- Extremely fast skill gain (approx. four times faster)
- Higher sale prices for paintings
- Does not overwrite the behaviour of Maxis' standard easel
- Different color (dark red-brown), so it can be separated from standard easel
- Available in Buy mode: Hobbies - Creativity (costs 8,500, but it's worth the price)
- GUID registered with SimPE to avoid conflicts with other SimPE-registered mods / hacks.

Needed files:
1. CtfG_MagicEasel_v0.1.package
2. CtfG_MagicEasel_Painting_v0.1.package
(both included in zip file)

Important note: Both files are needed for the Magic Easel to work. #1 contains the easel itself, #2 creates the painting and does the controlling, like "Continue painting", "Sell" etc. If you should skip file #2, the easel will not work since both packages exchange data.

Installation / Uninstallation:
- to install, simply extract both files from the zip into your Downloads folder in "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2".
- to uninstall, remove or delete both files.

Update 2006-10-03:
Fixed the problem that the painting became unselectable after painting was interrupted. Reported by LadyMarisa (post #18) and solved by Smonaff (post #20). If you have only TS2 or Uni installed, please re-download the zip and re-install. Sorry for the inconvinience, and thanks to Smonaff for the solution.

Update 2006-10-25:
The problem with objects not showing up in the base game is cleared. Please read more about this in this thread, post #23.
