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.
In December of 2014, EA updated six of the base game doors, that originally only came in white, with seven additional colours. These were; two light brown shades; two dark brown shades; red; green; grey. There were an additional six matching base game door designs, however, that were NOT updated with the additional colours and are still only available in white, until now!

This file adds the seven addition colours to the following doors;
  • Simple Two-Panel Door
  • Wooden Five-Panel Door
  • Wooden Three-Panel Door
  • Overdesigned Window
  • Kablammo Superdoor
  • Yes Siree Door!
Images of all of the door colour additions are attached, grouped by either door design or colour, with the original white shown first.

The additional colours all show under the original door thumbnails in the catalogue, listed after the original white and for the same price. I have matched them as close as I possibly could and I like to think I did a damned good job at it.

The original white textures of some of these doors have a white and orange swatch, whilst others have a solid white swatch. This also occurs on some of the doors that were officially updated and so I chose not to alter this as it would have unnecessarily have made the file larger in size.

27-11-21 Additional file added to only include the missing red and green colours since EA have now added the other wooden shades themselves. Brought to my attention by MTS user Eehna.
18-03-16 Updated to fix doors reverting to white at maximum zoom. They will now retain their correct colours.

Was always an embarrassment when the door had only the White colouring. Thanks for taking the time for correcting EA's oversight! Now I am happy!

It's recently been brought to my attention by @Eahna that these recolours a) no longer work in the game and b) are no longer needed other than the red and green colours.
As such, I have uploaded a new version today which now only includes the red and green colours for the affected doors.
Unless you haven't updated your game to the point where EA added in these colours themselves, please delete the old version if you're using it and replace it with the new file instead.

Please be aware that you will need to replace any of the doors from the old package as the game will see this new version as a completely different object.
