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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I love to have a combo tub/shower for my smaller homes, but the surround that Maxis put seems much too thick and unrealistic to me. Not to mention the sides don't go down so you can't see! So I removed the surrounds and connected the missing dots.

If you would like the expensive shower with the surround removed you can find it here

I also increased the stats in the tub/shower combo unit to match the Maxis Colonial tub.

The original tub/shower combo was not mapped correctly by Maxis, leaving the showerhead not recolorable. My version now correctly recolors.

NOTE: These are a slave object to the original Maxis objects. All recolors of the original Maxis showers will apply to this.

The showers begin with HL...Slave. Those are the two modified meshes. The HL....SpringtimeRiver are the two recolors that will work with these and the original Maxis meshes.

Curtains are Maxis bedding match by CTNutmegger at N99; Double and Single

Added a pre-pets version! Please note there are two versions. Please download the version that ends with BASE if you do not have any EP's later than Pets.
