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)

I finally figured out what I wanted to do for hand soap! It's actually based on some existing functionality in the game: the soap dispenser upgrade that sinks can get.

The way these objects work is that you just place them near the sink and use the sink as normal. Sims will get a buff just like they do if the sink is upgraded with soap. There are no interactions on the objects themselves, so please don't think they're broken just because you can't click on them.

These are overrides for EA items, giving them custom tuning. It also changes the sink_washHands and sink_washHands_OffTheGrid interactions so anything else that changes those or the objects themselves will conflict.
  • Basegame Soap Pump
  • Get to Work Soap Dispenser
  • Snowy Escape Soap Pumps

Update 7/24/22:
  • Added French translation from Vanessa Sims
  • Edited the buff to use a better name rather than borrowing from EA's upgrade one. I did forget to update that screenshot, but I'll get to it eventually.
  • Added a new version for compatibility with Bienchen's Pimples Mod. For best results place this version in the same folder as Bienchen's mod and do not rename either file. Please read the Compatibility and Downloads details to make sure you use the version you want and install it correctly.
  • Added an interactive option by request. If you didn't like the passive nature of this mod you can now click to get soap before washing your hands instead of using it passively. Sims will not do this when they wash their hands autonomously, but you can make them do it when controlling them. Please read the Downloads details to make sure you use the version you want.

Past Updates:


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

Compatibility
  • Bienchen's Pimples Mod - Download the PM version and choose the PM or PM Passive version. When you install this mod you need to put it in the same folder as Bienchen's mod and not rename either of them. This will ensure that the tuning loads in the correct order.

Future plans
  • If you know of an item I missed let me know.

Thank You!
  • JOKERS - Polish translation (Discord: JOKERS#6159)
  • SER KISYAN - Russian translation
  • Vanessa Sims - French translation

Downloads
There are a lot of variations here so please read everything and reach out to me if something doesn't make sense.
  • Merged contains all objects in one file. Nice and easy if you have all the packs included and want to minimize your mod files. Choose either the original or PM version.
  • ByPack contains a TUNING file and one file per pack. You can pick and choose the packs you have/want. Choose either the original or PM version.
  • Original: Includes original and Interactive. Original has no clickable options and if your sim is near the soap dispenser when they wash their hands they will get the buff. Interactive requires you to click and use the soap.
  • PM: Compatible with Bienchen's Pimples Mod. Includes PM and PM Interactive. PM has no clickable options and if your sim is near the soap dispenser when they wash their hands they will get the buff. PM Interactive requires you to click and use the soap. (Full disclosure, this is actually identical to the other download but is renamed to help make sure things load correctly)
  • PLEASE ONLY USE ONE VERSION (remember that each download contains 2 versions: Passive/original and Interactive)[/b]
