Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
One unit. Two machines.
We all have different lifestyles. Some of us have very big households and with that, also very big loads of laundry! Some others have smaller households or just started a new life in their first house and their laundry will definitely look a lot different every time, size wise. That's the reason that brought us to create DualWash and DualDry. Those units feature a second machine on the top, smaller in size, not in performance.
Navigating through the options of the cycles, made easier.Our cycle settings are completely customizable, to make sure you get your clothes washed the way you want. Start with selecting a pre-made program using the dial, then, move to the options on the side and select the extra features you want and the temperature, spins and rinses. The mini top load unit works separately from the main big capacity drum, it also comes with its own power button on the control panel.
Smaller body, bigger technologies.While our machines are designed with a slimmer body, they contain much more advanced technology inside of them:
Informations about the objects:
Both the objects feature full size 2048 x 2048 textues for diffuse, normal and specular, together with a slightly higher than normal poly count, keep that in mind when downloading.
Full name in catalog:
- DualDry: H&B DualDry - Tumble Dryer
- DualWash: H&B DualWash - Washing Machine

Edited tuning for better experience:
As you could guess from the preview pictures and from the brand description, these machines have all the upgrades pre-installed. With that, comes a price increase: they both cost 3000 simoleons.
Developing history (actually useful information for CC creators):
When i first tried to make a washer, not only it didn't look as appealing as DualWash, it also glitched out very heavily! This is a picture of my first attempt:
While it might look fine from this picture, in certain angles of the camera the body of the washer would leave this planet bu completely disappearing. After 1 month i gave up, but then i tried again with Sims4Studio, meaning that i would have lost the possibility to do the geostates! That wasn't actually the only problem:
I was so upset i got back into trying with TSRW because i didn't want to give up! I finally found a work around to the disappearing issue:
You want to untick the " [x] extra bounding box" value in the material "phong" in sims4studio. That somehow ticks itself in TSRW while it shoudln't.
