This is a new and improved version of my soap. It is now recolorable, and even cooler? is whatever color is displayed on the stand is the color you buy at the store. From there, that is the soap that is carried home. You can then recolor it if you wish.
***HOWEVER IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS***
However, in order to get it to work properly, some changes had to be made to the package. Also, the packages have mostly been renamed. So, if you have the original files installed PLEASE REMOVE THEM FIRST
They start with buyable soap. Also go in and delete the original stands, and delete caches. I had one person test, that did all this that had no issues. One who didn't who did have issues, but once she did all this it was fine, and it was a bit flaky for me once I made the original changes to the soap package. Once I got out and went back in, it was fine. The animation and behavior otherwise is the same, it is now just recolorable.
The changes are as follows. I made the soap recolorable, and put it in the fruit bowl package. It was cloned from the perfume bottle originally but that package acted odd, once it was pulled out of inventory recolored, but I knew the fruit bowl would work due to working on other stands at the same time. I also repositoried the stand to the soap, so while the stand itself is recolorable, the soap stand soap bars are repositoried to the actual soap. To have recolors there show up, you have to recolor the soap itself. I also made it where children could buy the soap, not because they can use it, but so they can buy it for other family members, and I made shopping for it autonomous in the hopes it would help increase sales in an owned business (as one of my friends complained about that).
As far as I can tell, it requires nightlife, OFB and pets. It is made for the Sims 2, and I made it with the Ultimate Collection.
The original price versions are still available as well, and the tuning info is still included and available.
Old info below
This has been a long time coming, and I am sorry about that! Thank you to all my testers that led to this moment, Lach, Jottiz, Alet, Karen_Lorraine, Twi, Gummilutt, and several others who helped me figure out parts of it, CMO, MSD, and Lee. The picture above shows the stand with it's one recolor I did for medieval hoods.
This is basically a version of my functional soap, with the soap standing upward instead of lying down, that is a clone of the Nightlife perfume stand, so yes, Nightlife is required so that it would be a sellable item in stores. I have made the use soap part be in English only as in other languages it said use cologne, which was a late find. I have worked with it to figure out the best settings for Open for Business, although the initial reason for choosing this was so that it could be sold in unowned businesses. I wanted it to be as useful for as many people as possible.
This, like the functional soap, also has a pie menu option, but says use soap from stand instead of use soap, in order to keep it separate from the functional one. The soap is both able to be purchased straight from the buy catalog under plumbing/miscellaneous for 2, 10, or 25 simoleans, depending on which package you download, and the stand is available in community lots under shopping, misc. for 150 and in the catalog on residential lots under misc/misc for 150, so that it is available for home businesses. I have included tuning instructions in notepad and a tuning jpg picture and one stand recolor in each folder/zip file as well as the 4 packages necessary for this to work.
If you put the soap in the person's inventory, that is when the pie menu option pops up. The animation is the same as the functional soap, and again only applies to teens, young adults, adults, and elders. They do a custom spongebathing animation that raises hygiene. You can either purchase the soap from the stand, or you can purchase it from the buy catalog. Same price either way. You can click on the bar, or you can put in inventory and click on the sim.
If you mainly just want it available for your poor sims, and don't intend to use it in stores that are owned really, I would suggest the 2 simolean package. (the buyablesoap2deflangsrplusrecolor.zip one)
The 10 simolean and the 25 simolean ones work about as well in an owned business. They all work, but the higher priced ones sell better in owned businesses.
The 10 simolean zip is called buyablesoaprepriced10deflangsrplusrecolor and the 25 is buyablesoaprepriced25deflangsrplusrecolor. These ALL share the same guids so you can only have ONE in your downloads folder!
The tuning information is in case you want to change the prices of the soap to a custom price that isn't available for download.
I hope I didn't leave anything out
A big THANK YOU to Fansee for making me a GIF of the animation used in both the buyable soap and the functional soap.
