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.
Now updated for Pets and patch

A simpler, more convenient alternative to any luxury bathroom.

Costs:
Toilet: 150$
Shower: 50$
Bathtub: 100$
Sink: 50$
Floor Drain: 25$

You find the bathtub and shower in the bathub/shower area in the directory, the toilet among the toilets and the sink among the sinks.
The floor drain is a cloned rug so you will find it in the rug area.

The sink, bathtub and toilet have all three color channels, the shower two and the floor drain just one.

Polygon Counts:
Toilet: 1062 verices and 1008 faces
Shower: 1105 vertices and 1256 faces
Bathtub: 1494 vertices and 1443 faces
Sink: 1229 vertices and 1294 faces
Floor Drain: 25 vertices and 24 faces.

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.

Does the tub have pet interactions? It'd be perfect for the Loules' outdoor dog pen.

Oh, durrr... I should have double-checked the "needed to download" section... well, anyoneone up for converting it? :P

might be a stupid question since I'm downloading it anyway, but does the shower have any invisible doors on it? like some of the other showers like this that require you to position them a certain way so the sim can enter it.

Yes, it have, when it is cloned from a EA shower. The sims step in from side but it still looks natural.
