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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Already tired of your boring concrete or brick driveways and its extensions? Well, fear no more... You will have endless possibilitties with this revolutionary invisible driveway... Now you can just place whatever floor tiles you please under your driveway, voilà... Be unique, make your neighbours droll...

Find it under recolors for the concrete driveway/extension

Tip: use together with the cheat "boolprop locktiles [true/false]" to place floors outside the boundaries (on the street).

I love the idea!! But I downloaded it.....and it doesn't show up in my game!! I'm so sad, I wish I knew why it doesn't show up. I go to the garage section and then to the driveway part...and nothing, just the same old cheap, ugly, boring maxis created ones!!

Well, I have it installed, and it doesnt show up either under building items or recolors. I DO have Pets... but I am wondering if it has to do with the CEP version used when it was created originally?

Anyone have any ideas on how I can access this little gem of a recolor, (cause maxis colors suck)

** just my 2 cents, ignore it if you wish, rant if you must, but please use the common sense one assumes you were born with **

Did you check under driveways?
[hmm, stupid question knowing me]
Because thats where it is located for me anyway.

I had to download the CEP for it to work.



Also, do I need permission to use this before I upload my lot to the site?
Just making sure.
Let me know.

This Is A Very Useful Recolour...

Yes I agree as well, quite shallow and pedantic....

You should make it as a driveway for itself, not replace the original one.

Don't hate me for my negative personality... It's in the blood.

Last time i downloaded this it made everything in my game glitch with a whole bunch of different colors. Do you know why? Was it my graffix card? a bug? What? I would appreciate it if you answer me back. THANK YOU

Yeah I can download any things like win rar and zip files. Cuz now I have a new computer with a better graffix card I'm just afraid to download it because it might mess my new computer up!!
