Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
All new 20 specialty carpets including deep reds, shags, sculptured, plush, browns, oranges, rusts, etc. Mostly dark but a few pastel sculptered and shags also. Took some time. These were by far the hardest. I know floors are usually easy, but dark colors take a lot of texturing and manipulating in order not to look flat like maxis carpets. I am not likely to do more of these specialty carpets because it was just tooooooo much work. I hope you like them. Let me know what you think.

They look great. The apparent texture of the floor texture is fantastic. I can easily believe it took some serious fiddling to get them looking so perfect.

A couple of these carpets remind me of 70's ones. No, not the really tacky and shaggy rugs people see in some old pictures, but the low-shag varieties that actually DID look really, really nice in rooms, and still do today! (I have one that looks somewhat like your sculpted carpets in my old room at my mother's house.)

Anyway, these carpets look really nice in-game, with very rich colors. Thanks!

Seeing you whine about not being able to use .rar files in every thread you post in is getting annoying. Get winrar... it's not hard, its free and it works on all OS's ~ theirs no reason why you can't.

These are gorgeous btw! Thankyou very much!

Great carpets, the purple one reminds me of a floor we had in out house when i was a kid, and we had a blue one identical to that one too,
Although i did go off the carpets after a while but in the game they look fantastic

Thanx a bunch
