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.

Hi, I made this invisible burglar alarm. I had this burglar alarm to replace maxis original burglar alarm because a cloned burglar alarm would not work at all. That was why my invisible burglar alarm replaced the maxis original white burglar alarm so my burglar alarm can be 100% invisible and can work to alert for burglars. I repeat **WARNING - MY BURGLAR ALARM REPLACES MAXIS ORIGINAL BURGLAR ALARM**. Sorry about big caps. Burglar alarm recolors do work but they look weird with green light off but can set alarm off and turn red light on with my invisible alarm in inventory. So it may be best for you to decide to use recolors or use this invisible alarm alone in your game. It would be fine if you like both recolors and my invisible alarm. If you want to delete this invisible alarm, delete it in your download folder because it is hard to delete this alarm in your game. If you can't stand the sight of maxis ugly white burglar alarm, then this invisible alarm is for you. I hope you enjoy my alarm. Required CEP.

That is weird. My burglars did come every time. I used a burglar hack to test my burglar alarm. Maybe your burglar is very smart.

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.

At first, I was reluctant to download this because I don't like replacing original Maxis items. Then I thought how butt ugly the original is, so I downloaded it anyways!

Thanks so much now all i need is an invisible toilet to move under all those stupid decorative ones people like Birgit and Tollis make. Why make a set with a DECO bidet in all these colors and no freakin' toilet? I love all of you who make invisible objects, Thanks

Thank you. :D

I'm guessing it's difficult to come up with inventive ways to take descriptive snapshots of invisible items. This one takes the cake! It must have taken a long time... waiting for your burglar. ;)

If I delete it, will the original visible alarm still be there?
