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.
Seven additional colour variants for the VAULT islands and cabinets that are in the game files but not used.

You also need the updated VAULT lightfix from here for the cabinets with glass parts to display properly (they have wrong references by default, which are fixed in that fix). The no-drop cabinets (same post) are updated to include the hidden colours as well.

Update 2015-11-13: I added an alternate “no splash” version for the counters, which only uses the backsplash-less models (see the last screenshot). Use either one or the other, not both! No-Backsplash overrides for all of the Maxis basegame counters (including the original Vault colour variants) are here.





The counter islands do not have these additional variants, I checked (I guess that’s why they weren’t made available). All of the additional colour options are in the same catalogue thumbnails as the original items.

Thanks. I always thought it was strange that this set only had 3 color options.

Do you know where I could find the textures for these colours? I'd like to take a stab at making recolours for the island counter and use these textures as a reference.

The textures would be in fullbuild 6,7,8. I've exported most or all of the “body” textures (attached below) but not the countertops or glass (not sure if the islands have glass parts at all); look in the MaterialDefinitions in MODL for the references of whatever is missing.

Post a link here when you upload them somewhere, I'll put a link in the first post =).

I have the light fix, but the cabinets still show up wrong. Am I missing something?

Sorry for how long it's been, but I've been really busy with real life. I do have the updated light fix. I redownloaded just to make sure that I had it.

I downloaded this a few days ago and the texture is wrong on some of the wallcabinets.
There are the big ones where you can see stuff like plates and all this in it, but they are
flat right behind the 'glass door'. I have a picture here. Do I need do to something to fix this
or is this a general problem? I tried to do some CC with blender, S4S and all this but am not
that good at it. So I don't know if this really is a 'problem' or if it can be fixed easily.
Thank you for all your fantastic CC and your mods!!
