Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here again, with another set. Walling, flooring,... and a lot of it! Lighting is a bit whacked, as usual, and sometimes you may be able to see the difference between one piece of walling and the next; but this is a Maxis problem, not a problem in this set; each piece is completely and totally tiled, with no genuine seams; the lighting just tends to throw irregular shadows.

There are 120 wall pieces (yes, 120 pieces of wallpaper!) and 30 floor pieces. 42 Elaborate Style, 78 Vine Borders, and the 30 floor pieces (of both Elaborate and Borders). These are in 3 separate zip files, one for Elaborate, one for Borders, and one for the flooring.

Here is a simplified list of the pieces, some which you can see (as a collage and in-game) below (for obvious reasons, all 150 can't be shown):

Of the Vine Green – Elaborate Style (one of each for the seven different shades: Army, Dark, Darkest, Forest, Moss, Pine, and Tea, for a total of 42 pieces):
Basic – Walling with no borders. $2
Simple Sub-Border – Walling with simple base border. $3
Fancy Super-Border – Walling with fancy top border. $3
Simple All-Border – Walling with both simple base border and fancy top border. $4
Elaborate Sub-Border – Walling with elaborate base border. $5
Elaborate All-Border – Walling with both fancy top border and elaborate base border. $6

Of the Vine Green – Vine Borders:
Vine Borders is a little bit different. 78 pieces total. There is a choice of 8 different shades (Army, Basic, Dark, Darkest, Forest, Moss, Pine, and Tea). The same 7 as with Elaborate Style, with the addition of another green shade that, for simplicity sake, I'm just calling Basic Green. There is one borderless version for each color. Now, there are two important ways that this part of Of the Vine Green differs from the Elaborate part. First of all, the background is different (as you can see in various images below). Second of all, the borders are a lot different. While Elaborate Style has a variety of different kinds of top/bottom border combinations, the Vine Borders part has only one kind of border: a detailed-picture top-border. There are 12 different borders. Each one has on average at least five selected background colors that works well with the border colors. A complete list is here (specifying which border, and what shades are given for it):
No Border – All 8 background colors. $2
Bouquet – Army, Basic, Forest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
FlowerVine: Army, Forest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
FlowerVineFaded: Army, Forest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
GrapesAndFlowers: Army, Basic, Dark, Forest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
LargeGrapes: Army, Darkest, Forest, Pine, Tea. $3
LeafVine: Army, Basic, Dark, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
LeafVineOnVelvet: Army, Dark, Darkest, Forest, Pine. $3
LeavesOnVelvet: Army, Basic, Dark, Darkest, Forest, Moss, Pine. $3
LeavesOnVelvetFaded: Army, Dark, Darkest, Forest, Moss, Pine. $3
Mistletoe&Holly: Dark, Basic, Darkest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3
SmallGrapes: Army, Basic, Darkest, Forest, Moss, Pine. $3
Tropical: Army, Basic, Forest, Moss, Pine, Tea. $3

Of the Vine Green – Carpet and Tile:
One piece of both carpet and tile for all 8 shades, done twice using both patterns (for a total of 15 tiles and 15 carpets – When it comes to the Elaborate Style, there are only 7 different shaded patterns, not 8 like with Vine Borders – so 8 tile and 8 carpet for Vine Borders, and 7 tile and 7 carpet for Elaborate Style, totaling 30 pieces). No need to list them all, as it is rather self-explanatory. Each tile and each carpet piece is just $2 as usual.

It is my intention to continue this Of the Vine theme, using other colors and borders as well. However, seeing how incredibly huge this one is, it may be a very long while before I begin work on another set.

You are allowed to use this set as it is in your lot uploads, so long as you have linked back to this original set. If you wish to make some sort of recolor, ask for permission first, and then link back here in your recolor upload. Do not upload anywhere except for MTS2! Please see my creator policies for further information, or PM if you need clarification.

Have fun and enjoy!
