A small edit to the value door, making the handle recolorable separately. The silver handle recolor is part of the unlocked grey value door.

I thank you kindly for this. It is quite nice being able to do separate recolours. However, I have a small beef with you, missy. I have UC installed. Your instructions for installing the program files are fine until the (x86) level. After that, I haven't a clue where to place the files. [HL_CEP_doorValue-programfiles - Install this in C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\zCEP-EXTRA] The EA GAMES file has nothing but HomeCrafterPlus in it. The Origins Games files, where S2 is installed on my puter has a Double Delux file. But if I go down that rabbit hole, there is no CEP-Extra file. So, where is the program file to be installed, please?

@ HugeLunatic have a question. the discription says " I've also included my silver recolor of the handle." But in the download it isn't., or do i understand something wrong?
the silver handle doesn't show up in game with only these two files, i've tested it.

Hi HugeLunatic. Same here, I don't see the silver door handle in my game even if I think I have installed everything the right way. Thank you for replying.

@HugeLunatic I'm another who is having issues with this upload and doesn't have the silver recolor. The CEP shows up correctly--but there is only one color. Do I need the file from here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/595457...found-quot.html as well?

@HugeLunatic, I put the recolor in, but I'm still not seeing it. I have to double check in a no cc environment to make sure none of the add ons I have are conflicting, though.

ETA: With just the CEP and the recolor in, I get a grey recolor of the door, but no recolor of the handle.

Sorry to double post, but I'm not sure if you saw my reply @HugeLunatic. Even in a no cc environment and just the CEP and the recolor from the other post, there is only a grey recolor of the door. There is no recolor of the handle. The handle is the original brass color. Is there another file or extra step I am missing?

@Phantomknight So everything works in my game, but tbh, I'm not sure why? I think something is missing between the CEP and the door recolor. I need to see what else is possibly hanging out in my game folders. Currently chaos is reigning in Minneapolis, so I can't look into it right now.

No problem; I didn't know you were from Minneapolis. Stay safe!

@HugeLunatic, first let me say, I really, really appreciate you looking into this. Next, I'm very reluctant to admit that the new file isn't working either. I've tried it in my normal game, and in a test setup, and now both the grey door recolor and the grey door handle are missing. Maybe it's my game, though? I really didn't think you'd need to spend so much time on this, but perhaps someone else can test the files, too? To see if it's really something wrong or just something on my end?

I'm so sorry!

@Phantomknight The issue was all me. I had the wrong file in the zip. I've now updated it with the file from my downloads folder, which works. Please note that the package filename is different! I organize my dl's by placing the object name (ie: door) before the rest so it sorts nicely.

Don't ever be reluctant to mention issues! If at all possible I like to fix files so they work.
