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.

rena2sweet4u ask if I had recoloured the groovy counters in the AL wood colours. After weeks of trying different base colours and TXMT values, I'm finally happy enough to upload the University - Groovy Disco Stuff in AL wood and MALM colours. HeartDeco recently uploaded a Circle of Light Friendship Table Lamp which is slaved to the floor lamp, you can get it HERE.

A few thing you should know:
The bases looked terrible in AL and MALM colours so I finally settled on a silver/grey base. Everything with two subset has a separate recolour for the base which is included in both zip files. There is more of a shine than normal on the wood, on the tables,chairs and dresser, due to those objects only having 1 subset. I also included a plain silver/grey recolour of the MMM Mini Fridge.

University is required for these recolours!

Hi Michelle, I was wondering if you can help. I scanned my game with HCDU after I download CC and after d'ling these recolors, HCDU crashes saying these are the culprit. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated because it has happened to a few more of your recolors... perhaps somehow the files are corrupted? I tried re-downloading with no luck- the same error happened. Thanks for your time :-)

@babyliss - G'Day hun, sorry to hear you are having a problem with these recolours. I do not know much about the HCDU but I thought it was something to find game hacks that conflict with each other not recolours. I know the files are not corrupted and as they are just recolours of the Maxis/EA objects they should not be causing anything to crash.
In saying that I do have a friend that has problems every time she tries to install files that have been compressed, they crash her game and we have never been able to work out why it happens. Unfortunately I compress all my files with The Compressorizer.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their work...click on it.
