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.

Hi, I made this invisible magisplay tray. I know this tray was available here before. This tray was gone *poof*. ariffrazalin was looking for this download tray zip in sims 2 community forum. I told ariffrazalin that this tray was gone from mod the sims 2 and I was glad to make this tray available. I hope you like this tray. There is an invisible magisplay tray on the left side and a maxis magisplay tray on the right side on this counter in this picture.

I have seen a few requests for this for different expansions without open for business but nobody had not done it yet.

Sorry I have the same problem and strangely enough I downloaded mine today but it doesn't work.
I tried everything that was posted before today in the messages in here but I simply can't find the downlaod like that.

Sorry for the trouble.

Can you see your CEP package "EnableColorOptionsGMND.package" in your download folder? and enable your custom content in your game? A few minutes ago, I download the CEP windows zip (windows manual install) and put "EnableColorOptionsGMND.package" into my download folder then I downloaded my invisible magisplay tray and extracted it into my download folder. In my game, I clicked on the maxis shelf icon and clicked on the maxis magisplay tray and it pops up an invisible recolor with a custom star.

Edit: you can click on CEP automatic installer. You don't have to download the CEP windows manual installer.

Well I used Q-Xpress installer from modthesims2.com and installated it in my game like that.
I actually always use that tool and it works good enough for me.
But if I need to use another program then please tell me wich one.
Because I really dont see in my folder 'EnableColorOptionsGMND.package'

Thanks for helping me.

This flexible display case is a flat mat that sits atop any surface or on the floor. It can handle a few small items or one medium-sized items such as a computer.

Edit: check this link for another use of this display case.

Thanks for this pfish! I use it ALL the time. You are the RULER of invisible items and I am the Invisible Queen User!

BTW - Did you know this tray won't zip with Residential lots? I don't know about Commercial lots yet.

Take care and thanks for all your creations.

Well, well... It seems like many different people are having problems with this item. For me it started once I got newer expansions for the game. I know that this item does work, but I cannot seem to get it to work again. I believe it has something to do with the new expansions; like Bon Voyage...

I had problems with it too, but now I just downloaded the newest CEP. Now I'll try in the game. If the recolour keeps not appearing, then I'll ask for help.
Thank you.

I used to have this, it's genius. But now, after Free Time and the latest stuff packs, I redownloaded it and it doesn't show up anymore in the game. My CEP is the latest one. What's wrong with me?? -.-

I'm having the same problem, I have the newest CEP and OFB, I have all EPs up to Seasons. It doesn't show up, only the default Maxis one, with no options.

Hey, cool object!

But is it true that if you leave the lot with a Sim sitting on the tray, the lot will lock up and freeze?

If it is...... then can I still leave normal objects on the tray when I leave the lot? I know, stupid question, but I was wondering....
