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.

In this set is a mix of different wood sidings from a couple of expansion packs up to FFS. Enjoy!

Names from the left: Shingles by Fairytale2You Wall came with NL - "Naughty Pine" Siding - "Shingle Bells" Wood Shingles - Wood Clapboard Again Wall came with OFB - Wood Clapboard Reloaded Wall came with OFB - Wood Clapboard Wall came with OFB - Wood Clapboard Repeated Wall came with OFB

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.

Hm, I've downloaded all the chimney recolors and followed the instructions but they won't work for me... when I click the design tool and then click the chimney, it says there aren't any recolors available for it. I have all eps up to Seasons... any help?

Do you have the CEP (can be found here)? If not, the chimney's won't be recolourable. Install it, and they should work.

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

Ah, I had the older version from before Seasons and hadn't realized it had been updated. I'll download that and see if it works. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for noting which EPs go with which choice right in the file name. It makes choosing which ones to extract so much easier as I install the ones I want into my game.

Thanks for thinking of this. Having no choice over chimney colors used to drive me nuts...
