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 made these a while ago because I love tin robots, and I couldn't find any recolors. Having just three different choices was kinda sad.

I've made nine for now: Turquoise, pink, black and white (with HAL9000's eye on the red button ) , golden (steam-punk-ish), yellow, metallic, some kind of green/gold vegetal design, a bright flowery pattern one, and how not, a grilled cheese robot, red with the well known grilled cheese sandwich logo.

You can see them all in these pictures (all in game screenshots):

You can choose these recolors when you're gonna build them on the robot station or later with the design tool. Of course, you'll need open for bussines.

They are just recolors, I don't see any reason for them not to work. In any case, if there are problems, please tell.

This is my first upload, by the way. I'm not very good at packing things, and such.
