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.

I'm currently dealing with the issues which arise from conflicts between the Seasons EP and my custom trees. And amidst the flashing blue chaos that is Pleasantview, I have been learning how to do new stuff. One of my first priorities has been to figure out how to make Seasons-compatible tree recolors. Echo posted a great tutorial showing how to make working clones of Seasons trees, and I've adapted her method to make working tree recolors.

So here is my first result. It's a recolor of the Japanese maple which gives the tree a leafier appearance and really makes it look quite different. As a recolor it's nothing special, but it changes correctly with the passing seasons.
