I suppose this is an etiquette question more than anything else. Just trying to figure out how to arrange multiple, related Sets.

I made a group of Livingroom Sets a few weeks ago: Green Damask Livingroom Sets (http://linna.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=309354). I am working on making Red, Blue and Neutral Sets to round out a full collection of colors.

My main question is what to do about the wood tones? I made 4 new wood tones as well as Upholstery recolors for the Lap of Luxury sofas (to match 3 of the existing Colonial End Tables and a custom white end table).

I want to reuse the wood-tones I have already created, but if I include them in every recolor, people will end up with 3 or 4 copies of each one. Is it acceptable to refer people to the Green Set for the wood-tones? It would be extra work, but I suppose I could create separate files with just the wood-tones in them for those who don't want the green sets...is that really necessary?

Being new to object recolours, forgive me if my answer misses some key points.

It's my understanding that these new recolours are using the same 4 wood tones as the Green Damask Sets (which are absolutely gorgeous, btw!). If so, why not include the wood textures as a separate file in the new upload and create a link to your green recolours with a note saying something like, "for more recolours, click here".

If you include the same 4 wood recolours with every new set, they wouldn't create a duplicate set for members. Those who download the sets would get a pop-up saying that this file already exists with the option to overwrite the file.

Hope this makes sense! I'm still not quite awake. ;)
