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.

Hi, I made this invisible magisplay tray. I know this tray was available here before. This tray was gone *poof*. ariffrazalin was looking for this download tray zip in sims 2 community forum. I told ariffrazalin that this tray was gone from mod the sims 2 and I was glad to make this tray available. I hope you like this tray. There is an invisible magisplay tray on the left side and a maxis magisplay tray on the right side on this counter in this picture.

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

It came with the game. If you can't find it in your inventory, I think this candle came from Holiday Pack but not sure.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Did you download CEP?

Edit: Do you have open for business expansion?

Default How to recolor Magisplay?
Hi. I noticed you were able to create an invisible/recolor of the Magisplay. I have SimPE and have not been able to recolor the thing. It doesn't list a "texture image". How did you do it?

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!

All I did is change "stdMatAlphaTestEnbled" to 1 in material definition and this magisplay became invisible.

Edit: It was either 0 or 1. I didn't remember which is that.

That is weird. I redownload this invisible magisplay today. I checked and It is in my game inventory. It is in shelves. Did you click on the maxis magisplay and did it pop up an invisible magisplay recolor in your game?

No it does not come up at all. only the original Magisplay comes up. I have downloaded and installed it several times and it won't work.

Really? What version of CEP did you download?

Edit: Did you unzip your download file?

I seem to be having the same problem diesel2370 has. D: I redownloaded it twice and it won't show up at all. I have the latest CEP and every expansion, so I have no idea what the problem is...

aurora_x, Sorry for the delay to answer your problem. I redownload this and it showed up finely in my game. I download the last CEP file-window manual zip. I took a picture of my download folder. Does my CEP download package look like your CEP download in your download folder?

Funny this came up, I came here looking to re-download the tray because it's not showing up in my game either.

This item is for open for business expansion. I see that you don't have open for business in your profile.

Edit: I redownloaded this magisplay tray in my game. It showed up fine in my game. Did you download the CEP?

Is it possible for someone to make a version that does not require OFB? That would be sooo helpful...

To you who had problems with this not showing up in game - well, I had too! I tried a few things but nothing helped, and finally I downloaded and installed the latest CEP though I was sure I already had done so...

And, well, after that the tray recolour showed up ! Either my memory failed me completely, or the game just played tricks with me...

Anyway, thanks for this, pfish. So simple, yet an absolute must-have!
