#gamedev #devdiary Refactoring sleep need and behavior. Each actor chooses the best available place to sleep. Maybe in a hut or around a campfire. Or maybe the only option is to sleep in the open.

Sleep component is implemented in order to support traits, so a child could sleep more than an adult and an elder will wake earlier in the morning.

Is very easy to mod a building in order to allow people sleeping inside. You only have to add the “sleep service component” and configure vacancies.
