* Please note that the old version of Smart Lights may have corrupted your pool lights. You will need to delete those pool lights and replace them before they will work again. *

Please use the "nl" version if you have Nightlife. Otherwise, use the original version.

This hack combines the function of the DIY light mods I posted on Variousimmers some time ago to give you auto lights that turn on and off when your sims really want them on or off.

When an awake sim is doing something in a room, the lights will turn on if there are no windows in the room or if it is nighttime.

NEW: Updated Nightlife version (with workaround suggested by Crammyboy).
