I noticed that the game included 2 doors that, for some reason, were not enabled in the build catalog. They are female and male only doors. Perfect for you Sims' bathrooms, or other gender specific rooms.

These do NOT overide the doors that came with the game. They are clones, edited to be available in build mode.

They are editable via CaST in-game. The only part you can't customize is the male/female signs.

I have tested these, and found no problems, but if you find something I didn't, please let me know.

Additional Credits:
Williham has made some similar doors, but they are adjustable in-game as to whom can use them. You can find his thread here.

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.

There is another reason for leaving stuff out. Makes it easier for them to include it in the next ep or whatever, thus making them more money. But then again I am just another pore lil broke user. LOL

Just to let you know that these are not needed if you have the World Adventures EP, as I came across a public restroom in France and it had these doors and I had no CC other than a couple of Store items. So apparently EA decided to utilize them almost six months later. Not sure if the latest patches for the base game included these or not.

Thank you! Haven't tried them yet, but, this is absolutely perfect for the daycare I'm running; once a girl goes into the bathroom, all boys won't, even if I have two different doors installed. It's frustrating, but this should fix it.
