Default What coulnts as a "bathroom fixture"?
I'm trying to make a gym but in order to be upgraded it says I need two more bathroom fixtures. I've tried toilets, I've tried showers, I've tried wall stuff like toilet paper and shelves. I've tried those all-in-one shower/toilet things, I've tried bathroom stalls, and nothing works. I've even tried stuff like lights that are found in the bathroom tab. But still it remains! What does it want?

You've listed everything but sinks. Did you try sinks?
It's a shame that they're so vague when it comes to upgrades. Hey EA, we want to play the game, not jump through hoops.

In the game of life, I play with Free Will set to High.

If it's not sinks, I would probably try copying the lot down to the bin, bulldozing the original, and replacing it with a copy over in a test run of the game to see if that makes any difference. Maybe the counter (the thing that counts plumbing fixtures I mean, not a counter surface) is stuck.

Nothing is working. I even bought a preexisting gym and it still demands "bathroom fixtures" before I can upgrade it.

Someone here has to have successfully built a three-star gym, right?

What is upgrading a gym? What is three stars? I don't ever remember seeing any such thing.

When your sims purchase real estate/business investments by phone or computer, the properties are rated from zero (or maybe it's one) to three stars depending on how "nice" they are. Improving the properties by adding more amenities increases the star rating and subsequently the amount collected on those investments weekly, often subject to some annoying depreciation along the way. Sims also draw wishes to improve their less than three star properties from time to time. Obviously this one is just not working right.

Thanks, now I understand. I also understand why I had no idea about it.
