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 is a set of texture replacements for the Smoogo Minima, the cheap hatchback car from Nightlife. It is divided into multiple sets, so you can keep any styles that you don't want to replace. Each set is in its own rar file. Note: the cars with plain paint jobs are not replaced.

With two exceptions, all replacements are from Michelle's set of car recolors. I have added lod90 textures, as I understand that they may affect how the cars appear in the neighborhood view. All textures are compressed with SimPE.

First, there's a replacement for the rusty car, using the gold texture from Michelle's set. The rusty texture also serves as the default source for the Smoogo's hubcaps, so using this replacement will make clean hubcaps the default. Click the button to see a before-and-after pic.
Note: The entry-level carpool and the delivery vehicles for pizza and Chinese food use a separate texture. For a clean replacement of that texture, see this thread by joninmobile/TheNinthWave.

Next, a replacement for the cars with flames on their hoods. The replacement textures are the turquoise, silver, and red from Michelle's set.

Now, a replacement for the cars with artwork. These are the ones Maxis calls "whitepsyco" and "orangeazteca". "Orangeazteca" is replaced with the green from Michelle's set. "Whitepsyco" is unusual because it has artwork and racing stripes, so it has two replacements. For one. I kept the stripes, but edited the "face" out and made a slight change to the racing stripes. The "no stripes" replacement for "whitepsyco" uses the yellow from Michelle's set.

Finally, a replacement for the racing stripes. This set has the replacement for "bluestripes", as well as the "no stripes" replacement for "whitepsyco". The replacement for "bluestripes" is my own work, based on the blue recolor from Michelle's set.

February 29, 2016: Non-default versions of the striped replacement for "whitepsyco" and the replacement for "bluestripes" are available in this thread. I also found that I'd overlooked a small part of the texture when making the replacement for "bluestripes"; I've updated the rar file with a fixed version.

Maxis, for the mesh
Michelle, for the replacement textures.
