Default More Energy From Expresso Machines!!! Ts3
Does anyone know if there was an expresso machine tweaked to max out energy? My Sims are always low on energy, and the only thing that increases it, is going to sleep. They keep losing their jobs because of low energy. Someone did it with TOS and TS2, but I can't find it. Please help me. I'm going crazy with this lack of energy!! Thanks!

investing in an expensive bed really helps.

I think the coffee works differently in TS3 than TS2. In TS3, it doesn't increase energy, but suspend it. So you're not going to be able to find a mod that does what you want.

You can get better beds, which is the easiest solution... or you can try getting the "meditative trance sleep" reward.

There are surprisingly few ways to increase energy levels in this game. And yes, (imitating my mother's voice) "There are no substitutes for planning ahead and getting a good night's sleep on a high quality bed."

Munching on some of the herbs from Uni can help a little, but much like coffee or eating coffee beans, that really just stalls the energy depletion when levels are at or near the bottom and unless you grow or find high quality herbs, there is Herb Nausea to contend with. Then there is the miracle of TrimaSim pills:

But the mod you were probably really looking for is here: http://modthesims.info/d/520627

Of course, it could be argued that instead of popping pills and washing them down with coffee every day, one could use testingcheatsenabled and drag the energy bars of our sims up ourselves. Yes, that's cheating but so are the pills. We are really meant to snooze our sims better and at the appropriate times of the day/night for their work schedules.

There is this mod that sets all the beds as the same energy gain, if the higher gain beds don't match your decor. I think you can set it to be whatever you want.

If your sim goes to the Spa and buys an expensive Package treatment (or possibly some of the more expensive massages, too?), that will raise all of his/her bars to max, even Energy! And it's not a cheat, but costs simoleons.

I use Buzzler's same energy gain for every bed mod that JessiL linked to and also Twoftmama's Hot Beverages Give Energy v5 - requires free registration to view and download from the website.
