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.
The one overused and abused object from TS2 that I miss the most is the Aquaplus Shower Stall - with the back removed. I've had this mesh sitting in my WIP folder for months due to the shower curtain animation impaling sims, so I finally dusted it off and finished it! No more impaling! Yay! The shower is designed to fit snugly into a 2x1 space, so the tub and shower rod is up tight to the walls, and the shower head and handles appear to be attached right to the wall.


Check out the moving shower curtain! Wooooot!

Technical Bits
  • Buy/Appliances/Showers & Tubs
  • §475
  • 4 Channels (tub, hardware, curtain, rod)
  • One preset (as shown)


Polygon Counts:
Polys are a bit higher than the EA expensive shower/tub due to the curtain mesh. Most curtain meshes are flat and EA attempts to add folds via textures - which I don't much like the look of - so I am using the curtain mesh from the TS2 shower.

High - 2693 (EA one is ~1700)
Low - 1572

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 very much for this. I was hoping for a tub shower combo for my less affluent sims. I was wondering does this display the bubble bath like other tubs do?

I had hoped you would do this type tub, and there it is! I loved your backless, simple tub set in Sims 2, now I can have this for Sims 3. I am a happy girl now, my antique houses can have a proper looking tub/shower set. You are truly amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Yes.. this is great. Thank you HL!! This is a much more true to life shower. All the tubs that EA has provided with no curtains makes no sense. I always use your curtains that don't snap to the wall to make this effect. But still they could only use bath and not shower. Now they can do both.. with curtains.. YAY... Thank you again!

I am overjoyed. I've missed this more than any other TS2 object. The moving curtain makes me weep tears of joy.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I've been wondering why no one has made an object like this for the sims 3. I was actually looking for something just like this recently and you've answered my prayers. Now if someone can make a closet like from apartment life my game will be complete.

Thank you! This has been a missing feature from the game since day one. It will be going in every house I build.

SO, does it actually animate, or is it a geostate? I'll download it anyway to see, but great job either way!
