Love love love love. There are so many beds that I never touch because I don't like the colors, and now I love all of them. Thank you for this, and all your creations of this series.

It's cool, but I have a kind question to you: could you consider recolouring objects from Castaway too? I use some base game-compatible custom content in Castaway and it works perfectly, but I'm bored to death with those green, grey and yellow bamboo textures all the time. I want to make the island appear more civilised, more like a postcolonial territory, for instance there is a bookshelf that looks like a weathered IKEA bookshelf. I am 90% sure it's the IKEA mesh. Seeing recolours that make the furniture and so on look as if it was washed ashore the island (but not after hundreds of years as it's shown in Castaway :P), it would be perfect. I'm waiting to hear from you :D.

@ Arlesienne, I don't have castaway sorry, I'll head to eBay and see if I can get it, if I do get it I'll take a look and see what I can do for you.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their work...click on it.

This is something I've wanted for years in my game, especially for the beds, the bookcases and the piano which was the most ridiculous reddish brown I've ever seen. Coming back to S2 after getting used to all the benefits of S3, lack of recolors was simply too much. Thank you again for this!!
