Introduction
Hello everyone!
Saw that the previous bed energy mod by shimrod101 was outdated and not working. **This mod is built from scratch, none of the files from that mod have been used**
Since I do not like playing with the beds in their original state I thought I could take it upon myself to rectify the issue.

What the mod changes
This mod sets all the beds to have 10 energy and I also removed the uncomfortable trait on a few beds (not the kids bed).
The rest of the stats I left untouched since a more expensive bed should have some kind of upside to it, but having them all at 10 energy leaves us with a viable option to use all the beds according to decoration tastes.
The uncomfortable trait just seemed unnecessary to me, who the hell would by an uncomfortable bed? So that trait was removed from the beds affected by it.
The catalog numbers are also changed to reflect the new values.

What file/files to download
I have made several separate packages. One for you only owning the base game and then one for each of the expansion packs and finally a combined pack with all of them combined for a single file. Will try to add more packages for future expansions (if the expansion have any new beds in them).


Important
If you have all the expansions listed in the files section installed use the combined file and ONLY the combined file.
If you don't have any or just some of the expansion packs installed use the Base Game mod combined with the files for each of the expansions/packs you have installed (do not use the combined one).

Outro
Hope at least someone might find this useful. If you find any bugs, misses or have something you would like to have added please let me know in the comments section.

"The uncomfortable trait just seemed unnecessary to me, who the hell would by an uncomfortable bed? So that trait was removed from the beds affected by it." Ditto.

It's so off-putting, when, as you have said, you're trying to be versatile in the design and décor of the bedrooms, all the while knowing sims are going to have a bad time sleeping on the beds. Maxis go too far too often with their inane ideas. Thanks for taking the Maxis brain farts out of the bedroom.

Thanks so much! This was one of my favorite mods and it was a bummer when it broke w/all the EP's/SP's and patches. So glad you decided to create this mod! :D

Ditto to what the rest have said. The strategy part of picking the items that deliver the most comfort, energy, etc... is fun and has been since the Sims 1, but gets old quickly. After playing that way for a while, I just want to decorate the way I want to decorate and not feel that I'm punishing my Sims to do so. Thanks for the fix.

Am I supposed to use this like a script mod and put the zip file in or what's in the zip file? I have the (I believe) package file in my game and my sim just woke up uncomfortable from a too-firm mattress.

Unpack the contents (.package file) into your mods directory. Are you not seeing the increased energy replenish speeds either?
What bed are you using in-game?

Thank you for getting back to me! Yes, the package file was unpacked and I put it in my mods folder. What is weird is it is the Soothing Sleeper bed which I thought was one of the better beds. I don't know about the energy replenish, haven't looked at that but I will. It didn't happen every time and it is just one Sim that complains about it; I get a notification saying the bed is too firm.

Hi again and you are very welcome. Just tried out the soothing beds in my game and I cant manage to get the discomfort trait from it (more than from a hungry sim). Went through the tuning file and can't find anything in there that I missed. Just like you said that bed is not supposed to give that trait even un-modded. Do you know if you have any other mods that might conflict with this mod, that alters the bed files or their tuning files?
If you are unsure you can download the mod "mod-conflict detector" here on modthesims. You can find it under "downloads-programs and utilities". Please run that program and check if my mod is marked in any color their (detecting any conflict).

Hope we can get this sorted out for ya!

Thank you sooooo much for this mod!!! My daughter and I always complain that the cute beds have low energy... now we can decorate freely without worrying about our sims's energy levels when playing...
