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.
Ok, so its not the most amazing upload ever, but it is a handy little package in my opinion. I've been sitting on this for a while. After plasticbox uploaded some houses with a roof recolor done by Neveah223, I decided to turn them into defaults. Place this download in your downloads folder and all 23 Maxis roofs (not counting the 3 BV grass roofs) will adapt the new white trim. Quite a handy little thing. The white trim looks a MILLION times better than the default grey. This also changes the underside of the roof making it white as well.

The adorable gable accent is from Marina's Sims found at this page.

Many homes in my neighborhood are brightly painted with white trim. Nice idea!

This is by far, the best thing ever! I have a couple of custom roofs with white trim and have always loved the look.
Love it, love ti, love it.

Just a question - do I need to download the original recolours by Neveah223 before I download this for it to work? Because I can't find the originals...

The originals are no longer available, that's partly why I made these! Glad you like them everyone!

These are beautiful Phae! And much better than having to locate and download the separate colors Great work!

Now streaming on at or - whichever is easier for you to type in your browser.

Lovely! Now I can can rid of the non-default ones.

OMG these are BRILLIANT! I love making Victorian style cottages. Most of the siding I use has white trim, and the grey/ black roof edging looked *awful*. This will help so much!

If you mean the gable ornament, you can find it here:
Just scroll down a bit and you'll find it.
