COMPATIBILITY: patch 1.67.2 confirmed

I was getting quite annoyed by my Sims whining constantly and throwing tantrums that they didn't have enough food or sleep or toilets. Tsk, what am I, a god-like player that has to provide everything for them? (Oh, wait...)


n00bs!

What does this do?
So I made this mod which removes the whining and throwing tantrums completely! It does not remove the thought balloon above their heads, though. Since that is not as annoying and is a helpful visual cue for when your Sim does have a failing motive.
It works for ages child through elder for both female and male. Toddlers and babies actually have reasons for throwing tantrums... you know, 'cause they're young!



Compatibility
Patch level compatibility: 1.26 to 1.63 PLEASE READ: this mod WILL NEVER EVER make your game crash. This is just impossible, it's not a theory, it is just impossible because of the way this mod works and the game engine works, simple as that. Because of this it is also future proof and won't need updating (especially this late in the game, since Sims 4 is around the corner). So if you DO have problems, please verify your mods framework.

Conflicts
The way this mod is set up is extremely simple and has no custom coding whatsoever, nor does it alter existing XML's. This mod will only conflict with other mods that would change these CLIP files (which is highly unlikely, unless there's an animation replacement mod you're using):
a_motDistress_sleepy_x
a_motDistress_bladder_x
a_motDistress_hunger_x
a_motDistress_tired_x
c_motDistress_tired_x
c_motdistress_bladder_x
c_motDistress_sleepy_x
c_motDistress_hunger_x
a_buff_hungry_x
c_buff_hungry_x

Been using this a long time and don't know how I played without it. Thanks.

Do you think the same method could be used to disable the clapping sims do? I think it has something to do with celebrity, but now I see the animation like every 10 seconds and I'm sick of waiting for it to end before the game can continue.

It can go in either. "Packages" should be fine, unless you have another animation replacer mod.

Who are you kidding? You ARE a God for making this mod! Hahaha. Needless to say, I love it already. Imagine if all YA's and later life stages behaved that way in real life! (Teens do still tend to throw fits, in their own little ways!).. Thank you a billion for this!

Is there a version of this that only work for townies/dormies? My problem with them is they bitch and whine about it, but they don't actually go take care of the need. With my playables, at least I can direct them to use the bathroom items.

You've just made my life 300% better, I was about to become a tantruming sim myself from all the tantruming!

*whispers* sims 3, no one behaves like that, please stop
