Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This was requested by my dear friend Wanda.

I liked this item when it was first released with OFB, but I didn't care for the way it worked and besides it didn't allow for use by toddlers.
Wanda's Sims are no longer given the option to even build it, we have concluded that she has a custom created item that is causing a conflict,
but she hasn't found the source of that problem.

When adding a new hack, I highly recommend that you check for conflicts with the Sims 2 Hack Conflict Detection
Utility found at http://www.simwardrobe.com under Sims 2 - Programs.

New Features:

I have made it buyable under Misc/Child for $450.

If placed outside for use it will not create puddles nor the gawd awful weeds that go with all the puddles.

It is use-able by toddlers. I used Wes_h's animations decompiler to attempt to edit the text of the child animations to convert them for toddlers, but I was not successful in getting them to stand on the ground at all times. I have
some animation lower but not all I also added a laugh for toddlers to the animations.

Toddler wiggle into their underwear just before using it, as they don't have the option to use a bathing suit.

All Sims will change back to regular clothing after use.

Their body temps will get just slightly blue while using, but as soon as they end the use, and change to regular clothing, their temps will be at a normal level of green. Great for your overheated sims and overly cold Sims.

Sims will also gain hygiene when using, along with fun but fun was already a part of the original version.

Enjoy!







Additional Credits:
Wes for his animation plugins.

Wanda for her request.

All the users that enjoy my work and encourage me to continue creating.

To all that has helped me learn these things and the people that have helped with the creation of the SimPE program. The list is to long to mentions everyone.

Yes, and seasons and pets too. See the little icons towards the bottom of the post? That's how you tell what is required.

Hurrah! Love the toys that come with OFB but never have the patience to get my sims earning the talent badges so this is great .

One slight problem though - this is what happened to little Niccolo Lothario after he'd played with it: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...20_352ce9b9.jpg

Their dog was also playing with it and didn't have the same problem. Haven't had the chance to test it with my other sims yet.

EDIT: If it's of any use I have all EPs & SPs apart from FFS.

Thank you for making this buyable & usable by toddlers. It should have been that way from the beginning. You do come up with the coolest things! We love you and your creations Rebecah!

Gosh I've never had that happen but what it is is the effect didn't close out. I think it was probably just a fluke, maybe try having the child play in it and then direct him to do something else. I actually didn't make any changes to how the effects work.

It's a "craftable" toy that your sims can make using the toy crafting station. OFB introduced 3 crafting stations that can be found in your catalog under hobbys, (Misc. I believe). There's a florist station (to make flower arrangements), a toy crafting station (in which you can make THIS water wiggler among other cool toys), and the robot crafting station. Your sims can use these stations to craft or make different objects that will go into their personal inventory (if you have them make more than 1).

It's strange that you say you have OFB yet have no idea about a core feature of that EP. You might want to read the manual for that EP & get familiar with it. Crafting objects & selling them in a Business is what it's all about.

I'm having the same problem as Wanda, I can't even find the thing. I know it was there I have OFB. I've taken out my DL and put them back 10 at a time in a separate folder. I've taken them completely out and it has just disappeared. lol Although I was never really impressed with it from the beginning because it seemed to me it should have been for toddlers and children. Now I'll use it. Thank you Rebecah!

Have had the same problem with every other sim that's played with it. Have tried getting them to do other things, change their outfit etc but the only thing that stops it is aging.

Still think it's fabby though

Rebecah, I noticed in the animation that the toddler was floating? I believe I've found the tutorial to keep them from floating away:

Unless you've tried it, then, I don't know. I am grateful for you giving our toddlers so many things, though!

Thanks fway for your attempt to help out...I really do appreciate you're taking the time to tell me about this, but unfortunately the thread in your link is for custom created animations. I edited the EA child animations with Wes's animation decompiler. I tried to compare a toddler and child animation to see if I could figure out the differences between the two, for height, but it's very complex. I was able to get some of the positions lower but not all.

Thanks so much for trying to help out!

Rebecah, thank you so much for this cute toy for toddlers, making it buyable and adding some anims for the toddlers! EA is so lazy that it's frightening lol In fact i haven't tested that particular craft station as i was disappointed by the 2 other ^^

I read you stopped the animals anims because of bad comments, it's too bad; stop if you want but please don't take seriously these stupid comments. I don't even understand these lazy posters as you were among the very rare sims creators to dare to dip your nose into animations and already made such huge progresses! But anyway you should 'work' on what you want... And i hope i'll see a lot of other amazing items from you!
