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.

Hello! ^^
Any chance of getting one version of this mod only for babies (not for toddlers)?
If not, is it fine to take the mod in and out the packages folder whenever I want or would it be harmful?
Thank you very much for everything and sorry about my English

This mod is amazing! Honestly, I was ready to throw the baby sim out the window with how often it would start screaming everytime the parent sims tried to get some sleep. They couldn't sleep for 3 days straight! Thank you! For saving their sanity and mine.

Someone should do a similar mod for the babies and toddlers in the Sims 2. Also maybe possibly could make another option where the motives besides energy do not go up or down but stay where they are instead while they are sleeping? Found all those other motives going up during sleep a little too cheaty for my taste and unrealistically easy but if they stayed the same would be perfect. Could call that version Better Sleeping Babies and Toddlers Lite or something.
