Updated for Patch 9/3/20 <-- No Changes needed

PANDORA SIMS stole one of my mods! Please read spoiler to see what you can do!


I don't mind if you make changes to any of these files in any of my mods as long as it is PERSONAL USE ONLY
Continue Reading:

Change Log: 9/6/20 <--See what's new!
Always delete old file and replace with the new file!

There have been a couple other mods created to help the speed of showers and baths. However, it hasn't been updated since August of 2016 and there have been multiple comments saying it doesn't work or is broke. If you would like to see the mod you can find it HERE

I think it is ridiculous on how slow the sims are in doing things. I understand it taking some time to do things but 75min for a basic shower? Really! lol So I decided to take a look at what all needed to be done to fix that. I decided not to change the actual showers or tubs to make them faster. Instead of having that many different files I chose only to change a few files instead and by doing that it effects all the showers and bathtubs for that interaction I didn't change all of the different possibilies since the others seemed more like they probably should take longer. For instance, taking a mud bath or one of the other specialty baths. If your gonna pay money you might as well get to have it longer!

NEW
I was requested to update a mod along with adding the option to this mod. My updated version of the mod Shower Bladder Reliever
Now I took some time to think on this request. Most requests I do take into consideration on if my knowledge of coding is good enough to accomplish. This one wasn't hard just wasn't sure how or if I should incorporate it into this mod. So this is what I have come up with for now. Since there is already the mod that I updated that allows for sims to relieve their bladder in the shower and I also went ahead and added 2 flavors to it. I decided the fact that the sims are now saving time because they don't need to use the toilet that it will already increase the time spent to almost the times in this mod. So what I did instead of adding it to all the interactions is I only did it to one interaction. I decided to add it to the Brisk Shower only. Since the sim is already in a hurry that this would probably be the best choice. I didn't feel that a sim getting flirty and steamy in the shower would be doing this anyway-um seems like it would ruin the mood? lol So to make the story short you will have 3 options with this mod now. The original is still the same, nothing changed. The 2 added flavors will say bladder relief in the title to help you with getting the right one. These are only based on traits. The spoilers for each one will explain more on the traits on what they mean and do.

If I were to figure out, or someone would help me, I would rather just add an option for the user to decide during or before the shower to relieve the bladder instead of it being automatic. At this time I have not researched or experimented with new codes to accomplish this thought.

NEW FLAVORS:

This mod will conflict with any other mod that modifies these XML files:

Thanks for making this. Sims do take forever to do simple things and ought to have a chance to do it in a reasonable amount of time. Am going to look for something to let them eat faster, next. But I do wish that they didn't have to be slobs or otherwise have a trait-based reason to pee in the shower. Maybe I'm a shameless slob, but I assumed everyone did it as a matter of course. I just see it as efficient and sensible. If there were a flavor to make it a universal behavior I would take that one. I would reserve peeing in the sink to slobs, lazy, etc. hehe

Is this still working in 1.59.73.1020?

Sometimes the hygien indicator is not moving at all and the sim leaves the shower as dirty as it went in.


Edit:

This is probably fixed in latest patch 1.60
Fixed an issue in which Hygiene was not being resolved when Taking a Shower on any Bathtub and Shower Combo.

I think as an alternate "flavor" there should be one with traits that never relieve themselves instead , like Perfectionist, Snob, etc. Just a thought, since most people I think wouldn't mind taking a quick shower with an in-shower potty break if they're bladder is full.

One flavor uses a lot of files and since currently all flavors use the same files I will not be creating any more flavors. Just takes way to long when there are changes needed for updates. If one day I figure out how to shorten the flies in each flavor I will consider adding another flavor.

Thank you for this it works great! Faster showers and eating are lifesavers!

I was wondering, as I cant find an updated version of a mod like this (only one I found is from 2011), could you make a mod that made going to the toilet (+washing hands afterwards) and brushing teeth faster as well?

Thanks for this much needed mod! One question: what is the different between a basic shower and a brisk shower now, other than a few minutes? Why would my sim ever take a basic shower? ha

Hi! Firstly, this mod is a freaking great quality of life mod, thank you so SO much for keeping it up to date.

I have a question though. As you've already noted in the comments here, there's no point in making a combined mod that allows sims of all traits/moods/etc to pee in the shower because you already have a mod that does that (shower bladder reliever mod). My question is, in the description page of your shower bladder reliever mod you have stated that it conflicts with this (faster showers & baths) mod; is that still the case? I deliberately avoided running both mods together because of that line, but the way you commented here about there not being a point in making it work for all traits because the other mod exists makes me think they'll work together just fine?

They will conflict because they change the same file.

UPDATE:

Mod is fine with patch on 9/3/20

FIXED: All showers should clean your sims completely

I must of missed it in one of the patches where they added a new test. It cleaned your sims based on how clean the shower was. Now to me that is just plain dumb. I have that fixed now. However if you find one of the shower interactions not fully washing a sim with their hygiene all they way red let me know.

Thank you for all of your support!
