Hello,
I created some floors using WallEz, and they work fine in game, but I'd like to have all recolors from the same floor inside a single my_floor.package file. Right now each recolor appear in game as if it was a different floor, but I've downloaded a few floors from other creators that have for instance four recolors in one file. I don't mind editing hex code if I have to, but I don't know where to start and I couldn't find information about it anywhere.
Thank you!

Do you mean one package or one thumbnail?

To put stuff in the same package, open it with s4pe and copy + paste.

The thumbnails thing is explained by granthes here: http://forums.sims4.the-prof.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=336

Thank you! I didn't know about the tool s4pe, I've been looking for tools but this one didn't show up in my searches. I do mean the same package. Anyway, the one thumbnail also helps because I plan to upload my creations, and perhaps people don't want all the recolors but it would be useful that the ones they do download group together. Thanks again!

You can also repeat this part of the xml file as many times as you're having floor recolers:

<Floor Price="2" Name="name to display in-game" Description="Description to display">
<Tag Type="Color" Value="Color Tag"/>
<Tag Type="Style" Value="Style Tag"/>
<Swatch Top="#ff0000" Bottom="#0000ff" Middle="#00ff00" />
<Texture Filename="DDS Filename"/>
</Floor>

And of course end with </Package>

Then you will have all your recolers in one package file. (And one thumbnail)
