So I have been patiently waiting and waiting for more CEPs to appear, since they haven't I decided to take matters into my own hands yet again. I did a ton of CEPs. I mean a TON!

So for the CEPs this is what you need to know:

Please install the CEP by Numenor and the Extras first.

You will find 2 subfolders in the file, "MyDocuments" and "ProgramFiles".

Open the "MyDocuments" folder and move the file to C:\Users\<username>\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\zCEP-EXTRA
Open the "ProgramFiles" folder and move the file to C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\zCEP-EXTRA

(Copied from HugeLunatic because I'm lazy.)

Now let's get down to business. I DID NOT take a picture of everything I did. Why? Well you've seen it countless times. All I did was add subsets, repositoried it to another object OR made it recolorable.

The wood and fabric are now completely different subsets. What? You don't believe me! Rude!

See? :P

The OFB Medium House Armoire is now slaved to its Base Game Counterpart.

Touch of Teak Medium Dresser is now slaved to its Base Game Counterpart.

Okay I went through every painting. Yes, every painting. Every single damn one.

I took most and gave them subsets. The exception to this being the AL How Eloquent, Tribly's Delight and Smitty Takes Flight. Those three are now recolorable, as well as subsets. This is just a sampling of what is inside what I'm giving you.

The cushion is now recolorable separately!

Plants with subsets? Have you gone made? Er, possibly. I made the greenery (foliage, etc) the new subset. I was always recoloring the pots but not the greenery.
The Falling Fern is now slaved to the Fanciful Fuzzy Fern. They had the same textures so, why not?
The More Tragic Than Thou (the shrub in the terracotta pot) and The Titan Arum are now recolorable.

Painting and easel are now two different subsets.

This barstool I have fought with for over 6 months. I never gave up (I might have detoured occasionally) and it is finally two subsets.

Yay, more subsets!

It always ticked me off that the Dining Chairs and barstool had separate subsets but the table didn't. So I decided to fix that.

I didn't touch the most used subsets, I think with the exception of the plants. The new subsets for the paintings are the frames. The wood for both the sofa and the barstool. The talking table I made the tabletop the new subset. I hope I've explained this properly. The CEPs with nothing at the end can be thrown in the Documents directory listed above.


Apartment Life
Base Game
(This one has the most)
Bon Voyage

NOTE: If you have frame recolors for paintings that are included in this CEP the frames will no longer show. This goes for any new subset on any new CEP. Recolors made before my CEP will work with the old subset but not the new subset.

Now when I break something I have to fix it! So here are things I fixed plus some new stuff.
NOTE: For the paintings they are dropped to the floor since I have Apartment Life. I already had too much on my plate to do Base Game compatible versions. You can download and poke the meshes yourself if you want them to be BG compatible. Sorry, but I didn't even finish with half the stuff I wanted to get done with this.

CTNutmeggers Talking Table Fix
Talking Table Recolors
(Goats woods, my standard 5 colors. These are redos of the ones I had released earlier)

CuriousB Painting Fix

I think it was thejim over at MTS2 who made most of the paintings 1 tile. Well since I did all the subsets I just redid them all.


Fixed Separated Paintings

Resized Plants
I forgot to add The Not so Harmless Cactus into the file! This has been fixed.
If you've downloaded it before but just want the Cactus grab it here.

Phaenohs Piano Fixed

MsBarrows Sofa Fix

Mutske Deco Paintings Fix

PlasticBox Plants Fix
I forgot to mention these may be uncategorized. Make sure you add them to a collection folder or if you already have no worries. They'll just overwrite the old ones. Sorry about that.

Plant Foliage Recolor Fix
(Thanks to currantpotpie and Yuxi for the plant colors)

Regulars Only Dining Chair

ShoYou Shoji Screen Recolors
(There's 4 ricepaper and 10 wood recolors.)
The textures are by Goat, Engelchen and Dreamfall via Io.

Fruitless FigTree Pot Recolors

The Simulated Succulent Pot Recolors

I still have to fix some other things but I just wanted to get these uploaded before I did more.

Credits: CTNutmegger, MsBarrows, Io (for the dreamfall textures used), Yuxi, Currantpotpie, Mutske, PlasticBox, HugeLunatic, Engelchen, Phaenoh and probably more I'm forgetting!

As always have fun and enjoy!

I seriously just went 'oh no I just started loading my game!' followed by 'oh good this doesn't affect most of the stuff I usually use.'

Still gonna grab everything because subsets, man.
Feb. 23rd, 2014 10:59 pm (UTC)
Yes, I think I found my next addiction. Hopefully I got everything that's usable. :)
Feb. 23rd, 2014 10:34 pm (UTC)
...the sheer awesomeness of this post just broke my brain. I can only echo Hat: SUBSETS! :D
Feb. 23rd, 2014 11:00 pm (UTC)
Uhm, hold on let me find some duct tape for the brain leakage!

I'll just say this:

This is so awesome!

A little late Inzey, by 17 years. :P

I'm glad you like it though.

Aww, I love you too, Sly. It's partly your fault that I did all this. (Really, I just wanted subsets!)
Feb. 24th, 2014 12:26 am (UTC)
You just pump out these piles of AWESOME :D
Feb. 24th, 2014 12:38 am (UTC)
It's all those gnomes and skunks I have roaming around. They really do all the work. :D

Wow...just wow!

My download finger just got a serious workout, and loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for all of this. My eyes are still like 'Whoa', so much stuff to focus on...haha.

I've said it before, but you're just awesome. :)
Feb. 24th, 2014 01:41 am (UTC)
*massages Penelope's download finger* Sorry but uh, not really.
You're welcome. :)

Aww, shucks, thanks! <3
Feb. 24th, 2014 02:34 am (UTC)
Awesome. I see some stuff I was wishing had 2 subsets. :)

Which reminds me: any existing recolors I may have would need to be redone to get the 2 subset choices with the design tool. Hmmmm. Maybe I'll just get around to doing some new ones!
Feb. 24th, 2014 02:56 am (UTC)
If the the frame was recolored with a painting it would have to be redone for it to show up. Unfortunately that is the downside to these CEPs. My plan was to give options when I uploaded but it became a much bigger project than I had initially thought it was going to be. I never do anything small. One day I shall learn that talent. Ha!

Sweet cuppin' cakes, what a fabulous set of subsets!

"Sweet cuppin' cakes"

That seriously made me giggle!

These are marvellous, but I would like to ask how they will affect existing recolours - will they all need to be remade? :)
Mar. 1st, 2014 02:19 pm (UTC)
The only recolors that have to be remade is for the new subsets. Any canvas recolors for the paintings will show and the same goes for the pots, fabrics, etc.:)

Hello hafi! First of all, thank you very much for this set of things I've wanted since forever, everything is great! Second, how do I recolor things with added subsets? For instance, the Johnny Gnome ptg now shows in game with frame and canvas sets but SimPe still just shows it as all-in-one? I've cleared SimPe's cache and restarted it, both your files are in the correct location... What next?
Thanks again :D
Mar. 3rd, 2014 07:17 pm (UTC)
Do you have SimPE directed to your CEP folder? If not, set it under Extra > Preferences > Files Table. It should be a simple matter of clocking but you may have to add in both CEP folder locations (the one in documents and program files).

The frame still pulls from the original image, however. I didn't see the point in adding a new texture for the frames or even separating the frame portion from the painting.
Mar. 15th, 2014 07:46 pm (UTC)
This is fabulous! Thank you for sharing <3
Mar. 18th, 2014 04:57 am (UTC)
First off just let me say that this is amazing. Well all your stuff is but I particularly like the CEP's as I am a picture addict too.

I went to fix all my frame recolors of NL's "That Place Over There" painting but in SimPe it still only show's one subset. In the game buy mode there are two but since SimPe only shows one I can't recolor the frames.

Since I have no separate frame recolors of it I can't be sure if its a SimPe issue or a CEP issue. I was wondering if anyone else has the same trouble. Perhaps if you had the time you could check it out.

Hate to ask as you create so many lovelies for us but it's driving me bonkers. All the other paintings I've fixed the frame subset works great so thanks so much for that. :)

Re: Mindboggling
I just tried it and it shows two subsets for me in SimPE. Please make sure that you have everything in the proper folders and that you have SimPE directed towards both of your CEP folders in preferences. Sometimes it helps reloading object workshop. If this still doesn't work I'm stumped.

You're welcome.

I downloaded the frame recolors and CEP for "Johnny Gnome", then decided I wasn't going to use the frame recolors and deleted them. Now the frame is showing as the shade of blue that's used for broken objects and missing textures in the game, although it's not flashing. The custom recolors of the game have the same broken blue frame. I've tried deleting and re-downloading the CEP multiple times, but it's still not fixed. Is there any solution for fixing this?
Apr. 24th, 2014 04:40 am (UTC)
Do you delete recolors from inside the game? I've found it best to always delete recolors from outside of the game. Now my next question is, have you deleted your cache file since you did this?

I've never had this occur. You would think I have seeing as I switch my downloads out constantly. The Johnny Gnome frame is blue, so you mean it's flashing blue. It almost sounds like you have part of the CEP but not all. Do you have them in the locations they should be in? That is all my questions. I can't help until I know exactly what's going on in your game. Flashing blue usually means a missing part.
