This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Now updated for Pets and patch

A simpler, more convenient alternative to any luxury bathroom.

Toilet: 150$
Shower: 50$
Bathtub: 100$
Sink: 50$
Floor Drain: 25$

You find the bathtub and shower in the bathub/shower area in the directory, the toilet among the toilets and the sink among the sinks.
The floor drain is a cloned rug so you will find it in the rug area.

The sink, bathtub and toilet have all three color channels, the shower two and the floor drain just one.

Toilet: 1062 verices and 1008 faces

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The shower kinda reminds me of the public shower from TS2. Can the one here be used like a public shower- as in having mulitple showers in the same room and be used by mulitple sims that are not in love?

This great download doesn't work with Sims Pets

- 1: my Sim 'jumps' out when leaning back when taking a bath. The Sim can take the bath and gets clean, but it very annoying
- 2: When my pets (a cat) wants to play in the tub, it jumps very far away out of the world and under the ground. I then will have to use ResetSim [name] to get it back home to safety.

I have a problem with the cheap shower too by the way. When my sim takes a shower, it kinda jumps in the shower, and do the same getting out again.

Is there any way, that this nice download can be updated in any way?? It's such a good idea, and it would be a shame if it gets lost just because it doesn't work with Pets ^^

Thank you ^^.

This does not work with pets indeed. The animation get cranky and you can't have pet interactions with it. Quite a shame, because it looks great...

The bathtub, probably the most complicated one, cannot be fixed by both GrantHess or TSR rig fix tool. I really like the tub and my sim can bathe in it, but everytime my kitten play in the tub, it's teleported away.
Everything else seems to be fine after rig-fixing, my kitten is able to drink and play with the toilet bowl.

I think the new files will overwrite the old ones but check if it not the case and let me know so I can instruct other players.

Can I ask HOW you made these?? Really want to make some furniture for myself!
I am desperate for these kinda stuff!! I seriously have to tell both of my cousins about this since we all love to make homeless sims then transfer them to rich snobs But we have been seriously upset since our laptops are crashing and wont work unless we have only one ep So, ModTheSims has rescued me and I will definitely tell them about this soon So, Back to the point how do I "create" furniture or stuff for the sims? I'll wait

This will look great in those homeless/runaway teen challenges. I'm going to make a video of the teen runaway challenge, will feature your stuff and give credit where credit is due. Thanks for a job well done. Question, you know how there are hot tubs... I wonder if you could make a poor-man's hot tub. (If you've seen Familiar of Zero anime, where Saito makes a japanese hot spring out of an old metal tub, that is the inspiration for this idea >.<!) And coals underneath... dang, I need to learn how to make things. Will look into myself then. ;)

I hope you still read the comments Lisen. I use the bath and the sink all the time when making farms or old houses.
