This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I improved the equality doors. It's actually only one as of now (22.1.2018), so you might wanna redownload. I made the icon recolourable and added the white icon as a recolour. I also added a diagonal because it was turning into the female restroom door on diagonal walls.

I made a CEP extra. If you're looking for custom recolours of the restroom door icons, get it here.

This is a default replacement for the icons on the restroom doors. That means it just replaces the horrible orange signs on them, and leaves whatever recolours you have for the door part alone.

I made two different versions, the symbols ♂/♀ and the figures.
They both come in black and in white for each door, so you can choose which one you want for both separately.

...and:

A "universal" door, naturally both all genders are allowed to pass here.
It's an all shiny new door, so it'll show up as a separate object in the catalog and you can have it in addition to the defaults.

EQUALITY!

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

Thank you for this! I have such a hard time distinguishing the difference between the doors from the distance where I play.

I opted for the male/female icons in your second picture. I never liked the woman with the skirt and the man with the pants icons in the game. These look sharp. Thank you!
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

I love the equality door and use it all the time in my game. I recently noticed though that there seems to be no diagonal for the door. Is this a problem with my installation or is it intended? Thanks for this awesome door!

Yes, it's a feature. Nah. I meanwhile fixed that and updated the files, so just redownload. The white one is a recolour of the black one rather than a separate object now, though. That means the game won't find it anymore and replace it with women's restroom doors everywhere you've used it. Shoot me a message in case you mainly stuck to the white one and I'll swap that for you. (It takes about 3 seconds so no reason to send you on a door replacing odyssey through your hood.)
