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'm currently in the middle of purging custom object meshes from my game because...Well, because I do that sometimes. When I do that sort of thing, I end up wanting to recolor/retexture Maxis meshes to make them look nicer. In this case, I messed around with the basegame's Durable Value Sofa, because I use it quite often and I've got completer pieces for it, too, so there's a whole set.

I gave it a plushier, more upholstery-looking texture and then slapped twelve Crayola crayon colors on it, and since I haven't been sharing much here at MTS because I've been lazy and just plopping stuff on my Simblr instead, I figured I'd put these up here for a change. So, here they be:

Nothing exciting but possibly useful to someone other than me. The files are clearly-named and pre-Compressorized. And that's about all I have to say about them.

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

Thank you so much! I stop playing for a while and come back to 'malm, yeti, lack" colors and whatnot. I'm a plain old person who likes those colors but I want just colors. Like the old days...on a planet far far away.
