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.

I noticed that some of my sims in my Victorian neighborhood have been getting a little out of shape lately. It's probably due to the fact that the blue and white exercise machines completely ruined the decor of all of my beautiful old fashioned homes. These recolors of the Exerto Free Press Exercise Machine, the Exerto Butterfly Exercise Machine, and the Exerto Leg Extension Exercise Machine should help that out a bit.

Keep in mind, like my Steampunk Computer recolor, these aren't intended to be historically accurate in any way, but rather to just help blend these necessary sim objects into non-contemporary periods.

I recolored the three machines below (they all use the same texture), but not the machine that came with the basegame because it was just too modern looking for a bit of bronze and red leather to fix. These three machines, if remeshed to be a little rounder, might actually have existed since they are just a series of pulleys.

Note: The red leather and the gold metal are interchangeable, meaning you can use my red leather seats with the Maxis white metal, or the gold metal with the blue leather seats, if you so choose. They don't look half bad either way.

You probably need the CEP to access these recolors.


Objects that receive this recolor:
Exerto Free Press Exercise Machine
Exerto Butterfly Exercise Machine
Exerto Leg Extension Exercise Machine

They can be found in Hobbies>Exercise

I thought "leather and brass" before I even read the text, so nicely done!

That is simply stunning. I much prefer this colour of the crappy maxis colour.
