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.

EP Compliant zips at bottom of page

Also go's good with carrigons no pop balloons

Carrigons no pop balloons

Just thought i would create some new colour styles of the balloons
I will try and update with softer colours and more patterns so watch this thread, i hope you like them please let me know if you have any problems with them thank you, Fire.

oh i was not sure if they were considered a CEP Recolour or not? sorry i was not paying attention, but if they are you can get the file here to get them working in the game,

I deleted my post that was here, because I discovered what I did to cause the problem. I attempted to delete "1" of the balloons because it was the same as one of the defaults, I saw no change. Well after doing that, the others that were in the same package started flashing blue on me, then when I reloaded the game, they disappeared on me. Well, silly, thats because when I deleted "1" it deleted the whole package....Anyway, another false alarm, sorry.

These works great now and so do the hibiscus files, but the 2 snow covered bushes still ask for a password. Thanks
