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.

Considering 1.67 was simply an update for server messaging and ITF bug fixes, I would think it would work alright. Just in case, you should back up your saves before installing it- Murphy's law and all that.

Yay! My sim gave birth to triplets last night and that was my first time ever I got triplets! I wasn't really trying to get them either, and I only had the fertility treatment on the mother. I'm so happy for my sims, but they are also sleeping much less, you wake up, take care of the kids ( they're all girls ) and it's 6pm already and you have to eat and go to sleep again. Now thanks to you, they can enjoy their own lifes too!
