Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Part two of the Steampunk wall/floor sets. "Mercury" uses a [quick]silver base and cooler colors for a more sterile aesthetic. (As opposed to "Vector" which I'm currently using in the slums of my neighborhood.)

Collection file is included in zip ^_^

Linke to Volume One - Steampunk Vector

Steampunk Alchemy

And again stay sharp, part three ("Alchemy") is right around the corner for all your snooty steampunk Sims in the Victorian apocalypse! All three sets are done, It's simply a matter of getting through the tedium of importing to game and organization.

Footnotes:

I am currently devising further additions basically because I want stuff for my entire neighborhood. I have started on a neighborhood terrain replacement, will eventually have a fourth volume, the "Gunmetal" color palette (good for some heavy industry areas) and of course will work on coordinating build items such as windows and doors to coordinate.

Any ideas or suggestions for future additions are welcome!

Wow, I'm trying to go on a CC "diet" and get my downloads folder down to a smaller size. You're not helping, putting forth not one but three deliciously tempting sets! Fortunately I have an idea for a new file management system that's going to let me gorge on your beautiful creations! I can't wait to see your entire theme come to life.

I put all my photos, music and video files on an external 7200rpm laptop hard drive, so I don't have your problem, because it sounds like complaining to me just by reading your comment.
My laptop has a 500GB 7200rpm laptop hard drive and still has room for more Sims 2 custom content, besides, people with money should not complain about hard drive capacity. Also you are double spacing your sentences after every period!

For example)
