EA made it so that toddlers can't use their toys if they are on a different level of the house than them, probably because toddlers can't use stairs in the unmodified game. However, there are plenty of hacks to allow some or all toddlers to use stairs now, and this restriction also made it so that toddlers who were outside could not use toys that were inside, or vice versa, even if they could get to them without climbing stairs. For some reason, EA never put this restriction on the potty, however. This hack removes the restriction, allowing you to direct the toddler to use a toy regardless of where they happen to be. No promises about what happens if the toddler can't climb necessary stairs.

Game Compatibility

Should be compatible with all game configurations.

Hack Compatibility

Should not conflict with any hack that doesn't change or remove this restriction. Only modifies global BHAV 0x34D.

I never knew this restriction existed! I always wondered why sometimes I couldn't get toddlers to use toys.

As for me. I had never knew toddlers couldn't use toys on different levels. My toddlers were always fine to use toys on different levels after climb or down stairs by adults with toddlers on hands. Maybe there is any other mod that creates such restrictions. I have mods that just changes graphics but guess I don't have those. I see my game was always fine and won't actually see any reason to download this thing. For vanilla players this mod is useless at all.

Yes, if an adult carrying the toddler brings them to the same level where the toy is, the toddler is no longer on a different level than the toy and the restriction does not apply. The point is so that you don't have to waste the adult's time doing that.
