Does your toddler break your heart crying almost every night because of a nightmare ? More likely, is your sim woken up several times every night by her triplets and her husband's alien triplets born by pure coincidence at the exact same time ? Even more likely, does having to read toddler books and turn on the radio every night for their wild toddler give your sims nightmares ? If you answered yes to one of these questions, this mod is for you !


What does this mod do ?

In the Sims 4, toddlers have a 50% chance of having a nightmare at night ; this chance is divided by 5 for independent toddlers, and all toddlers have 10 times less nightmares than before once their thinking skill reaches 3.

My mod changes the base chance : one flavor reduces the nightmares to 20%, another to 10%, and the last one completely eliminates nightmares from the start. Flavors that still allow nightmares also allow independent toddlers and toddlers with high thinking skill to have less nightmares than others, as only the base chance to have nightmares has been changed.


How do I install this mod ?

Unzip it. Place the package in your Mods folder. Start the Sims 4 and enable custom content and mods in Game options - Other. Apply changes, quit and restart the Sims 4, and enjoy peaceful nights !


Conflicts

This XML tuning will conflict with other XML tuning mods using the following resources :
0C772E27!00000000!000000000002552F.loot_Buff_Toddler_Nightmare.ActionTuning
The 3 flavors of the mod conflict with each other, so you can install only one.


Patch and updates

This mod was built with version 1.27. It might be incompatible with version 1.26 of the Sims 4 ; if your game isn't up-to-date, use at your own risk. It is incompatible with versions anterior to 1.26 anyway, as toddlers were fabulous imaginary creatures at those ancient times !

I will do what I can to keep this mod up-to-date ; if the mod is out-of-date for several months or more, I encourage you to contact me. If I don't reply, you're allowed to upload an updated version, if you credit me as its author and link to the original mod.

This mod is compatible with the latest patch (version 1.30).

Does this cover the children as well? I notice my toddlers don't wake up half as much as the older kids do.

No, because only toddlers have nightmares. Monsters under the bed are coded entirely differently.

I must have a glitch then...my sim kids wake up just about screaming from nightmares a lot (monsters under the bed sucks too)...I feel bad for them. I haven't had a toddler have a nightmare yet. I'll keep this mod on hand just in case they do!

Yeah same here.. In one household the kids and toddlers sleep in the same room, I have that monsters under the bed light on wall in the room and the toddlers sleep fine and the kids were still jumping up freaked out. I notice that doesn't seem to be happening now since adding this mod so maybe it is working on the kids.

Thanks for it regardless of who it's working on.....I don't have patience with EA's add-on antics.

I tried it, since you mentioned seeing it less, but it changes nothing in my game. Children still wake up screaming. It is really just for toddlers, this is what the edited XML seems to be pointing at, anyway.

Je mange des girafes et je parle aussi français !...surtout :0)

I can confirm that the XMLs I've modded haven't done any changes to the monster under the bed, because the files coding the monster and the files coding nightmares are totally separate, and the monster and nightmares are coded very differently. So my mod can't solve the issue, and I'm afraid that what happened to your game is just a coincidence.
After testing with other mods made by other people that affect the monster under the bed, children always wake up screaming. Hopefully the bug will be fixed by a patch ASAP.

I've been working on a no monster mod, and it works fine but I also want to include a bug fix against children being scared when they wake up (which is a known bug that happens with or without mods). I've tried very hard, but it's been unsuccessful until now and I won't release the mod until I've made a fix that works. But I'm working on it.

Thank you for this! XD I'm doing ts4 100 baby challenge and currently I have 3 toddlers. When one gets up from a nightmare the other go's down from their nightmare. Now it's just STAY ASLEEP. XD
