How do I enable maternity leave only AFTER the baby is born?

  2. Click on the City Hall Building/Map Tag or any computer
  3. Select: NRaas > Retuner > Settings > General > ByTunableXML > Sims3.Gameplay.ActorSystems > Pregnancy > kPregnantDaysOff

How do I turn off maternity leave completely?


If you are using Story Progression, the setting is in the Caste System and is meant to be in addition to the EA value. Setting it to zero will not reduce the days of maternity leave - you will need to set it to a negative number as follows:-
  1. Using StoryProgression
  2. Click on the City Hall Building or Map Tag
  3. Select: NRaas > Story Progression > Options: Caste > Active Family > Pregnancy: Maternity Leave
  4. Set the value to -4
