Do you miss The Sims 1 iconic build/buy mode in your The Sims 4?

This wallpaper is known from the very first sims game. It is a part of Sims 1 Nostalgia Collection, which will contain as many TS1 objects as I will manage to create.

It is a base game standalone wallpaper, which includes original wallpaper "New Light" Wall Treatment and 3 modern recolors (dark grey, black and blue grout), giving in total 4 swatches. Use them for iconic 90's build-in showers or browse pinterest to see how nice modern glass bricks can look like!

The wallpapers are located in Build>Wallpapers>Miscellaneous.
Names: "New Light" Wall Treatment
Price: 17 simoleons

I guess it is impossible to show realistic glass wall cubes without walls transparency. I think The Sims developers were failed to make it look like glass cubes. Your tiles are good but not from glass too and has no enough transparency effect. Looks pretty similar to white stone rather then glass texture. Just my opinion.

Thanks for your feedback Vic!
There is truth to what you are saying. As far as I know, some kind of window could simulate the glass brick transparency effect, or even only object, because only then cubes could be visible as 3d objects, I guess. While making this texture I was already thinking that I will look into that in the future.
I could not decide if I would like to just paste realistic glass cubes texture and call it a day (like the sims 1 version was made) or make them a little more maxis match, so maybe I just was stuck in the middle But I think up close they resemble the glass more! :D

I love glass block, and while these don't actually act like glass, I think they're pretty. Thanks for sharing. If you ever do make the wall act like glass, I'll download that version, as well.
