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.

UPDATED for EP

All these curtains have now been updated for compatability with the upcoming Expansion Pack. The files in the attached zip will overwrite the old versions. Note that if you have any of these curtains in use on your lots they may revert to Maxis standard colours/patterns when you load up the lot. If this happens, just use the in game "Design tool" to reselect the correct design.

**************************************************

I was playing around with recolouring curtains and got a bit carried away.
Here are 10 new velvet curtains to enhance your sims decor.

They are slightly textured/patterned.

Credit should go to Pinhead for his awesome tutorial, RGiles for his trailblazing work on recolouring and of course Quaxi for SimPE All 10 colours are included as seperate packages in the zip.

Enjoy

**UPDATED** Matching Veil curtains now available here http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=32526

**UPDATED** 02-01-05 Beige and white added by request.

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

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou for doing these. I've been avoiding the curtains that came with the game as they didn't suit anything that I wanted to do with the houses I've built.

Oh, nice! I've been wanting to see some more decent curtains, as the ones in the game look fit more for a whorehouse than a nice abode (no offence, Maxis.) Danke, danke!

Yet again another wonderful download that includes all the colors zipped into one. Yay! I am really starting to get annoyed having to click 10 times to get one collection. See now if I dont like one color in this collection then I just dont install that one package. Sweet deal!

This is awesome!!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Ravynlee: RGiles has already done a great job at producing some great black curtains, see this thread http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=31672

Temporary: Don't let me stop you! There are still plenty of other curtain styles to improve, not to mention the blinds.

Time permitting I'll try to produce a few more curtains in matching colours for some of the other styles. We really need some to cover double windows.

I can't guarantee I will be able to do any more soon, with a wife and daughter now demanding recoloured bedding and furniture SimPE is getting a flogging as it is! Oh, so many objects, so little time.
