control from the player and ruins a lot of story lines.

Sounds a very addicting hobby! I'm really a vanilla gamer, in all games too not just TS. Been that way since I started gaming a few moons ago! lol Old habits are hard to beat. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.

I agree about this, some interactions shouldn't be made autonomous.
For others, I'm trying to retune them to severely limit autonomy rather than totally suppressing it, like for example reports of good sims trolling the forums. I currently have a mod in testing to make it more of "mean sim" specific interaction. It's a more complex kind of mod which simulates more natural behaviors than turning off autonomy for all traits. Testers are welcome, especially people who experience the issue mentioned above.
Right now, I'm creating more complex stuff but that asks more time to write, and I'm also working on a new blog (Sims 3 related) so I'll publish mods more slowly but they should be bigger mods. I'm looking for future testers of the retuned metabolism + retuned calories mod, something that should make weight and muscle gain and loss much slower and more natural. These are different modules that can be installed together or separately, but should be installed together for the best results. To people who experience weight and muscle gain issues with their sims, you can contact me and specify chat lifespan you prefer to play with, as I intend to make different mod flavors that are optimized for each lifespan. I haven't started writing this mod yet as I'm working on something else, but it would be nice to already have testers available before I have a first draft.

I'm currently looking for players who regularly play with teens and are affected by the "underweight teens" issue. I've found a fix and I need testers !

Released : Underweight teens fix - Natural metabolism part 1/3

This mod fixes the high metabolism issues specific to teenage sims, which cause them to lose too much weight and become severely underweight with time.
This is an XML tuning mod. This mod can work alone, but works best when installed with the two other parts of the Natural Metabolism mod.

Available on Mod the Sims.


Released : Balanced calories - Natural metabolism part 2/3

This mod fixes the issue that causes sims to inevitably gain weight with all foods on long term. Some foods such as salad now allow sims that eat them to progressively lose weight. A balanced and diversified diet made of both high and low calorie foods will allow sims to stabilize their weight naturally, just like in reality.
This is an XML tuning mod. This mod can work alone, but works best when installed with the two other parts of the Natural Metabolism mod.

Available on Mod the Sims.


Released : Retuned metabolism - two flavors - Natural metabolism part 3/3

This mod slows down muscle and weight changes induced by exercise, so that sims won't experience brutal weight and muscle mass changes, and will see their weight and muscle evolve progressively and naturally with time.
This is an XML tuning mod. This mod can work alone, but works best when installed with the two other parts of the Natural Metabolism mod. The 2 flavors conflict with each another, install only one.

Available on Mod the Sims.

Released : Sims 3 inspired lifespans for the Sims 4 - 6 flavors

This mod reproduces the Sims 3 lifespans in the Sims 4, with short, medium, normal, long and epic options available, and adds a realistic option based on a custom lifespan from the NRaas website.
This is an XML tuning mod. The 6 flavors conflict with each another, use only one at a time. You can alternate flavors between gaming sessions though.

Update : the latest patch (1.29) broke 3 of my mods including Balanced Calories and Retuned metabolism. Please don't download them and don't use them until they're updated. I'll update them as soon as I can.

I was working on new mods and improvements for mods that hopefully will be released in the future. But now I need to take a break from modding, because my 4-legged best friend has incurable cancer, I need to be there for him as long as he's with me, and I don't have any joy or energy for modding right now. I'll still update my mods as long as I have enough remaining energy for it, but I certainly won't be releasing new stuff for a while. You can keep posting your suggestions for mods and mod improvements though, I'll keep reading them so it can give me new ideas when I'm back.

Thank you @HelenP , I hope the same for him too. I want him to be happy more than everything else. Sadly we never have enough time to say goodbye when it's time for our family and friends to go.

@CoffeeMeNow this post here click has a lot of general info which should be some help. Maybe start with just downloading one mod to get to grips with how to download/install etc and once you understand the process then try more/bigger mods etc. Welcome to the forum!  :)
