You might have been scrolling and noticed “Autonomy” in The Sims 4 game options. If this is new to you (absolutely fine), then this guide will help you understand how this and other game options work.

Take a look below to learn more about this aspect and also various ways you can use it!

Autonomy in Game Options

What you might have stumbled across are these two options:

  • Autonomy (Off / Full) – Adjusts the level of free will that Sims demonstrate. When Off, Sims will only react to events in order to preserve heir own lives.
  • Disable Autonomy for Selected Sim – Disabled Autonomy for the selected household member, while other Sims roam free with Autonomy On.

Basically, if you turn autonomy on, your Sim will be more in charge of their lives. Quite interesting, right?

Autonomy Mods For The Sims 4

Of course, we couldn’t forget all types of mods that come along with this option.

Slice of Life

Would you like KawaiiStacie to make the game once again more interesting? If you choose to try her mod The Slice of Life, it will enable random interactions and unexpected pop-ups. Also, along with many realistic features such as the drama system, party system, NPC text system, sickness system, and much more.

This way, the game will definitely be more unexpected and interesting!

Notice: With each new Sims 4 patch, mods need to be updated in order to be compatible with the game. The Slice of Life mod team has always been quick to update their mod. So, we’re sure they’ll release a new version that is compatible with patch 132 quite soon! Stay tuned!

Extreme Violence

We all know that life is not always full of rainbows and sunshine. Well, if you’re looking for more passion and emotion, why not choose The Sims 4 Extreme Violence autonomy mod and try out all the new things your Sims can do.

However, be warned. If you’re not a fan of mean actions, this might not be ideal for you!

Have Some Personality Please

Well, the name of this mod is quite straightforward. This personality mod enables Sims to behave and perform interactions more like their Traits. It’s gonna be perfect for you if you have been feeling like your Sims are just lacking something. Some passion. Or maybe more emotions?

You can get this lovely mod here.

Autonomous Proposals

Weddings are truly a fascinating part of the game. However, they are very predictable because we are in control of the whole process. Well, this mod lets Sims to propose all on their own. Don’t worry, you won’t miss it because a pop-up message will appear on the screen when someone is proposing.

The Autonomous Proposals mod is a great way to add some surprises to this game. Of course, if you’re a fan of planning everything, you might just want to check our wedding guide for more ideas!

There are so many aspects that we plan in The Sims 4. However, sometimes we just want to make the Sims more autonomous, more in charge of their own decisions. If this is also you, do take a look at some of the mods above or simply change the game settings!

Have fun in the game, and don’t forget that we don’t always have to plan everything for our Sims!
