GLOBAL MOD: Cold/Hot water shower

  1. Updates :
    October 15, 2008 : German text is good now !

  2. Requirement:
    EP5: The Sims 2 Seasons (Windows or Mac OS X)

  3. Installation:
    Put the package in this folder
    Windows users : "My documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads"
    Mac OS X users : "Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads"

  4. What is this mod ?
    • It's a global mod which affects ONLY the "Take a shower" interaction of all shower and bath/shower, all Maxis ones and custom clones.
    • It adds a sub menu which allows you to choose the water warmth between cold and hot.
    • When an autonomous "take a shower" is done, it detects the current sim warmth and choose the proper water warmth.
      NOTE: Actually, cold water is chosen only if the sim warmth is hot or more (greater than 30° Simsius).

  5. Why did I do this mod ?
    Well, since the crumplebottom_marky4444's "Extreme temperatures" mod have been added to my game,
    it's really difficult to avoid the expiring state to my sims !
    And I don't understand why take a shower with hot water when the sim warmth is already too hot !
    So, that's why I did it !

  6. Unaffected object:

  7. Thanks !
    Well, it's my first released mod and I want to say you "thank you" for your help and your patience :

Well now that's a neat idea. I try to avoid hacks in my game but might just have to download this one. Since it, ya know, makes sense and stuff. Thanks!

Thanks for this. Showers making sims hotter in summer was so silly. I saw your thread in mod discussion and I'm glad you got this working, good job! I'm really glad the shower makes an intelligent choice for autonomous showers, that's very useful.

Thanks for this mod! I always wondered why noone made a cold shower for the hot sims!

Thanks again!

Well, it's true, your object doesn't use the global game interaction.
But I think the real Outside Communal Beach Shower have always cold water .

Thank you to report it.

Thanks so much! I was tired of my sims having near heatstroke and all that was available to them was a drink from the sink, or the refrigerator.

Sweet! I like this mod!

What a great idea! Another who couldn't understand why it was never added with Seasons, but then EA forget a lot of daft things. Like, you know, adding Pets functions to GLS items, or making FT/Seasons options available to K&B furniture if one has the EPs, that kinda thing

Thanks for this, will make my Strangetown sims very happy, that's for sure

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

Awesome! Now my Sims won't drink themselves to bloating in an attempt to cool down!

It would be hilarious if it were coded so that taking a cold shower made Romance Wants disappear from the Wants panel. heh

Default Not working for me...
Hey, tried this out and it doesn't seem to be working for me. I have it in my downloads folder but nothing new is coming up option wise under any shower I try. I have all major expansion packs, and the stuff packs FFS, GLS, & CS. The only thing that comes to mind is that I have used an object editing application I got at simwardrobe.com called "The Sim 2 Categorizer." Used it to reprice some of my showers a while back. But I don't think that this should effect a global mod like yours.

Anyway, any feedback on why it's not working for me would be great!

Thanks,

Fred

Just a suggestion, but is it possible for the cold shower to also give a small bonus to your energy level as well?

A cold shower always wakes me up in the morning.
