Title: 64 HiRes Wood Basegame Vase Collection Recolours

BUGFIX August 25, 2016: Changed Two Conflicting Filenames

The filenames for the Red Oak and Santa Maria recolours were the same as those released in the Tiny Filesize Basegame Vase Collection, therefore they would overwrite them. This release differentiates the new filenames by adding a "2" at the end, i.e. sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_RedOak2 and sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_SantaMaria2, so as to remove the conflict.

Please download sdSculptureVaseCollectionBG_vase_HiResNaturalWood for the update.


a) To provide high resolution wood recolours for the basegame "Sculpture - Vase Collection", also called the "Museé Public Collection Sculpture", available from the Decorative/Sculpture buy mode catalogue for §200.

b) Together with the 150+ Tiny Filesize Basegame Vase Collection Recolours set, to provide a large repository of linearly mapped hi-res basegame textures that are available for object creators to utilize in new projects, rather than reinventing the wheel and unnecessarily loading up the game with limited-use new textures. Where possible, slaving new projects to objects that are already in the basegame also avoids the requirement that a custom-created master object must be present in the Downloads folders for a slave object to successfully locate. The 100+ Tiny Filesize Transport Urn Recolours, Sims 2 Opportunity Pack Lectern & Accessories, Lady Ravendancer's Magical Arcana and 140+ Tiny Filesize Glass Coffee Table Recolours projects were similarly designed as resources to build up this basegame texture repository.


In contrast with the 150+ Tiny Filesize Basegame Vase Collection Recolours project, these uploads maximize texture quality rather than minimizing resource use through the recycling of textures that are already present in the basegame. These recolour sets use 512 x 512 pixel textures to convey a very fine grained and authentic natural wood appearance to the vase decor. All files are compressed.

To aid in the creation of decorative themes, the majority of these vase recolours are also available for the The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk Recovery Project, The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk Pooklet Expansion Set and The Sims 2 Opportunity Pack Lectern & Accessories. The Pooklet recolours in particular offer compatibility with a large variety of custom content.
