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.
This is my first recolor that I've ever shared before (I'm kind of new with this, lol).

I recently uploaded this house with a swimmable lake. (To learn how to make this kind of swimmable lake, click here. )

And after uploading the house, it occurred to me that the Maxis white diving board and ladder really don't look like they belong at the end of a dock like that. So I've made recolors to make them look more realistic. Now they have wooden planks, and the metal parts look rusted (like what you'd see on a real dock).

Instructions: Extract the rar file to your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads directory.

Compatibility: This should be compatible for all users.

Hope you like it!
