[XND] AutoOwl

Note: This is an updated version of AutoOwl by Dazz Aephiex, additionally no longer needing HugsLib (now solely uses the Harmony Patch Library by Brrainz, included with this).

GitHub source code: https://github.com/XeoNovaDan/AutoOwl


This mod makes it so that colonists and prisoners with the trait Night Owl will have an alternative initial schedule to avoid working during the day and suffering -10 mood as a result.

Regular Colonists: sleep at 0-5 and 22-23

Night Owls: sleep at 11-18

This mod only changes the initial schedule upon pawn generation; existing Night Owls will NOT have their schedule changed.

Incompatibility: Issues have been reported with Humanoid Alien Races 2.0 in the past -- not confirmed with the latest version though
Old Save Compatible: Yes
Safely Removable: Yes

doesn't work with "People Can Change" mod where someone can suddenly become a nightowl and then change back again a day later.

maybe set a default nightowl restriction, and then detect it twice a day? just as an option would be amazing.

Hmm... I don't have any problems with this. Most likely some other mod is causing incompatibilities, not the other way around.

Currently with 1.0 this mod is causing my colonists to not be able to be drafted. will post mod list later

I had so many colonies with fussy nightowls in the past, so when I saw this, I thought, "MAN that'd be helpful." This is, ever since I added the mod, RNG has decided there's no such thing as nocturnal pawns anymore. Go figure, right?

Another update (again by Dingo) which now fixes night owl prisoners so that they too will follow the night owl schedule.

Alright, pushed an update that was actually a direct contribution by Dingo, who himself has made some great mods like No Forced Slowdown and Hand Me That Brick. Should fix some bugs.

Alright, incompatibility noted for now which I will address at some point.

Really like the idea of this mod but sadly it messes up my scheduals on every load. Also playing with humanoid races 2.0.

This is interesting. I started using the first night owl last night and was thinking.. this should exist.
