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.

EDIT: If anyone's interested, recolors of the other Mission-style stuff are now available on my Simblr. The seating (which coordinates with the dining room chairs in this post) and tables are here and the beds are here .

I'm surprised it took me so long to do these. The Mission-style furniture from OFB is pretty much my favorite Maxis meshes, especially the beds. So, I've finally gotten around to recoloring all of it in a matching wood/upholstery palette. I'm putting the dining set up here; the others -- Seating, tables, beds -- will go up on my Simblr over the next few days. I just need to finish up the beds and take pictures and stuff.

Anyway, this is the dining set. The tables and chair frames are in the 12 colors I usually use to recolor wood furniture. The chair upholstery is in 16 Crayola colors, with a stripey texture that's supposed to be corduroy-like.

Here are the table and chair frame colors:

There's also a larger image attached to show detail.

And here are the upholstery colors:

I uploaded two files, one for the chairs and one for the tables. The chair one has two folders in it, one for the frames and one for the upholstery. If you don't want one or the other, just extract only the folder you want. The files are all compressed and clearly named. They require Open For Business.

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

Verrrrrrry pretty - I love these. Thank you (although I'm not sure my downloads folder feels the same way about you than I do :))

I really appreciate how you package your furniture recolors. With my downloads folder bulging at the seams, I like the ability to pick and choose just the colors I want.

I've been playing TS2 since 2006 and still am happy to find new additions. Thank you!
