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)

With this mod sims can dry off to a few wet uncomfortable moodlets or change into and out of a towel manually. They will also change out of it autonomously if left to their own devices.

These are overrides of EA items given custom tuning and moved to Bathroom Accents if they weren't there already. They shouldn't conflict with anything unless you have something else that happens to modify these objects specifically. In any case, please let me know if you have any problems with it.

For best results use this mod with a Towel After Shower mod such as the ones by LittleMsSam or Scanner. They're not technically required, but it will look nicer. Or try it with SimRealist's HLC mod instead for some slight integration.
  • Basegame Hanging Towel (5 versions)
  • Basegame Folded Towels
  • Basegame Towel Shelf
  • Basegame Robe
  • Bathroom Clutter Kit Towels
  • Bathroom Clutter Kit Used Towels
  • Bathroom Clutter Kit Towel Stack*
  • Fitness Stuff Pack Hanging Towel
  • Growing Together Towel Pegs
  • Get Famous Floor Towel Rack
  • Laundry Day Hanging Towels
  • Seasons Hanging Towels
  • Spa Day Rolled Towels
*Includes bonus functionality if you have Functional Shower Supplies installed

Update 4/20/23:
  • Updated towel shelf object for new swatch and slots.
  • Fixed an incorrect tuning ID on one of my custom swatches that caused some weirdness when recoloring.

Past Updates:


It's worth noting that the new strings are in English, French, Polish, and Russian only at the moment. I don't speak any other languages nearly well enough to translate them so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.

Compatibility:
  • SimRealist's HLC:
    - My towels will remove the "Wet Clothes" buff that you get from not doing laundry. Think of it as using a not-quite-clean towel in an emergency. It's not automatic so you can choose to do it or not.
    - The HLC Towel Functionality addon will make stacked and rolled towels behave like a combination of my towels and HLC's as long as you have HLC installed.

Addons:
  • Colored Towels: The Colored Towels addon is optional and randomizes the color of the towels sims wear. This also shouldn't conflict with anything but please read the known issues.
  • HLC Towel Functionality:
    - This makes stacked and rolled towels behave like a combination of my towels and HLC's as long as you have HLC installed.
    - Just make sure it's in the same folder as the main Functional Bath Towels mod so it can override properly.
    - Let me know if you experience issues with it because I haven't worked with states much yet.

Known Issues
  • The Colored Towels addon gives random colored towels everywhere, including at the spa. It's just a choice you'll have to make unless I figure out how to do my own version of the Towel After Shower mod
  • The Get Famous towels may have an issue if it's up against the wall. Try holding down Alt and placing it a little further from the wall if you experience this issue.
  • These don't seem to play nicely with Wicked Whims nudity. Nothing breaks, but you can't click on them while the sim is naked or partly naked. I'll see if there's something I can change to deal with that, but I'm not going to count on it.

Future Plans
  • Keep trying to make my own Towel After Shower mod with a fix for multicolored towels at spas

Thank you!
