Hi guys!

Compatible with game version: 1.64.84.1020 (Eco Lifestyle and patches)

- Looks like an EA bug, but here's a work around : to "Give toddler bubble bath" after the upgrade your sim has to be holding the toddler.

Update:
- Base game compatible

So...you finished your laundry? Why not scrub your muddy toddler or dog in the tub next?

Features:
- A washtub for all your toddler/small dog bathing needs. (Technically you can wash large dogs in it too, but they don't fit...I'm working on some off grid large tubs for sims and their large dogs next...wish me luck!)
- Functions both "off the grid" and "on the grid" (There will be duplicate grayed out interactions when "off grid", these are the ones that use the normal "on the grid" water and produce bills...so you still have that option when "on the grid")
- Is unbreakable
- Can be upgraded for self cleaning and clean coat
- All the colours from the Laundry Day tub are available.
- The footprint arrow indicates the best position for your sims to access the tub so toddlers will be placed in the center. Toddlers placed from the other side will be slightly off center.

For more Off grid/tiny home combo items:
- Classic Toilet/Sink Combo
- Modern Toilet/Sink Combo
- Tiny Spa Toilet/Sink Combo
- Off grid, one tile shower toddler/pet tub combo




You'll notice that the "footprint" is off center...not to worry, the actual object footprint is correct, but the game always puts the reference of it directly on a square. Unfortunately I couldn't center it because of the way sims are programmed to position/use the tub. Just hold down the "alt" key when placing.

Enjoy!

Genius! I hate having bathtubs in my Sims's houses because of babies/dogs especifically, since my Sims will use it often instead of the showers I usually give them - and then take ages in a bath, or even come out with stupid bubbles moodlets.
Will definitely start using your CC right now, thanks a lot for this! Bathtubs begone! :D

Have you extracted the files? You need to use WinZIP or something similar to do that, and then place it in your mods folder.
To extract you can right-click on the file and say extract here.
Hope this helps.

Hii! I loved the idea and I dowloaded the package but when I try to use it in-game, it only shows "upgrade" option , does somebody knows if it is bc its outdated or smth?

Wait... is this a mod on the existing basin? Or should I be able to find a new basin somewhere? It's in my mods folder and extracted but where do I find the object...?

I love this! I'm very curious as to how you made it function "off the grid". I'm currently trying to figure out how to make some CC objects I downloaded function off the grid. Got some sinks that look like barrels & pitchers and toilet that looks like a chamber pot that should function off the grid but were made before the eco pack so they won't work. I've tried looking up tutorials but google keeps showing results for how to stop objects from snapping to grid. Saw some discussion where people edited tags but that just changed the object's description in catalog & not the actual function.
I've posted questions on mod technical discussion threads but so far no replies.

This mod doesn't work. There isn't any washtub besides the one in the Laundry day DLC, and when you click on it, it doesn't work as a was tub for dogs. So Not sure what's wrong!

Did you get it to work? Although I'm guessing with the new bath updates you may not need it anymore?
