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.

For the collectors out there here are two (at least for now) trashcans inspired by soda pop.

The first is a coca-cola trash can and the second is Dr.Pepper, the Dr.Pepper can has a bit of a nostalgia factor because although the sides of the can are a modern image, the lid is an old fashioned pop bottle lid with the old time 10 2 4 image. Previously all my recolors have been done by my creating a PNG type graphic file in photoshop, however the trascans came out horrid looking (extremely pixelated) using this method. So this time I used a DDS file and it looks much better. I think I will try this method again. The reason I include this particular information is in case it might help someone else having a problem with a recolor.


P.S. to go along with the coke trashcan, here is a link to the coke bed I made a few days ago.

EDIT 02/25/2005: Adding two more trash cans that were mentioned in the replies, Pepsi and Redbull. The hardest part about this line of trashcans is finding images that lend themselves to the format.

EDIT 02/26/2005: Added another 2 trashcans by request. Starbucks and Sunkist. The Sunkist uses an image of a real orange for the lid.

EDIT 03/18/2005: By request 7up and Sprite being added.

vindrus_popcan_trashcan.rar contains Coke and Dr. Peppper
vindrus_drinkcan_trashcans2.rar contains Red Bull and Pepsi
vindrus_drinkcan_trashcans3.rar contains Starbucks and Sunkist
vindrus_beveragecantrashcan4.rar contains 7Up and Sprite
