About this mod

This mod adds the needs of eating, drinking, pissing, and sleeping to the player.
For each need, you can define how much time you can spend without satisfying the need. If too much time will pass some penalties will be applied.

Permissions and credits
This mod adds a set of needs about eating, sleeping, drinking, talking, pissing, etc. to the player.
For each need, you can define how much time you can spend without satisfying the need. If too much time will pass some penalties will be applied.

If you don't eat for too long your health will suffer (but you will not automatically die.)

If you don't drink (wine, ale, or water) for too long, your stamina will suffer.

If you don't sleep enough, your magicka will suffer.
It is possible also to have a blurry vision.

You have to talk from time to time, if you don't then all your magic abilities will be reduced.

Sex (only if SexLab is installed)
If you have SexLab (of course you have it), you can also enable another "need" that is the one of have sex. If you don't do sex often enough, you will start to masturbate.
You can define also that you cannot have sex in public. But in case you can't do sex, then your weapons will be removed and you may assume for a few seconds a horny position where you cannot move.
By request, in case you do blowjobs the result will be considered as food.

If you don't take a leak from time to time, you will slow down.
You can urinate in multiple, selectable, ways: a spell, a shout, or a key.
It is possible to set that you cannot urinate in public (when seen by other NPCs.)

If you don't do your business, your carry weight will be reduced, and you may have random diarrhea.
You can defecate in multiple, selectable, ways: a spell, a shout, or a key.
It is possible to set that you cannot defecate in public (when seen by other NPCs.)

You are addicted to Skooma and you need to consume it. If you don't consume it for too long, your combat abilities will be reduced and your vision will be altered.

You are addicted to alcoholic beverages (ale and wine) and you need to consume it. If you don't consume it for too long, your speech and stealth abilities will be reduced, and your thirstiness will increase.

Weed (only if Cannabis Skyrim)
You are addicted to cannabis and you need to consume it. If you don't consume it for too long, your armor defenses will be reduced and your vision will be altered, and your hungriness will increase.

Being Drunk
Not really a need. This will add the feature of being drunk when you drink alcoholic beverages.

For the specified amount of time, after you drink some alcohol, you will have a double vision, you may pick the wrong weapon, and you will have random alterations in your movement speed.

Some foods, like soups, are considered liquid foods and will satisfy both the need of eating and the need of drinking

Each need can be enabled or disabled in the MCM. You can use only the needs you want.

The number of hours before starting to suffer can be specified. Many needs allow specifying what will be the maximum percentage of damage inflicted when not satisfied.

You can also enable the animations for eating, drinking, pissing, and defecating. The animation for eating and drinking will try to use the best possible anim object according to the food or drink type.

All food items of the game and DLCs are a valid source of food, and all drinks from the game and DLCs are a valid source of liquids.

Some needs (Eating, Drinking, and Sleeping) give you the ability to damage the stats, or to stop the regeneration. Or both together.

In case you have one or more of the following mods (that are not a dependency) also their foods, drinks, and other items are used.
  • Requiem
  • Complete Alchemy & Cooking Overhaul
  • Cutting Room Floor
  • SexLab Skooma Whore
  • Cannabis Skyrim
  • Be a Milk Drinker (Legendary)
  • Hunterborn
The mod can also add widgets (that can be placed in many different ways, configurable in the MCM) showing the actual need to satisfy the basic exigencies. (Widgets can be fully disabled.)
Water bottles
You can find a "Water bottle" that you can drink. Once you drink it, you will have an "Empty water bottle". If you use this bottle when you are inside the water (a river for example) it will be filled again.
There are also recipes to "build" an empty water bottle, you just need an empty wine bottle and a Blue Mountain Flower. You can build them at cooking spots.
Included translations: English, Italian, French, Russian.
Advanced Stuff
The mod can be used in a Simple or Advanced mode.
Simple mode will have just 3 MCM pages and about all advanced options will be managed automatically.
Advanced mode will have many MCM pages and you can set all the options in detail to better fulfill your game experience.
You can switch between the two modes in the MCM. After switching the MCM will automatically close.
When switching to Simple mode there is an option to reset all configuration values to the default values.

- Adding drinks and food from other mods
In case you consume an item from a mod that is not known, you will see the item in the specific MCM page (only for Advanced mode), here you can define what the item was (Food, Drink, Liquid food, Alcohol, Skooma, Weed, etc.)
All known and defined items are saved in a JSON file, in case you have PapyrusUtils. This allows exchanging the food definition between different players.

- Interacting via ModEvents
The mod listen for two mod events: MiniNeedsSetValue and MiniNeedsGetValue
MiniNeedsSetValue: if you send this mod event with a string parameter and an int parameter, you will be able to set the actual percentage of the need.
MiniNeedsGetValue: if you send this mod event with a string parameter, you will receive another Mod Event "MiniNeedsValue" (you have to subscribe to it) to get the actual value of a need.
Possible values for the string parameter:
  • Eat: get or set the percentage of the Eating need
  • Drink: get or set the percentage of the Drinking need
  • Sleep: get or set the percentage of the Sleeping need
  • Talk: get or set the percentage of the Talking need
  • Sex: get or set the percentage of the Sex need
  • Piss: get or set the percentage of the Urination need
  • Poop: get or set the percentage of the Defecation need
  • Skooma: get or set the percentage of the Skooma need
  • Alcohol: get or set the percentage of the Alcohol need
  • Weed: get or set the percentage of the Weed need
  • Drunk: get or set the percentage of being drunk
  • All: only for the event MiniNeedsGetValue, send all values for all needs 

The mod was done by an idea  @Southwarth (for a simplified version of iNeeds)
A big thank you to @komotor for the pose animation, fixing all the AnimObjects, and the pooping animation
Thanks to @Melodic @ for the Russian translation

Use your favorite Mod Manager. If you had a previous version of MiniNeeds, you need to uninstall it first, and clean the save from all scripts starting with the "mnd" string. In all cases, a clean save is recommended.
If you find bugs, just report them, I will fix them as soon as possible. be aware that V2 is a full re-write of the mod and, also if I have done many tests, there can be bugs inside.

The mod adds a pose (used for the screenshot and the MCM) that can be used by sending the event "mndPose" (in the console, click on the actor and type SAE mndPose)
