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.

These are community lot versions of Michelle's recolors of the Neukum Systems Wall Speaker, the base game's wall-mounted stereo speaker for residential lots. This set recolors the Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Salsa, and Techno speakers from the base game and the "Happy Shopping" speaker from Open for Business. Each of those base game speakers uses one of the textures for the residential lot speaker, and the "Happy Shopping" speaker could have used one of them if Maxis had thought of it. Since zeroth's "because Maxis forgot" speakers for the Jazz and College Rock stations from University are cloned from base game speakers, I did them, too. (Note: zeroth's speakers are not included. If you don't already have them, you will need to get them from his original threads.)

While that's nearly 200 files, they all pull their textures from Michelle's recolors, so they are very small. To make it easier to manage the packages, I organized the rar files into three groups of four, according to both required EP and palette. So, the AL Wood, Goth, LACK, and MALM recolors each have three rar files, and recolors for the BG, Uni, and OFB speakers each have four. Remember, in order to use the recolors for a palette, you must have Michelle's recolors for that palette; get them HERE.

The University recolors require Nightlife or later as well as University. This is because Nightlife introduced new "station ID" values for the Jazz and College Rock stations, and zeroth's speakers use these values. Recolors for the Shopping speaker require Open for Business. Recolors for the Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Salsa, and Techno speakers do not require any EPs or SPs.

Additional Credits:
Maxis, for the original objects.
Michelle, for the residential speaker recolors
zeroth for making speakers for the Uni radio stations.
