Hello! Well i figured out how to recolour already and as a simple start i did some pawprint recolours of the cheap pet pillow, I tried to pick several bright general colours as it would be impossible to cater for every colour liked but its a start! Hope you like them, they were fun to make.

I've included a pic of all of the colours included, and one pic of a single bed so you can see the quality of them when properly in the game as the pic of all of them didn't come out very well..

As usual please don't reupload to the exchange or anywhere else, you may recolour them to your own taste but if you upload the recolours link back to this thread to credit me.

Other than that i hope your doggy's enjoy them =D

Edit:sorry i'd uploaded the wrong pic, it was missing the orange recolour! All corrected now

Default another save from another "OMG, WTF MAXIS!?!"
What were they thinking??? Yet another instance where I think they decided that since they already have us all addicted to their "drug" they would get lazy and just do a few patterns. Either that or they let their kids pick the patterns for the beds/collars.

ROCK ON... Your recolors are excellent and will now actually MATCH some room furnishings.


They must have taken my marbles away. :(

thanks they are really awesome ^^
but when I put them in my game... when they got dirty, they reverted back to the old maxis colours :s and then when cleaned did not changed thus I have to go and change the colour again ingame anyway to fix that?

Oh i dunno why you got that! In my game they look as i meant them to look when they get dirty and work fine.. If anyone else gets this problem let me know, but as to fixing it for you i'm not sure what error i'd be looking for, doesnt help that i don't get that problem personally myself, i'll see if i can get some advice from someone else who had done recolours
Oh also what colour one was it you had the problem with? Can you check if it happens with other colours?

Just keep swimming..

It happens with all the colours :s
I thought maybe I had the wrong CEP in the game or something an I updated that... But, still happens :'( Really annoyin' cos when I have to clean them I got use that restyle/colour tool thing an' change 'em back again!

I was glad to see the new pattern and pretty recolors when I found this down load. I too have the changing color problem when they get dirty, and agree it's a bit of a nuisance to change them back, been leaving them "black" lately. I hope you find the problem either way I love the colors and your efforts.

thanks so much for these! my real-life labrador has a dark blue pet pillow with white paw prints all over it, so i'm thrilled someone's made sims pet beds that are so similar
