Bathe Animals Correctly (1.67)

Game Mods Overrides Tuning Mods

If you’re like me, you like having pets in your game. If you’re like me, you also hated the fact that Sims are utterly clueless about how to correctly bathe their furry friends, frequently resulting in relationship drops and negative moodlets! I got tired of this nonsense, so I came up with this simple little tuning mod to fix all of that.

Originally, you were always extremely likely to fail to bathe a cat (unless it had fleas, but even then there was still a chance to fail), and could also experience a “bad bath” situation for a dog with certain traits. This mod sets the chances of either of these things occurring to zero, making it so bathtime is now oh so much fun for everyone, and your Sims will always be able to give both cats and dogs a bath without any problems.

I’ve also made an alternative version that, in addition to the above changes, also makes it so dogs no longer have the “soaked” buff for 15 minutes after being bathed. Sims always blow dry them when they’re all done, so I’m not sure why they’d still be all wet! The buff will still appear, but then disappear almost immediately, without leaving any puddles. Do not install both files at once… ONLY PICK ONE!!

To install, simply drop the file into your Mods/Packages folder, and simply delete the file if you wish to uninstall. After installing or uninstalling, be sure to delete your scriptCache file, located in the DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3 folder.

There should be no conflicts with any other mods. This is only a simple tuning tweak, NOT a core mod of any kind! This mod only makes edits to one file, Bathtub+BathePet_0x05e3635fa99c3d38.xml; I have never heard of or come across any other mods that make changes to this file. If ever in doubt, check things over with Delphy’s wonderful Sims 3 Dashboard tool.

Obviously, Pets is required to use this, and if you don’t have Pets, then you have no use for this mod. Built with game version 1.67, but should be compatible with earlier patches released after Pets.
