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.
As I was building an elementary school a month or two ago, I noticed a supreme lack of atmosphere in my classrooms. There was hardly anything to hang on the walls! So I made about thirty posters or so, but soon realized that it wasn't quite enough to cover the entire school. So I made more, and while I was at it, created some for the high school I built next. The result, as you can see, is an overabundance of posters, sure to fill any school decorating need.

The files are sorted into five zips. The first three use only require the base game, and will appear in the catalog as recolors of "Civic Idol," "Engineered Angst," and "Surfing the Universe." There is also a Uni pack (under "It's Reggae, Mon," "We Call it Football," and "Space Oddity"), and a Pets pack (under "Yummers in My Tummers"). At the time of creation, I wasn't intending to share them, or I would have made them all base-game compliant. I didn't tick the requirement boxes this time because they don't all require an expansion pack.

*For those of you looking to build a functioning school, I suggest taking a look at Simlogical's school hacks.*

Well, here they are- have fun with them!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I love you beyond reason. I went to Deco > Wallhangings to look for posters for my school, was sadly sighing at the prospect of looking through millions of downloads for a few measly posters, wondering if I should learn to do recolors... and there, on the very first page of wall hangings, I find this: the answer to all my wildest dreams. Thank you!

I was looking at all of them and saying "oh! that one's in the science room!" or "That one's familiar!" And I thought it was so funny because I've seen ALL of them before! Our school goes over board when buy posters... maybe a little... but I can remember all of them! That's so cool though.

I'd love to, but as I told someone else the other day at S2C, there's simply too much custom content in my school lots. If I left it in, the file sizes would be over 100 MB each, and if I took it out, they'd lose their flavor. However, there are several other schools available to download here.

Anyone else had this problem or any idea why?

Sorry, I'm at a loss. They're just simple recolors, so they should be able to work in everyone's games. I wish I could help.
