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.

For now here are some paintings of mixed sizes themed Military. All were made using the PhotoShop plugin (I recommend it now for the quality of the images generated by these pictures when in game). I have 7 I am working on but one template I created refuses to show anything but the lettered file name on it. And one picture while using one of Quaxi's premade templates does not show at all and it looks like I may have reached a limit on the size of file it will actually handle there.

COLOUR ENABLED PACKAGES REQUIRED: These recoloured objects were made using the new colour enabling package features in SimPE Object Workshop (version 0.14a and above). This enables most Maxis objects which only had 1 color option available to turn on the option, if content is added, to provide more colour and textures. If you do not have these colour enable packages installed these objects will not be available in your game. To download the Colour Enabled Packages (CEP) and install on your system please see and follow the installation instructions there.

OTHER NOTES: If you have a problem let me know. If you want a request email me OR private message me. It would help tremendously if you had the images you wanted done as there is no guarantee I can find them. With the PhotoShop plugin almost any image can be used without too much trouble. No smaller than 256x256 and the higher the quality the better. Screenshots no longer do justice to these pictures when you see them in game. Using the Photo Studio Plugin is recommended when making paintings. Take the time to make your own templates - the time saved and the quality of the final product is truly worth it.

Edit: Updated the screenshot with a closer one. It does show the pictures in a better light.

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