This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.


"gather water" option added from patch 03/06/2020 (please note the option will only appear when you have the off-the-grid lot trait active)

I love to build old style houses (medieval, victorian, etc), and with these houses I try to use no electrical objects as they spoil the idea.

For me the sprinkler system/fire alarm is a must in my houses, as there are no firemen in the game (they have been added in the 03.06.2020 patch! ) and it's risky to rely on your sims to put fires out. Having one of those panels on the wall outside my house is not only ugly, but it goes against my ideas for a truly old style house. So I wanted to fix that.

I've cloned a debug water pump object and added the sprinkler functionality to it. So it can be placed around your old style house and look normal.

This is not a replacer, it will add a new object

You must place it outside if you want it to cover your entire house (if it is placed in 1 particular room, it will only work in that 1 room)

This can be used off-the-grid and does not require smoke detectors to work

Thank you so much for your wonderful replacements: the well will be perfect for medieval styled houses, the pump for victorian ones and the bucket for any house. It's great to get rid of this very ugly device designed by EA!!

Thank you sooo much for these items!!!!
Greedy me needs to ask if you have considered making a replacement for the thermostat. It would be fantastic to have something more appropriate looking for Victorian houses, for example.
THANKS!!!

I didn't think about the thermostat, but it's a good idea and I will definitely look into it. Thanks
I will go through the item lists and see what I can replace it with. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

There is an urn that is a thermostat if you search on the site. It only has one color though.

I am not getting the gather water interaction on my off the grid lot. I can think of two possible reasons why, but I'm curious if anyone else is having the issue and has isolated the cause. I do have the geothermal lot trait, so I'm not sure if that might deactivate it (though I can still gather snow with this), and I have SNB Bills which could interfere, but I'm not sure.

@Sweetgirl612
Someone did mention they had trouble with one of the sprinkler system.
I'm not sure what could prevent it from working...
I took the gather water interaction (<T>235798<!--gatherWater_FishingSpot--></T>) directly from the Whispering Wishing Well from Romantic Garden Stuff. I didn't think it would matter if you have that pack or not.. But, do you perhaps not own that pack?
If you do own the pack, please can you test gathering water from that well? To make sure that definitely works

Thanks
