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.

I'm getting ready to create some business / community lots for my Simstones and needed more appropriate looking shelves so I recolored some of the OFB shelves.

Style: Retro
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

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

Good we couldn't forget about the Business... I wonder who is going to recolor and or retexture the Bowling Alley.. Since this was Fred and Barney favorite pastime.

Thank you for sharing,

Thanks these look great!

* If you download my sets please note that I usually include a collection file. Please do not pm me that you can not find something from my sets if you have not yet installed the collection file. I do it for a reason. Thanks!
