Recolorable Pet Collar.

This is a package without a mesh, so the mesh will be referenced by the game itself. It is easy to recolor and each new one will be a stand alone collar. So, once you have recolored the original one, you can delete it if you like. DO NOT recolor (actually clone) the recolors in order to get around using the original. There are no promises to what that might do to your game. Plus, it is rude.

Now onto the cool stuff:

There are two original packages. One for dogs that includes both the large and small dog information (Paleowesdogcollar) and one for cats (Paleowescatcollar). They are included in the collars.rar file. These are what you will need to recolor your own collars.

These do NOT replace Maxis pet collars! They are adding to the catalogue.

Included is the original collar done in a orange camo, and two templates for recoloring. The tutorial on how to recolor will be in the Object Creation and Texturing Forum here:


Additionally, I have made some recolors which will be posted in this thread as a separate download. The cat does come with a skull and bones collar, it is just not pictured.


In my game, if I buy several collars, exit the game and reenter, the extras (the ones not on the dog) do not seem to be in inventory. So, only buy as you need. I recommend getting the Buy Pet Collars at Home so you won't have to make extra trips:



Please credit me (Paleoanth) and Wes_h when making your own collars and please link to this thread when submitting them. People need to get the original packages to do their own, plus any updates will be found here.


Darqstar@TSR tested the packages, the tutorial and recoloring templates. I would like to thank her for taking the time to help out. You can look for her recolors over there.

obsessisim for originally asking the question about recoloring the collars that led to all this. Thanks!

Of course Quaxi for SimPE.
