Just like the title says. When I try to recolor the double bed that came with University via the object workshop, I get an empty package. No textures to recolor. This doesn't happen with anything else I try to recolor and I have the CEP (even though I don't think this object needs it)

Is there any reason this might be happening?
Is there a way to fix it?
If not, if there another way to recolor maxis objects other than Sim PE?

(does anyone even still play TS2?)

The bedding or the frame? The bedding is slave to the Colonial Ironwood Double bed.
This info can be found in your CEP Documentation folder, CEP_Objects_list.

The frame. Bedding comes out fine but when I try to recolor the frame it comes up as an empty package with no textures (or anything else) to extract and edit.

The bed does recolor fine using version 73_44. Maybe double check you have the correct file paths.

Ok so I'm not sure why I didn't already have the latest version since it was posted all the way back in 2009 but I went ahead and updated. Unfortunately, now I'm having worse problems.

Before, when I started SimPE, I would get a popup saying that I had newer expansions than my version was built for (I have the University Life Collection that comes with University, Ikea Home Stuff, and Teen Style Stuff) but always ignored it and rarely had issues with anything I did.

But now when I go into the object workshop, pretty much nothing is available. Aside from some stuff pack content, no maxis items show up.

edit: the update required a manual install, which I don't have experience with. I replaced all the files in the SimPE program file folder with the new files from the update I downloaded. Is this correct?

(The more I think about it the more I'm sure this is an issue with University Life Collection since University is the expansion the bed came with. If I installed University via the University expansion, instead of the University Life Collection pack, I wonder if I wouldn't be having this issue.)

That definitely looks like your file locations aren't set up properly. Go to Extras -> Properties (or Settings? I forget) -> File Table and make sure all the EPs are pointing to the right place, and that all are ticked to enable them.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
