CEP-EXTRA for EDUKATE bookshelf plus recolors

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a simple CEP-EXTRA that will allow you to independently change the colors of the shelves and books of the EDUKATE Shelf by Fun in the Sun. As shipped with the Teen Style Stuff Pack, there is only one recolorable subset which includes both the shelves and books as one recolorable unit.

REQUIREMENTS:

The Teen Style Stuff Pack, as the original game code this CEP-EXTRA alters is in that SP.

The CEP . CEP-EXTRAS are just an extension of this virtually indispensible tool, not standalone fixes. Also, any recolors made for this object will be considered recolors of a Maxis object, which of course requires the CEP.



Please note that there is a special installation procedure for these files in order for them to work.

dARE_CEP_BookcaseEdukate-ProgramFiles.package: put into C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\zCEP-EXTRA.
dARE_CEP_BookcaseEdukate-Documents.package: put into \Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\zCEP-EXTRA


Also included are a "starter set" of EDUKATE recolors. I say starter set because, to the best of my knowledge, there are no existing recolors for the books of this shelf. Existing recolors of the shelves should work just fine. This recolor package goes into your Downloads folder, as usual.
