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.

Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.


This may seem like a small thing to some, but I am so excited about uploading my first recolour. This is a set of recolours of the Maxis Holiday pack 'Sacred Star'. There are 3 sets, shiny, craft wood and a bonus glowing lit up star.

Found:Buy mode>Decorative>Wall hangings. Cost is $18


The shiny set comprises of pink, purple, blue, turquoise, orange and white. In the sun you will see a shine. I would advise using the white one only inside.


The wooden set has 3 natural wood colours of white, oak and mid brown. These are like the craft wood shapes that you can buy at craft shops.


Then there are 4 coloured craft wood stars in dark green, red, black and orange. The wooden stars are non shiny.

Lastly is the bonus lit up or glowing star. This would make for a good Christmas tree topper.
