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.

As requested by wandersfar.

I was asked by wandersfar to recolours the musical instruments in AL wood, LACK and MALM colours. I think I managed to get all the musical instruments in game, some instruments are done in wood others are lacquered...no floodfill was used in these recolours. Check the Related Downloads for links to my other Chimeway Daughters Saloon Piano and Bosenklavier Model B recolours.

Known fault: There is a fine line down the centre of the panels on the Chimeway Daughters Saloon Piano, this is a mapping error by Maxis and can not be fixed with recolours.

I wasn't sure how to package them, in the end I decided to go by AL Wood, LACK and MALM, so please only use the musical instrument if you have the correct EP installed. These are not all base game compatible, refer to the list below to see which EP is required for each instrument!
