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.
Here are 5 new recolours I made for the electric guitar that comes with University. Hope you enjoy them
(The silver recolour is excelent as a base for creating new metallic colours)

***TIP***: many of you say they don't appear in your game and I think its because to see a guitar recolour you have to buy the guitar first and then recolour it with the proper tool in the game, you can't buy it recoloured (I don't know why, it's probably a bug)

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

I've been waiting for these. The Maxis recolours don't look that realistic...... that is, except the Tobbacco Sunburst.
