Hi yall! Well, I was dissapointed when I figured out that the piano that came with the original sims 2 only came in one color. I have decided to recolor the piano very nicely. My favorite is the black one, with the brown leather seat. THe white one has a shine to it and has a black leather seat. I used PhotoShop to add the gloss effect to the pianos to make them look more realistic. I hope you all enjoy, for I am the ultimate recolor man!

I like this! I've always wished for the piano to come in a different color. Nice job!

I don't do signatures...........

Default Problem with pianos
At the risk of sounding like a complete moron, I'm having trouble placing the pianos. By that, I mean that no matter where I move the piano (any color) it always remains red as if it were intersecting another item or something. I've had this problem with a few other downloaded objects before as well. I assume this isn't a problem with the items themselves, but perhaps there is a patch or program I need to install? I have the CEP installed, but maybe I did something wrong? Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm not sure what you've done when you've recoloured this, but the result is not a simple recolour. When I installed this my default piano shows up with a star in the catalog and the no autonomy hack I have installed stopped working.

The same problem with me the pianos won't place, and the other recolour and original have lost their ability to be placed as well. Very annoying.

If that's the case should pianos be recolored using the music instrument recolor hack?

Not sure who's it is, but they're on this site.

I have recolored the piano twice and have had no problems with either one of the recolors. You should be able to recolor them like everything else, without a problem. No hack should be necessary.
