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.

Indeed - Deedee and I were discussing how sick to death we are of all the brown stuff in this game and there are NO real wall deco's for modern houses, so this is a start.

The help I need is that it seems every time I make 2 of the same objects the second one doesn't have a unique thumbnail generation in the I going nuts wtf do I keep missing? Is my brain like, you know, dying??! Appreciate any advice thanks!

Now EP ready - packages fixed/updated with SimPE version .17

Thank you so much!! This is exactly what I needed for my more modern houses. I love it!

Your brain isn't dying, Loverat. Once a thumbnail is generated on an item, it seems to be stuck until the end of time. I found it was easier and faster just to redo an entire recolor. I never did figure out if it's possible to fix the thumbnail separately, but I tried for a couple hours and got nowhere.

These will look nice in my hippy house.[piece of fresh cheese for rat].

I just rename my filename, redo the hash, you are kind of redoing everything but the graphic, then the game thinks you did a new file and you never see the wrecked thumbnail.

my guess would be that they's appear in the same section as a regular wall hanging... but that's just me though :jig:

If you think you're a d/l whore,that must make me the madam... Don't forget, it's cash upfront or out on your a** you go!

These are beautiful in-game..thank you so much! Please make more if you're so inclined..

About thumbnails: I found that you don't have to redo the entire hash, just add one letter to the name (everywhere) and save it under a different filename and you're set!

By the way, love the second tapestry, Loverat.
