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.

Ah the classics! Is there anything better? I think not. Sadly, it is beyond my power to send each of you the actual games to see why they are so desirable. But I can give your Sims a poster, each displaying the box-shot of these oh
so sweet games.
Choose your favorite. Or select them all. Each are in the decorations column, behind that surfer alien (see photo) and priced under $60. I included only highly rated, discontinued games--with the acception of Starcraft (its still being sold). If you can dowload them, do so from your area. Find out why I chose these games; and please, tell me if I missed some.

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

Oh thank you, I loved so much playing the Dig and Monkey Island. Why don't you make a poster for Indiana Jones and Fate of Atlantis too? It was a so funny game, perhaps the most enjoyable of the Indy games. Thank you in any case and ciao.

Call me old, but when I think of Classic Games, I think of Shuttle Commander, GORF, Congo Bongo, Murder on the Zinderhauf, Fooblitzky, 221 B Baker Street...Early 80 games basically. 90's games are just...too recent. *kicks a bucket and takes a breath - oi I am getting old...

I like to play Deadline or Witness....Scratch that, I play most games made by Infocom (Except for LGOP and the Zork series). Long live the Atari 8-bit!
