In this Mod i deleted the StaticCommodity Watch_TV, ReadBooks and CareerTalk to prevent Nannies from doing those Interactions Autonomous.

I added “Desire 100” to the following Interactions for better Autonomous Behaviour:
baby_CooAt
baby_BottleFeed_Looping
baby_Bounce
baby_ChangeDiaper
baby_Cuddle
baby_HoldOut
baby_Rock
baby_Shoosh
jungleGymBoat_AdultAttack
jungleGymRocketShip_AdultAttack
DollHouse_Play_Join
baby_Talk
baby_MakeFace
mentor_ActivityTable_Nanny
mentor_ChildHomework_Nanny
mentor_Piano_Nanny
mentor_Violin_Nanny
mentor_Swimming_Nanny
mentor_Swimming_LearntoSwim_Nanny
sim_Toddler_CheckToddler_Emergency

Added Autonomous Behaviour to the following Interactions (may add more later on):
sim_Toddler_CheckToddler
sim_Toddler_CheckToddler_Minor
read_to_children
Flash_Cards_Toddler_Social
Flash_Cards_Toddler_Counting
Flash_Cards_Toddler_Objects
Flash_Cards_Toddler_Letters
Flash_Cards_Toddler_Animals
read_to_toddlerOnly
mentor_TeenHomework
Toddler_Roughhouse
Toddler_Comfort
SchoolProjectBox_Helper_AssistChooser

The NoCooking Version prevents Nannies from Cooking for Kids. They’ll still feed the Babies. They’ll cook if you ask them too with my Ask to Cook/Bake Mod

  1. This is SO cool. I was asking gamer friends how to make a mod like this (I never have) and they pointed me to you. Thank you!!

  2. Just a heads up the Better Nanny No Cooking file causes the Help with Homework option to disappear for Adults interacting with Teens. It doesn’t happen with the Nanny Age Young Adult – Elder file though.

  3. HI,

    I wanted the second Nanny, 8am-10pm and for them not to waste time doing non-nanny things. I installed:
    Regular_workingtime_8am-10pm_plusweekend, Hire2nanny_workingtime_8am-10pm_plusweekend,
    Betternanny.

    Everything works great but they are still sitting around chatting. Whatta I do wrong?

    1. I did not disable the Social Motive at all i just adjusted them to work better/faster. There is a Mod out there on MTS which disables all Motives maybe that will work for you.

  4. Its not showing up at all in my game. The other mods works fine just not the nanny one. I dont know if I dropped the wrong files into my mods or what. I Added better nanny, second nanny and main nanny hours. That didn’t work so I took out the better nanny file, and left second nanny with the main nanny hours of course onlt 1 file each catagory and its still not showing up in game. Wierd because all others works so im not sure if its a mistake on my end or not

    1. Alright i guess you mean you don’t see the Option to hire a regular Nanny and the Second Nanny. Everything else is not really visible.

      Which Versions did you install exactly? I will then check those out in my Game.

      1. Latest Version: 15.11.2017 one. Yes I can hire a regular nanny. But he doesn’t come at the times that that is on the mod that I dropped into my mods folder. Instead comes at normal times based off the EA. Also he only shows up on the days that the dad works and not the days of the mod. And no there is no option to hire a second nanny. I was using a butler and a nanny, but the butler keeps removing dog bowls so decided to go this route and get rid of the butler. Another thing I have tried is placing the files directly into my mods folder, after having them in a folder under mods. But neither way seems to work directly nor indirectly.

  5. LittleMsSam_Regular_WorkingTime_2pm-8pm.package
    LittleMsSam_Hire2Nanny_WorkingTime_2pm-8pm.package
    LittleMsSam_Nanny_Age_YoungAdult.package
    These are the files I dropped into the mods folder.
    At first I added “LittleMsSam_BetterNanny.package” to the group and it didnt work so I removed the “LittleMsSam_BetterNanny.package” and just tested the 3 at top and it still didnt work.

    1. Alright i will check those out this weekend. One thing i can say already is that if you don’t have the Better Nanny Part you need the Hire2NannyOption File instead to be able to hire a second Nanny.

        1. So tried it for a few ingame days and everything worked like it should. Both Nannies came around 2pm and went home at 8pm. You can try to reinstall and deleting your cache. If you have other Mods you should also check if you have a Mod Conflict.

  6. can we pick and choose the parts of the mod we want? eg. I only want a regular nanny and I am not interested in younger nannies or nanies without clothes? is it okay to put only the regular service in game?

  7. Hello LittleMissSam, and Ty! MCD says this conflicts with *sibling care tweaks* mod by Bienchen83. IDK if you are familiar with that mod but is this a true conflict or can these be safely used together? If not, could you please help me with a workaround (if it’s as easy as editing one or two lines in a tuning file, I can do that!) Or, does your mod already implement these features?

    1. Did a quick look into her Mod and i can at least tell you we use both 11 Files regarding the Baby care. I cannot tell you what exactly she changed so i can not really tell you how to merge both without it ending up in a mess.

  8. Wondering- could I add gardening, cleaning, and repairing to the nanny’s list of autonomous actions to… well, basically create a butler that can go to any lot type? xD

    1. Technically you can add those to the Nanny too yeah. You would need to add the Static Commodities for those to the Nanny Buff.

  9. Is there a way I can make a sim already in my game file the nanny? I have made the sim already but I don’t know if she will show up as the nanny

    1. Not sure but you could try to give the Sim the Nanny trait via Cheat “traits.equip_trait trait_isNanny” and then see if they show up when you hire a nanny

  10. Don’t get me wrong, because I love your site, adore your mods – and you’re pretty much my only perm Paetron – but what is your obsession with yonger? There’s nothing wrong with a Sim with some years on them.

    1. I would not call one Addon with Age Options as Obsession ;P Sure there is nothing wrong with older Nannies but there is also nothing wrong with younger ones and having a Choice 😉

  11. hey, just curious did you rename the age part of the nanny mod? my last file was called LittleMsSam_Nanny_Age_YoungAdult-Elder and the new one now is called LittleMsSam_BetterNanny_Nanny_Age_YoungAdult-Elder
    just wanna make sure I don’t mix something up here

    1. Yes i did that to better find the Files if you want to delete them for example. That’s why i added BetterNanny in all Files.

      1. ok thanks 😀 I was a little bit confused because I usually drag them into my mod folder and overwrite them and that didn’t worked this time 😀

  12. Im a bit confused as to what this means “Within the zip File you’ll find the several Options (Only install one Version!) If you don’t use the “Better Nanny” Part below, you’ll need to install the Hire2NannyOption File too!”

    1. If you don’t use LittleMsSam_BetterNanny.package or LittleMsSam_BetterNanny_NoCooking.package you need the Hire2NannyOption so you can hire a second Nanny.
