ask for bedtime story, no autonomous

No one knows everything this mod can do. Did you know you can tune the size of your sims nostrils with this mod? I'm kidding.

ask for bedtime story, no autonomous

Post by JohnL83 » September 23rd, 2019, 1:47 pm

If someone would please, I would like to know where the option in Retuner is located to turn this autonomous action off. I don't mind having the option, but I'd rather do it myself. It can be difficult when you have a lot of children, it's like a zombie attack once they all get tired.

I've searched the site and only found Littlelamby's post about finding the menu option in order to read a child to sleep by command. I looked under several topics as to what type of action this is, but I'm not having any luck. It doesn't seem to be in Retuner>situations, or actors, nor bookshelf, nor any of the other 3 places I looked.

Yes Igazor, I already hear you sir, I do send them to bed manually most of the time, but I'd rather they do that on their own when I am busy minding other Sims. Plus if you have 5-6 children it can take a second to get them each headed that way and they interrupt others who I have doing something else. Once I had triplet children, all three! walk in on Mom/Dad making woohoo. LOL Terrible situation, been there myself as a kid! It's not something you forget no matter how hard you try. :-o

No, I'm not going to tell the OP how to send their kids to bed but I do have another suggestion. Most parents with small children, or anyone really could be pets or the elder in-laws for that matter, have locks on their bedroom doors meant to be used in such situations. Err, on the parents' bedroom door I mean, not that of the children or elder in-laws. :)

Yes, I keep forgetting this. For some reason they don't seem to stick though. I know I've set them to lock, but perhaps they go away if I reset the lot or town??

As for the Retuner setting, I'm assuming I'm not blind and it just isn't there? Oh well, part of having kids I suppose, being interrupted.

I never had my own, but you wouldn't know it by how often I've taken in or cared for others' from my relatives to my godchildren. LOL I'm "Uncle John" to a dozen or so brats.. ahem....kids...hmmmm more like, millennial know-it-alls. I don't exist when they are here except the rare occasions they look up from their phones. (my lack of social media presence is perplexing to them...how dare I like actual eye-contact) Unless they need something the parents won't give them of course. I like to torture them by having them talk to me with their phones in the other room before I "give in". :evil: The youngest just graduated high school this year! So far no I have no "greats"....
OMG that is next isn't it? Great Uncle?.....nooooooooo I'm not old, I'm not old, I'm not old. :cry:

I guess it depends on whether we are talking about the simple door locks provided by the game itself vs. the more complex ones provided by the GoHere mod. But I don't have either dissolving on me that I can recall by way of MC Resets. Maybe the EA ones do, but really it's not difficult to check the lock before woohoo...is it? I mean, that's the digital equivalent of jiggling the doorknob before things get hot and heavy. An alternative might be to send your adult sims on a vacation whenever they want private moments, but that seems a bit extreme.

Don't know about the Retuner setting, perhaps someone else here will come forward with a combo that works for them.
