These are texture overrides for the Maxis “John”, “Raw”, and “Old Time” toilets that greatly reduce the inexplicable high-gloss (how much time do sims spend each day polishing their toilets? ) and change most of the colour options for John and Oldtime into something more .. useful.

The Raw toilet (above) is unchanged except for the specular. See the screenshots for which colour options replace which in the other two; I didn’t move the toilets when taking the pics, only enabled/removed the mods that change them.

The zip contains separate packages, one for each toilet.

Type: Other

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

Really necessary, thank you so much !!! And yes, Maxi should learn from you, but please don't go away from us ;-)

Sooooo much better. I don't know what maxis is thinking most of the time when they design this stuff because real houses don't look like this.

100% love this. So much more versatile and non-weird. Can't wait to team this up with the shower-tub curtain overrides! ^_^

Does anyone know if this one is still functional? A lot of pbox's mods are broken.
