I guess dressing towel after the shower/bath is more real - like in real life!
The towel is working for men and women (adult/teen/elder)
You can change your clean and wet sim into anything suitable.
For some reason children change into the underwear for this case. I think it is not so bad too.


01.03.2009 AL both sexes version added. There are two checks - if the lot is residential and is it an appartment.

thank you!
P. S. If you have CBOY_nudist mod you should put this mod into the folder
\Sims\FreeTime\TSData\Res\Overrides so the game will read both BHAVs without conflict.

Great job, it works wth ALL Eps & SPs installed.
On pregnant Sims they lost the tummy bulge, but kept the waddle! LOL

Thanks bunches

Great idea! I love this one. So does it work for Teens as well?

Thank you, this is quite nearly perfect! The only slight annoyance is that when playing a campus the damn NPC students won't ever dress in Everyday after taking a shower for the first time...

This world is no fun.
#30 Old 28th Jan 2008 at 2:17 PM
No bugs to report... except one: I still tent to forget that I have to send my Simmies to the warderobe to get dressed afterwards... How can you fix a bugged player???
A really great mod, Ailias! Thanks for sharing!

Yes, I am serious though I'm not serious at all. I'm serious about this!

...and if sims have a car, they go to COMMUNITY LOT in the TOWEL! hahhaaaa COOL!!! or otherwhise, if they shower in community lot, get towel, and bring home nice ...
But there's a not so good thing: if you do showers in community lot - you see almost all NPCs in towels after a while... i think it would be good to make an action to NPC to change in nearest dresser on will. By the way, where Maxis store free-will actions?

NOT TESTED SUGGESTION is to build a mini clothes shop in every such commlot, then they will go to try on and maybe will change...

GREAT IDEA: Beach of drunks - possible to realize with this mod - put shower in the beach and wait....

Khaibit: ohh yess, your bug can be fixed by adding a free-will action, "if in towel, change to normal, and if energy below 50 - change to PJs".. hah, great idea... searching in SimPE all \RES\'ssss

Khar Muur: they change when they go to class, but they don't if they go to rest to their room (of course, they only stand in towel all night there, rest in a horse style!!!)

Keep the Best, kick the Rest!

Kidding? You mean MsCrummpleBottom? I got rid of her. what other NPC take shower on comm lots? I cannot get it.

...and if sims have a car, they go to COMMUNITY LOT in the TOWEL! hahhaaaa COOL!!! or otherwhise, if they shower in community lot, get towel, and bring home
not true
sims always change to casual before getting in the car or taxi.

I think this is one of THE smartest mods to date. Adds such a nice touch to our games.

If the sim who wear towel pass the hotel door on vacation, he/she will be instantly naked. Can you fix that? Or can you make it also that any non-playable character doesn't wear towel after shower?

I took a townie on vacation with me with this hack installed, and when the townie never tried to change into normal clothes after her shower. (Didn't expect her to) When she went through the hotel room door she either became naked or changed into her real underwear! Do you think you could add in a little autonomous push to change clothes after a shower? The thing that bugged me more about this was that I always had to remember to direct my sims to change their clothes after a shower. I ended up removing it from my downloads.

Is this compatible with FreeTime? I get an error when I mouse over a bathtub or shower, but I'm not sure if this is because of your hack... anyways, great work! Really realisctic and well-needed!

it worked fine for me,though i had some other error but i think its not because of this hack,my sims cant read books or news,when they try to -half way while they are trying to sit they are back standing,and book or newspaper is gone.but am sure its not cos of this hack,it worked fine

I really like this and already feel that I can't play without it... Although I sometimes take it out when my sims are at Uni - towel-clad dormies all over the place. (it goes straight back in when they graduate, though)

...But it doesn't seem to be compatible with FT - jump bug when bathing/showering/using the toilet.

Any chance of an EP7/FT update? Pretty please?

I love this mod so much!! It should be noted though that it causes -major- errors with the new EP that actually caused me to accidentally delete one of my sims!! Good thing I had saved just before x.x

Be aware! This -does not work- with FreeTime at the moment!!

I believe it is because of it That's the same issue I get.

Edit: I found tha name of the file! I was looking in the wrong folder. It's ailias_dresstowel_aftershower.package if any of you need to remove it!

Edit Again: I removed the file, but they still seem to change.. it's very odd. At least now I am not getting the bugs. Was there originally another file that went along with this mod that I need to remove that I was not able to locate?

This is a really cool mod but sadly I have Freetime. Any plans for updating it in the future?

I have just tested FT version - it works now fine. I just changed the number of "Spin into Towel" instance to next default available so it does not conflict with #2086 "Tinker - Test" interaction anymore.
I'm planning to update with two alternate versions - Both sexes/no child, and Female only/no child.

I love this mod, but the one thing I can think would make it better is... if they changed into bathrobes instead. The new bathrobes in Kitchen and Bath Stuff made me think of this. Any chance of looking into doing this?

Well, my problem is the dormies never change their clothes.

Can you do a version which affect only the controlled sims, please ?

#50 Old 17th May 2008 at 11:36 PM
I'm guessing I don't have the pack from which the towel comes, because my Sims are getting out of the shower wearing undies instead. Still I prefer that to Sims getting dressed right after the shower, since my Sims (just like me) prefer to shower before getting to bed (instead of in the morning). It always bugged me to see them dress up than undress again once in the bedroom, just a minute later.

Fun think is now my Sims spend their week-ends in underwear rather than in pyj :p
