This mod is outdated. Please use whiterider's mod instead.

This mod disables the policeman that sends teenagers home at night.

Where I live, it is not forbidden to walk around in the night, and I think, it makes no sense, that a policeman telepathically knows about someone wandering around in the night at the other end of the town.

It will not stop children from running home, and it will not disable the moodlet.

Compatibility note:
This overrides the Police XML resource with the ID 0333406C_00000000_895FB6C3111A65E0. It will conflict with other hacks, that override this resource, which would be mainly hacks, that change some police behaviour. But not every hack that changes police behaviour will conflict, of course. It is compatible with awesomemod, which allows to disable the curfew policeman, too. In the worst case, it is just disabled a second time at different positions.

It will conflict with other hacks, that override this resource, which would be mainly hacks, that changes some police and service npc behaviour.

Thanks for this mod. Yeah the whole curfew annoys me in the game. I like to see a mod that allows me to attack the stupid cops.. cause if I had kids like the ones in the sims I would diffidently attack the cops..

Thank you so very very much! I just discovered there was a curfew today, since I had no young sims before. What perfect timing!

thanks, i've been looking for something like this. police curfew is pretty real though where i live, it makes a little bit of sense to me. there's laws everywhere in the u.s. but would you consider making the chance of getting caught by the cops a 50/50 type of thing? like, reduced chance? thank you though.

I live in germany, and it isn't that strict here. If children/teens are drunk or lost, they will be brought home of course, but not if someone just takes a walk in the night, or goes fishing for examle.

Anyway, i uploaded a version with reduced chance, hope you like it.

my dear lord, it's the ferocious black beast of Rhipsanydoridontodontodontodon, with its large black teeth that can eat 3 humans at once, mate 3 times a year, can reach an average speed of 80 miles/hour, and is 50 ft aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrggghhh

P.S. if you have seen him put this in your signature

Child curfew is from 22:00 (10pm) to 6am, teen curfew is from 23:00 (11pm) to 6am. ya's have no restriction.

Yes, there is a similar function build in.

Curfew on 12s no longer enforced by psychic police hovering overhead
in helicopters waiting to pounce. Police will only get you if they are
called to the scene and find you.


But there may be people, that don't use this, and the mods do not conflict. In the worst case, it is just disabled a second time.

Yes, it does, but there is nothing wrong with having alternatives. I use Awesomemod and have that feature turned off for now, so I still get the curfew thing but if I want to disable it, I can. However, not everyone will want to put Awesomemod in their game & it's always nice to have a quick, single mod to do/or not to do, what you want.

In my region of Canada, there's cops everywhere. Our curfew is 10:00 on weekdays and midnight on weekends, unless we're with a legal adult, so this makes the game more . . . unrealistic, for me. But then again, when was the sims ever truly accurate on everything? Love it, downloading now.

Trois's curfew is totally unrealistic. Unless every sim baby has a tracking device installed in their brains at birth, there's no way the sim police can track young simmies down accurately 100% each time. I'd like there to be a 40% chance of sims escaping the police instead of the curfew being taken off altogether. Thanks a bunch anyway.

(I live in the U.S. and in my city, we have a curfew also. I think after 11:30 PM, everyone under the age of 18 needs to be off the streets. Thankfully, it's not strictly enforced at all. Probably because my city's too big for it to be implemented seriously.)

You mean the curfew is real? There are modern countries where people can't go around at night? Wow.. You people in usa should really stop watching tv or play videogames and put some sense back in your politicians. Thanks jonha for a really needed hack.

Thanks for the neat mod, the very idea of a curfew was pretty shocking to me!
I'm very surprised there are civilized countries with a curfew. Perhaps because I live in a post-communist country, so curfew of any kind is in our minds strongly linked with an oppresive regime.

well.. you should know better in germany you 're allowed to be outside until midnight when you are between 16 and 18, under 16 until 10 pm if you get caught by the police your parents or whoever are accountable
but this has got nothing to do with your mod

AFAIK this is not true, maybe it depends on the bundesland, and even if there were a law, the police won't check every teenager and bring them home, only when the parents inform the police or when the teenager seens to be in danger or helpless.

But this is offtopic.

i never knew there was a curfew in the Sims 3 as i never played a teen.
Is there a option to run or hide from police?
if not that would be a cool mod,
or a mod with the 3 options, atack, run or hide.
Anyway thanks!!! this is really cool.
