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.
Since my Yahoo group is no more I've decided to upload all my stuff here.

Here is the first set.

A huge number of OFB craft-able flowers. These will only appear in the flower crafting station unless you have a hacked collection, then they may be used as a normal deco flower.

Here is a link to that collection made by Windkeeper

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

Beautiful! Thank you so much. Just yesterday I was grumbling about how few color choices there are for the flowers. Not anymore though!

Wow, so many possibilities! Thank you.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

Very nicely done. If I knew how to recolour the craftable items I would make some of some of the toys and robots.

SimVeggie, I was a member of your Yahoo Group and I love your work! I know I had the "hack" before to be able to just decorate with them without having to craft them, but for some reason they aren't showing up now - do you know by any chance if it is due to Seasons? Also, does anyone know where I can get a hack to make them show up as just buyable again, since I don't know why they aren't. Its possible that I just didn't put the file back after I installed Seasons - I have been playing kind of "vanilla" since I put Seasons in, I am only using about a quarter of my downloads right now - the ones I absolutely can't play without (like SimVeggie's plants lol).

Any help is much appreciated!!

Thank you so much for sharing your items here! These OFB flowers are great!

I wish more creators would be as generous as you, and some others, and place there items here when they decide to close down their own sites. Thank You!
