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.

Update - 3 April 2005

Discovered that the original green re-colour I did, did not like being updated, so I re-did the entire lot and added a few more re-colours. The re-colours now also include re-coloured interiors. In order to re-colour the interiors of the love tub I have had to link a spa to each one, so now the love tubs also come with a matching spa.

Update - 13 February 2005.

Have updated the files to be compatible with the upcoming expansion pack and added the option to download all the tubs in one zip file.

My romance sims wanted a change from the same old Aspiration reward love tub, so I obliged them and re-coloured them in purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, black (including dead foilage and flowers), and white (for those 'pure' sims). Daysies, the pink one is coming (its been made, but I don't have a screenshot of it yet). I have tried these in my own game and they work ok for me.

COLOUR ENABLED PACKAGES REQUIRED: These recoloured objects were made using the new colour enabling package features in SimPE Object Workshop. This enables Maxis objects which only had 1 color option available to turn the option on if content is added to provide more colour/texture items. If you do not have these colour enable packages installed this object will not be available in your game. To download the colour enabled packages and install on your system please see http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?p=119480 and follow the installation instructions there.

Any and all feedback is welcomed.

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

Ahhh, so you're ambidextrous and have two computers. One side of you recolors & uploads and the other actually plays the game. My hero!!

Once again, brilliant work. <3

One question, can you select the color when you actually pick the item from the rewards menu (like on buy mode), or you have to use the design tool afterwards?

Wireless, I downloaded 4 of these into University and they worked fine.

Have completely re-done the love tubs after discovering one of them did not like being updated, plus added a few more re-colours.

Cheers. :D

Thanks for updating them. I have to say they look much better now that the inside is able to be recolored too.

Default I just wanted to tell you
That I, for one, really appreciate the choice you give us of being able to d/l a specific color or two OR the entire set.
Thank you for being so considerate!

Beautiful craftsmanship, mate!

And I would say that your choice of materials went perfectly with my graveyard's castle stone and tile.

Thank you, very much!
