EA had some unused diner-style textures for the Nightlife booth, one of them was flamingo pink so this happened  :D  I plan on doing some other recolors for the booth (with the upscale chair and table) which won't be so diner-ish but I couldn't resist Flannah pink.
And this whole set isn't that much different from the originals: everything already came in red / black / blue / pink but the wall lights had to basically stay the same.

I'm pretty sure the wall lights aren't truly recolorable so there's only a default for them.
The bowling rack seen in the previews uses the default - it has some non-recolorable bits so just the recolors will be less-pirate-y than shown above.

shasta_CEP_nl_bowlingrack - the top pulls textures from the Vintage Retro Classic dining table

download seating, bowling, & lighting defaults with completer rcs
download seating recolors only
download bowling recolors only

I ended up making defaults for diner part i to go with part ii above because I went overboard in Matching Everything and no one was surprised.

download part i defaults and completer rcs
download pink counter and bar recolors

Thanks to Goat for the wood textures

I suddenly feel the need to build something like a malt shop or classic diner...anything old-timey.

And I never thought I would download anything that's truly pink, but here I am doing so - funny because I am pretty girly in that always wears a skirt or dress way, but not in that loves pink sort of way (give me black or any shade of blue any day). But, enough rambling on about that...ha ha. :)

Thank you - hope you have a great rest of the week!

Haha my preview is A BIT MUCH! I tried to quiet the pink down some but I always ended up liking the original more than anything else :D
Thank you for your kind words (as usual!) and did you know tumblr is a wonderfully easy place to share images of sims' houses you've decorated or retro diners you've built just sayin'

Shasta! I love this!! I'm not usually a pink sort of person, but somehow pink diners & bowling alleys are just so perfect. And all the extra colours are an added bonus! Thank you! :D

Ah thank you didily! I'm so happy to hear you like the set and I hope you can use some of these! I think we are all kind of surprised that we like the flamingo pink as much as we do haha :D

Yay thank you! :D I know I tell you every other day how much I like Atomic Valley so creepy me was of course was thinking of AV while I did these ^-^

You are not at all creepy. I find it flattering and really appreciate the interest and encouragement. Always gives me a smile, so thank you!

And I may have grabbed these just for AV. :D

I always liked the retro diner vibe of this set and I love that your retextures still capture that (even better, actually). And I'm happy you kept the boomerang and diamond table & counter textures because they're so delightfully retro :D

Ah mrs_mquve I'm so happy to see you here and thank you ♥ I thought I was the only one who liked those original textures but it's nice to hear you do too!? Making rcs of origs is kind of inefficient but it was the best solution I could come up with :B

Where exactly does the CEP file go?
Oct. 21st, 2016 09:47 am (UTC)
Hello! Your file path will vary if you don't have the UC but mine is here:
Documents > EA Games > The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection > zCEP-EXTRA
If you installed Numenor's CEP extras then your game should already have this folder :)

Even though it says Yeti Gift Shop, nothing here is for sale and nothing here is for Yeti enthusiasts.

I'm still learning but I hope you find something you like!
