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.

This is a cloned version of the Round and Round Train Set that comes with Free Time. I wanted to try and make a bunch of cheaper, crappier versions of expensive items, so that my sims who are just starting out can join in on the fun, too...at the expense of good-looking stuff.

In the real world, you don't have to buy everything brand new. Why shouldn't this apply to our sims, too?

So this is, for the budding train enthusiast, a used Train Set. It costs 300 Simoleans, and comes complete with...a bunch of poorly-treated dingy equipment!

Both sets have the same lighting! Both are underneath the same lighting the same place in a windowless room. All the color changes are from the new texture. :D


Original and "Refurbished" Editions:


Changes from the original:

-Town pieces are aged and dingy, resembling a town in great disrepair


-Grass has become much more worn and dirty
-A child has attempted to use juice for water, leaving a stain


-Mountain has, surprisingly, become dirty
-Trees have lost their leafy greenness, becoming faded! Wouldn't be surprised if the previous owner left this thing outside.
-Track is dirty from kids playing around it all the time


-Bridge has broken supports
-Children have vandalized the billboards, one in immature simlish and one with a kitty
-Cars have clearly been played with and have scratches and dirt
-Railroad signs are broken
-Some of the lights are faded

Things that were NOT changed:
-Roads. Unfortunately the road texture is a corner piece, end piece, 3 way piece, and a small, small road piece. If I edited any of these apart from making them dingier(which I did), there'd be too-easy-to-notice repetitive dirty marks going down the roads, and it just looked unpleasant.
-There are no stat changes- it doesn't increase your sim's skills/interests any slower. It's simply uglier to look at- but that's the price you pay for huge savings!



This is my first upload in 4 years. If it goes well, I will probably make more skilling/hobby items for cheapo sims. I know there are lots of people out there with Dirty home sets they like to use, so hopefully I can make some stuff they'll appreciate, too. :D

Has been tested and has its own GUIDs. Will not replace the original train set and it does not function as a recolor.

UPDATED! I used the compressorizer on the file and made it significantly smaller. Redownload, please!
