Real Rugs

Description

These objects have modified behaviours and a new mesh, which allows them to act like rugs. You can put them under other objects. Sims will walk over them. And best of all, you can recolour them! No more jigsaw-style piecing together of floor tiles!

Known issues:

- If very shallow objects (like plates) are placed on the ground covered by the rug, they sink into the rug's "pile". The plate is still there, but you can't get at it unless you move the rug temporarily.
- Sims don't like to "Work Out" on the rug. If you have a rug covering the whole area in front of a tv and set the sim to exercise, s/he will not do it. You can either move the rug, move the tv, or find something else to increase your sim's fitness.
