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.

Ah, the Seasons windows. I like these because they're double-sided, so the outsides can be a different color than the insides. I really, truly wish that ALL of the windows were double-sided. But then, if wishes were horses, we'd all ride, right? Anyway, here they are, all the usuals:

The bigger pic above is of the outside of the flowerbox window, obviously. The smaller surrounding pics are the top third of the inside of the windows. All were taken on an outside sunny wall. The inside colors when they are actually inside will look deeper and richer, as they should in interior light...but unfortunately I forgot to take a pic, and I don't feel like starting up the game again. *laughs*

These files will also recolor the non-flowerbox "Truth Divider" windows. Both of those windows are two-sided, and this one set of files will give you these color options for both the inside and the outside of the windows.

But perhaps most importantly of all, they will also recolor plasticbox's expanded and "dissected" set of these windows, so that you can have one-tile versions and non-shuttered versions, plus you can, for instance, stick the flowerbox on other, non-related windows or have different shutter and frame colors. If you have that set, you'll have all my color options for many of those pieces, too. I have linked to plasticbox's set on the "Related Pages" tab.

And that's about it. As always, the files are pre-Compressorized and are clearly named so that you can discard the colors you don't want/need. Happy simming!

As a card-carrying member of the iCad fan club, I snagged these the moment I saw 'em. (Like Eviemeli I barely stopped to read the discription before clicking on the Download tab!)

YES!!! Thank you, I love these windows and always wanted more colors. As a side note, since I don't comment very often, you referenced one of my favorite quotes "if wishes were horses" so double thanks!

Nice colors and handy recolors as usual! Thank you!

Wow, I has fans. Y'all are going to make my ego explode, y'know. But thank you all.

@laguna4life: It's one of my favorite quotes, too. I'm glad someone else appreciated it.

@roxmaniac:: Mmmmm, garage doors, yes. I'll bump them up my uploading priority list. I've done the original Nightlife ones (just one window version, the "sunray" one) and the AL one with the round windows. Do you have a preference? If I don't hear back, I'll upload the Nightlife one first.

Thank you so much! I love these windows but the maxis exterior colours were so ugly. Now I can finally use them to my heart's content! I hate to ask, but did you ever think about recolouring the seasons country door to match?
