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.
Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

A cheap environmentally friendly toilet for your Sims. Conserving water in your cities. It's also a cheap substitute for more expensive toilets.

Costs 50$. You'll find it among the other toilets in the directory.
This toilet have three recolorable channels. Why not some flowers?I have cloned it from a chep toilet and the flushing sound is still there. I havn't succed to removed it without borking it all.

Have fun and don't forget the thank button if you download.

Polygon Counts:

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 having trouble with this toilet. I have two installed in my lot, and one of them is working fine, but the other has a levitating toilet seat. It was fine when I first placed the toilet, but when I'm zoomed kind of far out(low-detail mode?), the toilet seat levitates very far above the actual toilet. When I zoom in very close, it goes back to its proper position. I first noticed this after the toilet clogged and my sim un-clogged it. I deleted the toilet and placed another one, and tried to upgrade it so that it wouldn't break anymore, and the floating seat returned.

My game is patched to the latest version, and I'm running with all expansions and stuff packs through FL. I don't use any mods that affect breaking toilets or handiness upgrades that I know of.

Hi, hmm ... it sounds like a serious problem. I have not heard of it before. I tested the toilets for a very long time on my sites without problems. Very strange that it only happens on one of your toilets. I also have lots with more than one such toilets without a problem. Do you have many downloads? It may be that something collide.
#28 Old 13th Oct 2010 at 11:36 PM
Not a terribly large amount of other downloads, no. I don't have any other custom toilets, and only a handful of mods(assorted twallan stuff and awesomemod...a few other ones as well, can't recall them off the top of my head). Then on top of that, I think I have a couple of outfits, one hair, and a handful of furniture/build sets. If you had a better idea(as a creator) of what sort of thing might conflict with your toilet, I can look for something specific, but nothing is immediately obvious as a source of the trouble.
