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.
*The FreeTime expansion is required for this item.

This is the new Mission-styled Centerpiece Entertainment Suite in two colors I find absolutely necessary: black and white.

I love to get thanks and comments.

As always, Maxis forgot matching recolors (and some deeper test, telling the truth). Thank you for doing these.

Thank you! I was wondering why they left out black and white. I use those colors in my game all the time.

Thankyou for putting these up!
Im not very fond of the Maxis versions, & black and white always suit better in my homes.

I just absolutely love the new television which came with FT, and I absolutely love your recolors for it! Now it will match better with all the other furniture.
Thank you so much

EXACTLY what I was looking for, hoping someone had made this exact thing! I'm playing John Mole in Desiderata Valley. I got him this entertainment center, but his house has a white/black scheme, so I really hoped someone made this recolor.

Thank you!!!!

I love those cabinets but couldn't really match any other furniture to them. Now that won't be a problem :D

Thanks so much.

I love this ET but I used to have one with all the items removed and usable as separate clutter items. I am not sure the recolors are linked to the original but if I find that it is....these will come in quite handy. Thanks!
