Picked upload! Invisible Floor Tile

Invisible Floor Tile
Requested by Birdgofly

I've used RGiles transparent tile in the screenshots for comparison (I always thought that one was invisible, shows how much attention I've been paying )
His tile is still a recommended "must have" for all builders, you can get it HERE
I wouldn't be without it in my game :D

Anyway I wasn't going to do any more of these tiles for a while, but I got a request for an invisible tile that made sims looks as if they were walking on air, which was quick and easy to do, so here it is.
(Please no more requests for these, I'm up to my elbows in transparent tiles )



Please note - For use on upper levels, it's not meant for ground floor cover, and if you use this tile without any support underneath it, then the game will still add a border, as shown in the screenshot.

You can use in your upload lots, but please provide a credit link back here, or to the link supplied with the in-game tile catalogue info.

To install - unzip to your EA downloads folder

This item can be found in the Tile section of Build / Flooring

If you like this item, then please press the Thanks button
Enjoy

I would say that these look great, but...they're invisible!

Thanks, Muse - these will be really useful

Can you try to make invisible/transparent walls?

No sorry morten, walls are a completely different thing, and I don't think anyone's figured out how to make them invisible without the use of a door or window yet.
Maybe one of the experts on the request board will be able to help

Hanging upside down to sleep does not make you cool or alternative - I know, because I've tried it...

Its fantastic and so well done.I suppose you (or your gnomes...) had a lot of work on it!

Now,if I see someone walking quietly on a lake I'll know that its not because I have become insane,but just because he is using your invisible floor.

Once more,huge thanks to you,Muse,you're providing us with so many useful and precious things for our dear simmies.

morten8035,

Numenor's wall-window invisible recolour can completely mask the wall, and windows can be made to placed with other wall objects.


moonlight_muse

A long while ago, eddie has made a similar invisible tile, too. Guess, I'll seee how these are like... Thanks...
There're a few ways to do this though. May I find them in some existing instances...
I also like the other transparent tiles you've made...
Maybe, you can make some 2-sided/doubly-sided versions for them.

Thanks Niol, I only made this one for a request but wouldn't have a clue as to how to make a double sided one, isn't that what you have in your signature?

Glad you like the other tiles too :D

I just knew that eddief is not around and deleted the downloads...
Here's the thread you'll learn how to set it 2-sided/doubly-sided... It's very similar to transparent tile making, just do 1 more setting only.

May click here

In your case, all you have to ensure is to have a property line
stdMatCullMode: none
That's what makes the difference..!
