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.

The only items in this set that require Night Life are the Night Life tables.

Just a quick few words. I know that this is a winter set, but it is so hot where I am right now that I welcome anything winter. I could not wait to get this set finished and out to you because I love the default override china so much from this set and I want to actually get to play with it in my game instead of just doing QC on it. I hope that you love it as much as I do.


A quick tip about using default overrides: This works out well for me, so I thought that I would share (most of you probably already do something similar). I create a Default Override folder under Downloads in the game. I put all of my default override files (genetics, china, etc.) in this folder so that it is easy to find for one thing, but it is also easy to change the extensions when I want to have a different file in my game. For instance, I am going to start using the WWB china in my game and so I will set my WG china's extension to .off. Quick and easy since they are all in the same place.


Set contains:
2 baby highchairs (Maxis wood and my dark wood)
2 Ergo Supreme dining chairs (solid and print)
2 Bon Appetite dining chairs (solid and print)
3 styles of ygg's beautiful tables
1 Designer Chandelier
1 style of China and 1 medium wood recolor (matches Maxis wood) for Gromit's beautiful Welsh Dresser

Separate downloads:
2 styles of Night Life's Upscale Dining tables and wood base recolor (EP2 Only)

1 WWB Default Override Dinnerware - includes serving dishes, dinner plates, dessert plates, baby bowl, glass, and dishes for both the cheap and expensive dishwasher.

Make sure you have the meshes for the Welsh Dresser and Yggdrasil's tables.

Links to meshes:
I have included the mesh to Yggdrasil's tables in the downloads below because the link at Sims 2 Friends is not working.. (Updated 13 June 13)
Welsh Dresser by Gromit

A special thanks to Gromit, Yggdrasil, creators of Simpe, and creators of the CEP.

My recolor files are always "File-Share-Friendly" and must remain FREE for download (that means if they are included in a house that is posted on a paysite, then the house itself has to be a free download).

Join my updates notification list by either e-mail or PM.

And last but not least, I hope that you like the set. Enjoy!

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

Looks very good, but there seems to be something wrong with the dber_WedgewoodWinterBirds_DiningSet_0706.zip. When trying to unzip it I'm told the archive is "either in unknown format or damaged". Redownloading doesn't help. The other two zips are fine, though.

I just downloaded and unzipped the file and I had no problem with it, so I had my hubby try it and he had no problem either. He used both WinRAR and WinZIP to unzip it. I do not know what to tell you other than to try it again. Maybe something hiccupped when you were downloading.

Have a bright platinum diamond day!

You're right, simdebster. It was my copy that was corrupted. Should have restarted the computer or cleared out some temp folder, and then redownloaded instead of complaining . But the set is still looking very lovely!

I just love both this and your wine set. They are beautiful. I wanted to mention something else. So many people say this requires Nightlife or Open For Buisness and exclude everyone else from having the items. I am so impressed that you took the time to actually SEPERATE- Nightlife!!

You've done a fabulous job on this. Recolouring is not necessarily an easy or short task - a good recolour takes time, effort and talent. You have definitely have talent, and taken the time and effort to make a great recolour.

Thankyou!

This is so beautiful!!! I LOVE the default override china! As I have different themed neighbourhoods I will use this for my ... err... country-upscale-something one ;-)) I use your wine default china too in a different neighbourhood (from the other thread)!
This way I can have different china types in my game (I change the download folder for each neighbourhood), that's sooo cool!
