Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello, dearests! My birthday was on the 11th, and I can't believe I'm 20! Gaaaaaaaah, time goes so quickly!

A couple of you have been asking about if that floor/wall/etc. in such and such screenshot is ever going to be released, and I've finally stopped being lazy and threw them all together in a build set.

This set has a total of EIGHTY items! 10 colors of cut wood floor, 9 colors of blocky wood floor, sectioned wood floor, and broad wood floor, 8 colors of simple tile floor and wall-covering, 6 colors of marble tile floor and wall-covering, and 15 colors of striped wallpaper. My wrist is pretty much broken!

(I'd post a thousand screenshots, but I'm only allowed a wee little 8.)

I've included a collection file with all of these lumped together so you can find them in the catalog more easily.


Additional Credits:
The brick wall outside the windows is by the incredibly talented Pixelhate. I think I have more of his stuff in my game than I do of my own!

Adele, you are now my hero. This is absolutely amazing. I hate "decorating" with Maxis walls and floors, so boy are these going to be put to use. The stripy wallpaper in the first picture is absolutely gorgeous. I'm off to download most of the rest of your stuff now. Keep at it, you're brilliant!

This is a gorgeous set, and I can't wait to use it! I'm in love with your stuff in general, and am downloading a great deal of it for my new clean game (I'm doing a reinstall to a different hard drive and decided to start over).

I'm also experiencing problems extracting it, even after updating my winrar. It says that there is a corrupt file and, like mollipopster experienced, an "Unexpected end of archive."

...MTS2_Adele_905825_ADELE_odetteBuildSet_tiling.rar: CRC failed in ADELE_wall_simpleTiles_teal.package. The file is corrupt
...MTS2_Adele_905825_ADELE_odetteBuildSet_tiling.rar: Unexpected end of archive

It seems that you're having no problems, so it might just be downloading strangely, but I wanted to let you know just in case it is something you can fix.

Thanks so much!

You can upgrade by downloading the latest version from here:

@ everyone else: thank you!!

Whatever the problem was, it seems to have resolved. I am now using Firefox instead of iExplorer, though I have no idea if that is what fixed the problem for me.

I now have your lovely striped wallpaper in my game. Such a nice addition! Thanks again for your elegant work.

Dear Adele, I don't know if you're into Sims 3 yet, but if, I would love to see some textures from you there! I like Sims 3 very much, but I miss your style - in TS2 nearly everything has been from you in my lots... so, is there any chance???

Adele, you've set my heart on fire with all this classic material! Thank you, sweetie. Keep on going this way, please!

Only 20????? I love your creations. You're very talented. You should do this for a career if you aren't already. BTW, you're the same age as my daughter who is going to college for web design. Thanks for all of your hard work.
