Decor with a Purpose: Functional Bath Towels

Jump to Patch notes

With this mod sims can dry off to a few wet uncomfortable moodlets or change into a towel manually. They can also use the hanging one to change out of a towel (which they will also do autonomously if left to their own devices).

These are overrides of EA items given custom tuning and moved to Bathroom Accents if they weren’t there already. They shouldn’t conflict with anything unless you have something else that happens to modify these objects specifically. In any case, please let me know if you have any problems with it.

Objects

  • Basegame Hanging Towel (5 versions)
  • Basegame Folded Towels
  • Basegame Towel Shelf
  • Basegame Robe
  • Fitness Stuff Pack Hanging Towel
  • Get Famous Floor Towel Rack
  • Laundry Day Hanging Towels
  • Seasons Hanging Towels
  • Spa Day Rolled Towels

Details

For best results use this mod with a Towel After Shower mod such as the ones by LittleMsSam or Scanner. They're not technically required, but it will look nicer. Or try it with SimRealist's HLC mod instead for some slight integration.
SimRealist's HLC
  • My towels will remove the "Wet Clothes" buff that you get from not doing laundry. Think of it as using a not-quite-clean towel in an emergency. It's not automatic so you can choose to do it or not.
  • The HLC Towel Functionality addon will make stacked and rolled towels behave like a combination of my towels and HLC's as long as you have HLC installed.
The new strings are in:
  • English
  • French
  • Polish
  • Russian
I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate this myself so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.
  • SER_KISYAN - Russian translation
  • Vanessa Sims - French translation
  • Aarathiel - Polish translation

Addons

  • This randomizes the color of the towel sims wear each time they put one on.
  • It doesn't change any functionality, just makes things more colorful.
  • This makes stacked and rolled towels behave like a combination of my towels and HLC's as long as you have HLC installed.
  • Just make sure it's in the same folder as the main Functional Bath Towels mod so it can override properly.
  • Let me know if you experience issues with it because I haven't worked with states much yet.

Known Issues

  • The Colored Towels addon gives random colored towels everywhere, including at the spa. It’s just a choice you’ll have to make unless I figure out how to do my own version of the Towel After Shower mod
  • The Get Famous towels may have an issue if it’s up against the wall. Try holding down Alt and placing it a little further from the wall if you experience this issue.
  • These don’t seem to play nicely with Wicked Whims nudity. Nothing breaks, but you can’t click on them while the sim is naked or partly naked.

Future Plans

  • If you know of an object I missed let me know

Patch Notes

  • Added my towel functionality to the basegame robe. I wanted to do something different with it but couldn't get it working so this is the next best thing.
  • Updated the folded and rolled towels to include all functionality. I decided to choose usability over realism.
  • Speaking of realism: I've added a new addon to added integration with SimRealist's HLC. The HLC Towel Functionality addon will make stacked and rolled towels behave like a combination of my towels and HLC's as long as you have HLC installed. Just make sure it's in the same folder as the main Functional Bath Towels mod so it can override properly.
  • Huge thank you to PukingKing for even more testing!
  • Fixed a bug where kids could change into towels but not out of them.
  • Added a buff from Werewolves to the ones checked for in the Dry Off interaction and removed when drying off or changing into a towel.
  • Fixed a bug where the English object names were showing up in Chinese. I’m guessing a lot of people didn’t even notice because the objects were already placed in their houses, but now it’s fixed.
  • If you play in a language other than English you can skip this update because you won’t see those strings anyway.
  • Added the missing “Dry Off” interaction to the stacked and rolled towels.
  • I realized that having Separate, Merged, and Merged by pack was probably confusing so I’ll be slowly updating all my mods to use a new structure.
  • Starting with v1.1.2 the Separate download has been discontinued.
  • Renamed the files to better reflect the mod name
  • Now there are two downloads: Merged and ByPack.
    • Merged contains all objects in one file.
    • ByPack contains a TUNING file and one file per pack. You can pick and choose the packs you have/want
    • Each download also contains a file explaining this.
  • Please delete your existing files and redownload one of the new zips because the renamed files won’t overwrite the old ones.
  • Added French translation from Vanessa Sims
  • Added the missing hidden tags for Chinese Simplified.
  • Brand new search functionality! I’m slowly adding hidden tags to my objects so you can find them by searching for “Ilex” (that’s an uppercase i at the beginning if you can’t tell).
  • Added Russian translation from SER_KISYAN
