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.
As requested here is a working Baby Bath. The baby bath is based on a pedastal sink. It was created with SimPE .34 and has a unique guid. I've designed it using the sleigh style so it matches the rest of that set. It uses custom textures. I've made it so the frame and faucet is one recolour option, and the baby bath and basket liner is another. The rest of the decor is not recolorable. I've included the cherry wood, and white frame recolours.

I had tried to make this as just a counter top item. I had figured out how to move the baby up, but couldn't figure out how to change where the adult's actions would occur, so I changed my approach and made it a baby bath with faucet and base.

All baby bathing animations should should work. I hacked the item so it does not allow dish washing, hand washing drinking etc. I also tried to tweak it so adults would spontaneously wash the baby, but I didn't see that it ever happened.

The object is meant to be placed against a wall.

Oh one word of warning this is not a low poly item. If I remember correctly it's around 9k poly's. I tried it on a low spec machine and it didn't seem to affect anything to baddly though.

The SS_BabyBath.zip contains the new mesh with the default oak, and blue baby bath.

The BabyBathFrameRecolours.zip contains the cherry wood and white recolours. You must download the first for the recolours to work.

4/12/05 I've pared down the poly's to around 3600. It's in the SS_BabyBathLowerPoly.zip. It has the same guid and name as the original, so you can only have one or the other in game. If you want to use this one please delete/overwrite the original. I also cleaned up the uv mapping on this one alittle. It is compatible with all the original recolours. The pic of just a single blue baby bath, is the lower poly count version.

As requested here is a pink recolor of the baby bath/basket liner. This requires the original mesh. This will work with any of the frame recolours.

As always you may recolour as you like, but do not post my files on any sites. If you recolour, please put a link here to share with others.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

The first file is the mesh. The second are the recolors. So, I'm guessin' you download the mesh without question, as you need it for the recolors to work.

Thanks for the awesome object! :D
