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.
4th September 2019 - These have now been posted at my own site: Any updates to these files or additions will be found there. Addititionally, please see this thread: for copies of the meshes.

I finally have some time to myself - hurrah!

I have some time now when I can make things again for TS2. So, I decided to open with a fairly straightforward set of recolours for Nengi65's rug meshes. Because these recolours are easy and quick to do and I needed something to get me going again. Besides, I have a need for these.


These are in a more traditional (Turkish or Oriental) style than my previous recolours for this mesh. The images came from around the web but, as before, I got a lot of good quality images from the John Lewis website.

So why a more traditional style? Well, there are plenty of rug recolours around in this style but I wanted to get some not just on Nengi's rug meshes but on Huge Lunatic's larger room-sized versions of the mesh which are slaved to Nengi's mesh. You can find Huge Lunatic's larger meshes here. Because, after all, if you are building stately homes, you need big Oriental-style room-sized carpets. Well you do, don't you?

There are 24 recolours in total (I couldn't choose and whittle them down further). I thought this was perhaps a bit much for most people so I have divided the files into four collections of six rugs apiece (see pictures). That way, you can choose the collection you like best and download that. If you're really mad for it, there is a rar with all recolours too.

Here is a comparison picture with Nengi's rugs at the top and the two larger HL versions at the bottom. All rugs are slaved to the 3x4 rug at top-right.

Nengi's mesh is no longer easily available on the web. However, I did post, with one of my other recolour sets, some edited versions of the meshes. These are available here so if you don't already have the original master mesh for this set, you will be able to get it (albeit with my catalogue edits included). If you already have the meshes, you're good to go.

Edit 1st August 2016 - I added a link to another MTS download post which has the original meshes. It's the second link of the three.

So a simple, straightforward upload to get me going - more from me anon - and I hope you like them.
