This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
UPDATED (9-12-2014) OBJECT NOW HAVE 2 COLOR CHANNELS

I have always liked the painting How Eloquent by Bartholomew Dade and have wished it was color enabled so that recolors can be made. As of the last I checked it still existed as NOT RECOLOURABLE in the list of CEP enabled objects. Though I liked the object, its base color was somehow boring to me and more so, it was frustrating been restricted to just one color . But then I had no choice but to use it as it is

The only solution I had to this was to make it color enabled and so I did.


In addition to the new base color, 7 recolors are also included



The Color Channels
The frame and the painting can now be recolored seperately


Also I remapped the mesh and made it a default replacement of the Maxi object meaning it will replace the original object in game since the Guid is the same.

Note
To be able to use the original default color of the main How Eloquent, you have to delete the package file How Eloquent Default Override from your downloads folder


Polygon Counts:
Facecount-948
Vertexcount-1010

With all the frame recolours I've been doing lately I had actually added this to my list of things to do, thank you so much, something else I can cross off my list, yipee!!!
Is the painting recolourable as well? Did you make it 1 subset or 2?

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their work...click on it.

I made everything a one set color object. But I guess I can make the painting a different subset from the frame

Edited

Its now 2 subsets

Well, thanks. I wanted to recolour this myself a while back for a project I'm doing and couldn't - I did wonder why Numenor didn't get around to adding it. Was there a particular issue I wonder? Anyway, I eventually compromised with a CC picture but this is great if I want to do that again.
