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.

I remember my first time playing the Sims 2. The "Krampft Industries Value Counter" was the first counter that I selected for a Sims home. It would also be one of those counters that I chose to add to a home that I was building. Over time, I'm sure anyone would be tired of seeing the same choices in buy mode. I've made a set or counter recolors for those of you who have a thing for The Krampft counter. This set contains 10 recolors for the Krampft Counter and the Krampft Counter top as well. To make things much easier for you all, the tops and bases are in separate files. This enables you to delete a top from it's base and vice versa separately.

The first image below shows which tops and bases match in their files. Of course, you won't have to match them as given. In the download package there will be 10 counter top recolors and 10 counter base recolors.

If you aren't sure where you can find this counter in the game, it's found in the "surfaces/counter" section. The price of the "Krampft Industries Value Counter" is for 140$ in buy mode. The price is what makes it great for beginner sims. I hope you enjoy these recolors.

Additional Credits:
All my credits go out to SimPE, Yahoo images, and Photoshop Cs4. Some of the counter top images were found in yahoo images. Thanks to Adobe Photoshop, I was able to edit the actual colors. SimPE was a main tool to grant access of recoloring the counters.

Style: Contemporary
Room: Kitchen

This might actually entice me back into using those counters...I hate the original colours!

Lovely! I tend to be rather narrow in my choice of counters, as I think most Maxis recolors are super ugly, so this will go along way towards better variation between kitchens in my sim world. Thanks =)

Love recolors, especially when they make a cheap item more beautiful and versatile. Awesome.

Cheap doesn't have to mean ugly! No more avocado green for my poor families!

The black base isn't really black. It's more moss green.
