Upon request I made floors to match the Maxis grass. I made it as carpet because I figured that would make sense. I used the 3 original Maxis grass types: Sparse and Spotty, Grassy Growth, and Bright Burst Terrain.
I put all three in one zip file.
Hopefully they work ok. If there is anything wrong with them, please let me know.
I forgot to mention: You can do whatever you want with these. Put them in houses available for download or whatever. I don't even care if you link back to me because they were so rediculously easy to make that anyone with Homecrafter and a graphic editing program can do it.
Its not mandatory, but I would love to see screenies of things you do with them just to see how they are being used. I want people to enjoy them and it will make me feel good to see them put to use. :-)
EDITED: I believe I have fixed the problem, but the files are no longer sims2packs, they are .package files because when I try to package them, Homecrafter corrupts them. I tested them in game and they don't look as good as I'd hoped. Not sure how to achieve the same effect. I made 3 of each file in different zoom levels to see which one would work the best.

No problem.
I actually had already made it before someone requested it because I wanted to be able to hide a structure seemingly under ground. Unfortunately I couldn't get the terrain to work to hide the walls. I even made grass walls at one point but I can't for the life of me remember what I called them.
I had issues with the first ones I made. They worked fine in my game until I exported them. Then they turned maroon. I checked them in Homecrafter and the clean Installer. They showed up as green. But in my game and my brother's game when I tested them on his computer they were maroon. No idea why.
So I just made them over again.
If these ones turn up maroon in anyone's game please let me know so I can scream and rip my hair out.
Btw, this is my first upload to MTS2 so I hope I did it right.

I made some of my own, but they look terrible (they're not maroon, though ). I you want, I can post them on here, not to hijack your thread or anything.

Ok. I remade them. I had to change the name of the zip file becauase it would not let me upload it for some retarded reason.
Hopefully this will work better.

This is a very neat idea! I'm not sure why maxis would have made the terrain round instead of square, everything else is square. *shrugs* One of those "why the heck did they do that?" things to be filed away and used to my advantage for later. Nah, just kindd. But seriously, good job.
