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.
Some more sim-realistic paintings, this time of buildings and landmarks. All of these show actual sim buildings and are recolours of base game meshes – like in real life, sims who can’t visit these places can now at least put up a picture.

First up is a small series of bright watercolours with seaside motifs:

From left to right:

12 Ocean Grove by keef1973
Greek Taverna by V1nd1care
Ocean Grove Lighthouse by keef1973
Monterey Bay by GiveTheNineARide
Harborside Café by V1nd1care

All of these are recolours of "The Meaning of Fruit" (1.500§).

All screenshots were taken by the respective creators. Many thanks to V1nd1care and keef1973 for helping me out with this!

Oh wow. See this is what I like to see. Overly realistic stuff makes me want to puke, but Simmified stuff makes me very happy!

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.
