Chamber Pot and Bowl Sink

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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


A set of functional items to be used as an alternative to modern plumbing in themed hoods.

Chamber Pot
The pot mesh was combined with the castaway toilet bush to provide a functional chamberpot that is more appropriate for historical hoods.
  • Sims will squat to use the pot.
  • No dirty state/no breakage
  • May be used diagonally
  • Make certain there is enough room for your Sim to walk around the pot to use it; do not place it directly against a wall
  • Men will not use this pot from a standing position; they will only use it when their bladder is about half full.
  • There are three pots, one is for a different age groups:
    1. Toddler
    2. Children
    3. Teen through Elder
    The reason that there is a different pot based on ages is because the animations were not aligned properly for children and adults. Therefore, only children can use the Chamber Pot for Children, while Teens through Elder can use the regular Chamber Pot. The toddler pot is based on the potty chair and retains its regular functions.
  • The Adult Chamber Pot is the master for all textures; You must have it in the game for the other pots to work.
  • Default color is white; there are 9 more recolors included.



Bowl Sink
The bowl sink has been extracted and altered from the modern sink in the Kitchens & Bath stuff pack. It was then cloned on the expensive pedestal sink.
  • The sink may be placed on any table or end table using cheats.
  • The bowl has all the functionality of a regular sink: hand wash, drink, bathe infant, wash dishes, sponge bath, plus the additional actions if a medicine cabinet is placed above it.
  • The default color is white: there are 9 more recolors included and they coordinate with the chamber pot.
  • Occassionally water may appear outside the sink, such as during the sink filling up. The animations have not been altered from the original sink, so this is due to maxis/ea games error. [I checked and it does happen on the Kitchen & Bath Sink, but so infrequently that I find it a non-issue personally].



Notes:
-Just like regular toilets and sinks, these items are not placeable on shelves.
-You will need at least one expansion installed from Pets or later for the Chamberpot to work in your game (so that means you need only one of the following: Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Freetime, or Apartment Life).

Do you need freetime for this because it's crashing my game. I have all packs up to OFB. Otherwise, this is a pretty nifty creation.

pinkmonkey - You shouldn't need FT specifically to use either the chamberpot or sink. I've been working on the objects for weeks and have tested them in multiple game configurations with no issues. Once I read your post I tested them in a NL/OFB only game that I have been using and they both functioned perfectly. I've never experienced crashing while working on them. My only thought is that there is another custom object possibly interfering? Did you try putting these objects into a clean game with no other cc? This is the only way to be certain.

I just tried it with a clean game and it still crashes. Not sure what's going on.

Ok, which expansion packs do you have specifically? I will do another test game too. I'll even do it on another computer just to be sure.

Sorry for the trouble. I will be updating the info in my post to reflect this issue.

Gosh sunni, the textures on these are gorgeous! Which... is a strange thing to say about chamber pots. I did notice a little glitch though. When you place them with the default colour you can't use the design tool on them to change colours. A huge lunatic little birdie told me to check the MMAT to make sure the defaultMaterial is set to true.... which I have not done, but figured you might want to.

That Birdie is correct. Apparently the mmat was set to false and I didn't know it. Will reupload the updated version. Thanks for letting me know.

Thank you! I saw these but thought I couldn't use them because I don't have AL right now, but I'm happy to see that I was wrong. My villagers thank you for the new varieties of plumbing facilities
