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.


The B.E.C. (Bathroom Equipment Company) was created to fulfill a wish for a paper towel dispenser. Once that was done, "the boss" thought that one little object looked lonely. One thing led to another and before you could say "howdy".. a whole set was finished. I, "the boss", bring to you 9 new meshes to beautify your commercial lot bathrooms. (They can also be used in residential bathrooms and home business restrooms.)





All were tested in game and all should be base game. Any problems, let me know!

NOTE:
*If you have Apartment Life, all of these can be shifted.
*The soap dispenser is placed to the side of the footprint. I did this for those who might not be able to use "setquartertileplacement on" or want to use cheats to place it.
*The soap dispenser is the MASTER mesh for the Mini Trash Can and Mini Paper Towel meshes and is needed for those to work in game.
*All meshes EXCEPT the safety bar sit flat against a wall. The safety bar will clip into the wall without cheats. The safety bar was made for use in a stall and will sit flat against the stall wall. All other meshes will float in front of a stall wall a bit- BUT they do not get in a Sims way when using a stall. If you want them up against the stall wall, you will have to place them with cheats.
*"moveobjects on" MAY have to be used to place these in some places.
*The baby changing station is NOT functional. (I'm working on a functional version.) It is also a bit wider than 1 tile.
*All cost 8 Simoleons- I wanted to keep them cheap. All can be found in Decorative>Wall.
*I tried to keep the poly count pretty low. Hope they're not too bad .

EXTRA INFO:
If you would like to recolor these, you may. HOWEVER, to keep the poly count down, alot of the detail is in the texture. I do have the .psd's for some (computer shut off on me before they were all saved!) of these meshes and will share them if anyone wants them.

Collection files included- place in your collections folder. (If any of these don't show up for community lots, please let me know and I will fix it!)

Credit for the inspiration goes to: Bezo..thank you for your amazing patience while I was working on this set- and everyone in my thread in the CFF for dreaming up the ideas for the rest of the set.
