This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
2nd September 2019 - These have now been posted at my own site: https://littlecarping.com/mybb/showthread.php?tid=45 Any updates to these files or additions will be found there. Addititionally, please see this thread: https://littlecarping.com/mybb/showthread.php?tid=18 for copies of the meshes.

Updated information 1st July 2015: it looks like the archive of the original meshes is down. As they're not my meshes, I can't do anything about that but I did offer edited versions of the meshes here on this thread (see below)

_________________________________

More recolours for Nengi65’s great rug mesh! These textures are taken from interesting things I’ve found on the web or that have been sent to me and that I have adapted for the mesh. They are mostly geometric in style: spots; stripes; circles; squares, though there is one nice oriental flower graphic too.

Meshes
To use the recolours, you will need Nengi65’s original mesh. Unfortunately, Nengi left the simming community some time ago and you can’t get the mesh from the original source. Fortunately, you can get it from an archive here - (currently) second page called Rug Collection. You can also get the meshes on this page but I have edited them - please see the description below to see what I have done.

These are recolours for the 3x4 master rug from Nengi65's Rug Collection (the recolours will show on all other rugs from the collection as they are slaves to the 3x4 master rug). Additionally, if you download these additional slave meshes from Huge Lunatic you can also have these lovely rugs in full room sizes too.

Catalogue Placement
The rugs can be found in the catalogue under Decorative>Miscellaneous and cost: 3x4 master $50; 2x3 $30; and the 2x1 runner $50.

Edited Versions of the Meshes
As you may guess from the above, the original rug meshes were made before the EP which brought us a rugs section in the catalogue (hence they are categorized in Miscellaneous). I have therefore also included in this upload, as a separate file, copies of the mesh files which I have edited to categorize the rugs into the rugs section of the catalogue (i.e. they can be found under Decorative>Rugs). I have also edited some of the parameters of these files to suit my personal preferences: I've dropped the room environment score to more reasonable levels (this was originally set at 10) and I've changed the wants satisfy score to Rug (rather than Sculpture). I've also increased the price to match better Maxis rugs of more or less equivalent size. The prices for this version of the meshes are: 3x4 master $350; 2x3 $220; and the 2x1 runner $110.

Which version you take is a personal choice. I have a thing about making my sims spend reasonable amounts of money for their stuffs and I don't like maxing out settings, like the environment score, on objects. It's just a personal preference. If you're not bothered about these things get the original files from the link given. If you are more fussy like me, help yourself to my edited version.

You can't have both versions of the mesh in your game as I have not altered either the names of the files or the GUID - pick one or the other.



NB – all other objects in the pictures are Maxis.
