ANNOUNCEMENT! I will no longer be posting new mods on MTS! I'll still maintain the ones here with bug fixes and major updates, but all updates and new mods will be posted on my Website and Patreon (link in profile)

Continuing my mission to make decorative items useful, I've made something more custom than just moving some tuning around. Now when a sim is taking a shower or a bath they have an option to use these body wash and soap objects and get a nice little confidence boost!

These are overrides for EA items, giving them custom tuning and adding those that weren't already in the Bathroom Accents category to it. It shouldn't conflict with anything unless you have something else that happens to modify these objects specifically, but please let me know if you have any problems with it.

I previously had a non-override version because someone was worried about a conflict with Mizoreyukii's No Fade On Everything but looking at that and testing it out it doesn't seem to actually conflict. If you do have an issue try the fixes she links to on that page.
  • Basegame Shower Caddy*
  • Basegame Toiletries*
  • Basegame Masculine Toiletries*
  • Spa Day Soap Dish
  • ADDON: Snowy Escape Soap Dispenser
*These objects have bonus functionality if you have Functional Lotion installed

Update 4/24/22:
  • Add Polish strings from JOKERS
  • Added a new addon by request. ShowerSuppliesHappy changes the buff from confident to happy. Make sure to put it in the same folder as the main mod and do not rename either or it may not override correctly.
  • I realized that having Separate, Merged, and Merged by pack was probably confusing so I’ll be slowly updating all my mods to use a new structure.
  • I also realized that the non-override version is overkill. It was requested because someone was worried about a conflict with Mizoreyukii's No Fade On Everything but looking at that and testing it out it doesn't seem to actually conflict. If you do have an issue try the fixes she links to on that page.
  • So that means that starting with v1.8 the Separate and Non-Override downloads have been discontinued.
  • Now there are two downloads: Merged and ByPack.
    -Merged contains all objects in one file.
    -ByPack contains a TUNING file and one file per pack. You can pick and choose the packs you have/want
    -Each download also contains a file explaining this.
  • Please delete your existing files and redownload one of the new zips because the renamed files won’t overwrite the old ones.

Past Updates:


When a sim is taking a shower or a bath they now have an option to use these objects. It won't add any extra animations on top of the shower or bath animations, but when the progress circle finishes they will get a custom buff based on the toothbrushing buff.

The custom strings are only in:
  • English
  • French
  • Polish (missing addon string)
  • Russian
I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate this myself so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.

Addons
  • The "Happy" addon just changes the buff from confident to happy by request. Make sure to put it in the same folder as the main mod and do not rename either or it may not override correctly.
  • If you have Snowy Escape you can use the SE addon object. There are two versions of the object, override and non-override, and you should choose one. If you are using my Hand Soap mod (coming soon) you should use the non-override version (NO) to avoid a conflict but otherwise you can use whichever you prefer.

Known issues
  • Kids seem to be weird about hopping out of and back into the shower when you use this. It still works, but it looks stupid. Baths seem to work fine for them though. I need to actually look into a solution but I haven't gotten around to it.

Future plans
  • Adding this sort of functionality to showers and tubs that have built-in clutter. It's not as simple as I'd hoped so that's a future thing.
  • If you know of an item I missed let me know

Thank you!
