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.

After Liz made a couple of plain-glass recolors for the base game's Lamp on the Half Shell, I decided I wanted a few more. In keeping with the lamp's antique-ish look, I went with the mint, blush, blue, and sand colors from Seasons.

Since Liz recolored the globe in white, I used that texture as my template, and blended the Seasons colors with it. I recolored the whole texture, so if you have my CEP-Extra for the Lamp on the Half Shell, you get recolors of the fixture as well as recolors of the globe. If the CEP-Extra isn't installed, the recolors of the globe will work, but the fixture will not be recolorable, and the game will use the lamp's default texturing for the fixture.
