Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I decided to make this small hack a few days ago when I was playing and suddenly felt the urge to have my sims sunbathe in their backyard. It will enable the option to sunbathe in regular lots in addition to beach lots.

As you can see in the screenshot attached, Malcolm Landgraab wasn't too pleased to get a sunburn .

UPDATE 08/23/2008 :
As requested, now the option won't appear indoor, and yes your sim will still be able to sunbathe on the rooftop.

VERY Cool! I always wondered why this wasnt available on home lots, or communities with pools - Thanks for 'fixing' this!

Perfect! I had a hacked beach towl before to allow this but I much prefer the option being clickable on the floor and available everywhere. :D

Wow very nice, thanks! Does this work on any floor, or exposed ground only? Guess I'll have to install and find out

Great idea, thanks! Do sims sunbathe autonomously like they do it on the beach?

Thanks I will try this out. I too had been using Inge's sunbathe anywhere towel, but had to buy the towel to actually do it. I think this is way cool. Thanks for sharing!

Was waiting for somebody to make something like this. Is it possible to sunbathe on a rooftop, or does it have to be terrain?

Excellent job either way!

This is brilliant, I've always wanted my Sims to be able to sunbathe wherever - just like in real life!

Thanks for this, it's great!

Hmm, this is a great mod, but I don't really like that fact that the sims can also choose to sunbathe indoors. lol

If it's at all possible, I'd love to see this adjusted so the sunbathe option only appears when the sim is outdoors.

Other than that... terrific work!
