This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Here is the place that I invite everyone to post recolors of Brassex's wonderful non-roof meshes.

This includes his Medieval Fair pieces, the triple arch from his Castle Roof pieces and more set, the Monastic Mountain set and any new pieces that I enable for recoloring.

For recolors of these objects to work you must have the original meshes. Please download them from the following links:
Monastic Mountain set
Castle rooftops and more
Medieval fairgrounds set

I will indicate which set each piece is from.

First off. I was asked to attempt a wire wrapped version of the Barricade included in the Madieval Fair set. Here is a picture of the result. It's kinda trashy, say maybe it looks like someone tried to set it on fire a couple of times? Anyhow I offer it for download in its own rar file.
here's a picture:

Next...Brassex wanted the dragon on his dragon arch from the Monastic Mountain set to be shiny. So I thought, "hey it might be cool to have all the dragons matching" the end result was that I did the dragon on the Dragon Roof, the dragon on the Dragon Arch, and the dragon head on the dragon gate in the following colors: Green, Greenish yellow, and red. Then I took it a step father and made matching gold recolors for the Dragon arch and the Dragon gate to match the existing gold default of the Dragon roof.
Confused yet? Maybe a picture will help:

As always, I would love to do more. If you have a suggestion feel free to post it and I'll try to do it. Thank Brassex everyone for making such cool things! :D

I got a request for some additional signs. these say "Clothier" and "Dry Goods" I tryed to make them simple and clear yet fancy. If they suck I'll do 'em again

Also..the register that comes with the game just does not hack it in a medieval neighborhood...I did a wood recolor. I'm placing it here because I used Brassex's wood graphic so in effect it's something of his applied to a maxis mesh. As you can see the banners look pretty good from a distance, but become grainy close up. There's not much I can do about that because of the way the graphics are used on the banner. I hope they are okay...

Again you need the meshes for the Medieval fair for these to work. The link is in the first post.

humybyrd, find me a sample and I'll do it. However, I will need a sample of exactly what you are looking for.

K I will look for one. Thank you.

After a long search these are the only photos I could come up with. My baase camp is set in the desert terrain so I would prefer it to be the brown sand color but just having it any color would be great. Thanks again.

:sorry: Oh... it took me nearly five months to get back to you. I'm so sorry it took so long. To make it up to you I have 6 tent recolors. Hope you like them. They are camo but not the netting. I just couldn't get the detail to look right.

But I hope you like them anyhow. Again you must have Brassex's Medieval faire meshes for this to show up in your game. there's a link in the first post...
