This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I love Jgwhiteus's Visible Ceilings and wanted some more basic recolours to use, so I made some, in white, dark and light grey, black, red, and pink with a popcorn ceiling texture.

If you are using a cruddy graphics card and/or Radiance Lighting these may not look as good as the screenshot - there will be obvious differences in shading where the tiles come together. This is a common problem with ceiling tiles, and unrelated to my recolours, so please direct any complaints to [email protected] :D

Due to the difficulty in taking screenshots for these (having to exit to neighborhood and re-place every tile to change colours) I've only included a screenshot of the light-grey, with the textures attached. Use your imagination.

You'll notice there are three .package files for each colour included - this is due to the nature of the original mesh. Would have done it in one if I could have, but such is life.

Thanks to:
  • DameSporkalot, for taking the pretty screenshot for me since she's got a nice graphics card and was getting rid of Radiance Lighting anyway.
  • Jgwhiteus and Inge, for the ceiling tiles.
  • Everyone who has contributed to the creation and development of SimPE.
  • MTS2, the rest of the staff, and Delphy, for creating a such a fantastic place to learn and share information, so I could figure out how to do cool stuff like this.

Yay! I love your recolors. I wouldn't've bothered using the tiles before them but now I've got them in my house they're staying there. Makes for prettier pictures. Thankee, HP! *snuggleglomp*

Thanks HP! I use the tiles all the time but I only ever use the one white-ish colour, the others are too out there for my houses. I'm glad to have these ones!

PTP - use printscreen or a screenshot program and not the ingame camera for screenshots and you get resolution-sized shots.

Awesome. Thank you so much. I always use ceiling tiles now, but there are only a few colours in the original pack that work in a normal house. These ones are brilliant!

summer_wine, you need to get jgwhiteus's ceiling tiles (linked twice up above) and read the instructions on using them to get this to work in your game. This is a recolour of those tiles.
