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.

After the floral modern sofa, here's another texture created by Maxis and then abandoned.
This time it's a stainless steel decor for the expensive barbecue.

For anyone interested in something more than just the exterior look of an object, I want to say that this object has an incredible reflectivity: the texture itself is just plain grey (since the name), but in the MATD the reflectivity parameters are very well balanced, so that the object looks pretty different in the game; I was really surprised (because I was expecting an ugly grey texture).
This is a subject that would deserve a deeper investigation... :idea:
Style: Retro
Room: Outdoor

Putting skins, hair, makeup, etc in separate subfolders in The Sims 2 folder did not work for me either. Only objects. Sure would like to be able toseparate all those.
