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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Tired of having only three pictures to show where your simmies have been? Want to showcase all the marvelous places they've been, or at least fake the friends and family till you get there? Then this download is perfect.

11 remastered and simlished travel posters of vintage variety. These pictures showcase some of the most excotic places in the world (or sim world).

REQUIRES: Bon Voyage, Collectible Poster by Travelkeeper

Simlish Translations:

1. ST. MORTIZ-"The cool place"
2.SPAIN-"The Spanish State Dept."
3.SAN FRANCISCO-"Southern Pacific, four scenic routes meet at...
4.MEXICO-"From the Mexican Tourist Authority"
5.LONDON-"It's Quicker By Rail"
6.DURHAM-"On The London & North Railway"
7.QUEBEC-"Ski Fun! La Province De..."
8.NEW YORK-"The Wonder City of The World,New York Central Lines..."
9.IRELAND-"Land Of Romance,Blarney Castle,Great Southern Rhys,Courtesy of The Tourist Commity"
10.CAIRO-"Egyptian State Railways"

Note that I decided to put the already simmerized pictures that I use for the posters in this download. I know eveyone does't have Bon Voyage or might not like the mesh I used. SO if you want to recolor other wall hanging meshes with these then be my guest, just give credit if you distribute. But DO NOT :
  • Upload to any paysites, TSR included
  • Recolor the recolors

SIMale-For his Simlish fonts.
Simpe-Program used to recolor.
CEP-Allows recolors to show up. the images and inspiration.

I love having Simlish items in my game and these are great! Thanks for giving permission to use the images as well since sometimes the picture's just the wrong size for where you need it

This poster is the perfect size for so many design solutions! Thanks for making the re-colors that make my sims look like they don't all shop at Pottery Barn!

Thanks so much guys! I really liked doing these and I'm happy others agree how we needed some more places for our simmies to go.

Question: I'm thinking about doing more. But I don't want it to be overkill. Opinions?
