Thanks so much! I've been working on a completely Medieval-themed neighborhood, and I was really starting to get fed up with having wagons and horses walking on a concrete driveway (all the while, the roads in the game are now dirt-paved). Thanks again! :D

For those of you who don't see it in the list there is an easy way - just place the concrete one and then use the recolor-tool. That's how i do it all the time and it works fine ...

It's not a whole new object, with new GUID and such... It's just a simple recolor... Lol! (except it has no color )
It is not meant to show up in the catalogue... it's meant to show up under recolors for the concrete driveaway... as I always specified, so yes:

Recolours for building parts don't work in all cases like for objects - no choosing option for the colour in the detailed view in catalogue ... Those things where not really thought to be recoloured but the great modders in the sims community still found ways to do things like that.
That's the reason why not everyone can find it though. The same applies to those modular stairs etc and it works the same way i posted a little earlier.
