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.

*UPDATE* #3: 6 March, Tested and working with University

As per request, and cause I wanted them too, here are some black curtains and blinds.

For the Colonial expensive drapey ones (all 3 sizes):
All black
Black with original gold trim
Black with red trim

For the lower floor length velvet ones, all black. I can't change the gold accents without overwriting then on every instance of the object, so I didn't touch them.

And of course, black for the blinds.

Please let me know if you find any problems. Yes, my preview image is ugly

I put these all in separate *.package files inside the zip, so you could install just the ones you want. Is that good, or would it be better to put them all in a single package?

Just thought I'd share a photo of my "wide" black blinds. I used the snapObjectsToGrid and move objects cheats to join three blinds together and cover this wider window.

This is awesome! Next to ratty/worn out furnishing/recolours THIS is what I've been hunting after! Now... like everyone else... waiting patiently for walls and floors to match... Much thanks again!

I disagree, it is easier to just pick though later then... open and and save... ad infinum. :Pimp:

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?
