Decor with a Purpose Patch Notes

Patch Notes: Useful Hand Soap

v1.1 – 7/24/22

  • Edited the buff to use a better name rather than borrowing from EA’s upgrade one. I did forget to update that screenshot, but I’ll get to it eventually.
  • Added a new version for compatibility with Bienchen’s Pimples Mod. For best results place this version in the same folder as Bienchen’s mod and do not rename either file. Please read the Compatibility and Downloads details to make sure you use the version you want and install it correctly.
  • Added an interactive option by request. If you didn’t like the passive nature of this mod you can now click to get soap before washing your hands instead of using it passively. Sims will not do this when they wash their hands autonomously, but you can make them do it when controlling them. Please read the Downloads details to make sure you use the version you want.

v1.0.2 – 5/2/22

  • Added French translation from Vanessa Sims

v1.0.1 – 4/8/22

  • Fixed a bug where sims could get both my buff and the upgrade buff. Now if the sink is upgraded they will no longer get a buff from the soap dispenser object.
  • 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 v1.0.1 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 (for this particular mod it’s functionally identical to Separate because there’s one object per pack, but I like consistency)
    • 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.

v1.0 – 2/13/22 – Initial Release

I finally figured out what I wanted to do for hand soap! It’s actually based on some existing functionality in the game: the soap dispenser upgrade that sinks can get.

The way these objects work is that you just place them near the sink and use the sink as normal. Sims will get a buff just like they do if the sink is upgraded with soap. There are no interactions on the objects themselves, so please don’t think they’re broken just because you can’t click on them.

These are overrides for EA items, giving them custom tuning. It also changes the sink_washHands and sink_washHands_OffTheGrid interactions so anything else that changes those or the objects themselves will conflict.

My Functional Shower Supplies mod has been updated to avoid a conflict so make sure you grab the NO version of the SE addon object if you’re using that mod and object.
