OVERVIEW
While testing games for bugs/glitches it became very clear, that babies and toddlers were a bit of a challenge to deal with and test too. This is another of those little mods I came up with some time ago to help deal with that useless "lump in a blanket" and it's nose picking counterpart. Originally I had intended this for babies only, but not finding the required tuning file for babies, I decided to use the one for toddlers and include babies. Basically when a baby or toddler goes to sleep (on the floor or in the crib) ALL their motives will increase while they sleep. No more waking up with low social or hunger needs, parent sims actually get to sleep a little, and the little brats are a little less bothersome.


CHANGES
I edited 2 files:
  • Sleep_IGameObject - is the actual sleep tuning file for toddlers, I simply added babies to it, and increases for all motives
  • Sleep_0x084c686e55f33d35 - has 2 references for babies:
    • BabySleepEnergyMultiplier - Babies gain energy faster than toddlers in the crib due to their need to sleep often - Default was "2", changed to "1.5" so they would sleep a little longer
    • SleepMotiveWakeUpThreshold - Energy motive level at which babies and toddlers should wake up - Default was "95", changed to "99" same reason as above
NOTE: Do NOT change the "SleepMotiveWakeUpThreshold" to 100 or your baby wont wake up


CONFLICTS
Requires only the Base Game and built with patch version 1.67 - Edits the Sleep_0x084c686e55f33d35.XML and Sleep_IGameObject.ITUN and will conflict with any other mod which does the same.

I love this mod! My Sims recently had twins and with this mod I no longer needed the swings to force them to sleep when I sleep, which opened up more room for toys when they're awake! This mod is awesome!

I've been waiting for such a mod for a very long time. I've stopped playing The Sims 3 for a while as I was too busy with my wedding. Decided to install it again and found this miracle worker! Thanks so much! :D

This is EXACTLY what I need! I've had to keep baby/ toddler time to the very lowest setting forever because they were killing me! Since all my SS dads' got pregnant at the same time because I didn't adjust the setting (target then initiator) I ended up with 2 couples and all 4 got pregnant - to make it worse there was one set of twins...and they all seem to wake up at different times.

Unfortunately I'm only patched to 1.50 so I'll cross my fingers and pray that this will work!

Oh God, thanks. Got stuck with quadruplets after the "infinite baby" glitch (went into edit town and changed active family, that stopped it, but by that time the mom'd already had four brats), and I swear to God all my sims (including NPC sims like the butler and the babysitter) are exhausted and don't even have time to go to the toilet or anything so they keep on peeing themselves or fainting from exhaustion. I have used the "Make everyone happy"-cheat a couple of times but it doesnt feel right. This is a life saver, I'm telling you.

This is awesome! While I love babies in real life, the ones in game piss me off. You are trying to do other grown up stuff or whatever and the babies are always screaming and everyone in house freaks out.
