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.

Requested by Macey246.

The Maxis Game Simulator in 7 LACK colours and 3 extra requested colours. If you like IKEA - LACK Colours you might like to check my other LACK recolours HERE & HERE. Don't forget to take a look at Related Uploads for links to some great LACK recolours by other creators.

ETA: Sorry, I should have mentioned to change the colour of the hand controls you need to use the swatch tool, even if you put the recoloured game simulator on your lot. You have to use the swatch tool on each hand control separately, so it is possible to have a different colour hand control for each game playing Sim. Many thanks to imasimfan585 for bring this omission to my attention.

These are base game compatible - no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Electronics > Entertainment. Price: §560.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: Soma Wall-Eye Large Screen FlatPanel Television, Ordinary Day Hairstyle by Cazy, Wrap-A-Round Dress Floral Recolour, Female Hair 74 by CoolSims, LEKSVIK 1 Tile Coffee Table, AL dress recolour and hair recolour not available, sorry.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour chart is included in the zip file.


Additional Credits: SimPE - CEP - GIMP - Milkshape - UV Mapper - The Compressorizer - Maxis/EA Games and MTS.
Also IKEA for the LACK colours and Macey246 for requesting this.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Great recolours, Michelle, thank you

Please can you fix the link to the Leksvik coffee table - it doesn't go anywhere.

EDIT: Link fixed, thank you

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

I always wondered why there was only one color. Thanks for changing that!

I love the idea of this but it is not showing up in my game. I have the sims 2 Universal Collection so I am wondering if it isn't in the right place. If I install it with cleaninstaller will it go to the correct place? I haven't tried that, just put it in my downloads as usual. That has always been the way before.

@ sandya: hey hun, I'm assuming you have CEP installed. To tell the truth I have no idea, I've never installed anything but lots with the Clean Installer and know nothing about the Sims 2 Universal Collection, hopefully someone more experienced will read this and can help or maybe post the question HERE, hope that's the right place. Sorry I can't be of more help to you.

Yeah I do have CEP and most things don't give me a problem, but I have noticed that a few do since I installed UC. I have followed your link to no avail, but I do thank you for your efforts to help me find an answer. Not a mountain to die on, I guess. Thanks again.

@ imasimfan585: Have you tried using the swatch tool to change the colour of the controllers? Please let me know if that works. They change separately so you can actually have 2 different coloured controllers and base at the same time. I probably should have mentioned that in the upload description, sorry, I'll edit the post as soon as possible.
