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.

Once upon a time I made a countertop for Rgiles Scarborough kitchen set... And ~Po~ asked me for silver. Then she asked me for additional countertops for the maxis counters. I know it's taken me a while but I finally got my act together and finished the first set of what I hope is a number of sets of brushed metallic countertops.

I've made these with SimPE .48 (and I thank the creators of both the main tool and the plugins) with CEP v3 installed. I don't have Nightlife yet but plan on getting it soon. When I do I'll add those counters too. The .rar files contain packages for every Maxis counter in the base game and University. So look under the surfaces in either community or residental lots and you should see these countertops.

There are no bases in my .rar. These are the countertops only. And don't ask for .zip. Please get winrar, Filemaid for Sims2, or another decompression utility that can handle .rar.

edited to add: Oh I see folks with Nightlife downloading these... Are they showing up okay in your games? Please let me know. (and it seems they work fine. As soon as I have the game myself and can verify I'll update the sort)

I'm adding another color... Zinc. Zinc is pink. Bet you didn't know that, :moose:
(Real zinc nails)

But enough of that. Here's the Zinc. Bronze may be my next color.
Style: Modern
Room: Kitchen
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Awesome job
`Very nice countertops...That will give me more ideas than one can imagine.

I'm downloading the countertops and will use them.

Maybe you can do bronze or gold ones next. :sprint:
