This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
***This hamper requires Laundry Day Stuff to work in your game!!!***

***STANDALONE works with latest update***

***DEFAULT OVERRIDE FIXED for latest update***

Made with game version

Update - 27 Aug 2021

The default override version may not work with all saves.

I was disappointed when SimGuruGraham announced that EA would not make any of the deco laundry bins from previous packs backwards compatible with the new laundry system in the Laundry Day Stuff Pack. I really like the canvas hamper from Parenthood and I looked around the Internet but could not find any modded versions. So here I present to the Simmer community, the Functional Parenthood Laundry Basket. Enjoy!

P.S. It looks like EA fixed the initial placement issues with patch 1.41. You can now safely place the hamper against the wall and/or underneath shelves.

2 Flavors
DO = Default Override - FIXED as of patch
SA = Standalone

  • Works best if Sim has a clear path to both hamper and laundry machines
  • This hamper was made on a Mac. If you have a PC, please delete the file named MACOSX - otherwise your game will not start. Thanks to ksstrek, jamee, SymJimm, and Cidsan for pointing out the error and the solution.
  • Default Override version may not function in all saves. I haven't pinpointed exactly why this happens. I tested this mod in my "MC-vanilla" testing save with only it and MCCC, and the mod worked as advertised. When I tried it in my current save with just MCCC, the mod did not work.

This is a multi-part download:

Please download one or the other; however, downloading both won�t hurt anything. You�ll just have duplicates of the same laundry basket. This hamper was made on a Mac. If you have a PC, please delete the file named MACOSX, otherwise your game will not start.
