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.

This is an updated version of my Outdoor Sink which I released quite a while ago. If you have the older version, just over-write it with this one, the name and GUID number are the same and it will replace the original one. If you already have this sink on a lot, you may need to sell it and re-buy it to get the new color options.

It is compatable with any combination of expansion packs, or with just the base game.

1309 polys - the original Maxis sink is 1225 polys

New Features:
- The sink is now re-colorable
- It can be placed without using any cheats
- The "clean" and "dirty" states now work correctly

It works just like any other sink, your Sims can wash their hands, get a drink, do dishes just like they can with indoor sinks.

The download includes the mesh and three color options.

The mesh was built from scratch in MilkShape.

All my items including this one may be recolored/re-skinned.
You can use and alter my alphas and bumpmaps as you wish - no credit needed.

If you are posting your work here, link to the thread so people can get the mesh.

If you are posting on the Exchange, you should also link to the thread since meshes do not always package up properly in complete Sims and Lots.

If you are posting them on your own site you can offer my mesh for download on your site too. Credit for the mesh is appreciated but not required.

If you are altering the mesh for any reason, please take the trouble to do it correctly - change the filename, use fix integrety, and re-link it to your own color .packages.

You can use all my items in your lots, screenshots, stories, movies, and complete Sims - no credits necessary, just have fun with them.


To make this perfectly clear, what I am saying is that you can do whatever you want with my items, and post them anywhere you like. That includes free sites, the Exchange, paysites, and donator-only areas.

I just ask that you take the trouble to do it correctly so your stuff doesn't interfere with anyone else's.

I rarely download anything, but I had to have this! Thanks!

Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

I agree with toriamos this is great for the campgrounds. Very nice mesh too! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Great for campgrounds.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Oh I like this, it looks great and can't wait to play with this in my game. thanks so much Dr pixel.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

It's a great idea! I hope it's not unpolite to ask: is there any chance for a wooden recolor? Because that would fit into a medieval surrounding, and finding bath room stuff that fits in is still difficult.

I'd love it, but of course it's entirely up to you.

I cant wait to try this creation ingame. I have the spongebath mod and it would be cool if its affected by the mod. Even if not: I like the idea. Simple on the first sight but really smart. Thank you

Or may i suggest an always dirty/filthy looking recolour? öhö
