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.

Greetings, fellow members of MTS2! Here is the 9th part of the large recoloring project called the "Dark" Collection. These are recolors of some of the lights in the game, and all are compatible with all EP's, and if you find a problem, please notify me at once! In this set are recolors for 5 Table lamps, 3 floor lamps, 5 ceiling lamps, 8 wall lapms, and two outdoor lamps.

Here are the previous parts of the Dark Collection if you want to see them:

Part 1: Bed Recolors

Part 2: Bed Sheet Recolors

Part 3: Seating Recolors

Part 4: Tables, Counters, Desk Recolors

Part 5: Wall Coverings

Part 6: Floor Coverings and Ground Coverings

Part 7: Appliance Recolors

Part 8: Plumbing Recolors

This set is part of the Horror Theme by Blakkkcat13. As with all recolors I make, you can upload these onto any lot you choose on any free site, so long as the credit is given to me, and that you provide a link to this page. You may not upload these/redistribute onto any paysite whatsoever. Coming next in the series is part 10, which is hobbies and misc. (Which includes stuff like the piano, bookshelf, dressers, etc.) I hope you enjoy them! And as always, happy simming!

Thank you for these, I've been looking for something more somber for my themed homes. Well done!

For a species that claims to be intellectually superior to all other life forms, humans do some stupid things.

Mmm.. I've been sticking only with ceiling lamps because I didn't like anything else. Thanks!

Garden of Shadows; for your goth side.

I've got this entire collection up-to-date. Tell me, would it possible for you to add a collection file for this set once its finished?

Like a flea circus at a dog show!

I just might do that when I'm done. (Good idea, but I'll have to figure out how to do that, shouldn't be too hard) I have yet to start on the next part, but I'm going to work on it tomorrow if nothing else comes up. I'm going to work on things from the hobbies section, and the misc. section will also be included, too. Although I might have to make a seperate set for the misc. if there are too many of either catagory.

UPDATE: I'm sorry it's been over a month since I released the last part, but I've been really busy. I promise I will have the next part out within the next couple of weeks. Go to my website for any additional updates.
