Update! Added the separate version (separate files) and the faster version (from 1 to 7 minutes for shower and from 10 to 20 minutes for bath). Use the only one version!
___________
Update! Added the Thoughtful shower with the value in 10 minutes instead 15 in the base version and added the separate version with the value in 3 minutes instead 15. The separate version will conflict with the base version.

Hi guys!

I made a few mods for taking shower and bath. With these mods you can now:

- take a brisk shower for 7-10 minutes instead of 20;
- take a cold shower for 3 minutes instead of 10 (i think no one wants to take it longer);
- take a steamy shower for 15 minutes instead of 10;
- take a thoughtful shower for 10 minutes instead of 15;
- take a bath for 20 minutes instead of 50;
- take a bath with citrus for 20-40 minutes instead of 20;
- take a bath with lavander foam for 20-40 minutes instead of 20;
- take a bath with honey milk for 30-40 minutes instead of 20;
- take a bath with rose petal for 20-40 minutes instead of 20;
- take a bubble bath for 30-40 minutes instead of 45-60;
- take a mud bath for 20-40 minutes instead of 45-60.

I just want to make it more realistic like it may be in real life.

Other files i didn't change because i think that their values are normal.

I hope you like it!

No, it can't conflict with MC (MC does the same things using scripts, not tunings), but this mod maybe doesn't work with the latest patch. I don't know yet, 'cause i didn't update my game.

Sorry for i didn't answer for a long time. I've been a little busy.
I don't know what do you mean speaking of "broken in the middle", 'cause i just changed min and max time to take a shower in interaction files and in my game sims take a shower for a set time. And what about faster or longer... in the description of this mod i described all the variants of taking a shower and a bath, some of them are faster (depends on the type of shower and bath), some are longer, but not longer or faster in general. I just wanted to make it more realistic.
But! Anyway if a hygiene level is very low your sim will take a shower longer than this mod sets (i didn't change "time overhead" parameter that maybe answer for that), because my mod changes only a duration (or time) of taking a shower but it doesn't change a speed.

With "broken in the middle" I mean that they seem to stop shower before they are clean. I thought the mod made sims hygienic motive full faster.

Example:
- take a brisk shower for 7-10 minutes instead of 20;

The time is more realisic but the result is not. In real life you shower till you are clean don't you?
Is it not possible to set hygienic motive to full after those 7-10 minutes.

I don't know, my sims don't stop shower before they are completely clean. I tested my mod with the different hygiene level, just if they are very dirty, they take a shower longer than my mod sets. Maybe do you have another similar mod and it conflicts with mine? Or maybe something changed with the latest patch...

I just know about a little bug when sims with a very low hygiene level take a shower longer ('cause i didn't changed "timeoverhead"), but no one told me about "broken in the middle" bug.
________________________________
Update. I checked this. You were right. It's broken in the middle interaction and no matter sims hygienic motive is full or not. Thank you so much for your note. I don't know why everything was ok when i was testing that at first time (i myself play with my mods). And i noticed that it happens with only the thought shower. I'll fix that in the near future. I just will change the speed of taking a shower too for options with faster shower.

Have you checked compatibility with latest Patch? Very unclear about that. Thank you. This mod would be a great enhancement.

So nothing?????????????????

Hi,

When I click on a bath, some of the options are blank. I get the options to take a bath or a soak but if it's an emotional bath, the options are blank. I can still click on them but there's no writing.

Any ideas what could cause this?

Hi there,

I LOVE this mod, but it is not working ever since the latest patch. I deleted the old file and reinstalled, but my sim is still taking 30+ min showers. Do you have any ideas or know if any conflicting mods? Thank you for your help in advance.

I had to uninstall for the same issue, along with two other mods causing problems. Missing pie menu options and no text when the loading diamond is on screen.
The other two mods http://modthesims.info/d/552222 was causing the missing text under the diamond as well.
Another mod which I can't seem to find right now for a link right now was causing the main menu to have missing text and text to go missing in the options. (This is more of a trait mod cough flirty cough LOL)
Along with one that was causing the options bubbles and X Check Marks (Yes/ No) to just turn into well, blobs of color. Sorry, deleted that and forgot the name of it.
