This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Additional small sizes for the Maxis “Super Sisal” rugs that are mapped to the same textures, plus mesh and optional texture overrides for all of them.


Update 2016-02-07: Updated with better, top-down thumbnails. You will need to delete localthumbcache.package so that the game can regenerate them.





Additional sizes:

3×1 ‒ 60§
2×2 ‒ 70§
3×2 ‒ 90§
3×3 ‒ 120§

The original rugs are 2×1 (50§), 4×3, 4×4 and something even more gigantic.


Mesh overrides:

Those are included with the small sizes ‒ the mapping was a little huh, so I changed it and changed the originals as well so they will all match exactly. The texture also appears a little more “fine-grained” now (it’s still the same texture, I’m just using a larger part of it) and the meshes are more low poly as a result. See screenshot for a comparison.


Texture overrides:

For four of the textures to make them less pale and easier to combine with other stuff; they apply to all of the originals and these. No dramatic change though. See screenshot.



Polygon Counts:

Large 7×5 (Mesh override): 63V/96F (was: 172V/96F)
Square 4×4 (Mesh override): 49V/50F (was: 81V/50F)
Medium 4×3 (Mesh override): 42V/40F (was: 63V/40F)
Small 2×1 (Mesh override) 20V/12F
3×3: 36V/32F
3×2: 30V/24F
2×2: 30V/18F
3×1: 24V/16F

All sun shadows are 4V/2F (they were much higher on the originals).
