Dancefloors for the Home
With an aim toward making Sims socialization in casual settings easier to achieve, we made a few changes to the dancefloors. The first was to eliminate the light show. The second was to fill in the gaps between tiles making the flooring "seamless" just like regular floors. For even more variety we also created the Cut-A-Rug dance floor which sports a unique 4 rotation graphic assigned to each tile.
Object Makers Note: All are EZ Clone, combining the dance-floor and the dfcontroller in a single iff. The ballroom floor is structured like the original dance-floor, using a single sprite for all tile. The Cut-A-Rug dance floor, however, has a unique 4 rotation graphic assigned to each tile. Lighted EZ-Clone Dancefloors are also available.
Center Square Parquet Ballroom Dance Floor: Wooden dance floor matches the center square parquet floor by Maxis. Game Quirk Note: since the game shines light on real floors but not on objects, this floor wont blend in well in dimmer rooms. HP required
Cut-a-Rug Dance Floor: Great for use in front of your home stereo system, or by the jukebox of smaller bars & pubs.HP required
"Flashier" Dance Floors
One more change we made was to the dance floors' opacity. Translucent dance floors are quite versatile. The flooring you put below them can change their look drastically. Like filling the gaps in, this is not a hack, but a change to the A sprite. We encourage you to play with the alpha channels and create new and interesting dancefloors yourself! It's really quitefun!!
