Roses are red
Violets are blue
Outhouses smell like sh!t
But you won’t, ’cause
You’ll be squeaky clean after using this one
(All right, so I might need to work some on my poetry skills. 😛 )
So, a Yeti was going on a blind date. Now, this Yeti wanted to give their date a romantic gift for the occasion, something they knew said date would appreciate and cherish forever. Obviously, they wanted to give them… an outhouse. But not just any old outhouse! No, Yeti wanted it to be something like Veranka’s all-in-one bathroom, that raises Sims’ hygiene as well as their bladder. They asked me if I’d like to collaborate with them in making it, and since I really like Yetis (especially this one), I said yes. 🙂
The result was the “Smells Like Roses” Outhouse.
Update, 28 April 2015: As requested by godlimpingby, there is now a variation that doesn’t raise hygiene. See the end of the post for more info.
As per Yeti request, when your Sims use this outhouse, both their bladder and their hygiene will go up. Not only that, it advertises for hygiene as well, so Sims won’t just seek it out when their bladder is low, but also if their hygiene is. The same goes for Plantsims who are dehydrated. (Much as I’d like to take credit for that, I can’t; it’s all Maxis’ doing. If something advertises for hygiene, it advertises for water as well.) Also, it won’t get clogged and it won’t get dirty. Because an outhouse getting clogged wouldn’t make sense. 🙄
In addition to the one seen above, it comes with four smashing recolours, all made by my awesome co-conspirator – I mean, collaborator, Shastakiss. The roof and the outhouse are separate subsets, so you can mix and match the recols ’til your heart’s content. (The original mesh is from Turbosquid, but I’ve tweaked and remapped it a bit, better to suit my nefarious simming purposes. 😈 )
Shasta made such a great swatch, I’m just going to use theirs:
Of course, the outhouse is visible from neighbourhood view. It is a building after all, even if it’s a small one. 😉
This was cloned from a toilet stall, so Sims can’t use it to dispose of potty liners (since they can’t with the original object). It won’t cause jump bugs or anything; your Sims will just stomp their feet angrily and then throw the potty liner in the trash instead, so it’s perfectly benign. Just so you’re aware of it, and know that I am as well. (This error seems to be hard-coded into the toilet stall, because I could not get around it no matter how hard I tried. Sorry.)
Also, when your Sims push the door open, their right hand will clip into it for a moment. It is just for a moment, though, and you can only really see it from certain angles. You’ll probably only notice it because I’ve told you. 😛
Special Thanks . . .
. . .to Shastakiss, who didn’t just request this, but who also was the best beta tester and noticed/suggested lots of things I hadn’t thought of. U rock! ❤
Update, 28 April 2015: As requested below, I’ve made a variation that doesn’t raise hygiene. Don’t how romantic your date will find it, though. 😉
The no hygiene “Smells Like Advertised” Outhouse costs $45 (cheaper than the first one since it has fewer functions) and has the same Shastakiss recols as “Smells Like Roses”, but it’s not repositoried to it; to me, it seemed like you’d want one or the other in game, but not both. (It has its own GUIDs, though, so you can have them both in your game if you don’t think like me.)
