I often create lovely nurseries, but unless I put a bathroom right next to them, the parents have to hike a mile uphill through snow to empty their little darlings' potties and it annoys me so much!

So this is a mod to the Maxis potties so that when they need to be emptied, the Sim looks for a bin instead of a toilet. A bin is a rather more appropriate item to have in a nursery than an adult toilet!

Those of you that know my mods will realise I like to make realistic changes which is why this is not a "no-empty" potty. There are a few of these around, but not to my taste as feels a little like cheating For those interested however, the related pages tab has links to those I know about on MTS.

For all the custom content potty chairs out there, it will not affect them since the code is not global for these objects (Why Maxis, why?). If you are the creator of a custom content potty chair and would like to include this change (very small) in your object, click on the button below to expand the instructions - it is a very simple change.

This mod changes the following Maxis potties:-
Tinkle Trainer 6000 Potty Chair Base Game
File name: pottychair-usebin-Mog-20100224.package

Lil Angel Potty Chair requires FreeTime
File name: pottychairclassic-usebin-Mog-20100224.package

I don't know of any mods this clashes with, but I suspect if there are any clashes it will be with a mod which does a very similar thing. There is always the possibility of course, so the pertinent information for the owner of the other object is here.
