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 made a nice little sports field for my sims, with a set of bleachers for the onlookers. Then I went to add suitable seating...nothing! Not even in my CC collection.

The Molded Sectional Sofa from NL has an okay shape, but comes in very unrealistic colours for something I am going to leave out in all weathers. I looked for recolours, and they are very few and far between. Nothing outdoorsy at all, although I saw a number of sports lots that have been made using them. All very lurid in the seating department.

WCIF got me nothing, so in the end I made my own, and here they are!

There is a reddish-rust version and a greyish one. The grey one has cracked enamel on the seatpad and back.

The sectional sofa comes from Nightlife, so that EP is required. I believe that is all, although I made and tested the recolours in a game up to Freetime.

You are free to use these recolours as you wish.
Credit is always nice, I like to see people enjoying my stuff.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to Plasticbox for sharing her template for this sofa. Having that did make it easier to locate which bit belonged where.

General thanks to the creators (and updaters!) of SimPE, and of the various tutorials I have used while learning to recolour. This is only my third or fourth attempt, I'm pretty new at it.
