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 set of four fictional movie posters for your game is an attempt to make good on improving a previous submission that was not accepted.
All the posters are recolors of the Maxis "Surfing The Universe" poster which was included with the University EP so you will need University to use these recolors.
These should look pretty good in a movie theater, video store, or any home. Keep in mind that the posters should look sharper in-game than in the images provided here.

The movies on the posters are:

Dick Justice - A 70's police detective action flick (think Shaft)
Lords & Ladies - Basic sappy victorian era romance/drama film
Fish Thing 2 - A spoof of Creature From The Black Lagoon
HELLoween 4 - Basic Friday The 13'th/Scream type horror flick.

Instructions: In the LeafyLordMoviePosters.rar file you'll find the four posters as .package files. Just place them in your Documents/EA GAMES/The Sims 2/Downloads folder.

Terms of Use: Do whatever you want with these but you cannot claim them as your own work, or upload them to pay sites.

Additional Credits:
Generalzoi for the fin accessories used on the "Fish Thing"
McTrick for the body texture of "Fish Thing"
Rosesims for rose in mouth accessory and mask mesh
Ooga Booga for recolor of rosesims' mask mesh and "Jason" skintone
Fanseelamb for leather jacket/turtleneck and Jeans on Dick Justice
Jixs for prop attachment hack
SussisSoGoodSims for regency coat
VampCat for holdable MP5 and holdable Winchester rifle
Joan12334 for sunglasses on Dick Justice
Earendil for recolor of Maxis aviator sunglasses

Also credit goes to Rockstar games for the inspiration of two of the movie titles. "Dick Justice" and "Lords & Ladies" which were featured in the Max Payne games as fictional TV shows.

These are awesome, though, could you maybe make a simlish version, or one without text? My sims don't read english.

I enjoyed so much the movie The Fish Thing, it was in 3D right? hehe Lovely and funny set. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the comments everyone. This was my first accepted upload here and I'm pretty happy with it. Unfortunately I can't make simlish versions of these exact same posters but I will definitely try to make an english and simlish version of any future posters I might make.
