This mod is updated to V2 for the 1.19 patch.

When exiting a shower at the Gym or the Spa Day venue, sims are wearing a towel for a few minutes before switching back to everyday clothing.

This mod adds that function to Residential and all other venue types. Also sims will be wearing the towel for around 30 minutes before switching to normal clothing.

The mod uses the XML files

Unzip the file and place the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.

Created with the use of s4pe by Kuree and accomplices, and the Sims 4 XML Extractor by scumbumbo.

I'm rather new to this kind of modding (Sims games are nearly impossible for me to figure out).
At first glance, this mod seems rather simple (even when opening it in Package Editor, only a few files exist within it). XML, fortunately, is a text file, meaning it is very easy to edit (once one knows how to read it and understand what they are editing).
As such, I wanted to make some changes of my own (don't worry, I have no intention of reuploading it anywhere). I want to change the selected outfit the Sims use, and the amount of time (preferably removing the time entirely, so they remain as they are until a situation or the player causes them to change again).
In the original mod, I seemed to have disabled the time (lines 62, 64, and 65, which are "enabled" followed by "lower_bound 20" and "upper_bound 30". This seemed like the time range at which they would automatically change back into normal, so I changed line 62 to "Disabled", and I have not had an automatic change yet. However, I have not found a similar set of lines in the new mod (linked above).
So, which part of which file(s) do I need to change to edit or remove the time and change the desired outfit?

The updated Version uses the the same Files. Just the Code changed a bit and is now called lock_out_time. The "withBath" Version has a few custom Files as well. There in one of the two Buffs (buff_isWearingTowelAfterBathPreventerSCITE) is a max_duration of 30/60 minutes.

Ah. Thanks for the reply. I found the lock_out section.
So, which part determines the outfit that is used?
#104 Old 24th Sep 2020 at 6:01 PM
The change_outfit code. The Category_Everyday means Sims will change in the Everday Outfit.

Should still be compatible with game patch: 1.67.45.
