I tried the 15% version but the energy motive barely decreased any throughout the day on my sims, very fishy, not expected. I checked the base game vs your versions and found you're using incorrect values, at least under the energy motive.

normal game decay for Energy is 0.1389

so the values for energy decay rate should be:
0.1389 - (0.1389 x 0.15) = 0.118065
0.1389 - (0.1389 x 0.30) = 0.09723
0.1389 - (0.1389 x 0.50) = 0.06945

in your mod versions the values you have compute to:
15% ver: 1 - (0.04132275 / 0.1389) = 70.25% reduction?
30% ver: 1 - (0.0340305 / 0.1389) = 75.5% reduction?
50% ver: 1 - (0.0243075 / 0.1389) = 82.5% reduction? << clearly something is funky with the equation you're using, or some other factor is at play.

just thought I'd let you know some helpful feedback so you can get it sorted out ! I'd double check all your values

Thank you for the information.
When i updated mod last time i save XMLs and made a specific values to some of my friends on a folder and maybe i mistaken replace some files and compile it and upload it here.

Will look after it soon :D

------
v1.3 added, thanks flerb for the information.
if something wrong, please informed me everyone,because i use custom values for myself not use the uploaded version :D

Hi, I recently downloaded the update to this mod and I'm having trouble with it. I downloaded and tested all three files (not at the same time of course) just to see the differences and with each one, I noticed no change in decay. Needs were decaying like normal. I never had problems before the update so I'm not sure what the issue could be.

Like @flerb says, i did miscalculation and mistake on 2 version before the latest one, and it make the decay very slow.
Are u updated your game to latest version? maybe Maxis made some changes on XMLs and mod broken, i not updated my game yet, still on 1.39. Will update it and check it on my laptop tomorrow.

Anyone have this problem too?

It's a really great mod but would it be possible to get some thing around 20-25%? when I originally downloaded this mod had actually download one that said it was a 20%, Then after several patches I came back to make sure my mod was a current version and you only had the 15 and 30 versions when i had to re download it, Thing is the 30 version is to strong for my sims and the 15 version is just so weak that it's like I just went back to playing with out your mod at all.

I'd love different versions of this mod in the future - maybe with just a bit more decay than this one but slower than the regular speed. But otherwise, I'm fully updated and patched and this mod works like a charm. Very good when all I want to do is focus on social aspect of game. Thank you!!

Thank you for resurrecting this mod. In real life people do not take baths so often in cold climate and they take baths more often in warm climate. So thank you for doing this. Also, it just makes more sense and your mod is more realistic.
