This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Hello people!
I had a few users comment in my other thread about wanting more recolours of Numenor's wonderful magazine rack, so here they are.
There are only two I'm afraid but thats better than none right?

The green rack comes with the magazines recoloured as newspapers and the red rack comes with some report type document things. I'm not 100% sure as the Sim who owned them wouldn't let me take a closer look.

As with my previous recolours, the "magazines" and racks are linked so if you delete the rack colour in game then you also loose the corresponding "magazines".

The vertical and horizontal files are seperate so if you don't need/want both then you don't have to.

If anyone has any suggestions to other recolours they would like then post them below and I will see what I can do if I get time. Please be specific.

Please don't upload these anywhere else or use my magazine textures as bases for your own. They took me a long time to get right.

Thanks for these two recolours, they're awesome. I would love to see maxis match colours, i.e. 3 wood colours from the Mission furniture. Black one and a White one too. They'd go well with the Ikea stuff pack.

Thank you for these Menaceman44, sorry I must have missed the B&W recolours.

I have already made black and white recolours in my previous upload:

I'm glad you like these though.

Ooh thank you! I've been using your other recolours and thoroughly enjoy them. These will add some nice variety.

And since you're asking for suggestions, some more natural wood colours would be nice. Dark wood, light wood, medium wood... Maxis-matchy as rhldavies suggested. And if you run out of ideas for the magazines, maybe you could use the actual magazine covers from the game? Oh also - it's a bit more work but you *could* make the magazine recolours and the wood recolours separate so if one is deleted it doesn't take anything out with it.

Anyway, these recolours look great. Thanks again!
