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.

Whilst working on the K&B kitchen stuff I noticed there was a steel Super Sucker Vent so I just had to do all the appliances & counter in steel to match. I also added the SimLine Wall Phone (which also recolours the desk phone), SimSafety V Burglar Alarm & SmokeSentry SmokeSniffer 3000. As a bonus I also recoloured the Free Time Instant Giant bar stool in Steel.

For some unknown reason to get the colours to show for the phone handset,
you must first put the phone in your game and have a Sim use it.

There are 2 ways you can change the colour of the phone in game.

1. Put the phone in your game and have a Sim use it.
Then use the swatch (design) tool to recolour the base and handset separately.

If a Sim doesn't use the phone first you can recolour the base but not the handset this way.

2. Put the coloured phone in your game and have a Sim use it, the handset will automatically
change colour.

Not EP's or SP's need for the SimLine Wall & Desk Phone, SimSafety V Burglar Alarm & SmokeSentry SmokeSniffer 3000 they are all basegame objects.

Kitchen & Bath is required for all other recolours except the Instant Giant bar stool you'll need Free Time for that!
