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.
I decided to continue with the medieval-ish things I've been recoloring and decided to include a nice "public market" looking set.

Set includes straight and corner produce bins with a worn wood crate look. Each comes with a few different items for display: The straight bin comes with potatoes & potato sacks, and cheese & rice sacks. The curved corner bin comes with potatoes & potato sacks, cabbages & flour sacks, and rutabagas & onion sacks.

Known problem: the default color for the bins duplicated with each recolor of contents, thus making a few redundant bins. Other than redundancy it appears to not affect the game.
Style: Antique
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

tihs si great but it' has an anacronism (not to critisize, i love thia!, but i'm sure is not noticeable)
These bags have potatoes. If you use this for a medieval (european) village....this could'nt happend. Potatoes were brough from america
but anyways thank you!

Potatoes where brought to England from the Americas during the 1500s or during the Renaissance which still fits into that middle ages theme so no worries. Anyway, good job this should be quite useful. ^_^

I know that and you know that. But I did say "-ish" at the end of medieval. So that totally absolves me of ANY anachronism. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :P

hey I was the one that was kind of defending your story because of what Marisa said, that's why I stated that the Renaissance and the middle ages pretty much cover the same theme (err... in other words atleast). so as I said before no worries

Never a problem, don't care, love the veggies and it works for me!!!!!

When in doubt, use clean installer

According to Wikipedia, the potato originated in South America. It was introduced to Europe by Spanish conquistadors and by Elizabethan times was spread throughout Europe.

Therefore: originated in the Americas, but still period.
