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.

OK. We cannot provide *extra* recolours for the bottles but we *CAN* choose what our default colour is in the game. For me green baby bottles are really just revolting.

A big thanks to my paisano RGiles for extracting for me the right file :D

This next part is in caps: ALL THE PACKAGES ARE NAMED THE SAME BECAUSE YOU MAY ONLY HAVE ONE COLOUR BABY BOTTLE. If you choose black, for example, all baby bottles in your game will be black.

Now if we all understand this I give you white, baby pink, baby blue and black for gothy babies.

Download and house in your My Docs/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads folder =)

Please forgive me for not supplying a screenshot - but my game takes a long time to load and the thought of sitting here swapping out a file over and over to take a screenshot was not appealing =) I tested the white version in my game on a real live Sim baby and not only did it look GOOD....it worked

EDIT: I have now attached a screenie of the WHITE bottle only after being harangued, harassed, insulted and abused by my fellow mods - especially that RGiles person. Pfft and you thought being a staff member was fun??!!

This was true of the first game too, so it makes sense. So...do you suppose we could do the same with diapers? I ask because the Sims 1 equivelent of diapers - the baby sleepers- worked the same way as the bottles; you could only use one at a time.

Edit: Nevermind. If you clone the diaper there's no image file to edit. Oh well.

the white one is working for me and I was very very pleased that it also changed the color of my buyable "bottomless feeding bottle" that I got at http://www.simlogical.com/

Ah, poor Loverat...I really don't understand why Maxis didn't just make the damn bottle white to begin with. Clear bottles with milk in them look white. In fact I think most of the bottles I know of are mostly white. So yeah, I'll use the white! Hehe. Thank you Loverat.

This override bottle package is in it's subfolder. Did you take this bottle package out of it's subfolder into my documents/ea games/the sims 2/downloads folder?

Thank you pfish, I really am at a loss as to why it doesn't show up in the game. I don't have any sub-folders in my downloads. Any other ideas???
Test Subject
#24 Old 29th Mar 2005 at 2:12 PM
When I download a .rar file it shows up already unzipped as a .rar file unlike the zip files which I have to manualy unzip which becomes a .package file. I am still confused. I have many files in my downloads which are identified as .rar files verses .package files. Some show up in the game and some don't. like the baby bottle.
Please help the confused!! Me LOL

dsczerby, if you don't have a program that unzips .rar files then that could be your problem.

btw, I keep this in a subfolder in my downloads folder and it works just fine.
