This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
The Manor House Washroom has gone from pristine to broken down, with fine spiderwebs of cracks covering the porcelain, patinaed metal fixtures and peeling paint.



This recolor is a huge departure from what I normally do, but I was inspired to do it while visiting one of my favorite sites, It's a website run by a guy who takes pictures of "urban ruins"--old homes, hospitals (the creepiest ones!), churches, etc.

I have always had a love for things that have had their beauty eaten away by time and/or neglect. I've even got a massive folder on my hard drive (called 'Dirty Pretty Things') filled with nothing but pictures of lovely dilapidated mansions and moldy, forgotten pieces of fine furniture. It's kind of a wonder I've never done anything like this before.

It was really fun to work with all the different textures and such to create this recolor so I hope everyone enjoys it

Please Note: The attached .zip file contains the recolors for both parts (I and II) of the MH Washroom.

Yes and no. It works, but only as a toilet. It does not function like a bidet.

The details are beautiful!
I am seriouslly considering taking back my plead of not downloading furniture.

Very nice. Doesn't look filthy or unusable, just old and natural. In certain communities the water supply will make even very new fixtures look rusty and aged like that very fast. Thank you very much for this well thought out addition to your wonderful MH theme.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.

I have to tell you that I am actually super in love with the wall coverings you did for this set. I didnt even realize it was yours until I went off searching for more pieces!

Ah, glad to see I'm not the only one with an odd fascination with run-down things.
Great job on these, you should consider creating more.

I can't bring myself to play TS3 anymore because I miss all the beautiful buy and build content too much. The Manor House is one my favorite. So I got back to playing TS2. Thank you for your effort and sharing your wonderful creations with us. And good luck with your final exam!

I love it, it's perfect for a haunted house, but, just one question about one of preview images, where did you get that ornate archway?

I'd like to know too where to get that archway and I am apparently not the only one who would like to know about it, so it would be nice if you told us. Because it, doesn't seem very polite not to answer, especially when it has been asked so many people, and not just on this site.
