Rsimnia requested a mod to remove the red line and pause thing from the interface (see her request here), something that also annoys the bejeezus out of me.  So after a bit of hunting in the ui.package, I came up with a solution.



This mod should prove useful to custom content creators, contest-junkies, story-tellers, and film-makers. Basically anyone who uses something other than the in-game camera to grab screen-captures.

Attention!  May conflict with other User Interface mods.

Installation: Extract the file from the RAR, then install by placing in the Downloads folder.

Un-Installation: Delete the file (no-red-pause-mod.package) from your Downloads folder

Notes:
When you click in the top left corner the game may or may not pause depending on what expansion pack, fix-patch, and platform version of the game you are using; use the Pause|Break key on your keyboard for a quick replacement should the corner-click no longer work.

The replacement images were made by replacing the TGA original images (uncompressed with 8-bit alpha channel format) with transparent PNGs of identical size. This mod has been tested with The Sims 2 (only), University EP, Nightlife EP, Open for Business EP, Pets EP, Seasons EP, Bon Voyage EP, and all the stuff packs.

Credits:
Thanks to Dracine for testing this mod in Bon Voyage.

Thanks to xjessisthebestx for testing this mod in Pets.

Thanks to HugeLunatic (MTS2) and whitesiren (MTS2) for testing this mod on the Mac platform.

USING THIS MOD WITH OTHER UI MODS:
Using SimPE, extract the items contained in no-red-pause-mod.package to a secure location by right-click... Extract..., make note of the Instance numbers. Open the UI mod you generally use and replace the line items with the same Instance numbers by right-click... Replace...

Policy: whatever, but if you steal it, you have to support it.  Permission is granted to freely re-distribute this mod on any site. Additionally, this mod may be incorporated into any other UI mod without prior permission or credit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  :toothy8:  I was hoping someone would do this, because ever since I re-installed Seasons on my laptop, the red lines started appearing again (like they were originally intended to... I just have a weird game, that's for sure... :lol:)  Once again, thanks sooo much for sharing this!  :smile bi:
