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.
Hi,
here's my dreamy castle bathroom set, that slowly grew into a collection.

All items are base-game compatible, aside from one painting that requires NightLife EP.
Collection file included - place it in Downloads, or Collections Folder.

I'm aware that some of you will only be interested in my orchid plants,
so I've attached additional set of orchids, that pull textures from base game pots:

Found in Buy Mode/Decorative/Plants
Orchid in a Clay Pot - 201 S - master mesh, required.
Orchid in Smaller Clay Pot - 200 S
- both pull textures from "Simulated Succulent".
Orchid in Mystic Life Pot - 200 S - Pot textures pulled from "Mystic Life Flower".
These meshes can be used together with the Chateau orchids.


Chateau Bathroom Set:

Vintage Toilet - Master mesh, required by all meshes inside the Bathroom Set Folder!

Vintage Toilet with a Lid
cost 1000 S each, found in Buy Mode/Plumbing/Toilets
Note: only male Sims put the seat up when using toilet,
animations will look wonky. But I just had to have a printed toilet seat in my game
and maybe some of you need one too
(yeah, I know.. It couldn't get more chateau than that )

Shower BathTub - costs 2800 S, has recolorable metal subset,
found in Buy Mode/Plumbing/Showers,

Buy Mode/Plumbing/Sinks:
Large WashStand - 955 S - second master mesh to three objects with marble top:
Smaller WashStand - 950 S
and
Chest of Drawers - 422 S
Endtable - 421 S
Both found in Buy Mode/Surfaces/EndTables

Lacquered Pot Stand
Porcelain Tray - has five placement slots.
Both cost 102 S. Found in Buy Mode/Surfaces/Miscellaneous

Buy Mode/Decorative/Miscellaneous:
Porcelain Toothbrush Holder
Porcelain Jar
Porcelain Cosmetics
Porcelain Soap Dish
- all cost 102 S.

Buy Mode/Lighting/Wall Lamps:
Wall Candelabrum - 359 S - Gold parts pull texture and recolors from base game candelabrum,
I've also included a few
recolors of Antebellum Wall Lamp

Buy Mode/Decorative/Wall:
Framed Antique Prints - 623 S - has recolourable picture subset.
Framed Prints - Anonymous Masterpiece - 622 S - Pulls texture and recolors from NightLife EP painting.

Orchid Plant Vase - 203 S - master mesh, required by other orchids,
file contains 5 colors.
Orchid Plant Hexagon Pot - 202 S
Orchid Plant Smaller Vase - 202 S
Found in Buy Mode/Decorative/Plants


Chateau decor items
(items, that don't require Vintage Toilet mesh):

Buy Mode/Decorative/Miscellaneous:
Glass Jar
Folded Towels Stack - has one placement slot.
Both cost 101 S and have recolors included in the mesh file.

Tub Curtain - 400 S - mesh contains three shades.
Found in Buy Mode/Decorative/Curtains

Buy Mode/Decorative/Mirrors:
Large Three-Fold Mirror - 852 S - Master mesh to other mirrors:
Smaller Mirror - 850 S
Quatrefoil Mirror - 851 S

As a little bonus,
I've included tiles and floors featuring my beloved Quatrefoil
(pattern comes from early 19thc. cement tiles)
Build Mode/Floor/Tiles
Large Quatrefoil Floor Tile - three shades of gray
Small Quatrefoil - Floor & Ceiling Tiles
- all cost 35 S
Build Mode/Wall/Panels
White wood & Quatrefoil Panel
White Wood Panel
White & Grey Wood Panel
- all cost 9 S.

If you like the console/endtable featured in the screenshots, look for the file in the comments section (page 2).

Enjoy !


Note: Orchid plants are between 1500 to 2180 polygons,
so if you're running the game on a slower PC,
better not to have dozens of these on one lot


I've generated random GUIDs for my mesh files.
More info:

As always, remember to check if all new meshes you put in Downloads or Bins folder show up in the game.

I am in awe of all this amazing work you've provided here at MTS2! Your work also made me take notice to a particular table you used to display your creations on, especially with "Image #4" of this "Chateau Bathroom Set" posting. I'm asking about the two-tile gray table in many of your images, which looks possibly like a "Maxis Add-On" of the Apartment Life "Vintage End Table by Conexion Bohemia" I've looked elsewhere, and just about everywhere for that two-tile table. By chance, did you create it, and if you did, will you be sharing it here at MTS2 in the near future?
