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.

Okay, I need to confess something. I've been hoarding. It's gotten bad. It must be a hundred little tweaks and fixes and defaults that are sitting on my drive by now, nevermind the wood recolour set of doom I'm constantly expanding. Recently I've gone into a deleting fit and gotten rid of everything that kind of matches something, but not really. Now I need to make at least a million recolours before I can ever contentedly play this game again.

Anyway, I'm alive and here's proof:



3 recolours of the "Holy Smoke Stairs" (80§) - you need these for them to work.
They match the 3 colours of the "InvisiBarrier Fencing" that come with the base game.

3 recolours of the "Tornado Solid Steel Fence" (59§)
One of them matches the Holy Smoke stairs.
One matches the Zecutine stairs.
One doesn't match any stairs - but a gate. The "Pigue Pen Gate" had this useless black recolour with no fence to it.
I added a 4th one to go with the "Stairway to Eleven" - for my stairs recolours or just for variety.

2 recolours of the "InvisiBarrier Fencing" (40§)
One is for the normal Zecutine Stairs. God how I hate not having matching fences.
And: I lied. The fence by Spaik I had linked doesn't really match the Stairway To Eleven or my "Stairway To Eleven"-style recolours. I added one that does, though.
I added a 3rd one to go with this. HL's description says it doesn't recolour the glass rail, but it does recolour the actual rail (minus glass). So this fence will match HL's rail with my clear glass in it.



3 recolours of "Zecutine's Step Away With Me Stairs" (100§) - you need these for them to work.
Eh, it's actually 2... but they will match all 3 InvisiBarrier Fencings anyway, because the default glass colour just happens to exactly match that blue fence.



2 more recolours that match the "Stairway To Eleven" stairacase
I like the Stairway To Eleven fence way more than the staircase, so here's a Zecutine and a Holy Smoke recolour to go with it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I assure you that these are OCD-proof. They all have the texture, level of shininess, smell and what have you to go with the thing they were made for. If you don't know why you need three versions of one fence that are all black... delete two. But if you're anything like me, throw them all in and be happy.

Thanks for helping me with my OCD. I had recolored a fence to match the zecutine steps myself but there is so more opportunity with these.
Not actually evil.

You are a completionist after my own heart! Hurray for detail oriented people! I don't envy you the ton of work that goes into fixing all the fiddly little details but am very grateful.

I don't know if I'm the only one having this problem, but I get an error when I try to extract any of your files.

Thank you, thank you! We all benefit from your OCD-ness. Luckily I'm only a wee bit OCD but will get much use out of these.
