Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've had this set of carpets and wall paints hanging around my Downloads folder for a while, just a big set I made for myself so I'd have a full spectrum of carpets and paints. Couple folks were asking for a wider range of paints so I decided to make some matching tile floors and upload the whole shebang.

There are 81 paints, 81 carpets, and 81 tiles, for a total of 243 files. You'll never want for a plain wall or floor in a certain colour again, as I've tried to cover a really full spectrum, so no matter the decor, one of these will match.

These should be really useful for people who need solid backgrounds for contests or to use as basic backdrops to cut sims out from backgrounds for Photoshopping.

By the way, all the files have descriptive filenames telling which are which, and the floors and walls use the same names for their colours, so if you want to just keep the blues and the greens and just the lighter browns, you can do that by looking at the filenames.

Want them with molding? You don't need to have 15 different versions of every wall to have all the moldings you might want - get these 3D moldings that you can add to every wall, by MaryLou and Numenor! Click here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=181834

Mac Users Note: - Because these were made ages ago before I knew there was a problem with making walls different than the template size, the walls in this set will not work for Mac users. Sorry, but I made these a long time ago before anyone knew what caused that, and I don't have time to fix 81 walls for the tiny percentage of people who use Macs to play. You can, however, still use all of the floors just fine, just not the walls.

Thanks to:
  • 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.

Omg I love these. They are even textured which are great because most of the carpets don't come textured. Thanks so much for these you are the best.

I think my downloads folder burped after I unzipped all these files to it.

I always get done cleaning out my downloads folder when someone pops up with something like this. I hate to do it, but these are too good to resist. Great job, this must have taken for-ever.

pansystanzie89 - I edited the first post to link to some decorative moldings you can add to any wall. Way better (and nicer-looking, as they're 3D) solution if you would like moldings on certain walls.

These are great! Thank you so much, HP. But because there are so many of them, could you please make a collection file? It might be easier to find the matching ones that way. Thanks again!
