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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ah yes, I finally have fixed the problem that caused long saving loops in other people's games. The slatted door was the culprit. So sorry for the delay.

What are the Discretion Doors?
Good question, these doors can help change the look of any bathroom or changing room. All three styles are perfect for shower stalls at your Sims' local gym, especially using Cyberbob's public showers. The two solid styles are great for bathrooms or dressing rooms at any venue.

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.

Will these simply overwrite the other versions? I won't have to hunt down the old versions on lots and manually replace them will I?

The frosted/solid versions shouldn't need replacing, the slatted version, however will probably need to be (I started from scratch because this door had been the pronblem), although I did give the object the same file name from S3OC as the old version. That shouldn't change the instance hash, correct?

Thanks for creating and fixing these! I had the indefinite-save problem but didn't report it since I figured it was PEBKAC on my end. So happy to have these in my game!

I really love these. It is boring when you just use the Sim toilet box all the time and all the other doors don't fit IMAO.
