This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Many users asked me if the Fiat Punto (Maxis add-on) was recolourable, and the answer was always "no"... until now!

This car is *the same* as the one published by Maxis (the original - not recolourable - has been put by Maxis in free download at theofficial UK site).
My *recolourable* version uses the same GUID (and the same original filename) as the Maxis one: therefore it will override (and hopefully overwrite) the original Maxis Punto; it would be pointless to have in the Downloads two identical car, one recolourable (mine) and one not (Maxis')...

This is the only really recolourable Punto existing (I've searched a lot, and I couldn't find any other one: If I have missed it, please let me know). I only could find an Orange Punto by Padu, that is actually a (bad) clone of the original, not recolourable car: DON'T USE IT: IT WILL BREAK THIS RECOLOURABLE VERSION. Hopefully, Padu will make a normal recolour package out of his beautiful orange texture.

This car can be recoloured with Object Workshop, like any other *custom* object; you can choose to recolour the external paint and/or the interior. If you upload your recolours to MTS2, be sure to put the link to THIS thread in the "Used Mesh" field.

The recolours created will not only apply to your car in "lot mode", but it will also be visible when in Neighborhood View!

CREDITS to Maxis for the original car; to Numenor (that's me! ) for the "recolourable" version.

License: though the original car is by Maxis, this special version was made by me, and therefore all my Copyright Agreement applies to it: you CAN create and post your recolours anywhere, or even sell it, but credits to me and a link to this thread must provided; you CAN't repost, clone or publish anywhere thise recolourable Punto (you can do whatever you like with the original Maxis Punto, of course); you CAN include this recolourable punto in your lots, as long as they are uploaded to free sites and credits are given to me (along with a link to this thread).

Thanks. I've been wanting some recolors of this car. I like the rainbow car. It would be cool for my teen girls to drive. Can you put it up? I also want a lime green and hot pink recolor if someone would do it.

Wow, I really love your rainbow car.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Very nice Numenor! But tell me, is that rainbow the default recolor? Not that it isn't nice, but since it overwrote the Maxis file, could you also provide one in the default blue? I really liked the color!

Also, I had that Padu version installed, but it never showed up in my game. Found it and removed it, however.

It *was* impossible, actually I had to heavily modify the package to make it compatible with the colour options...

Oh, my...! Why did I decide to upload the Limo and now this Punto? I'm overwhelmed by requests for car...! Folks, I'm not good enough at meshing, to create new cars, and anyway I'm too busy to take requests. Sorry

LOL! Of course, the Maxis default blue is the default colour for the recolourable version, too! In that screenshot, the rainbow recolour may look interesting, but it's a tiny graphics (128x128, while original texture is 512x512): I'd never choose to make it the default one .

You're the best Numenor! It's amazing all these Lost and Found objects you've been coming up with and now you've made this Maxis car recolorable. I didn't even know this car existed.

Actually, I don't know why Maxis only posted it on the UK site... Probably they thought that the Fiat Punto was not than known or appreciated in the States...

I guess that's probably true, after all, until this, I've never heard of it. But anyways, good job, Numenor, your hard work is always appreciated!

I live in the US, and I've seen cars similar to that. For one, the Fiat looks similar to the Ford Focus. I don't know why they wouldn't think we'd like it. It's actually my favorite car of all the Maxis made ones.

this was probablly already asked, but i'm too lazy to look around for it..

if you have it in your game already.. like on different lots, what will happen when it replaces it?

you're all a bunch of nerds like me <3

All the Punto in your game will be automatically replaced by the recolourable version, but you won't notic anything different: they all will still use the default blue colour. Install some recolours, and then try the Design Tool on the cars to give them another colour!
