Does everyone on your street have the exact same mailbox?
And does everyone on your street have the exact same rubbish bin as you, sitting out on the Berm for all days?
Her in NZ we do actually all have the same rubbish bin, but they only go out to the berms on rubbish or recycling day. We have a red bin for rubbish, a green bin for echo and a yellow bin for recycling!
So since in your life you dont have the same mailbox as Joe Bloggs next door, I have found some alternatives to dare your sims to be different! Also some other rubbish bin options!
Will also be looking at some community phones as well, since that thing is rather fugly!
From cmomoney, we have a brick coverup, just pop over the current boring mailbox and viola!
From Michelle we have some lovely decorative mailbox posts, these have invisible recolours of the game mailbox so you dont need to delete the mailbox.
Windkeeper has a nice mailbox cover, comes with a shelf to pop the mail on
Rebeccah has created a mailbox for medieval and fantasy players – a tree stump! As you would have to delete the maxis mailbox for this one then I suggest you back up your game first, just in case! Also you can only have one global mailbox in your game at a time, otherwise you could bork it up.
Crocobaura made a simrock mailbox and trashcan to go with the flintstones set. Think these would also work for a hobbit house 😉
Parsimonious has some vintage mailbox covers and community phone covers.
HugeLunatic as taken away all the yucky looking blue pokey out stuff from the phone and just left it plain.
And Maylin has hidden it in this awesome British phone booth!
Nicvncnt made a whole new fully functional phone booth
Slig made this default community phone
Rebeccah made a more modern rubbish bin
And for those medieval players she has also made a barrel bin
Slig has also made a bin by misty fluff into a default community bin
And I find the best object yet is Ye old Coopers Barrell by Sophie david, theres so much you can do with this it blows me away, go read carefully!
And thats it, as I am about to melt, its so hot so am packing a picnic lunch and heading to the pool!
Happy Simming! 🙂
