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

The others are here:

1. Final Fantasy Paintings I: X & X-2
2. Final Fantasy Paintings II: Dirge of Cerberus

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

Info and Credits

Artwork adapted from official Square Enix art by Tetsuya Nomura and CG images of some characters. Copyright Square Enix.

All meshes are Maxis'. I am not 100% sure, but I think "Surfing With The Alien" may require Uni. It is not in my Uni collection, though. Can anyone without Uni check and let me know? Thanks.

I made the portraits to look like fanart your sim may have done themselves. I hope. :-)

Meshes used:


1. Concept Art Pineapple Requires Nightlife
2. Ifrit Pineapple Requires Nightlife

Please note I did "idiot" again and switched the numbers in the pic.


1. The Girls of FFVIII Lady In Red
2. Squall & Rinoa The Meaning of Fruit
3. Quistus Surfing With The Alien
4. Zell Surfing With The Alien
5. Seifer Surfing WithThe Alien
6. Selphie Civic Idol Requires University
7. Squall A-Stroke Requires Nightlife
8. Irvine A-Stroke Requires Nightlife
9. Rinoa A-Stroke Requires Nightlife


1. Seifer Handle & Spout
2. The Girls and Squall Marketing Print
3. The Boyz 4 Vegetables Requires Nightlife

As always, please don't upload to partial or full paysites.

Do the painting with the 4 vegetables come with Nightlife? I'm searching for a mesh like these, but the only EP I don't have is Nightlife (also no mini-EPs). I've installed OfB about a week ago, may I didn't recognised the "4 vegetables", but don't really think so. The "marketing print" and the one, which looks like a pink lightning must be Nightlife paintings too.

Would be nice if you also say that this EP (or mini-EP) is required for your recolours.

bye smelly

PS.: And I also think that "surfing with the alien" comes with Uni. Just look into the University-folder in your collection-folder.

Hi MrsSmellymaus,

I'm never sure which paintings come with which EP, and I tend to delete the Maxi's collections (wish I hadn't now!). I did mention that Surfing may require Uni, though. I'll look into it and update the post when I know for sure. Thanks for pointing that out.

Edit: I still had my Uni and Nightlife collections *gasp* and Surfing wasn't in it, so it may, in fact, be base game. Marketing Print is also not in any collections files, I *think* it's base-game.

Ini-chan, FFVII is on the list, next in fact . Meanwhile, though, Squall117 has already done some, if you don't have them already (I found out after I started to do these). http://modthesims2.com/download.php?u=306726&showType=1

Nice work, I love the posters and the photos.
Btw, You can check the lists that come with the CEP for EP compatibility.
Thanks a lot for this

Thanks for that Squall. I guess I should actually read all of the documentation, eh.
