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.
Updated 08/14/07: I reduced the face count from 9308 to 6492. I added the option to bathe babies, this didn't work properly in my first version. I'd tried to eliminate it before, I've change my mind and prefer to have this a working option. I fixed a problem with the walls as reported by Wren. I repositioned the water pump for better animations. I also fixed it so that you can place it anywhere on your lot without having to use the moveobjects on cheat.

Base game the option to bathe infants may generate an error with this option only all the other options work fine in Life Stories which is the only way I can test for base game. All options, get a drink, wash hands, sponge bath and bathe infant work fine in Pet Stories and Sims 2 with all EP's installed.




Polygon Counts:
Faces 9308

Additional Credits:
Thanks to all that help make this possible.

Neat! It looks like sims can get a glass of water from it. My farm sims could use this, and my early industrial age sims. Thanks for sharing.

QUESTION: Does it do anything else? Can sims try to wash their hands, dishes, or babies in it? (I wouldn't want to if that would show the basin filling animation, would look wrong with a pump.)

If I remember correctly I took out the basin of water. They can wash their hands and get a drink. They can't bath a baby. I will double check my setting on this as it was about a month ago I created it. YOu have brought up some very good points...thanks for asking.

Do you think you can make a version where they can't use it during winter?

I will look into this for you. I still have a lot to learn about codes and am unfamiliar with what would keep them from using in the winter. I can't think of an item that does this to look at how it was coded. Do you know of any or anyone else?

I would check the modding forums and maybe ask in the object creation workshop if you get stuck. They helped me when I couldn't figure something out.

This looks great in my campground! It works great, my sims even washed dishes with it.

This is a lovely object and it’s perfect for my farm themed lots. There is a small glitch though, that happens in my game when I try to use the swatch thingy to recolour the pump. When I try, a white tile appears below and behind the object and once it’s there, the only way to get rid of it is to delete the object. It’s not a big deal, because you only have to choose the correct colour you want when you place the object, and everything works fine when it’s in use. It only goes wonky when you try to recolour. I thought you might like to know.
I’ve downloaded a bunch of your things; you do wonderful work and it’s much appreciated. Thank you!

It sound's like the wall masks for a regular sink are pulling in. I haven't had this happen to me but I'll check it to see if there is a way to fix it for you.

Can you make a red recolor of this? If you could that would be great. I would do it myself but I know nothing of recoloring or meshing. By the way I love your work.
