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.

I downloaded this long ago, and have it in use on several of my lots. I have some invisible and/or transparent objects in my game, but this one is one where an invisible recolor is truly *USEFUL*. Adding it to my Favorites list. .

Thank you so much for making the invisible driveway, my sims love it very much, they want to know if you could do the same for the helicopter landing pad? Make it invisible as well, we would appreciate very much. Thanks again. Elise

Is this compatible with the maxis non-Nightlife driveway? I'm a loser and I don't have nightlife, but I really hate the maxis driveway :/

This is an extremely useful tool in my game. Between floor tiles and terrain paint, I can make any kind of driveway I please, from science fiction to post apocalypse and even medieval! Thank you so very much for taking the time to make an invisible recolor!
