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.

With the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival fast approaching here in Hong Kong, I decided to run up a selection of paper lantern recolours...

Chinese Riddle Lantern (Lights / Ceiling / 175)
Shoji Table Lantern (Lights / Table / 175)
MAREK Lamp (Lights / Floor / 29)


The MAREK lamp is from IKEA; table and ceiling are base game lights. All three come in 21 colours, including ash, cloud, ecru, tan, cocoa, sun, orng, apple, blush, flamingo, lotus, berry, plum, iris, lilac, sky, aqua, teal, denim, fir, and wasabi. Files are clearly named for ease of selection and have been Compressorized.


PS: I hope everyone in the area made it through Super Typhoon Mangkhut safely today!
