A gift for Alawren.

Alawren was looking for recolours of the "Career Reward" Better Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd. I thought I would help out and recolour them in AL wood, LACK and MALM colours. I also recoloured the Basic Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd., in AL wood and MALM colours whilst I was at it. I have previously recoloured the Basic Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd. in LACK colours, you can find them HERE.

If like you hate waiting for your Sims to reach the top of their career before you can get the career rewards, I strongly recommend you check out the Buyable Aspiration & Career Rewards by Sophie-David.

These are not base game compatible, Freetime is required!

Basic Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd.:
Found: Buy mode > Hobbies > Exercise. Price: §500.

Better Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd.:
Found: Live Mode > Rewards > Career Rewards.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: Basic Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd. in LACK Colours. Hair recolours by me not available, sorry.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour charts are included in the zip files.

Additional Credits: SimPE - CEP - GIMP - Milkshape - UV Mapper - The Compressorizer - Maxis/EA Games and MTS.

Wish I had my USB stick on me so I can transfer it to my non-connected Sims 2 computer. I love that we can now have variety.

Anyone else not getting the ability to recolour the objects? I click the design tool, but I don't get an option to change the colours.

@sims4lufe The zip file is under the 'Files Tab' on the description page, you just click on the file and it will automatically download, you will then need a program like WinRAR, which you can get HERE free. If you look HERE you will find more information about zip files.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their on it.
