Stop skilling and go to work/school - no motive boost

I adored Monique's 'Stop skilling and go to work/school' - in theory. In reality, the motive boost for hunger and energy annoyed me so much that I ended up deleting it.

Then I learned a little bit about modding and realised I could easily remove that boost. And when I went to grab the download again, I saw in the comments that a few other people would like a version without the motive boost too, so I decided to share. There are three versions, V1 is for Basegame and University, V2 is for Nightlife and Open For Business while V3 is for Pets and higher. It has been tested as high as Mansion and Gardens with no problems, but I'm afraid I cannot guarantee it will work with Store versions of the game.

Full credit to Monique, I only removed the motive boost.

Thank you very much!

And in your first image, is one of your sim's wants to "be electrocuted"?

Ooh, a very useful mod indeed. It does make more sense without the motive boots. Thanks for sharing!

It is indeed! That's Jason Greenman, who I like to test things on because he's a knowledge sim and seems to enjoy it.

I didn't even know such a mod existed. What's with the energy boost in the original mod, anyway? What's it for and where does it come from?? o_o

Thanks! It helped my chef Sim gain skills after work and before work, AND she gained it while cooking!

SilentBird, Monique's original mod gave a boost for hunger and energy, probably so very tired/hungry sims wouldn't come home from work and collapse with exhaustion or die of starvation. From the looks of things, Monique added it herself because she wanted it. I didn't want it, so I removed it.

Thank you!! I deleted that mod for the exact same reason. It seemed so cheaty, even though I loved that it kept me from having to micromanage so much. I tried to fix it myself, but wasn't able to figure it out. Bravo to you for making this and sharing. :D

I love it! Thank you so much; it really, really helps during gameplay!

Well, this is certainly one of those mods that will help alleviate the frustration that pops up when I'm playing because I have to literally watch what my Sims are doing right before work or school.
