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.
Hello fellow simmers !

Here is the game tissue box with a charming flower in a ~kind of~ complete range of colors :

Yellow => Jaune
Black => Noir
Blue => Bleu
Purple => Violet
Orange => Well... Orange, then...
Brown => Marron
Green => Vert
Pink => Rose
Red => Rouge

Now they can match any color theme you pick for your decoration. (Did I already say to you I always choose a main color for every room/home/Sim ? If not, now you know...)

You'll find them in the Decorative >> Miscellaneaous section, and they're slightly more expensive than the original : 5§. (Organic dye is rather expensive, and you don't want your precious Sims to blow their nose with chemically dyied tissues, do you ?)

Polycount : same as original.

I hope some of you will enjoy it...

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love it when creators improve upon what (crap) EA gave us in the game. I didn't even use their tissue box because it was so horribly .......... boring. Now these will perk up every - yes - every room. Thank you for your time, talent and creativity. And thank you for sharing. luff

Gawd, I'm loving S3!!

Thanks for jazzing up the dull tissue box! Are these individual items or are they added to the current tissue box as color choices? It doesn't really matter, I'll still download them.

No, unfortunately they're individual items... That's why I didn't make more of them by the way... I need room for Lemoncandy and BabaYaga great clutter !

Maybe one day soon will we be able to simply make recolors, but for now I don't know of any way to do it but to clone the objects.
Maybe by adding a kind of stencil, as we do with clothes ? But it's a bit advanced technology for me rignt now. (meaning there's no tutoriel on the subject...)

Anyway, I'm happy it pleases you the way it is...

Ah these are so cute, great idea! I don't think we can make non-CASTable items CASTable yet, so cloning is the only way for colors.
