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.
Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Plumbing
Toilet, Shower, and Bathtub

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".

Hot baths were very popular and most towns in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding had public bathhouses. The King’s subjects’ hygiene bars were as green as the lush grasses in the meadows. Those who were hydrophobic were considered to be unflirty slobs lacking in courtly manners. The royal castle featured special bathrooms with padded wooden tubs situated near the fires. Tubs were filled with water drawn from the well and heated on the fire. When King Crumplebottom traveled, a portable tub accompanied him, along with a bathman who prepared the baths.

Bathtub and shower made by Hekate999 for The Merrye Makers.

The Groom of the Stool
A modern kingdom, Simdom Pudding peasants had sturdy chamber pots or well appointed public latrines to fulfill their bladder needs. The castle had several latrines, or garderobes. Private chambers situated close to the bed chambers, they jutted out from the castle walls. Waste fell into or was dumped into the moat or cesspit. At night, castle residents had fine personal chamber pots within their rooms. The King, however, being King, had royal accommodations. Spencer Funke was King Crumplebottom’s "Groom of the Stool". The most intimate of the King’s courtiers, he was in charge of providing at all times proper facilities for the King’s natural bodily functions, and indeed assisted in the process and the King’s cleansing thereafter. Spencer was a neat and handy man in whom much confidence was placed by his royal master, and with whom many royal secrets were shared. In time, he also became the crown’s first gentleman of the bedchamber; waiting on the King when he ate in private, helping him to dress, guarding the bedchamber and closet, and providing companionship. Clearly King Crumplebottom choose the shy loner Spencer with great care, knowing that Spencer had no inclination to gossip and, while in his groom's company, the King could be perfectly at ease. As a keeper of many royal secrets, Spencer became feared, respected, and somewhat of a snob within the royal court.

Polygon Counts:
See table

Known Issues
When a cat interacts with the toilet then there is an animation mismatch - see the picture.
The bath has been tested and cats interact fine - in the "play in" interaction there is no whooshing off to corners of the map.
The animations for toilet flushing etc are as in the original toilet - so your sim WILL flush the toilet using a non-existent handle.
When using a no-mosaic mod you will see that, when the sim sits on the toilet, it hovers slightly above the chamber pot.

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'm not really interested in medieval objects per se, but the tub is perfect for use in a modern neighborhood as an outdoor pet washing tub, and was exactly what I'm looking for in that regard. Thank you so much!

Hi I recently installed the shower and had to remove it due to a weird distortion that it seemed to be causing in my pets. (My puppy was grossly deformed and my Horses manes and tails distorted wildly.) Which utterly blows cause this is PERFECT for my medieval cabin dwelling Sims Has anyone else had an issue here? I'm thinking it must be conflicting maybe with another mod or something?
