[Edit: Tested and code checked for Uni and Nightlife compatabilty - Passed!]

Another global mod. This one removes the shooing and door locking of the bathroom. So for those of you that don't mind Sims barging in on each other while on the toliet or taking a shower, here is the hack for you.

I wrote this because I was tired of having to have 3 or 4 bathrooms in my houses just so Sims would not pee on the floor. One sim would take a nice long bubble bath, lock the door, and all the other sims would have to find another bathroom or pee themselves. The only sims that would share a bathroom were sims that are in love. So I fixed that.

There have been a few other No Privacy mods but they only partially worked. I dug until I found the reason. When a sim uses the bathroom to shower, bath, or use the toliet they LOCK the door! The other privacy mods would work fine if the sims where all ready in the room, or the bathroom used an arch or otherwise had no door, but they could not enter the room until the other sim was done, or they were mutually in love.

So I fixed the normal "Shoo because I want to take a bath or pee" stuff, and I made it so the door would not lock other sims out. I have tested this quite a bit and found no problems, but... I need others to test it too, expecially those with University (I really do have to get Uni I guess).

If you have any of the other no privacy mods there may be conflicts, otherwise this "should" not cause any conflicts. But there are SO many mods out there I cannot be sure.

Have fun,

Lizz Love

It works!! And I am so glad it does... ...and thank you again... ..And yeah, I knew downloading global mods have a serious risk of messing up Maxis' games but your mod is great and it didn't cause noticeable glitches or irregularities with my sims or game play that I know of.

So keep those hacks coming.

I am using this mod, and enjoy it tramendously. Visitors beware, I will join you in the bathroom if I have to use it too. mwahahahaha

Let the light shine through.

Cool... They got the pets added...
Now all they have to do is add the Farms in Sims 2.

Does anyone know if this will conflict with Simlogical's Bathroom door, which is designed to automatically lock?

Hi Lizzlove, hi all,

this hack works fine with OFB, but it's not working with Pets.

Do we have any chance to get an updated version of this badly needed hack? I hate this privacy in my Sim families .

Or does anybody know which other hack has the same effekt and works with Pets?

Thanks and regards

I love this hack. It is on my "absolutely must have" list. In my game it worked fine with Pets, until I downloaded the Pets version of Inteen. Then *boom* all the shooing and locked doors showed up again and all my double-toilet bathrooms are useless. *sob* But I don't want to get rid of Inteen either. I've never had conficts with previous versions of Inteen. Is there any hope of making them compatible for Pets?

Thanks a bunch!

Another update--I have Seasons and the Seasons Inteen, and again this mod is rendered useless by Inteen. However, there is a work-around. If you arrange your Downloads so that this file loads after Inteen, it seems to work fine. This can be accomplished simply by putting this package in a folder with a name beginning with 'z'; for example, I keep mine in a folder called 'zz lizzlove privacy mod'. After doing this, Inteen appears to work fine, and my sims have real communal bathrooms again.

Anyone experiencing a conflict with FreeTime? having bathroom related errors and skips, seems to be related to this one...

Christianlov made a no privacy hack that is compatible with Seasons. I'm going to check tonight if it is compatible with Apartment as well and will reply :]

It works like a charm with Apartment!
