Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These walls might be know from other of my screenshots and are sometimes part of my house uploads here on MTS2. However, now is the first time I upload the complete set of my long mosaic tiles.
To make the set even more fulfilled and useful, I have also spent a lot of time creating matching floors. There is a lot of interior screenshots bellow which shows some examples of how the walls can be used.

Hopefully you will find them as useful as I do when I try to add a modern touch to the different rooms. Especially kitchens and bathrooms, but other rooms and also outside walls can be decorated with the mosaic without any problems.

This modern set of walls and floors features 36 different walls and 16 floors in eight different colours. Consequently each colour have 2 different floors and 4 different walls.
The included colours are: Black, gray, brown, sand, white, blue, green, red and mixed gray.

One exception is the gray mixed wall. That colour comes with 2 sizes of the mosaic tiles and both with a "half" version. They have no corresponding floor.

Policy
I have tried to select the most necessary colours, but if you still would like to have more, feel free to recolour them or make requests. However, do not upload them without my permission.

Simple Installation! =)
All files are package-files (not sims2pack-files) and they can directly be placed in the Downloads folder. There is no need to install all walls and floors one by one, they will appear in your game (among the tiles) anyways.

Organisation

All files are highly organized by name, and can easily be located in the folder. This picture (above) shows the name of all wall files. The black wall with four columns is named "MosBlack4". Notice that the picture shows two of the same walls next to each other.

The floors on the other hand, is named with their colour and a number, e.g. Black0 or Black1. 0 = blank and 1 = striped.

Matching walls and floors
This mosaic set works very well with a tile set I've created. The tiles can be seen on some of the screenshots bellow.

I was so excited when I saw these. The floors look great in my game. I do have a small problem to report: The walls are not the standard pixel size so my mac only shows them as grey I don't know how hard it is to fix this, but I was very disappointed.

The standard pixel size is actually 256 x 768... Because if you make the walls in 256 x 512 (as Homecrafter suggests), the walls get stretched out in the game.

I didn't know it was a problem with Mac computers, because the game should normally make the texture fit automatically. It must be a bug and it would take extremely much time to change all the walls.

yeah, its a stupid mac version of the game thing. Oh well, I'm getting used to disappointments when it comes to walls. Still, thanks again very much for this upload. I've already made good use of the floor tiles.

This set is great - thanks!

By the way, where do the potted plants come from?
