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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My very first upload! Gah, the jitters!! >_<

This kitchen started with a swatch of fabric (Clay Floral Flourish, by Waverly) that I fell in love with around a year and a half ago, and even though I kept being pulled away by various obsessions-of-the-moment, I kept coming back this set. I still have a boatload of items on my to-do list in these colours--I may never actually "finish" it all--but with the kitchen and dining pieces rounded out it's time to pull the trigger on my first submission to Mod The Sims!


Maxis Recolours, Base Game & EPs
  • The main pieces in this set are the Impossible Mission Counter/Island (OFB) and the Hotel Round Table and Chairs from Bon Voyage, but because I wanted to make the set base game friendly too, I included complimentary textures for the "Epikouros" Sleek Cuisine Counter/Island, Luxiary table, and Oaktowne East Side chairs, as well as Regulars Only barstools to use with the islands.
  • Base game decorations include textures for the fishtank, fruit bowl, and fruitless fig, plus three sets of curtains (Funky/Loft)
  • Other decorations include oven mitts, canisters, and utensils from Seasons and a hanging plant (NL). The wooden lights are BV, as are the recolours of the travel poster (two pictures, taken in-game, of the small wishing shrine).

For those who play base game only, I have uploaded those files together in one .RAR. Pieces from the EPs are in a second .RAR, so please grab both if you want the entire set! Both have a copy of the Collection file, just in case.


Echo's Rug Recolours

The one non-EA/Maxis mesh I used in this set is Echo's Rug. My recolours are of the 3x4, which also apply to the smaller sizes. These should require base game, plus NL or a later EP (and are included in the EPs .RAR).


Build Mode

I also made just... just entirely too many walls and floors. I started, and then suddenly it was three days later, and apparently I made all the things. So, 21 floors and 35 walls, and I added a separate collection file for them because I'm super-crossing-fingers-hoping to manage another room or two of Claybee recolours...if only to justify all the walls that happened. Wish me luck! And please, please enjoy!

UPDATE: Hah. A couple more rooms to justify making these walls and floors? I've added a Claybee Living Room, Bedroom, Nursery, and Bath, and there are now over 140 walls and floors. Newest version of the build collection is posted with the Bathroom...
