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.
INFO UPDATE 2008-04-19
I just realized some of the wallpapers came with expansion packs. I've updated the info about which ones it is.

This time I've made recolors matching Maxis bricks. Enjoy!

Names from the left: Industrio Brick Wall - Brickfest Wall came with OFB - Justin Uther Brick Wall Treatment - "Backhanded Compliment" Brick Wall Treatment - Coursing Soldier Bricks - Coursing Soldier Bricks in Gray - Industrio Brick Wall Basic Wall Came with UNI

How to use:
First of all, you need the CEP or the chimneys won't be recolourable at all.
Put your fireplace where you want it. If you move it after you recolored it, the chimney will revert to the red bricks. Then, in Buy or Build Mode, select the Design Tool. Click on the chimney, and the recolors will appear. There are quite a few parts to the chimney and they all need to be recolored separately.
If you experience any problems or oddities, please let me know.

Other Sets:
I got a few requests and ended up creating chimney recolors matching all of Maxis outdoor wallpapers (the ones I consider outdoor, that is). There are quite a few recolors, but they're named after their corresponding wallpaper, and you can easily delete the ones you don't want and keep only your favourites. These are the existing sets. If you have any other requests, let me know and I’ll have a look at it.

I love these too. I'm so going to have all your chimnies on all my houses from now on. The only thing I can think of that is missing are stucco chimnies for those stone trimmed houses. Anyway, huge thanks for all of these.

They're on the way! Just uploaded the first part: Southwestern Style Stucco. Starting with the others soon.

Whenever people agree with me, I always feel I must be wrong
