Transparent Grid Floor Tiles

UPDATED with 3 new requested tiles for each colour

These sturdy transparent framed tiles are ideal for nosey or paranoid sims, who always like to know what's going on beneath their feet
Or maybe you've got a sim or two who like to stargaze in bed? Aw, how romantic...
Anyhow...
Each tile is made from the finest materials and incorporates the revolutionary new stealthy "I spy" toughened glass, which is virtually indestructible.
On a cautionary note though, do not under any circumstances allow rampaging gnomes to get anywhere near this flooring.

Original - Set of 4
2 tiles provided for each colour, one horizontal and one vertical
(see main picture)

Stainless steel
Black
Lightwood
White


For use on upper floors. You can put them at ground level, but as with most transparent tiles, you will just see the colour Blue in the transparent gaps, which doesn't look very nice.

There are now 5 tiles for each colour. You will find them in the Build / Flooring / Tiles section. The way these directional tiles get placed on the lot, depends on your camera angle, you might select the horizontal one, and when placed it looks like the vertical one, either view the lot from a different angle, or simply select the opposite tile to the one you want - bit quirky but there you go.

Since the original files aren't large, I've included them all in one rar file
The new tiles are zipped by colour and each rar contains one of each of the following
Square, Diagonal 1 & Diagonal 2



Each package begins with the work Muse (That's me ) so it should be easy for you to find and delete any that you don't want.

Known Issue - I noticed in my buy catalogue, that the Black Diagonal 1 tile shows up as a purple transparent square, but can be used in the game as normal. I re-examined the package, but all seems to be as it should be and as far as I can tell, it doesn't cause any game problems. As you can see from the screenshots, it looks normal in the game, its just the buy icon that's odd. (It's the one my servo is standing on, in the screenshots Just thought I'd mention it, incase you see the same thing, lol

To install - unzip to your EA downloads folder

Please do not clone or recolour these tiles.
You can use them in you upload lots (except pay sites) providing a link back to this thread is supplied.

Thank you and enjoy

I love these tiles! I was thinking, though, that you could add 3 more tiles in each color which would make them totally complete.

1. with the outer border and a diagonal from top right to bottom left
2. with the outer border and a diagonal from top left to bottom right
3. with just the outer border

Any chance you would do that?

I'm really pleased you like the grid tiles, and
thanks for the request, (sorry I didn't notice it when you posted)

I've started updating this thread now
I'm only doing one colour set at a time, as the gnomes get confused otherwise and mix the tiles up, but whole set of new ones you asked for should be available by the end of the day.
