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.

Use any wall or floor covering, choose your showerhead, even pick your drain!

9 showerheads, 5 showers with doors, 5 panels, pole caddy, decorative wall shelf, wall soap dish, and drain.

  • All showers but one have the same specs as the Crystal Box Shower. The exception is the Delight Shower, it affected the door animation when I tried to change the tuning. I kept the prices the same so they'll group with the originals in the catalog.
  • The Post Modern Shower with Door, RAW Shower with Door, and Under the Sea Showers require MOO to place. Not sure why, but the game says the meshes intersect with the floor even though they don't.
  • The Pole Caddy requires MOO to place in a corner.
  • The accessories and the panels have decal footprints, that means that sims can walk through them. I had to do this so that they could be placed next to the showers.
  • Find all objects easily by searching for "build"


BuildaShowerKit: seperate packages

BuildaShowerKit_Merged: all files merged into one package

Use, share, recolor, whatever with link and credit please. Also, a pm would be nice but it's not neccessary.

I haven't seen any other posts about this, but I'm having an issue with the shower+door option. There is no radial menu option to clean it. The glass door and towel just look permanently dirty and the only "fix" I was able to do was to sell the old and buy a new.

Otherwise this set is fantastic, brings so much more to the aesthetics of the game!

I downloaded the mod (It actually didn't download as a ziped file for me) and put it where it was supposed to go and I can't find the shower even searching for "Build" it just comes up with build a rocket. Is it also supposed to be in a zipped file? Or maybe should I not have used both the kit and the kit _merged?
Edit: I even tried putting them both in a zip file and unzipping that, keeping both, no luck. They never even show up in the list of mods.
Edit: I didn't know how to unzip rar files and was very confused. I now know what your instructions meant. It looked like a package file so it confused me.
