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 custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I did not like only having the option of one colour for the telephone, neiter did I like the beige colour when I had nice white furniture and so on. So I decided to do some recolouring.

I made a blue (dunno why), black, and white/gray recolour which applies to both the table and the wall phone by maxis. The white/gray one is by far the best looking imo. That was my objective

NEW recolours:

Colouring the Handset: To get the handset in the right colour you have to start live mode, then go back into buy mode so you can use the design option and click on the handset to choose a colour. for 15$. I couldnt figure out how else to do it sorry. It allowes mixing of colours though!

the screenshot shows the standard one on the far right for comparison.

have fun!

Oh this is another great creation by fellow mts2 member. Because the phone is so small, we CAN see it cleary and is very eye catching so we really need re-colors of the white phone, which by the way is NOT a neutral color, Maxis included in the game because it totally clash with most wallpaper, carpet, and appliances color. So a big thank you from me to you brotherquintus.

This is by far the smartest upload I've seen. Keep up the good work. We'll be looking forward to your next uploads.

How did you recolor the handset? I tried to do this myself using Wizards of SimPE but the handset stayed the default beige color.

Thank you!! I hated the phone mainly because it was such a horrible blah color. But it also blended in with the enviroment too much. I will be replacing all my phones now! Thanks again!!

I never understood why the phone didn't have some color options from the get-go. Glad you were willing to share you efforts in filling the Maxis gaps.

Thank you.

it says in the post. The skin is the same for both the headset and the station. So you only need to change that one skin.

The only problem was that the headset, by default, takes the beige colour. I found out that you could change it just by using the design tool on the headset, after going into live mode. i hope other people also make recolours

These are great recolors - and very much needed. I don't need purple and hot pink phones - I need nice colors like this.
#21 Old 22nd Jan 2006 at 4:07 AM
These are so awesome! I love the black one

The recolors aren't showing up in my game for some reason. 6(._. ) I seem to have problems with certain custom content not showing though. Am I missing something?
