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.
Hi
Here are my promised candles. I just hated the fact there was only one candle - how was it supposed to match everything?! Well, apparently it wasn't So, there you go, 6 new candles with a bit of shading of my own idea
Have fun and if you like them, just scroll down and type a few words about your feelings or if you're lazybones like me most of the time, just click thanks

Mara <damnedcitizen>

P.S. Currently (till September) I don't take requests, sorry. Gotta play that damn game finally! lol

! IMPORTANT ! 09.01.2010: This set of items has been fixed and now works properly with WA and the patch that came with it. You can now safely redownload the fixed items and use them in your game.


Item info
Price 55$ (because it's my favourite figure

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you! I love the new colors!

Thank you also for including all in one rar!!! I will pass up a download of cool things cause I just don't want to download each one seperately. I don't have enough time to play the game and would have none if I downloaded all the CC I like individually!!

You Rock!

Mmm Cafe Latte sounds good right about now! Thank you I love them!

Edit: I assume these aren't recolorable with CAS?

Nice, I really wanted more colours for the candle! Thanks for having the option to just download one or all of them at once too.

These are really nicely done, and I am so happy to have a choice now! Plan on any more colors in the future? Maybe some darker ones like red, or even black? Regardless, these are awesome, and thanks soooo much!

I'm not sure about this one..but I think no, because probably game has it coded somewhere that the yellow original one can be found as loot, and my candles have different names and so on. I'm not good at that kind of stuff, sorry. Btw, I didn't know you can find a candle when fishing :D

wow, that was a nice comment ^^ but there is a blue candle and a brownish one! maybe check them out in game - here they might look a bit brighter.

I do not suffer from insanity...I enjoy every minute of it!

Thanks so much!!I was thinking that the first day I played!! Glad we have some other colors now!!

I don't like it when I say people should die and then they do. I don't want that kind of responsibilty; at least not until I'm in upper middle management.
