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.

Seven Maxis Match "Value" Mirrors for Fat City Counters


These downloads contain recolours of the base game "Reflective Glass Mirror", also called the "Value" or simply the "Cheap" Mirror, that sells for §100 and has an Environment value of 1. This set matches the Nightlife Fat City Counters that sell for §630. Of course Nightlife is not required to load these mirrors. I omitted recolours for the stainless and light wood counters because they have already been taken care of in my previous uploads. I was attracted to doing this set by the particularly rich colours of the Fat City collection.

You may include these recolours in any uploaded lots, whether for free or pay - although it would be nice if you included a credit in the description and sent me a PM. Apart from using them in lots, I would prefer that you not upload this collection or portions of it elsewhere.

Additional Credits:

SimPE 6.0, which makes it all possible
Corel WEB.PhotoPaint, for colouring
Microsoft Photo Editor, for attaching the backs to the mirrors and for file conversion
BaseGameStarter Pro, so handy speeding up the development process
Attribute Change 5.30, used to adjust a file's date and timestamp, which puts the recolours together in consecutive order and usually puts the most recent recolour furthest to the left.

I can't believe I didn't see this until now! Thanks for making Maxis things bearable and useable. Maxis has such a bad taste in furniture (and hair for that matter).

Thank you! I'm amazed that they didn't offer more choices. I do have other custom mirrors, but since I'm stuck with the Maxis items, it's great to have color choices for those as well.
