Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
WHEW! I'm finally done with my carpet collection. I didn't think I was ever going to get done. Carpet is much harder to make than I anticipated. So anyway, this is a collection of 50 shag and saxony carpets. Took forever to get the shag carpet to look right without jeopardizing the integrity of the texture, but the results, I think, were worth it. In the game, it looks like you could sink your tootsies right in that shag carpet. I also made some saxony carpet, which looks smoother, but still has a carpet texture which is a must to me. I can't stand it when carpet looks like paint thrown on the floor. Each carpet was made from it's own sample, so each one is unique. I hope you enjoy my carpet!!

I know some sim tootsies that will indeed be looking to sink into their new shag carpets... another great set! Thanks for taking the extra time to get the look/details down which is something I always love about your stuff, I know your a "get it right" instead of a "get it finished" person which I respect. Thanks again for sharing!

They really do look like you could sink your toes into them ... and these are just the pics which, we all know, don't look as good as actual "in game" does, so I can't wait to see these! Your attention to detail is amazing and very, very much appreciated. Thank you so much for putting this set together and for sharing it! Is there such a thing as a 5+? 'cause this certainly deserves it!

Edit: forgot to say ... I love these colors! Couldn't have been better if I was hand selecting them! Thank you again.

These are beautiful. :3 I love carpeting for my Sims' houses and can never have enough colors, and I love the effort you put into your textures. I really hate the paint-on-the-floor look too. ^^

Thanks for making these. I have trouble finding carpets to go with some downloaded walls, but you have enough colors to match almost anything.

By the way, where did you get the window that's in your screenshots? I really like it.

I've made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims1ModsByCorylea.html

The window is from Windkeeper at TSR. They are pay, but I always get them when they are rotated as freebies.

I don't think you need an expansion for these. I made them with the homecrafter using the maxis template so they shouldn't need an expansion. Do you have any of my other flooring, if yes, do they show up okay? These are all cataloged in carpet, they shouldn't be anywhere else. I can't imagine why they won't show up. You did double click on them after unzipping them to install them right? You can't just unzip and move them to your downloads folder.

Okay, I had conformation from someone that they ARE showing up in game. Please check again if you have them or check to see if you installed them correctly.

thats a lot of carpets, and they all look great. Thanks so much for sharing your obvious talent with us.

Have you ever found that your sims suffer because of your bad mood? Do you suppose that they may spread their good mood onto you? Just a thought!
