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.
Low poly, only 1218 Fits nicely into 1 grid unit.

Please post any problems you have, thanks.

BTW, its only for looks. Grandpa broke it back in the drought of '52

*Update* Thanks to Numenor for all his help EP'ing and crash fixing. Also he has made a recolor.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Looks great as usual fleabay! I was wondering, what modelling program do you use? I've made some stuff in Wings and AC3D. They look great in the program, but as soon as I convert to .obj and import to the game, there's missing faces and some other funky stuff. Just curious.

I know right where I'll put it to good use.

Wonder how hard it would be to add water and use the pedestal sink base like the Sims1 water pumps? Probably pretty hard at this point... but something to keep in mind when more advanced tools come out huh?

Good work!

This is cool. I wonder if you could make it act like a sink and have them get a drink from it and wash their hands. I guess the animations wouldn't look right, but that would be neat to see.

It crashed my game, too...

FLEABAY: I hope you don't mind, but I felt free to correct something in your package. The crash (only on some computers) was probably due to the particular Shape of the Venus statue: it has a shape for the "main" level of detail and an additional Shape for a lower LOD (used in neighborhood view and on low-level PC).
I deleted the references to the missing Shape, also in the GMND.

I've also enabled colour options for the pump, and converted the package in the new "EP2" format, more stable and more compliant to Maxis directions.

And there's a recolour, too...

Good work, anyway! The pump is wonderful and I've already put it in three of my lots!

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

Thanks Numenor,

I like modeling but the process of getting the item in the game is getting harder for me for some reason.

Anyway, I am putting your fix and recolor in the first post. Thanks again.

Looks amazing, i was just thinking though that if later you can get it as working model you could have the pumping motion work on your body skill lol
