This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
First and foremost, a HUGE Thank You to Inge, Inge_Jones here,, of Simlogical, for helping me with the mirror problem!

See updates section below.

Before asking a question please thoroughly read the post. Chances are great it has the answer.

Don't continue on until you've read the above.

If you've read the All the above, continue reading the entire post.



As the title states these are true reflective floors. It is the child of hard work and dedication from Morfhead Research & Development. These beautys from Laviance Creations is the flagship product of the new company. With items like these we can expect big things from LVC.



Some Things To Know
  • These work instead of flooring. So lay them down and use the Create-A-Style Tool (CAST) on the rug tiles. Find in Decor -> Rugs.
  • Make sure to have a subfloor, else your Sims will get the unfinished debuff. Choose the $0 flooring.
  • Shadows do not appear on these
  • Since these are mirrors they will most likely affect game performance on lower-end computers or if used unsparingly



Some Other Things To Know
  • They look sweet!
  • 10% or 25% reflection
  • Both versions can be used simultaneously
  • Armiel's CAST yourself A Painting, Here


Updates
U 1.1 - Many people have stated the reflection was too high. So I adjusted the settings and offer a version, GLM-R5, with less shine. See the last two pictures for comparison.

U1 - I had not the foresight to create enough pieces. I didn't realize I needed a different half tile for different types of corners, so I added those. I also expanded the set up to 4 tiles large. Please re-download if needed.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
