This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
As requested by Simonut.

I usually do not touch TSR (TheSimsResource) stuff; but this is an exception. Something I have used for years and consider a must have, in my game, windkeeper's Mailbox Cover with Shelf. Funny, I have never recoloured it, but thanks to Simonut requesting it in AL Wood, LACK and MALM colours, I now have. I also included an invisible recolour of the metal, not the wood.

The MESH by windkeeper is NOT included, for the handful of people in the community that do not have it already, you can get it HERE.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Miscellaneous > Miscellaneous Price: §15.



Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour charts are included in the zip files.

Additional Credits: SimPE - CEP - GIMP - Milkshape - UV Mapper - The Compressorizer - Maxis/EA Games and MTS.
