I have some recolours of the base game Babbling Bougainvillea shrub that I'd like to finish, and that means making them seasons-safe. I've previously cloned and recoloured the rosebush and can follow the seasons-safe cloning tutorial well enough...whichis to say that I can mash the right buttons, but I'm embarrassingly ignorant of what the scenegraph-object-identifier-etc-name-stuff actually means.
I want to share these recolours, but I'd rather not have them be a separate/cloned object. That must be possible, but I can't see how to do it without starting with a clone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cloning seems to be the only way, but by the looks of it, cloning in either of these ways shouldn't give you a new object.

Thanks so much for your answer, simmer22. Echo's tutorial is, in fact, the one I've been following. I don't get how cloning doesn't result in having a clone....wait, could it be as simple as just not checking the "make a stand-alone object" box??
I'm so upsettingly ignorant when it comes to how these objects actually work... >_<
EDIT: I'm working on these shrub recolours again and running into the same problem... I'm still trying to get all the correct resources copied and added to cover all the states, but I think I'll work that out -- the bigger continuing problem is that when I clone without making a stand-alone, it gives the original, in-game shrub the custom-content asterisk. That was why I ended up doing the separate object the first time, but is there a way to avoid that?
