Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
!!My first upload!!

Hi, I was just building another version of Hogwarts and needed some castle walls and floors, so I recolored some Maxis ones (It's so difficult to find decent textures that are not only for private use =) )
When I did them, I thought I'd share them, cause I've already downloaded so much great stuff from this site.


The set includes:
-4 darker versions of Maxis' tuscan stone floor + 1 bright grey
-4 darker versions of Maxis' medieval stone floor
-one cobblestone (credits go to www.noctua-graphics.de for this excellent free seamless texture)

-one grey version of a Maxis wall (don't know the english name)
-one dark version of the same wall

Hope you like them - and if you do, don't forget to push the thanks button (remember, its my first upload!!)

These are really nice, you did a good job with the shading on the dark walls, which I really like. I will use these for my University college buildings and other things. Great job!

If you have a house which you want creating, PM with a link to the plans/picture, and I will message back with comments saying if I can do it or not. I will try alter the design before I say I can't do it.

I was just fussing yesterday that I didn't have enough castle/stone walls and floors. These are perfect ... just what I was looking for!

[insert generic compliment here]

No, really, this is just outstanding work. The praise probably means nothing to you, coming from someone who could not possibly do this in a thousand years. I'm just a monkey with a typewriter, but you, you've got some Shakespeare here.
