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.
A small collection of (simplified) dutch still lifes, made with in-game fruits and flowers. This kind of thing doesn't seem to exist yet (not freely available at least), so I gave in and made it myself. All of these use base game meshes.

"Red vs. Blue" Oil Portrait (120§)

"Red vs. Blue" Oil Portrait (120§)

"In the Beginning" (600§)

"Arghist Soldier" (2.000§)

The one not pictured here is for "Rainy Day Main Street" (350§). Please note that these screenshots are taken outdoors -- indoors, the grain in the background will not be so visible. I used some of craftable flower recolours by macarossi and simveggie for this, everything else is Maxis.

You can do whatever you want with this. Please link back to this thread when reuploading. Please respect that I don't do requests.

After I installed CEP, the paintings showed up in my game as additional "colors" of RedvsBlue and Arghist.
