Information
The version 2.0 is available. (May 28, 2017)
The mod is compatible with the latest patch of June 15, 2017 (PC Version 1.31.37.1020).

Changes in Version 2.0 (May 28, 2017):
1. Compatibility with Patch v1.30.103.1010
The butler didn't wear the butler's outfit because of the patch v1.30.103.1010. But now the butler wears the butler's outfit properly.
2. Balance between the butler's duties and personality
I feel that the patch v1.30.103.1010 modifies the butler's autonomy a little. So I tweaked the balance between the butler's duties and personality.

Description:
I think EA’s butlers are too polite and work too hard. So I made butlers more normal sims.
EA's Butlers only have 3 needs enabled to decay: Hunger, Energy, and Fun. They do not feel the need to be social, use the restroom, or clean themselves. On the other hand, the mod allows butlers to have all 6 needs to decay: Bladder, Hunger, Energy, Fun, Social and Hygiene. They feel the need to be social, use the restroom, or clean themselves. In addition to butler's duties, the mod allows butlers to do what they really want to do as well as normal sims. When you do “Assign Tasks” (e.g. Cook a Meal), butlers do your assignment as usual. But when they have no assignments, they may do butler’s duties (e.g. Cleaning) as usual or they may do what they really want to do. It depends on their personalities. Have fun!

For EA's butlers, the game resets (set random numbers) your butler's needs after the loading screen - e.g. go back to home from another venue, CAS or load a save file. So even if your butler feels sleepy, the butler will NOT feel sleepy after loading a save file for example. There's no continuity of butlers' needs. So I offered 2 options. You can choose ONLY one from the options below.

Option a...Your butler's needs are reset (random numbers) during the loading screen (EA default).
Option b...Your butler's needs are NOT reset during the loading screen. It secures the continuity of butlers' needs. If your butler feels sleepy, the butler will also feel sleepy after the loading screen for example. A drawback of Option-b is that the butler's needs don't recover while your sim is in another venue. So if you don't like that, please use Option-a.

Installation and Compatibility:
To install, place Ita_RelaxButlersMod.package file in your mods folder.
This mod was created using Vintage Glamour Stuff Pack in Version 1.25.136.1020 (Dec. 6, 2016 patch), and was not be compatible with earlier versions of the game and you need Vintage Glamour Stuff Pack.
Even if your sim has already hired a butler, you can use this mod. And when you want to remove this mod later, you don’t have to fire your butler.

Change Logs:
January 14, 2017 Ver1.0a and Ver1.1a
1.Fixed Bug
The role name "Butler" didn't show up on the butler's headline because of Jan 12's patch. Now it shows up properly.
January 9, 2017 Ver1.1
For EA's butlers, the game resets (set random numbers) your butler's motives after the loading screen - e.g. go back to home from another venue, CAS or load a save file. So even if your butler feels sleepy, the butler will not feel sleepy after loading a save file for example. There's no continuity of butlers' motives. For Ver1.1, the mod doesn't reset your butler's motives any more for securing the continuity of butlers' motives. So if your butler feels sleepy, the butler will feel sleepy after the loading screen. A drawback of Ver1.1 is that the butler's motives don't recover while your sim is in another venue. So if you don't like that, please use Ver1.0.
