Howto change shower/bathe time?

No one knows everything this mod can do. Did you know you can tune the size of your sims nostrils with this mod? I'm kidding.

Howto change shower/bathe time?

Post by Pentasis » July 20th, 2019, 8:51 am

I got as far as XML > Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.Plumbing but there I am unable to figure out how to change the time it takes to shower or bathe. I would like showering to take no more than 15 minutes (game time) and a bath 45. Is this possible by tuning, if so what setting is it? Thnx.

Since showers (and I guess baths) last as long as it takes for the hygiene motive to replenish itself, wouldn't it suffice to change the Motive Delta setting for Hygiene in Relativity to a factor greater than 1 (such as 1.5 or 2)?

(Edited, my mistake I should have said greater than 1, not less than 1)

There is maximum time limit for a sim too take a shower or a bath neither is there a way to make them shower or bathe faster unless you give them the Eco-Friendly trait.
Shower and bath times as based on how low a sims Hygiene is and on how fast their Hygiene need fills back up.
You would need to find a way to make their Hygiene need fill up faster and I don't know where to look for that off hand or if it's possible without the Eco-Friendly trait.

There is a mod for this, so it is possible. Looking at the tuning in this mod I haven't been able to figure out how exactly this is tuned, and I doubt it is something that can be reached with retuner. But maybe this mod does exactly what you want and you don't need to tune the settings yourself?

That mod is long outdated and not supported by the creator.

At 0.1 and with TFM's Slow Motive Decay mod and Dirt Defiant LTR it could take up to 3 days before a sim needs to bathe or shower if I remember correctly from when I tested it.

I wasn't referring to Motive Decay/that which makes sims get dirty. I was referring to Motive Delta/that which makes sims get clean. In other words, their time spent bathing, not their time spent not bathing, or playing in the dirt (or whatever they do...). :)

Thanks for the input guys. I'll play around with the Motive Deltas to see what happens.

Yes, setting the delta factors works perfectly, they do need to be set higher than 1 though, not less.
