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.

I realised today that the dearth of vintage posters in-game annoys me a bit. So I set out to experiment with some prints I came across. The decent, I think. My first try, anyhow. =) Err... the screenshots are not that great, but trust me, if you think the paintings look reasonably okay here, they look good in-game.

**EDIT** The poster with the woman is a Art Nouveau illustration by Alphonse Mucha, advertising Job Cigarettes. Thanks to HystericalParoxysm for the heads - up!

I really hope you like them. If you don't, well let me know then too! I might make some more of these, so feedback is really needed. ^.^

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

I just can't get this to download - every time I do I get a load of text all over the screen and nothing else

Tramen - You're likely using a Mac and not using Safari. Try switching browsers, and search for "mac safari" here for more info.

Omer.Z. - Very cute - but you might find more people would be interested if you gave them a bit more accurate description and keywords. The poster with the woman is a Art Nouveau illustration by Alphonse Mucha, advertising Job Cigarettes. The other I don't know the artist, but you could use "Art Deco" as a keyword for it and be quite accurate.

I get the same error as Tramen. I'm using the latest version of firefox (it updated itself 2-3 days ago) & I'm on a PC.

Maybe the file is corrupt?

I've actually got the same configuration as rhldavies - firefox and on a laptop. But I still get text, instead of the expected 505 error.

thank you all so much for the feedback! =D

HystericalParoxysm - thanks for the advice! I'll remember being more accurate. I did know it was from Alphonse Mucha, and art noveau. *haha* Well, first upload so forgive me.

Tramen and rhldalves - I also have the latest firefox and I downloaded the file again just now to make sure.... but it opens up fine. =S

Amazing, an asset I can use for my sim home modeled after my real home. I just had to download because my mother has the Art Nouveau painting on the wall in our hallway, I see it everytime I leave my room

Ok, I tried to download this again using firefox on my PC and it still didn't work.

However, I decided to try using Internet Explorer 7 on my PC and the file downloaded with no corruptions.

Hope you have some luck with this Tramen.
