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.
Update (30.12.2015): add a new variant "Just Ceiling Mod" (Artrui Movable ceiling.rar)
These are two mesh-edits of my "Movable Floor/Ceiling Patches". Thanks to Selaronosims for the feedback at tumblr. Now, we are able to use any floor pattern with the ceiling patches, because they are just below the surface of the floor.
- The new packages don't overwrite the packages in "Artrui Movable floors.rar".
- They have same color swatches, material and ceiling-position.
- You will find the "Artrui movable ceiling 2x2" and "Artrui movable ceiling 1x1" in game under Build mode/Pool/Pool accessories.

2x enlarge the movable ceiling 2x2

These are two new meshes to decorate both floor and ceiling.
You will find them under Build mode/Pool/Pool accessories.
They can be easily put in grid on floor, in pool and in fountain.
Two sizes are available: 1x1 and 2x2.
Each has 8 colors like the Sims 4 base game floor "lumber fashion hardwoods".

They are movable, so that we have more possobilities to decorate.
For example: Put them on the floor like the screenshot below. They are slightly higher as the floor-paint level. It makes an effect like a floor patch.

If you want to cover the whole floor with these patches, it's better if you put them in an order-- from behind to front, from right to left and all in one direktion-- so that they get the same reflex.
Look, I've mixed 1x1 and 2x2 patches in this room with this place order. They have a unit look.

Like a rug, they don't block the walk way (/swim way).
If you place the patches at first and then place an other rug on them, that rug will be still visible.-- edit: Something has changed after Christmas. The rug is hidden under the patches (sometimes).

How to give the Sims 4 ceiling the floor color?
I have mentioned that you can also use them to decorate the ceiling. In my example, I've used this stuff to decorate the ceiling of the "VIP view room" from my shared lot "Junge Adventure".
I've placed the 2x2 patches on the roof-floor above this room. Then I switch to play mode. Move camera into this room; click tab; turn the camera up; use arrow key to switch the floor a level higher. Now, the ceiling is visible!

Have fun!

P.S. You may recolor them. But please don't include the meshes. Link back here. You will find the recolor templates in download.Tip: One can also recolor the floor part and ceiling part in two different patterns.
