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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Simple, basic recolors of the Maxis highchair and potty, that match my cribs and changing tables.

The chair frame (or legs, or whatever you should call it) comes is black and white, and the seat part comes in the 16 colours shown in the pic. The same 16 colours are available for the potty, and the seat part comes in black and white.

I used SaraMKirk's dirty template for the highchairs, so they should get dirty like the Maxis chairs, but I haven't really tested in game, so I'm not 100 % sure that it actually works. If it doesn't, let me know and I can try to do something about it (although my creating skillz are very limited).

I had an idea, if it wouldn't be too much trouble maybe you could recolour the toy box too... Just putting that out there.

for those who don't have the potty recolors showing: make sure you have CEP installed. Would make sense because in base game highchair already has recolors and potty doesn't...

An_na: Great set! added it to my favourites

I have CEP installed. The highchairs show up fine but I do not have the potty recolours. The other recolours in this set show up fine. It would be great if someone could come up with a solution to this (since it seems to be affecting not just me) as I LOVE these colours and really want to use them in my game; it's a great set, An_na.

If it helps, I have Sims 2 Deluxe, University, OFB, Seasons, Pets and Bon Voyage installed. I have also tried redownloading the potty recolours.

They're not showing up in mine either. But it's not just these, it's also all the recolors I've downloaded for the potty chair. :P

My only theory is Maxis did not design the pottys to be recolored. *shruggs* I'd really like to have some though!

To fix "the potty chair not showing up in game problem", try downloading the latest CEP package(released 05-18-08), that's what seemed to work for me.

Nice Job, An_na! Patterns can be nice, but not all the time. Sometimes less is more, huh?

Now my nurserys can have a wonderful nice look! Thank you

you need CEP to find the potty recolors since it originally only gives you one option. you can find CEP here
