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.

I took some cool snapshots within the game and turned them into wall hangings.
They came out looking quite awesome.

All are recolours of the large painting with the mountains on in, except for one, which is a recolour of Bella's portrait.

Some were edited a bit.


This is how they fit with your interior design:

Please regard that these were made far before any TS2 expansions came out,
making the snow themed picture a bit more complicated to set up and the title "Bon Voyage" incredibly ironic

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Excellent work! It is always good to see wall hanging that actually fit within the Sims' world. If you're thinking about doing more, I heartily encourage it!

These are really creative. Great work, I hope to see more.

Nice! You might want to upload a new copy of your rar file that doesn't have a spare copy of the CEP package in it, though.

I believe that extra file enables these paintings to appear in the game.
Do not delete that one.

Tnx every one.
If I get any new ideas you'll be the first to know. :D

JRW, these paintings are lovely! Thankyou!
However, akatonbo is correct- you should not package the CEP with this. People will most likely have the CEP in their files already, plus it is important that the latest version is used. Please repackage this without the CEP file in it.
For those people who have already downloaded this, please delete the CEP file (enable colour options) and download the latest version from here:

Thank you, JRW!

Great idea and nice presentation.

Question: What is your TOU/TOS Policy?

I would like to use these in some the lots I am planning to upload.

Thanks again, Nonni
