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.

This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I love the Stick 'em Up Bulletin Board from the University EP, so I've searched for recolors for it everywhere, because the two options provided by Maxis are not enough when you're trying to decorate a school or a dorm.

Although I found some neat recolors around the web, I wanted some that matched the original boards, with all those cute little pictures, trinkets and simlish font, so I decided to make my own.

Lack of time and other projects made me forget about this idea until a couple days ago, when a bad case of insomnia had me browsing through some tutorials and fooling around with SimPE. And that's when I discovered that I could extract literally all the pictures and illustrations I wanted from the original games.

One night and 300 extracted pictures later, which were then sorted, cropped and resized according my needs, here are fifteen new options for your dorms, schools, studios and any other place where you'd like to place a bulletin board.

I've had a bulletin board for almost all my life, and on it I've pasted posters, stickers, postcards, newspaper adds, bits of paper... everything. And I followed that mentality while I chose the designs for these recolors. You can take a close look at them on the pictures I uploaded, of course.

All my files are clearly labeled, so you can choose which ones you want to keep at any time.

I hope you like them .

Great job on these, they look great! Every house I make tend to have one in the kitchen or study or kid's room and sometimes all of the above so this is perfect! I loved the grilled cheese one and the one for aliens, maybe the other creatures could have their own too *hint hint nudge nudge* ;-)
