This is a default

*Note: Updated the file with a slightly improved patterned plate

Recently omglo uploaded the Control Dining Plate and Bowl Mod. Found here: which allows you to change plate and bowl designs by simply changing the design on the control plate and bowl. I couldn't wait to recolour it.

Instead of just one default, you can now have seven different choices.
This mod does not change the serving bowl and will work with either the maxis bowl or a normal default as well as the 7 choices here. Your regular default just needs to load first.

Don helped, eating more bowls of breakfast cereal than he ever dreamed of.

To use simply pick one of the numbers on the control plate and the control bowl. You can have the plate and bowl match or mismatch. The plate or bowl grabbed by the sim will reflect whatever you have set the control plate and bowl to be. You need one of each on the lot.

This default recolour requires the files zzzBowl-Color-Choice.package and the zzzPlate-Color-Choice.package from omglo's mod to work. Those are the Control plate and bowl.
I recoloured the Dish-TexturePack.package. To use my recolours simply remove the Texture file that comes in the mod and replace it with my recoloured texture file. You can't have two texture files. If at any time you want to go back to omglo's plain recolours switch the texture file back to theirs.
