Should now be updated for the patch.

This is pretty straightforward; with this mod your sims should never autonomously choose to nap on beds, sofas, chairs, or in the hot tub. There is a second package file to stop them from napping in the party bush as well, which I left separate just in case anyone wants them to still be able to collapse in there. I have also now added a no autonomous napping for the coffin in a separate file.

Sims can still be told to nap on any of these objects, since it's still a dialog pie choice.

The only side effect I noticed was that if my sim ended up getting really tired during the daytime part of the day, he didn't seem inclined to autonomously sleep in his bed. I think it has to do with what sleep choices sims make at certain times, but I can't make heads or tails of it enough to change it. In any case, they can be directed to sleep if needed.

The mod overrides the autonomy of napping, which has been taken away.

This mod MAY possibly conflict with any others that affect beds, chairs, sofas, hot tubs, or the coffin or bush, if you use those. But it only touches the napping aspects so it probably depends on the mod.
To make the main part of this mod, I changed the following xmls, so any mods that use the same may conflict:

And these were edited for the Party Bush add-on, for which you'll need Get Together:

And this for the coffin, for which you'd obviously need the Vampires pack;

I'll likely take another look at this in a couple of weeks. It doesn't seem to be working in my own game either. But I want to wait until after I purchase the vampire pack so I'm not redoing it twice back to back, and just not sure how soon that will be.

Should be updated to the toddler's patch now.

This mod would go great with my 'No Auto Sleep Unless Necessary' mod. There were several changes to the tuning files when Plant Sims were added. Please update when you can, thanks.

Not working properly for me either. Removes the Nap option completely. Pity, too, because I really wanted to use this.

Feel free to PM me with any lot requests. I've mostly done house trailers in the past.

I loved your mod. Thanks. Most unfortunately it removes the option of napping completely from the game and there are also places that can still nap. There will be some update please.
