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.

Title: Toybox Recolours Matched to the Craftmeister Cheap Bed


- To provide a set of toybox recolours matched to the Craftmeister single bedframes, including the additional colours provided by my EA Cheap Bed Recolour Fix.

- To make the recolours as seamless as possible, in spite of the very eccentric texture mapping that infests the basegame toybox. Note that in applying the cheap bed's textures to the toybox I found that the knots looked very unrealistic, so this set uses "select" or clear wood only, apart from the unfinished plywood recolour.

- To supply some additonal toybox recolours that may be useful, all based on basegame textures.

- Because a toybox recolour set would be incomplete without the traditional cedar chest, to provide a red cedar toybox matched to the high end Chesterstick Dresser "lightwoodcurly" colour.

- To recolour the bottom surface where the toys are situated, which gives each recolour an authentic look.

- As usual, to ensure that the package sizes are as small as possible.

Contents List

Nine matches to the Craftmeister Single Bed - Beige, Brown Oak, Dark, Honey Oak, Light, Purple, Red, White, Yellow Pine

Twelve other wood recolours - Black, Cherry, Dark Grey, Dirty Medium Oak, Light Grey, Mahogany, Medium Oak, Medium Walnut, Plywood, Red Oak, Santa Maria, White Pine

One match to the basegame Chesterstick Dresser - Red Cedar
