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.
Enjoy your daily bubble bath, have a duck time, form your body shape and decorate your bathroom in own style.
17 new objects (meshes) are included in this set and painting recolor in addition.

This set contains functional and decorative items. Several items you can place on a sink or on a bathtub. All objects in this set are recolorable except of painting. The painting is already a recolor of the game painting. You can recolor objects with Create-A-Style game tool.

- Place Shampoo or Lotion Pump on the bathtub that Sim can take a bubble bath!
- Soap is animated. Place Soap on the bathtub and after bathing a moodlet of your Sim will be increased on 15 points (works as Rubber Duck).
- Use Weight Scale to change a body shape of your Sim. It works like body sculptor.

Other objects have functionality of destiny objects or they are decorative.

All objects don't override base game objects. They are affordable in game Buy Mode catalog. All decorations including weight scale you can find in Decoratios - Misc. Wall cabinets you can find in surfaces - wall cabinets. Curtains are in decorations - curtains.

Important part:
* use “moveobjects on” cheat to place end table under sink. Nevertheless Sim is able to route to the sink without a failure.
* bathroom curtains could be placed at the bathtub without a cheat from any side of bathtub. Sim will be able to use bathtub anyway.
* you might need to use “moveobjects on” cheat to stack 2 wall cabinets together.
* you can put bathtub decoration under any bathtub without a cheat. Use "ALT" key to move it on the desirable position.

In this topic you will download mesh and a recolor on this picture. My custom pattern on the objects will be transferred with those recolors.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I adore your new decoration sets! I especially like the little bathroom decorations (like the soap and brush and other stuff you'd actually find in a bathroom) and the shower curtain!

This set looks gorgeous, but for some reason I can't install it using the launcher; I keep getting a message that my game files are not up to date, which is not true because I have the most recent patch etc, and everything else (even the Store files) works just fine. I tried running all the files of this set through the compressorizer, but they still won't install.

Is there some reason why you put them up as Sims3package files and not just plain package files? I don't like using the launcher to install files generally because I can't sort them, and these won't work in any case. In addition, the Installhelper won't do it. Could they be put up as simple package files? Alternatively, could someone tell me what I am doing wrong and how I can get these to install properly? (By the way your other files, like the dining room set, the radiator, and the vacuum cleaner all installed perfectly.)

ETA: Never mind! I'm an idiot -- I realized I was trying to install the recolour set without having first installed the meshes, and that is why I was having trouble. Anyway, thanks for this gorgeous and detailed set.

This is one of the most creative sets (free) I've seen in a while. I especially love that you can modify your sim's weight on the scale!! You are AWESOME. Ah, can you make a scale for me like that for real life??? LOL Thank you, Melissa for this fabulous upload with lots of new meshes.

I really love the idea of this set, but theres one problem, every time i try to download then install this stuff, the helper monkey says they are corrupt files. I would just like to know if they are still safe to install.
