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.
These are the batheable fountains. They are autonomous, recolorable and animated.
They should be Base Game, but as I'm not sure if it will work for everybody, I established AL as requirement.
It is not addictive and kids and dogs must be really low in hygiene to use. It doesn't have yo-yo effect, they enter the fountain, bathe and exit when they are clean enough. You can also command them to bathe, but if you don't get any interaction, is because they are not dirty enough. You can also stop the interaction if you want to bathe them self.
The last fountain, based on the Euro Ornate, is an experiment. The animations are not perfect and the falling water looks much more to a transparent curtain, but don't ask about game effects.
1st, EA's effects are not seen from the neighbor (something that I Require) and 2nd, they need a container slot for FX and an extra container slot for holding a sim. This is in fact a puddle, turned into a fountain and game puddles are either recolorable or have any container slots. So, such a request is at the moment, impossible. If you don't like the fountain the way it is, well, do not download it.

Located in Plumbing/Miscellaneous, each fountain costs § 150,00

Polygon Counts:
bamboo fountain:
vertices 648, faces 880

Atomica fountain:
vertices: 1406, faces 2064

Ornate fountain:
vertices 4442, faces 6693 (high poly as the original).

Additional Credits:
I used Simpe, Milkshape and Photoshop 7 to make this object.
Thanks JB for his bamboo fountain that the spring is based on.

Great idea! I love the idea of giving dogs a way to get clean without always having to have them hop in the tub. It looks like so much fun, I wish that the older Sims could use it too.

This is perfect! Washing the dog is one of the more irritating aspects of pets, especially in homes with lots of them.

These are wonderful! Ever since I discovered that dogs will clean themselves using the water wriggler toy from OFB, I've tried to get one of those onto every dog-owning lot, but they need a hefty bit of yard space and don't make a lot of sense if you don't have kids. The bamboo fountain is an elegant addition to any yard.

I hated that whenever my Sims had several dogs, it got nearly impossible to keep their motives up.
Admitedly dogs are not as self-sufficient as cats, but even so owning a dog seemed too much of a hassle.

This is very helpul, and makes a lot of sense! I love how it is configured, it is just perfect.
Thank you very much!!
