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.


you Need the meshes from Aussie Top enders for these to work, addy below.

I have removed the downloads because Lucas from Aussie top enders ( have a re-colorable hydrangea now. So instead of filling up your build section with individual bushes you'll now be able to have just one new one.

I'll get working on these asap, I'd recommend deleting the old files!!

I'll repost the new colors here (and a black one ) really soon!!

Thank you for your thanks!!

These are re-colors of the blue hydrangea, they are separate objects with their own ID. But since I didn't actually change the shape I just put these in with the re-colors. Unfortunately the blue hydrangea cannot be re-colored, so I had to clone it. Each color is a separate object in your build mode-bushes.

I have the EP, and I'm not sure if you need the CEP files (who doesn't have those yet? :lol). Please let me know if they work in your game (both EP and not).

Take Care, and enjoy!!!


I'll also be working on the phlox next week. Please feel free to request plant recolors in the request forum, I'm always looking for ideas!

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