This mod reduces the time it takes sims to eat and drink. Instead of sitting and talking or watching TV or any number of other distractions, Sims will actually get on with the business of eating and drinking. Other activities are not stopped completely. Sims with still chat with each other. They will just do it less. Also, when they do eat or drink they can take several bites/gulps in a row without stopping to do other things.

Tuning Mod

This is a Tuning Mod that alters values in the xml files stated below. For active eating and drinking, the 'Lockout' requirement has been removed. For passive eating and drinking a lower bound for 'lockout' is added with a zero value and the upper bound set to 1 from 10. Both active and passive eating and drinking have the sub_action (distraction cause) base_weight set to 1000.


This mod combines and updates the work of 2 retired modders:
