FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH "FREE TIME"

Well, this here little mod gave me grief, but I think everything is working fine now. I've tested it in all sorts of scenarios without a hitch.

It's a global mod and this is what it does:

When a Sim wakes up, depending on whether or not he's neat or super lazy, he'll make the bed. Once he's done making his bed, he'll do the spin thing and dress in his everyday clothing.

Works with:

Children
Teens
Young Adults
Adults
& Elders

Works either on a home lot or University lot. In other words, wherever there is a bed a Sim can sleep in.

I know there are a couple of similar mods out there, but this one does not interfere with Sims wearing coats or any other type of dress. This only has to do with either PJ's or undies since it happens when they make the bed.

If the Sim is too lazy to make the bed, you can always direct him to make the bed and then he'll have to change into everyday clothes.


Note: Place this mod in your downloads folder or in a subfolder or sub-subfolder thereof. Don't want it? Simply remove it from your Downloads folder.

There. Hope this makes somebody happy; I know it made me jump for joy since I was sick and tired of Sims going to class and outdoors in underwear.

Enjoy.

I don't think it will cause problems unless Maxis does some awful things to the Make The Bed code.

I think it should be okay all the way around.

Useful mod for those Sims who take their showers at night and need to be up right away in the AM...

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

For some reason I can't get this to work, I wonder if it's conflicting with another hack I have?

What hacks do you have? If it is a conflict it will be with one regarding clothing. Please let me know because neither I nor the people who have tested for me have had problems.

Let me know.

I have a hacked coat hook that lets you get cloths for free,hide the weird hats and stuff, and young adult cloths for adults.I think if anything it would be the coat hook because it lets you change cloths and stuff like a dresser?

No, that's not it because I have that too. And the clothes as well. This has been tested with a lot of hacks, and all works well. It has to be something else. Can you tell me exactly what's happening when you say it doesn't work?

They make the bed and then do nothing.

Could it be that it won't work with the ppl i already have, do they have to be new ppl from after i put it in?

No, not at all. All my Sims I tested with were existing Sims. That is so weird. They should make the bed (if they are neat) and then spin to get dressed. Let's try a few things if you don't mind:

Do you have a lot of hacks in your Downloads folder? If you don't, try removing everything except for this one mod to see if it works then.

Do you have the "Get Dressed for Class" mod? That one could be the culprit although I don't see how.

Next, make certain that this mod IS in your Downloads folder and not in a sub folder. Maybe subs don't work for you.

Finally, if all else fails, try downloading the file once more and installing it, first taking care of deleting the one you have in your Downloads folder.

Let me know because I'm really curious, scratching my head over this one. h, what expansion packs do you have/not have?

I have more downloads than I don't know what! I don't have the one you mentioned though, I will try taking it out of the sub folder that I have it in, and let you know how that goes.

I have discovered a hack called abort bed making, would that maybe do it, it lets you x out the bed making if you don't want them to do it
