Title: Default Replacement Community & Residential Trash Barrels
To provide period appropriate default replacements for the community and residential trash cans. Because these trash barrels are default replacements, they will automatically appear on all existing and new lots throughout every neighbourhood (unless the original trash cans have been deleted).
Contents & Description:
These files may be installed in any Downloads folder. If you wish to revert to the EA defaults, simply delete the files at any time when the game is not running. Please do not attempt to delete these default replacements directly from the catalogue.
Default Community Trash Barrel - sdTrashBarrelCommunityDefault.package - found in Misc/Misc, §75
Default Residential Trash Barrel - sdTrashBarrelResidentialDefault.package - found in Misc/Misc, §74
The trash barrels in this set have the following features: may be placed on locked tiles, may be placed on beach tiles, non-flammable, may be struck by lighting, cannot be stolen, neighbourhood viewable even in basegame, they remain in place if a lot is sold, and to avoid accidentally deleting the only trash barrel on the lot they are not deletable (but use "MoveObjects on" if you do want to delete them).
Each of these barrels are functionally identical to the non-default Trash Barrel distributed in the original Old Cooper's set - and these barrels can use any of the barrel surface and contents recolours distributed with that set.
Like the original Trash Barrel for All Times and the Rogue's Trash Barrel, either of these objects may also be used as the master object for all the other components of the Old Cooper's set. They will not conflict with the updated original or the cheater's trash barrels. In fact all four variants of the trash barrel may be used - even on the same lot. This chart illustrates the design mode differences between the four barrels.
Like the original, these barrels have the following gameplay features: no limit to the amount of trash they can "contain", may be Eaten from or Salvaged by Sloppy Sims as well as all Zombies and Active Werewolves, may not be vandalized or upset by animals.
I do not recommend including these default replacements with uploaded lots because I believe that players should be able to freely choose which and hacks they wish to use. Instead, I would suggest including the original Trash Barrel, which is freely distributable. Therefore, please ensure these are only available directly from here.
