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.
After much cursing and delaying: the GlassWood Bathroom Deco set. I'll be honest, I almost scrapped this set a million times. One thing I learned? I much prefer making furniture and bigger objects. From now on, I'll leave all the pretty little deco stuffs to those who do it so well. Even though I'm calling this done, I'm not completely happy with it. Still..all that said-

In this set:
8 towels- 4 hanging towels and 4 towel stacks.
2 lotion/soap bottles and a toothbrush cup with accompanying toothbrushes.
4 wicker baskets.
3 bottles of cologne.
A leaning towel rack.
Kleenex!



NOTES:
*The towels are slaved to the master towel from the first set. IF you already have the hanging towel from that set, let the MASTER towel and recolors from this set replace the originals. I changed the towel a bit and they both have the same GUID.
The different towels- Hanging Towels 1 is the master and has 2 towels and a hand towel. Hanging Towels 2 is 2 single towels, no handtowel. Upper towels are for the leaning towels rack and are the same as Hanging towels 1. Lower towels are for the leaning towel rack and are the same as Hanging Towels 2. The 4 stacks are washcloths, hand towels, bath towels and a stack of all 3 together.
*The 2 lotion/soap bottles are slaved to the toothbrush cup. You need that for the bottles to work in game.
*The XLg, Med and Sm wicker baskets are slaved to the Lg basket. You need that for the other 3 sizes to work in game.
*The small squarish cologne bottle is the master for the other 2 bottles. You need that for the other 2 bottles to work in game.
*The leaning towel rack is slaved to the Bathroom Shelf from the first set. If you don't have that shelf, it is included in this upload (as a separate download) for convenience. There are 3 slots on each shelf, use "M" to cycle through them in game.
*The Kleenex! aren't slaved to anything. They're their very own, stand alone object. And I really like these little boxes for some reason. I think it's the textures I gave them!
*You WILL need to use "moveobjects on" to place the second set of towels on the leaning towel rack.
*All meshes should be basegame compatible.


POSSIBLE ISSUES:
The lotion/soap bottles and toothbrush cup- if they can't be picked up, deleted with the hammer tool or recolored with the design tool after placing, please let me know. I fixed the bounding box so they should be alright now.

The hanging towels can be found in Deco>Wall Hangings; the Leaning Towel Rack (and the Bathroom Shelf if you download it now) can be found in Surfaces>Shelves. Everything else can be found in Deco>Sculptures. The towel rack is 200 Simoleons. All the rest of it is cheap- 30 Simoleons and under.

Residential Collection File included - note that the leaning towel rack is not in the collection. I will redo the first set's collection file to include it.

Feel free to recolor. Recolor Hanging Towel 1 to recolor the towels. The Short cologne to recolor the cologne bottles. The Lg Wicker basket to recolor the baskets. The toothbrush cup to recolor the lotion/soap bottles. (The cap texture is on the toothrush texture.) The kleenex, just recolor. Recolor the Bathroom Shelf to recolor the leaning towel rack. The meshes can be included with your recolors and/or uploaded with a lot. (Link and credit!) No paysites or the Exchange, please.

Firstly, YAAAAY!! I've been waiting for these to be approved ever since you said you'd uploaded them. Secondly, EXTRA YAAAAAY! They're as nice as I hoped they would be, maybe even nicer! :-) I especially like the tissue boxes - a house just isn't a real house without at least one box of tissues! :-D

These look really good MLC, I can't wait to see them in game! :-)

You're welcome and thanks for commenting/downloading.

I know what you mean about the kleenex- we've got boxes of them all over the place. Well, 4 out of 7 rooms!

I love this set and use it all the time in all my houses. In the picture of the bathroom set I noticed a toilet paper holder and another towel rack/cabinet hanging on the wall that are not included in the thread. Where can I get those?

For some reason I am unable to open the file that has the master mesh for the towels from the first set. I keep getting a message that says "not a valid win file". What's up with this? I know I am a few years too late but I see that everyone above me has been able to. I am reallly disappointed because I really wanted those towel stacks! I typically use X zip to open rar and zip files with no trouble.

Love this set, I use the various bits constantly in my lots.

I know it's been up for several years now, but the lotion/soap bottles and the toothbrushes are indeed not removable or recolorable once placed. I've been working around it since I love them so much and usually use them on OMSPs anyway, but I thought I'd check back on it today and see if there was a fix. If there ever is one, a devoted soap and toothbrush fan would be very happy!

@sashagillis - I'm not sure what's going wrong for you there. I just downloaded the sets from part 1 and opened them with no problems. Have you tried WinRAR or 7zip? I use both of those programs.

@AlphaCow - I DID fix those! Just didn't update here apparently. Someone somewhere sent me a message about them... gah! If only I could remember where and where I uploaded them, lol. Maybe sleeping on it will help.
