No Dishes in Bathroom Sinks

These are tuning overrides that remove the dishwashing interactions from eight different sinks (those that look like one would use them in a bathroom), to be able to better control where sims can and cannot wash their dishes.


2015-12-15: Updated for 1.13. This is not compatible with earlier game versions since object states (dirty etc) are defined differently as of 1.13.





In the zip are eight separate packages for all of the Base Game pedestal sinks and the “Ovum Bath Sink” (the one on the picture above) -- see the catalogue screenshots for which is which.



Note that the Bureau sink is using the generic sink tuning -- it is not in use for any other sinks in the base game, but EP/GP/etc users should doublecheck with/without that package in case sims seem to have issues using EP/GP sinks for doing dishes (they may or may not be using the same tuning). I only have the base game so I don’t know.

Aha! Thank you for this. It's always been a pet peeve of mine that the sims are washing their dishes in the bathroom when there's a perfectly good sink in the kitchen.

Thanks for this - it was especially annoying when sims were still doing this even after the introduction of the dish washer

Omg, this is wonderful. It's a thing that just annoys me, so badly, about the sims. 1) That they wash dishes in the loo. And 2) that they'll wash a dish in another sink instead of in the friggin kitchen. So, thank you. :)

Very necessary, surely no one can understand, why the sims are running up- or downstairs with the dirty dishes and the kitchen sink is free ...
