Default Baby too hot
I was wondering, today I got a message in-game, telling me that my baby was too hot. I was just wondering what possible methods are there to cool a baby down??

I think bathing them and then putting them back in the house for a while.

How does a baby get too hot? Except from being outside too long.

I think this may be like the "obnoxious crybaby" glitch but I'm not too sure ... Wait 'till he's a toddler? :shrug:

could the batheing have done it? since the adult sims get hot when they take a shower maybe babies also get hot as well from it? or the game is nice a buggy like usual lol

OK I know this is a very old thread but since the question was never solved, I have found a solution:

Like OP, my baby was in desperate need of cooling off because the child services were about to arrive. Only problem? Toddlers cannot be cooled off by selecting "Get Drink" from the sink, and they do not cool off by swimming because they can't swim. Modded toddler swimming pools? Nope, don't help either.

But know what DOES help? RayNuss' Home Comfort System Add-ons: https://simfileshare.net/download/610940/

Direct the baby to the Airconditioning vent, select Cool Off and voila, they will be take care of. They'll even cool off autonomously. Note: they may trigger the "jump restart" bug and there may be an error if playing with boolprop testingcheatsenabled true, I assume this is because there are no animations for babies cooling off. Just click reset. So far I haven't had any big issues.

All you need is the simblender >reset temperature. However first I would check that there is roof covering the baby or toddler and not roof missing or an attic room, both cause the room to not be 'outside'.

babies and toddlers easily overheat. I had a terrible time with them when I was doing the Test of Time Challenge where of course I had twins. I took turns placing them in a tiny hut that was so small only one crib would fit.

I've been known to use both a Mod that disables the social workers fully and also one that stablizes the sim's temperatures so they don't overheat.I'm playing a BACC and homesteaders don't have a house on their lot when they first arrive as they have to build their own house.

there is also this download you can get for this, also helps to have a fan in your house running, and never having the nursery or kids bedroom upstairs without having at least a fan or air conditioner unit found here

https://modthesims.info/d/491319/don-t-sweat-it.html


Also helps to have seasons and not make everything all summer, because that is going to make things hot indoors as well roof helps but upstairs it can get hot in sim summer especially when all your seasons are summer

You know, my babies tend to be fine... until they grow up into children. Then when they sleep in their beds (which tend to be upstairs on the 2nd floor), they overheat. So I've had to download an air conditioning mod like that one. It's the weirdest thing. I try rebuilding my roof and nothing works! Thankfully so far, this house I've built myself hasn't had the overheating problem, though.

If they are overheating it's probably because the room doesn't have proper walls but roof walls. Walls that form when the roof was drawn out. The best fix is to fix the build of the house if not keep using the simblender. You can of course use Ac's and heaters but temperatures can easily be reset without that expense.

@joeandsarah77: Good to know! I rather prefer more "natural" and immersive ways to lower temperature though But I will keep the simblender method in mind as an emergency solution, always helpful to have a reset button if things go south (which happens very quickly in sims 2 lol)

I'm wondering if I have a hack that deals with temperature, because I never seem to get extreme stuff. How do you cool babies down, though?

I think you carry the baby in front of the air conditioning and that will work or put the baby down on the floor underneath the celling fan, the fan is in the miscellaneous section of the decorations "in buy mode" if you have all expansion packs, there should be 3 or 4 different ceiling fans in there if you have all stuff and expansions, no need for the AC mod the fan would probably be just as effective programming wise,

it helps to remember to have the fan on high by clicking on it and increasing the speed

Does the water wiggler or the sprinkler cool sims down?
