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 autumn's creators' theme is Back To School, and what is the greatest school in the history of all things school? You're right, obviously, and I compliment you on your fine taste in educational institutions.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, made legendary by J.K. Rowling in her Harry Potter books and films, has been already been built for TS2 by some incredibly gifted creators here at MTS (seriously, just type Hogwarts into the Search bar and prepare to goggle your face off). I can't even pretend to dream of one day being talented enough to consider taking on such a build. What I can do is make some recolours, so that's what I did. Maybe your sims are witches? Maybe they just like castles on the wall. Hopefully they'll enjoy these!

My dad is fond of telling me someting that his dad said to him, namely that anything that goes without saying goes even better with. So while it should go without saying, I'll go ahead and mention that I don't own Hogwarts Castle. I didn't make up Harry Potter, and I claim no ownership of the images I used for these edits.

I can not thank J.K. Rowling enough for the gift of Harry Potter. I'm also ridiculously grateful to Numenor, RGiles, Quaxi, and everyone who worked together to bring us CEP and SimPE.
