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.

While I was making the Flamingo Kitchen a little while ago, a few of the pieces didn't quite fit. They felt more outdoors than kitchen and dining, so, patio set! I hit most of the tiki pieces from Seasons, then tried to include a good selection of base game patio stuff... and then the set just kept snowballing, and I don't know if I finished it so much as hit the brakes, but I hope there's enough here to get your sims outdoors for a bit of fun this summer! There's a collection file and icon to go with, and some new walls and floors are included. Rugs work with HL's Rug Fix, and all files have been Compressorized.

The only non-Maxis mesh is Painting 03 (Decorative / Wall / 860) by Shoukeir, Sims2Play, which you can grab right here.
(It's actually more a late addition to the Kitchen/Dining than a patio piece, using the flamingo fabric that started the set.)

I love these sets, and I appreciate you providing the in-game names of the items because I like to rename my files so I know exactly what I've got. However there are some items that you haven't listed, such as the pet items and some of the decorative stuff. Any chance you could add these names as well?

Thanks so much, everyone, for all the kind words. I can't tell you all how much they mean to me!

Ooh, good catch, @NellyStardust ! Didn't mean to leave those out -- will have 'em up in a little bit.
