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 second in my series of Final Fantasy-themed paintings, posters and recolours.

The others are here:

1. Final Fantasy Paintings I: X & X-2
3. Final Fantasy Paintings III: FF VIII Photos & Portraits

Tested ok on my system -- I have all of the EPs up to Pets (patched). CEP required.
