But enough of that! Onward! Since I can't even create, much less upload, the project that I want to make yet, we do this instead: I use these house numbers often, and I wanted more of them. (I knew I had over 700 fonts on my computer for a reason...) I now have hundreds of recolors of those suckers. So I thought I'd toss these basic-but-nice brass ones up here.
Now, this could potentially put 60 recolors of these numbers into your Downloads folder. Even though they are very small-in-size files (Between 4KB and 11KB each), unless you're flipping insane like me, you probably don't want all 60 of them. So, I uploaded each style that I picked out separately. Pick and choose amongst them as you will. Here are in-game pics of all the individual numbers, so you know in advance what each numeral in a given set looks like:
And here are Poor Richard style numbers on a house, so that you can get an idea of the relative size of the numbers.
For these to work, you will need the mesh. The mesh isn't included in any of the downloads. So, follow the linky above or on the Download tab if you don't already have the original numbers in your game. (If you don't want to keep all of the original numbers, the mesh file is the silver 0 of the original set; its file name is simply "numbers." All the others in the original download are recolors, as are these, and obviously you don't have to have all the original recolors for these new ones to work.) They can be hard to spot in the Buy Mode catalog, but they are in Decorative/Miscellaneous. You will see a thumbnail of the original silver 0, and they cost $10, so it should be toward the front of the catalog in that section unless you have a buttload of cheap stuff already in there.
And that be it! Now go forth, brave young Simmer, and number thy houses!
PS: Like I said, I have a lot more of these lurking in my Downloads folder. I've made them in all sorts of colors and patterns, from basic to quite freaky (Tie-dye house numbers, anyone?) So, if you might have a request-y kind of thing, I may have already made it in some way. So just ask. Seriously. I don't usually bite, but if I do, rest assured that I've had my rabies shot.
