Thank you!  Now, will they never notice it? Or will they just notice it when they're bored and doing nothing?

They will notice, but only when really bored. Really, really bored.

Anti Weather reaction hack-any chance for a nuke it to death version?

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

J.M. your anti-weather reaction hack is a big help for my sleeping sims and it keeps thier butts firmly in bed like it should. But during the day my sims still drop everything they are doing, sometimes over and over again no matter how many times I queue something, to gawk like idiots at the rain or snow (I think the hack is intended to curb this as well but my sims have always been especially retarded). Any chance you could use your mighty powers to conjure a version that gets rid of the whole damn reaction all together? I never got all goose-pimply to begin with when they did it and it's just another case of Maxis being overly fond of thier own cleverness and then doing it to death. In any case thanks for all your great hacks, although I think Maxians should be the ones thanking you modders because without you guys making the Sims playable for the long run most people probably would have chucked thier game out the window by now and they wouldn't be waist deep in money (just knee deep).

Note to self: it is a good idea to check if topics are locked before merging other topics in. On the plus side, I figured out that it is possible to merge topics from one forum to another.

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Just wanted to say something I noticed with this hack in place:  works great on the Sims I control; however, I guess it does not work on the ones I don't control because when I'm in a downtown store, all the non-controlled idiot sims will flock to the window, including shopkeepers!  It's pretty stupid when I'm trying to have my sim talk to another one in downtown, when the other idiot just runs to the window and goes, "Oooooh, rain!!!"  And more annoying when bartenders, waiters, shopkeepres, etc, all do the same damn thing.  Even if they;ve already seen it once it's started, they want to go see it again.  Why?!  Ridiculous.

Anyway, not sure if this can be fixed, but if so it would be *MUCH* appreciated.

It probably happens because those sims aren't doing anything so have nothing better to do than check out the rain.

I haven't seen the shopkeepers doing that (my sims dont usually get out much) but I have seen the maids do that, gardeners and repairmen probably do it as well. The peons are there to work not gawk! *cracks bull whip*

I tried this out last night and it worked great for no reactions, but my Sim* got struck by lightening and has no memory of it at all - just being on fire.
Will this prevent Knowledge Sims from fulfilling their Wants to see hail and get struck by lightening, then? 

*The Sim that was struck was a Popularity Sim and didn't have any Wants of Fears related to it, but it seems she should have a memory token of it...or better yet, perhaps they ought to lose memories after being struck.  Cheesy

There is no memory for being struck by lightning by Maxis design.

Did they have anything better to do?

If they were watching for the hell of it, that is not better to do.

To clarify: were they watching TV due to free will (which rain probably would stomp, even with this hack), or a user directed interaction (which rain shouldn't stomp with this hack in place)?

When I have an adult and child skilling with career rewards and snow or rain appears, it stomps the action. This has happened numerous times on different lots. I have noticed a dramatic decrease in the weather reactions with my free-will Sims and no waking up in the middle of the night to gawk at the rain; for that I am thankful.

Career rewards tend to suffer severe ADHD, period, unless launched via Skillinator. Don't even try to launch manually unless you Concentrate afterwards, since the actions for those are run as autonomous priority for some bizarrre reason.

That might explain why kids have stomped skilling to go hug their dad coming home from work.... though I thought I had them on macro-do homework, but at least it explains when I've simply clicked on the bookcase.

It's a nightmare when the barista does this. I took a household of 6 to Pleasantview's Woodland Park to work on their fishing badges. It was the last day of spring and there were still occasional showers. My sims were macro-caffeinating when it started to rain and everything seemed to grind to a halt in front of the coffee cart. The barista and the sim trying to order a cup of coffee just stood there motionless. They weren't even blinking. I was unwilling to make the coffee guy selectable at first because the game will just spawn a new one if I did. When I finally did, there was a 'It's Raining!' reaction in the barista's action queue. Man! I ended up exiting to the neighbourhood. It would be great if the barista doesn't do it again. Sad

I'm having a weird situation when I have my sims call other sims.  If the weather changes while they are on the phone(about 75% of the time)the person on the phone will get the weather reaction icon and the conversation will halt on their side and cause my sim to spend countless and pointless hours on the phone if I don't notice it--if it is a snow icon the person on the phone will turn blue--eventhough I don't think they are in danger of dying--it is still annoying---I throw my hat in at humbly requesting a no reaction hack--if it is at all possible.

I second that  Cool 

I'm so sick of the poorly done/not thought out weather reactions, it wouldn't bother me so much if sims outside got the 'it's raining/snowing/hailing' reaction and then ran inside but of course they don't so the weather reactions are pointless and waste my sims time.

Added check to make sure sim is actually in-world before attempting to push a weather reaction, so on-phone sims are no longer affected. "People turning blue on the phone" is fixed by "warmthfixes".

This is probably outside the scope of your awesomeness, JM, but I'd love an option to invoke weather reactions on command. I have several movie-making hacks that call up animations on command, but I've yet to learn how to do this- is it trivial, can I learn to do it never having hacked an object before? or must I beg more awesome creators?

funny. although i haven't experienced the phone problem, which is a bad thing, i don't seen to be needing this fix.

I mean, i don't use it, and the weather reaction icons are always queued up in my sims queue but they don't stomp the other actions. they just wait their turn. if my sims is slepping, a wheter reaction icon is queued up but he remains sleeping..! if he wakes up and it is still raining then it will react, otherwise the icon just vanish.

So, why is like this in my game?
