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.

A black tub with blood red pipes and lip. I figured I would make this to go with the rest of the gothic stuff out there since it seemed in pretty high demand.
The red lip will show up on colonial tubs with and without the shower curtains. I am off to find the elusive shower tub next. The tub does have a matte finish and I would have preferred shiny. My photoshop skills need some work.
*** NOTE***

The updated version does not have the red rim. Since there is already a red rim in the game and this was only a bit darker I chose to leave it out. (It also didn't want to update either.. ) This file has a new name so you will need to delete the old one.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I will add that to my list. I am hopefully going to finish up with windows sometime tomorrow. I might toss this little project in between window recolors.

I agree with Marlomkr, this does look great in the game. As far as it not being shiny, that just adds to the ambience in a creepy old house. I also think a black tub with silver feet and facuet would be awesome. Thank you for all of your efforts, Dhevynstarr!
