Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Allo and good day.

These walls are the first in a set of subway tile walls I created. This set wasn't a pre-planned thing. I created a couple of subway tile walls for another, much larger set and got a bit.....carried away with the colors. I couldn't help myself. I was instantly transported back to my first year as an art major, when I spent hours trying to separate hundreds of paint chips by hue, value and chroma and gluing them into my Munsell color workbook. *sigh*

So, because of my lack of restraint, the collection of walls have been broken into 3 different parts. This batch is the neutral colored and monochromatic walls.

Hopefully these walls will be a welcome addition to your Victorian and more chic/modern lots.

I made the tile texture myself, so if you'd like to create your own colors for these walls, you MUST, MUST obtain my permission first, and give me credit as well as a link back.

COLLECTION file is included in the zip.

Update June 10, 2008:
I fixed the .zip file because it didn't actually contain the full tile wall. So if you downloaded the set before June 10, please redownload. If you are downloading AFTER June 10, don't worry.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

YAY!!! No one can fully understand my love for subway tile...heck, even I can't. I'm so glad you're the one to do this because with you I know my Sim's are going to get top quality subway tiled walls in their homes! And there's a pretty good chance this is going in everyone of my Sim's homes! Thank you so much!

EDIT: These really look amazing in game! I put them in my Sims bathroom and they made it look wicked stylish! Thanks again!

These are great! I was an art major also so I understand exactly how you feel. Thanks for sharing these with us.

Sure. Fine. Whatever.

You're right, I forgot to include the full wall tile in the .zip file. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please redownload the set if you'd like the full tile wall.

woah, white? XD hm.. living in a very populated area.. when i think of subways, I don't think of white and clean... the subway is so dirty where i live... though i'm sure in some places it is kept very nice, especially if it is brand new! this is very nice, i like it.
