Time to get back to retro! In my case, that means creating more Midcentury Modern (MCM) themed build material.

I have always longed for more colors of the "Stone Cold Truth" flooring Maxis created. The original isn't bad, but it is very orange, and (to me) very difficult to use. I think it's a great texture and deserves more life! Hence my creations.



Here you get 12 new colors of the floor. I found an image from Google (probably searching for midcentury terrazo colors) and stumbled across the inspiration. I sampled the colors in each swatch and, voila!



You do get a new "burnt orange" color, which is not too far off from the Maxis original. Each individual file is named so you know which one is which (should you choose to omit any). I hope you like them and have some use for these floors in your Sim homes!
