This is another 'made for myself, then figured I would share' floor covering. It's for the outside, either in the garden or used as a pathway. I used a picture of a real tree stump, and used the Maxis provided tanbark ground covering to make it.

Wanting to keep it real, there are three different floor squares, one with the step in the middle, on with it in the bottom left corner, and a third in the top right. This helps you make a 'wavy' path like pictured below. I also provided just the ground cover, because the Maxis one is over multiple squares, it doesn't quiet match, the one provided will.

In the screenshot I used the game garden edging to complete the look, it's the first one selected when you go to the fence area... just for those wanting to know.

Just a couple more shots now that I got the garden sorted... helps show what they look like with some colour around them.

I love these!!! I dont like the walkways at my houses but this will be a welcome change? Have you seen any that look like stepping stones on grass or dirt?

Very interesting and certainly worth me trying out. It will go with the log cabin walls I downloaded. Thanks for sharing.

I'm in the middle of creating a Japanese Garden and I got so fed up with the lack of materials I have, so I tabbed out and decided to search around. Thanks to you, this is exactly what I need!

YAAY! Cheers!

I haven't searched yet, and must get some RL work done, but have you made these into concrete stepping stones, by any chance? If not, would it be OK if I recolored them that way, or would you? Oh...btw...our concrete rounds (the same size as these log cuts) are set into pea gravel. :-)

Thanks! :-)
