FUNCTIONAL WATER PUMP

FUNCTIONAL WATER PUMP



Update 25.07.21 – 

1. Updated for Cottage Living

2 . Chage in how water bucket is used – 

  • While showering or bathing, giving toodlers or pets a bath –  if the water bucket is in your sim’s inventory, then you can click on the bucket to use collected water –> boost to water utility production ( reduction in bill) [Eco Living Functionality]
  • Now water is required for only off the grid actions on shower, tub , sink and toilet ( and thus is available only on off the grid compatible plumbing)
  • Use water to replace the water in the washing tub

 I have removed the other overrides because it was a very clumsy way to approach this mod. I will add more uses fro water to the mod.

      2. Earlier I said the water pump wasn't working. However, I'm a moron. I forgot to turn on my scripts after updating. Water pump is still there, I'm just a f*cking idiot. Sorry, and thanks.

      3. This mod is brilliant, but It's looks radiculus, when you must take water from pump in ultra moder mansion. Please, make this needed only if lot is not connected.

      4. Many features benefit from having a free high quality water source through a rainwater tank pump in the home. Problems can arise What is frustrating is that these problems can be avoided. If maintenance is a priority Some problems include poor water pressure, poor water quality, insect contamination, blockages (which can limit or stop water flow), and pump failure.
