No Autonomous Tag

If you have played Sims recently with the latest patch, you have probably noticed that Sims who play tag catch "running disease" or in other words, they will run forever more until they die. I got so annoyed by this, that I created this mod. Hopefully you will be able to make use of it too.

What This Mod Does
Disables Autonomous "Play Tag" and thus prevents your Sims from catching "running disease"

What This Mod Does Not Do
This Mod will not cure "running disease." Once your sims have this terrible affliction, the only way to cure it is using Twallans Debugger. (available here: This is prevention, not cure.

EP/SP Compatibility
I am 99% certain that this Mod is only compatible with the following patches: 1.12/2.7/3.3/4.0 and 1.14/2.9/3.5/4.2 EA broke something with "Play Tag" with the latest patch, and therefore they must have fiddled with it. (Mod has been tested with Ambitions 4.0)

Is This a Core Mod?
Absolutely not. This is a simple Tuning Mod and should be compatible with all Core Mods (see Known Conflicts below)

Known Conflicts
None: This Mod should be compatible with all mods, unless they edit the "Play_Tag" XML This was basically the only option there though, so it shouldn't conflict with anything.

How to Install this Mod
Place it in your Mods\Packages folder just like any other mod. (Note: if you are using the "My Documents" Mod installation method, this mod will NOT appear in the list of detected mods at game startup)

10/7/2010 - Updated for patch 1.14 (built using Ambitions 4.2) - Play tag disabled as a User Interaction (due to "running disease" bug)
30/6/2010 - Original Upload (1.12)

Additional Credits:
The makers of S3PE for allowing me to make this.
MTS for Hosting this mod, and being a Sims Players best friend.
Twallan for his Debugger, which allowed me to cure "running disease" and make this mod to prevent it happening again
EA for breaking the "Play Tag" interaction and making this mod necessary
Morningflesh for providing me with the code for patch 1.14
