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.

Hello again, simmers! This is the first part of many in a MASSIVE recoloring project I am working on called the "Dark" Collection. It will involve darkish, or black recolors of many objects in buy mode. And eventually, some in build mode, along with wallpapers and floors. Some of these recolors will be used in a house I am working on for the Horror Theme project. Click here to go to the horror theme page or click here to go to the main website for it These are a part of that project, contributed and made by myself. Since some of these beds are from the UNI expansion, UNI is required for some of them to work. Other than that, if you have any other EPs, they should work also, as long as UNI is installed. Please let me know if it's not. These are JUST the recolors for the beds, the bed sheets in the pics are in another thread. You can feel free to include these recolors in any lot submitted to MTS2, and any other lot on another free site can include them, too, so long as whatever free site you put it on, you must include credit to me, and a link to this page. NONE OF THESE RECOLORS CAN BE IN ANY LOT ON ANY PAY/SUBSCRIPTION SITE, PERIOD. Not even TSR! Soon to come are dark recolors of bed sheets, and then chairs, loveseats, and sofas. Hope you enjoy them, as a lot of time was put into these, because even though it's easy to recolor, it takes time when you recolor tons of objects! If you like them, feel free to hit the thank you button, and post any comments/thanks you have for these. Thanks, and happy simming!

The following pics show the whole set of beds, and then in seperate groups, to show you more detail.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

These are very cool, I can't wait to see them In-Game. These are perfect for my Vampire theme that runs most of my game. You did a great job, and all of the stuff looks amazingly cool and very Gothy, which is a definite plus. 5 stars. Thanks for sharing this collection with us.
