This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I got so tired of seeing the same old white & yellow dishes that I decided to make some new textures for them

You can only have one set installed at any time because thse replace the standard game textures - there simply isn't any way to have multiple choices. Wouldn't that be nice, though!

I've included several colors as well as a "base" white texture that you can use to make your own colors from if you don't happen to like the ones I did. You'd recolor it in your paint program, then use SimPE to replace the textures in my package with your textures. It's very easy to replace the textures & everything else is already in the file. You can find my mini-tutorial on how to do this here



PS - I've added EatingUtensils - this will change the eating knife, fork & spoon to a gold color rather than the silver that's in the game. You could also change the color by starting SimPe, extracting the texture, coloring t to whatever you want & then import it back into the package. This may not affect the birthday cake fork

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

This is really a simple change but these are really neat in game, and are a beautiful touch, thanks so much for them.

Great idea! These all look wonderful (but the blue checkered one is my favourite) - thank you for sharing!

So I must download the plate base and one recolour right? I thought the utensils looked black? I want them to be shiny and silver.

thank you

What about the thousands of wonderful men and women who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?

smurfrevolt - You don't need the base. Just download whatever color you want. (The base is only there for people who want to create their own...for the basic simmer it's not needed.)

Thanks so much for this, Morague. Simple, yet beautiful.

These are really great! I downloaded Wheat. How do save this on my profile as one of my "Fave Downloads"? I have a feeling I'll want to change colors often. :p

BTW, the only smilies that work are the ones with : : around them. and others like that don't work. (They work here but look at the first paragraph.)

I picked the blue checked as I like that one the best (will go with most kitchens too). Appreciate your sharing this. I will enjoy using this in my game as I am tired of those white plates I have a hard time finding when one of my sims put it on a white surface-ack.. Thanks bunches :-)

Very nice colors! Now with a simple change of which plates are enabled through Sims2PackCleanInstaller I can have different dinnerware for every family. I love the way they match the decor and style of each family.
