This was requested by chimpee28, thanks for the request chimpee28 great idea.

I hate how my sims constantly want to take baths and/or bath toddlers when they don't actually need it.

This pulls it's textures from the maxis version so all recolor you have will work with this. The one pictured is one of my recolors and can be found here:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=225050

I left the clean option autonomous and set the repair option to autonomous all other options are set to non autonomous.

I've included a non ep version and a pets version. Please only download one as they both use the same GUI.

I hope some of you can use this!

If you notice the 1 tile crib in the photo, it will be my next upload.

Fabulous! It's bad enough that MY sims want to bathe every ten minutes, but when the neighbors come over to welcome the family to the neighborhood, then take a shower, I have to wonder what kind of neighborhood I'm moving into! :-)

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims1ModsByCorylea.html

the bathing when not neccessary - sounds like the by product of seasons that i was getting all the time in game

the inteenimator seasons patch seems to have cured this ( aong with the pets sinking into the ground

any chance of you making the rest of the maxis tubs\showers into non-autonomous? This is the perfect solution to the constantly bathing sims. I have patched and they're still doing it.. :/

Sure I can do a couple more anyway. But are you saying my shower/tub isn't working for you? Or are you saying your have a hack that doesn't work for you?

The tub is fine, it works perfectly. I was referring to some people having reported that their sims showered less after they last patch. I have patched and mine are still revolving their lives around the tub.

Thank you! I saw this and thought I wouldn't need it, but my parent Sims have developed an obsession with bathing their toddler, even when her hygiene is maxed from playing in the toddler pool or toddler shower. They've wasted a crazy number of game hours in walking across the house and pulling the toddler away from her learning toys. They didn't use the shower too obsessively for themselves, but both of them fetching the toddler from the other side of the house one after the other is way too much.

... now I get to see if they pick a new obsessive behavior.
