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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are some more piano recolors. These are made from the wood of the scraps ranch tables and the double helix bookcases. If you would like a piano to match something specific let me know I'll try to get it done.
Hope you like

MTS2 let this go with more than the allowed number of pics. Thanks!
I reduced 4 of them into one to comply with the rules.

I would, but I only have the base game loaded. I'm almost always disappointed in the expansions. Most of what I do is for the base game. It's what i play most.

Thank you, I hated having always the same piano in every Sim house, it was kinda freaky. These are very natural and nice looking, I will use them a lot!

Nice work. I hate cherry furniture, so that piano was often left out of my sims' homes.

I love them!

I might one day finish my Zanes Hollow project, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Until then, you can see what I'm up to on my Simblr!

I really can't think of a reason. The recolors are of the Piano from the base game, so they should show up. Maybe someone else can help. Have you checked the forums on custom content not showing up in your game?
