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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These are replacements for the Hatchback vehicle. At the time, I only have one, but I'm definitely going to make more, and some for other cars, too.

Very simple to use- Just place it in your downloads folder, and the car changes. Then, you can easily take it right out to change it back. This is just the original hatchback with mismatched doors and hood, and busted turn signals.

If you download 2 or more, be sure to only use ONE at a time. More than 1 hatchback recolor will confict with each other, so its one at a time.

This is the first thing I've ever made, and its not all that good, but I plan on making more. Its in Gameplay hacks because its not a recolor, you don't use the design tool, but a replacement. I'm VERY sorry if it's in the wrong place, its kind of a mix between a couple things... If they aren't very high quality, thats mainly because I made them mostly for myself.

Tell me what you think. And though I'm not a great recolorer, I'd be glad to take a request for this vehicle.

ALSO-If anyone can help, look for my topic in General Modding on this..I'm having some trouble.
UPDATE- 6/18
Added a red recolor, has a little more rust on sides and on back hatch. I'm trying to make some without ruse and with clean windsheilds, but having trouble cleaning the windsheilds.

Because it isn't really a recolor, as you dont use the design tool, and it replaces something, rather than adding on, so I took it to be a hack. If its not, and some friendly mod reads this, please move it for me...rather than deleting it or something.

Leaving it in hacks.. while it is a recolored car, they are not a recolorable object. You have to clone them and replace the original car. Sounds more like a hack to me since it replaces an in game item.

Hey, this is great! Thanks! The mis-matched door reminds me of my mom's Datsun.
