I don't think I could even if I tried.

I meant one last IKEA cep-extra. I think every item in that SP is now recolorable. =)

Oh good. You had me scared for a bit there. This sounds like a challenge. I shall have to fire up my game and go look at every single thing from IKEA and report back to you on your win.

I've gotten so picky about being able to recolor the frame separately and now you've just doubled my options! Seriously, there are only like 3 paintings with 2 subsets! Thank you thank you :D

I am distressed to report that I am still unable to recolor the zebra painting! All six show up in my game as designable, but when I try to recolor them in Object Workshop, the zebra and the cityscape both fail to pull the correct resources, instead they try to pull some of the AL wall cornices. The RIBBA, the graphic horse, and the two BILDs work fine. At first they wouldn't show me the subset window, but the second or third try got them straightened out. Is there something special I should be doing to recolor CEP_EXTRA files that I've neglected? I've double checked that my install location is correct and that I've got the folders selected in the file table. Its odd that only 2 don't work and the other 4 do though...

Edit: Another oddity, when I change the frame color on the dog BILD painting, the photo subset resets to the default.

I've figured out what is causing the issue, but not why.

It's the CEP-Extras by Havelock for the Al/MG architectural set.

EDIT: Should hopefully be fixed now. Both paintings pull correct resources for me. As for the other pictures, I've not yet reproduced that issue of subsets reverting.

Yay! I can finally recolor that zebra and the gorgeous cityscape! As for the textures resetting, I think I saw something in the GMND when I was trying to CEP it myself, said something about the photo being a slave subset. I made only a recolor of the photo and when I have it set to one of those and I change the frame to one of the two included ones, it changes the photo back.

Edit: That only happens the first time I pick a new recolor, when I start clicking around like a madman with design options, the photo stays put like it should. Small quirk, I can live with it. So happy to have my zebra recolors!!! (I do plan on uploading them, but part of a gigantic set, so it will be a while yet.) Thank you!

I've tried recolouring these today and they all work fine except for the RIBBA painting, it's only showing one subset (the photo)

Hi,
Can please someone help me out as recolours of Dog, Horse and Ribba paintings are not working for me. I'm sure, that everything was put in right place, and CEP is installed correctly (even reinstalled it, to make sure, it's ok).
It looks like recolours of paintings are showing behind the item (http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/610/ikeaw.jpg), and are not showing on thumbnails.
This is the first time I'm having that kind of problems with recolours. I'd like to thank you for any help.

Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem as rainnette84. It's weird because I'm pretty sure recolors of the ribba painting I had were showing up before, but I may have been mistaken.

Any recolors made without this installed won't show properly. The originals had only one subset recolorable (the frame) where the texture was applied. Now this has the frame as well as photo, but old recolors are only pointing to the frame texture and not the photo. So the photo textures are not going to show up.

Unfortunately, any old recolors will need to be remade.
