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.
Simple Shower
The base game simple shower, you know the square one with the horrid 70's waffley glass surrounding it? I removed the surround and the base (channels too!). And as you can see the small floor drain is still there and now it fits much nicer in more modern surroundings.
  • 1 Channel
  • §225
  • Plumbing/Showers


Exhilarating X-Foliator
This is the expensive shower that is designed for corners. It is still designed for corners, it just has the back tiled part removed (channel too!).
  • 3 Channels (Base, Rail, Fixture)
  • §650
  • Plumbing/Showers


So...you want to have your showers as blue leopard spots?
Who am I to ask what you want to do in your own bathroom? mumbles...mumbles....crazy new-age decorators... Well for those of you that really truly must do this, take a look at this photo.


Default Colors
The default colors for both showers is the same as the corresponding base game showers. The picture shows the Simple Shower, but the X-Foliator one has the same colors. Plus all the rails in the X-Foliator are the same, so it seemed redundant to take a picture of that.


Compatibility
Made with Game Version 1.7.9. Should work with any patched game.

Polygon Counts:
Simple Shower 554 - High/Low are the same since so much was removed
X-Foliator 1209/671

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you!
now we only need a tub/shower that doesn't have some mysterious material section. What the hell was EA thinking not giving us a built in shower/tub?

I had your backless showers in my S2 game and was sure hoping you would do them for S3. I was so happy to see these that I couldn't hit the download section fast enough, lol. Thank you!

I've tried a few different backless showers for TS3, but these look nicer than the ones I've found...not to mention much more versatile and attractive than the originals from the game. Thanks!

Does this replace the EA showers as defaults or can I have both if I want it? TYVM! These are awesome, so I hope I can get them in my game soon. <3
