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.

Upon seeing HugeLunatic's Small Victorian I was inspired to recolour the Mansion & Garden "Second Empire" built objects, I went a little overboard and ended up with 48 colours. 6 AL Wood, 6 Concrete, 4 Heritage, 5 MALM, 4 Maxis Match, 8 Scallop Siding Match, 2 SEASONS and 13 Maxis Siding Match recolours.

At the request of HeartDeco, I have also included siding and brick walls to match the Maxis 'Scallop Siding', brick walls to match the Maxis 'Siding' and brick walls to match the AL and MALM wood. All are included in the zip files.

As a bonus I included a Glass default replacement recolour of the 'Bay View v.4 Windows by Second Empire Designs' window, so it now matches the other Second Empire windows.

Some Second Empire Add-Ons you might like to check out: M&G Second Empire Roof Edgers by HugeLunatic, Second Empire Window Expansion Set by Leefish, Arch Empire (a Mansion and Garden add on) by suefemme and Second Empire Add-Ons by shakeshaft.

These are not base game compatible, Mansion & Garden is required!
