Default Toddler Bathing
I finally got so fed up with the constant toddler bathing that I tried to make a mod to actually stop it unless the toddler has low hygiene. To my surprise it seems to have worked on the first try. XD This is most unusual and I can't help wondering if I missed something. If anyone else would be willing to test it for me and let me know if there are any problems then it would be much appreciated!

Bathing should not be attempted unless the toddler has less than 50% hygiene.

Well, some people downloaded it, but no one said there was anything wrong with it. Speak now, or forever hold your peace. XD

I only just saw it, people are probably busy with the contest. I will try it for you. Bit hard to test since this is a free will thing? Play and see if someone grabs and baths a clean toddler? or are you saying I can't even direct a sim to bath a toddler if they are not at 50% or lower? Some more details would be helpful. Also how you want us to test.

You should be able to direct them to bathe a toddler still. They just shouldn't try it autonomously unless the toddler has 50% or under hygiene. Thanks.

Okay, my findings so far are that no one can bath toddlers because they can't. The option has gone from the maxis tubs. I tried forcing a bladder failure and while the grandparent tried to take the toddler to a bath they placed him next to it, so they can't do it either autonomously or directed. The toddler asked for a nappy change which the grandparent did and hygiene went right to the top, further than I think it normally would. I think 3/4 is what you normally get from the change table. I also thought maybe hygiene was going down slower than normal since the toddler had used the potty twice and had barely lost any, but I did start them all on max motives so I am not sure on this last point.

Edit: It's possible it's clashing with the sit with baby or toddler mod so I will try later with that out.

Hmm, I don't get any of that. Nappy changing has always put hygiene right up for me and using the potty hasn't lowered it. Would be helpful if you could try without the other hack, thanks.

Probably can't test now, I am transferring things from my desktop to my portable hard drive and this one folder has slowed my computer right down. I have asked Gina to take a look.

I did a quick test - if the toddler's hygiene is over 50, there's no option to bathe them. The option does appear if hygiene drops to 50 or below.

Thanks. Looks like it does remove the pie menu option as well. I just hadn't noticed before.

Sorry for bumping, but the fact that they bathed Toddlers so much also really annoyed me, I have had so many times that my Toddlers did not need a bath, but my sims just gave them one anyway.
Here's one example, I once bathed a Toddler, fed him a bottle, then I put him into his crib, then about a minute later, some Teenager came into my house, grabbed the Toddler and bathed him again! Why do they need all of these baths? They should only do it when their hygiene has reached around 50%
And another time, my Toddler was bored (The Fun icon was being displayed above his head.) I was trying to get my Toddler to go play with his toys, my Sim went to work so the Nanny came, walked straight up to the Toddler, and guess what she did? She gave him a bath! That does not raise the Fun Motive.
So thank you for this mod, I think that the creators of the game should've tested everything before releasing it.

I should relook at the mod. It seems to work as long as no one wants to use the non autonomous bathing.

I forgot to mention this in my last post, but I once lost a Toddler to the Social Worker due to the constant bathing, I was playing, my Toddler was really hungry, (The icon was being displayed, and he was pounding and screeching on the floor, and the message that says "What kind of parent let's a child go hungry? The Toddler is just skin and bones! Feed that child and fast!" appeared.) I was looking for the fridge so my sim could get a bottle out, as my sim was walking towards the fridge, my other sim got home from work, grabbed the Toddler and can you guess what he did? Bathed Him! and as soon as he finished Bathing the Toddler, the Social Worker came and took the Toddler away for Hunger.
Sometimes my sims do things that I don't like, I got really sick of cancelling actions.

Thanks for reminding me about this. I should upload it.
