Increased Energy from Drinks Mod
Have you noticed that coffee and other caffeinated drinks in the Sims 4 don’t seem to give much of an energy boost to your Sims? This mod will fix that! I went through and added an increased energy boost to all coffee, espresso, tea, soda, and other energy drinks from all the packs. I tried to give a realistic boost depending on the type of drink. I used my knowledge of coffee as a baseline then did a lot of Googling to see what drinks had more or less caffeine than coffee and adjusted the energy boost values accordingly. So regular coffee has more of an energy boost than most types of tea and then espresso has the biggest boost of all. Not all tea is created equal of course! Black teas have a stronger boost than herbal teas and chamomile tea has no boost at all. Protein shakes from the Fitness skill also now give a big energy boost to help your workout. The energy boost works for drinks that you create at home, purchase at the café or vender stall, buy at work, or buy from a vending machine.
I tried to find every drink that would have caffeine in it that I could from all expansion packs. There are drinks here from the base game and just about every expansion pack, but you don’t have to have every expansion pack to use this mod. The ones you don’t have, those drinks simply won’t appear in game. Those that do, will get an energy boost.
v2.5 – I have updated this entire mod and every drink in it to work with all of the latest patches and added a few new drinks. I have also consolidated all of the drink mods into ONE FILE rather than several. Please delete all of the old mod files from the previous version of this mod.
If you have suggestions for how to improve this mod, please contact me.
This mod overrides several tuning files for the aforementioned drinks. If you have any other mods affecting drinks such as coffee, tea, soda, etc. then they may conflict with this mod. Please take note of this and be aware.
There is an old mod by cyclelegs over at Mod the Sims which does something similar but has been abandoned for quite a while. Unlike that mod, my mod does not affect the food value or bladder decay value of the drinks. My mod only affects the energy values, and I came up with each energy value for each drink on my own.

I created this mod using Sims 4 Studio, and it was invaluable so thank you to the team behind that program as well! In addition, I made extensive use of the online TDESC Browser along with Scumbumbo’s Tuning Error Notifier. Without those these tools, this mod would never have worked!
