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.

Like most of my uploads, this is something I started to fill a need I had for my own game, that kind of got away with me! The modern looking Fjord counters and matching Archipelago island are my favorite Maxis counter. I think I used them in every house when I only had the base game! Now that I have a new graphics card and can push all the settings up to high, I realize that the last color of this beautiful counter is not just a strange pinky color, but is actually a burlwood texture, but with a sort of haze over it. Also, the original black stone counter top has a similar hazy look. I was building a modern kitchen and realized that I needed a very dark wood set, but not black, as most of my dark cc kitchens include as a dark version. So, I decided to repair what looks like a mistake in this last texture.

When I finished adjusting the saturation for the first recolor, I decided to add some additional granite tops and colorful cabinets.

Then, finally I decided that because none of the Maxis wood finish fridges matched these counters, I better make a few of those, also.

All nine recolors include both a clean and dirty state. For the dirty state, I chopped up DremeMynd's CounterCulture dirt template (available here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=35675) and stuck it back together Frankenstein style for my own counters. Thank you, DremeMynd!
I hope you all enjoy this download. Leave feed back, it makes me grin!
