This collection includes several items each from different expansions recolored to look more appropriate for a themed game. Accessories are not found in the buy mode catalog, but show up randomly in the game when a Sim performs various actions. They aren't normally recolor-able, so these are Default Replacements. By putting these files in your Sims2->Downloads folder these items will automatically appear recolored in your game. To return to the original game accessories, simply remove my files.

This collection includes:

University Accessories
  • Pillows - Was boring plain fabrics, now two types of embroidered patterned fabric and two types of linen.
  • Soap Box - Was bright pink, now is parchment style box with actual period engraving image of medieval bath time.
  • Water Balloon - Was various bright colors, now plain pigs bladder.

Open for Business Accessories
  • Barber's Powder Puff - Was bright blue, now brown burlap.
  • Barber's Scissors - Was black and bright shiny metal, now slightly rusty iron.

Pets Accessories
  • Food Boxes - All three types of food boxes (Cat/Dog, Bird, Hamster) were modern style colors, now they are wooden boxes with engraved pet images and simlish text.
  • Feather Toy - Was bright blue and white plastic, now wooden stick with peacock feather.
  • Litter Scoop - Was bright purple plastic, now old wooden shovel.
  • Litter Bag - Modern paper bag, now plain parchment bag.

Apartment Life Accessories
  • Toothbrush - Was blue plastic, now wooden with natural bristles.
  • Toothpaste Tube - Was modern colored, now is neutral with parchment label.
  • Face Wash Bottle - Was bright blue, now dark apothecary bottle with parchment label.

These are brilliant! I love seeing this whole Sims 2 Medieval vision come to life in this way with several people in the community devoted to bringing things to life. David and I were just playfully joking about how the new Maxis/EA Medieval stand-alone game is going to pale in comparison to what everyone is pulling together to bring the Sims 2 Medieval world to fruition! I get so excited when I go to Hat's site, find some medievalish object in my random searches, see what David is creating or when you upload something new! It's so wonderful watching things unfold and fit and make sense! Thanks again.

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Hi! sunni,
Happy Birthday, BTW!!!!
I am so hooked on medieval now. It is such fun to find ways to make the modern simmies try to conform to a medieval lifestyle.
Your work has added even more pleasure to my game.
I got a funny screenshot of a jet buzzing my medieval hut. I will post it on SimSafe2 if you want to check it out. I was re-organizing my dl folders and joninmobile's jets and spaceships got back into my neighborhood. lol
Thanks, so much again for all your fantastic work!
Hugs from Nonni

Oh my goodness, recolor treasures! This is so perfect. It's so annoying to have a nice, medieval hood with most of the furniture right, and then plasticy green baby bottles and tooth brushes. Thank you so much for fixing that!
