This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

In a change of pace for the modern carpets I made a few months back, I've made some traditional designs to augment your classic decor. These are all four-channel carpets. All parts of the carpets are recolorable. See below for screenshots and examples of color changes, as well as an illustration of the RGBA masks.

As with my other carpets, these are located in the Decor category, under Rugs. The group will show up as a new item called "Traditional 3 x 2 Rugs." There will be one thumbnail that looks like one of the rugs styles shown in the screenshots. All of the other rugs are available using that thumbnail -- just click, wait for a second for the description to appear and scroll through the options; or click on the rug with the artist's palette to choose a version in Create-a-Style. Each rug costs 450 simoleons.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to cmomoney for the excellent tutorial on rugs and for the tutorial on adding multiple images to the same object. Also to the creators of S3PE, S3OC and TextureTweaker, all of which are amazing!

In addition to basic Photoshop brushes, I used brushes from one or more of the following sites or creators:,, obsidian dawn, pixelsand icecream or kissmypixels.
