Cannot Delete Object Recolours

Problem

  • Recolours of objects can't be deleted using the trash can icon.

Cause

This is a known issue since the game patch - the little dustbin icon is no longer present for recolours in the game, making deletion of single colours impossible.

MaxoidKane posted the following on the official forums:

Many of you have noticed that since Open For Business, you are no longer able to delete individual custom design modes in-game (such as an instance of a recolor). This is due to a critical code change we needed to make to our file system to ensure the game would work properly. The benefits of this code change far outweigh this unfortunate side effect. We strongly urge you to install the patch regardless of this issue.
You still have the option to disable an entire group of items by using The Sims 2 Content Manager Tool found on our website (http://thesims2.ea.com/getcoolstuff...ntentmanager ). However, you cannot delete individual design modes for objects released after Nightlife. For users comfortable using Non-EA created and supported programs, the open source program, SimsPE, can isolate specific strings and package files from the game in order to delete them. We understand that is not an ideal workaround for most users.
Our next patch will still include this code change as will future Expansion Packs going forward. Again, we apologize for this inconvenient issue but it was necessary to make critical pieces of the code work properly.

Solution

Place the object you want to delete recolours for on the lot. Then use the Design Tool, click on the item, and delete the recolours in the selection menu for recolouring the existing object. This may not work for all objects.
