Don't Wave At Me
« on: 2005 November 17, 01:22:51 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Stops the turn, face camera, wave at you obnoxiously thing when sims go wrong. Now they can pass out, pee themselves, and die in whatever direction they were facing previously, without that silly waving-their-arms-at-you thing.

I like when they wave at me. Some days, it's the only validation I get. *sniff*

Or...do you mean this stops them from the frantic waving and bitching and complaining, when they should just shut the hell up and go to the damned bathroom, already? If that's the waving you mean, I'll download this.

Yes and no. They can be combined together to achieve better results, but in the event that a sim whines or otherwise goes south, it won't stop to wave at you obnoxiously before doing whatever it is that's supposed to happen.

So will there be a separate update to the FFS version of lesswhiny?

Been there, and unfortunately do that too. I wish computers were interactive enough that I could smack them, because sometimes nothing else seems satisfying.

Not in NL the can't. Lesswhiny serious FUBARs sims in NL. They just stand around and do nothing. And noroutefail doesn't seem to work either. If you want to test that try putting in a sectional with a table in a residential kitchen.  Grin

Oh, thank goodness. No more yelling "I know you're hungry! That's why I just made you cook six servings of lobster thermidor. See! There it is! Eat it already FFS!" Thanks!

I agree with everyone about the hand waving being annoying and violence inducing.  But I find that when grouchy sims do it its a little less annoying and a little more amusing.  Would it be possible for this hack to do a check and allow sims with 3 or less grouchiness to do the waving?

LOL, I agree.  I think the waving thing is kind of cute, if I really have forgotten them...but most times when they are waving at me, I've queued up the very actions they want...and they are wasting time waving at me instead of just eating/sleeping/peeing/cleaning up the vomit filled plate.

I usually yell "What are you stupid?  Just do it already!"  (one of the few things that makes me actually yell at them.)

This seems to handle route failure well. The "dance steps" balloon comes up, but there's no stomping and bitching to accompany it. That lets me know there's a routing problem so I can fix it, but keeps me from wanting to whomp anyone into the next lot.

My usual reaction was to yell at the screen, "Stop bitchin', start [insert action I've already instructed them to do] !!!!"

Thanks so much for this.

I've played with this for only a few days, and I'd have to say, it makes a difference. I prefer to have the sims ignore some of their needs (like hygiene, since it doesn't hurt them) until the bar is 1/8 full, and I used to get so annoyed when they would stop, destroy the queue, and wave at me for 20 sim minutes when I knew perfectly well that they were in no danger of passing out or dying!

Maybe I will try this.  I don't know if it will do what I want it to do though.  I want them to NOT do all the moaning and yelling and bitching and carrying on and just go do what they are supposed to do.   Angry
