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.
Dirt + Floor Overlay is a so attractive combination ! So when a talented creator dangled the prospect of it, I couldn't resist and came out of my cave...

41 recolours including : dirt covering, dirt tile frame, cracks, holes, litter, manholes, paint splats, puke, stains, steps, tyre tracks and an animated Simlish moving Matrix floor overlay.

You'll need Phaenoh-floor Overlay meshes. Please enjoy her cute and fresh recolours!

These overlays are multi-layerable which means you can place several above each other.
The main feature is you can cover an entire room with the overlay and still be able to direct your Sims to a covered area. Phae worked hard on this feature and I'm really grateful to her.
To make it possible the clickable area is reduced and centred.
Make sure to place your grabbing-hand in the centre of the mesh (not the texture as it might be off-centered or transparent) to grab and pick up the overlay off the floor. Once you get the trick, moving or delete the overlays shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for everything,
Pixelhate. 2009.

Yay for Pixelhate-to go with your other floors, and walls. I need these so badly for the community trash lots, where unspeakable things happen to pixels.

Thanks for this!

*sighs happily* Oh, pixelhate, no wonder you're one of my favorite creators. I love the grungy side of things, and these feed my addiction to no end. Your overlays are just so ingenious -- it's a great way to makeover my game. Thanks so much! <3
#13 Old 13th Aug 2009 at 4:45 AM
Oh flapjacks! Thank you, Pixelhate. These overlays add that grit that a city needs to be a city (my suffer from an overabundance of cleanliness. We can't have that).

Sure. Fine. Whatever.
