iCad’s Tumblr: Home of the Crappy Previews, Yay!
Hi, everyone! (And thank you and welcome to the 15-or-so new followers who’ve plunked themselves down on my porch since the last time I looked at this thing.) Sorry I’ve been away/quiet. Truth is, it’s been freakin’ hot here, and my house is not air-conditioned, so sleeping during the day just isn’t happening. Usually, it doesn’t need to be air-conditioned because it’s usually not hot here for long. But it’s been pretty freakin’ hot all week and my Simming computer is in a little room that gets a lot of sun and the thermostat in there says it’s been 97 degrees in there, and…Ugh. Post-menopausal, but still occasionally-hot-flashing, me just doesn’t do hot. Plus, I don’t want to overheat my precious. So, I’ve been sleeping at night, the computer’s been turned off, and I haven’t been playing. And so I haven’t been Tumblring, either.
BUT! Tonight I decided I wanted to do some Simming, since I’m not too tired…yet. But before I started on that, I decided to finish this up. So….
A bit ago, I made these carpets and posted them on MTS. I decided I wanted more stuff in that set of colors. Some of ‘em tend to be bright, so they said “bathroom” to me. Hence, tile. This particular wall and floor tile is a very slight edit of ones that amovitamsim converted from TS3. Basically, I whited up the “cream” parts and grayed-down the grout a bit plus made a solid-color version of the wall, and then dumped the 64 Crayola colors that I used on the carpets onto them. You can find a crappy swatch of all the colors here, which is also included in the ZIP file for your reference. It’s not meant to be pretty, kids; it’s just meant to be a color ref.
The set includes two walls — the two-toned ones, which are all color+white(ish) as shown above, and solid ones — and a matching solid-color floor, each in 64 colors, so 128 walls and 64 floors. (The “much insanity” part is because I totally screwed up renaming the walls…three times…to get rid of the Homecrafter gibberish, and it drove me more crazy than I already am to fix it. I THINK they are right now. They’d better be, anyway.) Be aware that some of the colors are really bright and unless you like searing your retinas (and I know some of you do! :) ), you might want to use them sparingly. Also, some of the colors are very similar. This is Crayola’s fault, not mine. You might want to pick and choose what you keep. Or not. Whatever. :)
Files are compressed and, as mentioned, renamed to remove Homecrafter’s gibberish.
And…That’s all I’ve got. Download here.
Of course, now that I’ve made this tile, I want toilet seats and bathtubs and mirror frames and shower curtains and God-knows-what-else in this color palette. *headdesk* I hate myself sometimes.
