This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Many users asked me if the Fiat Punto (Maxis add-on) was recolourable, and the answer was always "no"... until now!

This car is *the same* as the one published by Maxis (the original - not recolourable - has been put by Maxis in free download at theofficial UK site).
My *recolourable* version uses the same GUID (and the same original filename) as the Maxis one: therefore it will override (and hopefully overwrite) the original Maxis Punto; it would be pointless to have in the Downloads two identical car, one recolourable (mine) and one not (Maxis')...

This is the only really recolourable Punto existing (I've searched a lot, and I couldn't find any other one: If I have missed it, please let me know). I only could find an Orange Punto by Padu, that is actually a (bad) clone of the original, not recolourable car: DON'T USE IT: IT WILL BREAK THIS RECOLOURABLE VERSION. Hopefully, Padu will make a normal recolour package out of his beautiful orange texture.

This car can be recoloured with Object Workshop, like any other *custom* object; you can choose to recolour the external paint and/or the interior. If you upload your recolours to MTS2, be sure to put the link to THIS thread in the "Used Mesh" field.

The recolours created will not only apply to your car in "lot mode", but it will also be visible when in Neighborhood View!

CREDITS to Maxis for the original car; to Numenor (that's me! ) for the "recolourable" version.

License: though the original car is by Maxis, this special version was made by me, and therefore all my Copyright Agreement applies to it: you CAN create and post your recolours anywhere, or even sell it, but credits to me and a link to this thread must provided; you CAN't repost, clone or publish anywhere thise recolourable Punto (you can do whatever you like with the original Maxis Punto, of course); you CAN include this recolourable punto in your lots, as long as they are uploaded to free sites and credits are given to me (along with a link to this thread).
