Schweet! Now I just need to figure out how to make sure my vamps don't wander outside to get the paper or something even stupider. This is a great start, though! I'm sick of my vamps dying just to cheer their kids after getting a good grade or to greet the welcome wagon. At least now, I've only got to keep my eye on the perimeter rather than watching that coffin like a hawk!

Thanks so much!

Brilliant, I've been waiting for this hack since I first got the game and played a vampire. Thanks a million for making it, now I'll actually play vampires in the game.

By in doors, does it require a home with no windows? or windows with curtains drawn?

It didn't work on my sister's computer, but I will test it on mine. Is it for daylight and is it for only without windows? Thanks! =D

This is for Daylight Indoors not for Daylight Outdoors. With or Without windows it should work.

Pls. see my journal for my hacks compatibility. Thanks.

I tried it and it still didn't work. I'm not sure why I don't have alot of hacks. Actually thats probably only the 1st or 2nd one.

Rancid, make sure there is a real roof on the home, not just tiles as a roof.

This mod works great! Thanks for the work

I'll try this out soon ~~ sounds fantastic! I had to keep using the Multi-Purpose Painting to renew the vamps' stats during the day, but this should make life easier! Thanks!

Fantastic! Thanks. I was excited about having vampires until my entire family died because they were too stupid to stay in their coffins all day!

Great stuff. I've actually managed to build some sort of vampire village and it was quite a PITA to keep everyone from dying (indoors no less, silly kids wanting a read - or when there's afire they even worse; they scream fire while burning themselves yay well not burning, but they're smoking.)

Works gr8 in my game. Ive not seen in problme in the way that it degrages the stats of your sims. But I did find one bug with it. It disabled the options to use Sims cars after you go to a lot. You cant click on it an bring up any options.

After this hack was removed I checked the game once more an All options are avalbe.

But Gr8 concept an Love it

There is a minor conflict with this mod and OFB. BHAV 0x48C was updated in OFB (your mod uses version 0xC from Nightlife...OFB is up to version 0xD). In the OFB version, My Person Data 0x64 is set to 0xFF6E at Node 0xE (which is missing from your mod). 0x64 appears to be associated with servo mood. I have had a couple of individuals tell me that they have had issues with servo mood going wacky with this hack installed, but have not confirmed this personally. In either event, there appears to be a discrepancy between the version of this behavior and the one included in NL that I thought you might want to know about.

Hi, J thanks for informing me about this, but I had a reason why I didnt modified it.
In "Motives - Set Vampire Nighttime Awake" where all motives are freeze, it set to -500.
Then it set to -150 when daytime indoors - "Motives - Set Vampire Daytime Indoors Awake".
If I didnt include that it will use the current set up, maybe -500 or -5 for daytime outdoors, because my hack is not going to change it. So that's why I said OFB compatible and it will not conflict with OFB as you said. But adding -300 (adult set up) is not a problem, I think I should upload another version if this one is causing a problem to you. I'll upload that later.

Pls. see my journal for my hacks compatibility. Thanks.
