Compatible with patch 1.90.358 (July 26th, 2022)

This tuning mod allows Sims to use ladders while carrying small items (books, dishes, trash bags, laundry, etc.).
It also makes Sims climb roughly 50% faster. This value is a good compromise between speeding up the action and maintaining a realistic animation.
With AlwaysSlideDown version: in addition to climbing faster and carrying items, Sims will now always slide down ladders instead of climbing down. Wheee!

Use either one version or the other. Not both!

Split the mod into 2 versions: one makes Sims always slide down ladder, the other won't. Use only one of them.

Sims will now always slide down ladders instead of climbing down. ~ Thanks SailorEffinMoon for the suggestion

- Pool ladders and ocean ladders (Island Living) aren't affected.
- Toddlers, cats and dogs still can't be carried while using ladders. This might be added in a future version if I manage to fix the animation for them.
- AlwaysSlideDown: Children and Sims with the childish trait usually get a +1 Happy "Wheeee!" moodlet when sliding down ladders. They won't get this moodlet when they autonomously slide down, only when you explicitly tell them them to slide down (click on a ladder > "Slide Down").

No known conflict.
