Very nice! A little stack of books would go perfectly on the back of the toilets.....or if you're like me, a roll of toilet paper!

Thank you so much for this!

This was fun! Does anyone has a placeable toilet paper roll?

Great idea! May I ask where you found a tutorial on slots by Leesester?

The tutorial is Here. It's written for adding slots to things like end tables, and coffee tables and such. Not things like toilets. What I did was add my own container in the slot area and have another SimPE open off to the side with a cloned end table to compare and just copied the values from the end table to the toilet.

Edit: Oh and one thing she doesn't say, if you're using Milkshape the x,y,z values are different than those in simPE. x in milkshape = x in simPE, y in Milkshape = z in simPE, z in Milkshape = y in simPE.

I put the toilets in my game and I noticed that you can't select another color. It will always default back to the same color for each recolor.

Did that make sense? I tried selecting the expensive black toilet, but when I placed it, it was white. I tried selecting the blue recolor, and again....it placed as white.

Oh boy, I hope I'm not confusing you. Reading that I feel like I'm confusing myself! haha!

Thanks Sims99Fanatic. I use Milkshape, so I know about the x,y,z difference.

Oh that's odd. I did have some problems repository linking these toilets. I think I can fix it, but I would have to make them without repository linking them and just include recolors. I'm working on a large project right now, so I don't know when I can get back to you on that.

Eh, no rush. I mainly use the white toilet anyway.

Thanks again!

Just reporting that I had the same problem as neonhorn22 mentioned above with the maxis recolors defaulting back to original with your original files. I will test out the updated files later.

Btw, love that you added a slot to these toilets. I've always thought it was needed.

Update: The new files work just fine for me. I was able to choose all the recolors for each toilet. Also, did you intend to not include the plumbing recolors on the K&B Olde Tyme toilet? The piping beneath/behind and the flush handles come in four colors (silver, gold, copper and bronze) with the original package. Not a complaint, I'm just curious.

Oh it must've been something I overlooked. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll fix it in the next few days if I can.

Thanks for these slots on the toilet they are so needed, and double thanks for the toilet paper link (my Sims just Shitted -- doo doo -- poo pooed) and there's not any paper in the home...now I can restock with rolls and rolls of the good papery goodies).
