another poll

So, I’ve got about 40 build sets that I’ve recolored currently in my game, and a bunch more that I got tired of in my archives, and I’d love to share but considering the amount of difficulty I have getting the damn game to function, I am not terribly enthusiastic about taking pictures of everything, especially if no one but me uses the set anyway.

I’m going to ask about them in groups based on what they’re purportedly made of. First up are the sets that I’ve recolored entirely in “metal” tones. I’ve got three standard textures – dark iron, iron, rusty – and almost all sets have been recolored in all three. Additionally, quite a few have an additional “institutional paint” texture, which is a slightly greenish cream with rust. There are also a few that are done in a sort of galvanized metal texture in lieu of and/or in addition to my regular metals. Anyway, they’re all designed to be industrialish and unshiny.

Vote for what you use, or what you would use if you liked the colors available – no guarantees, of course, that you’d like mine, but at least they’d be different than what you have already.

And a real update is coming, I promise!

ETA: to be clearer, whatever textures I’ve slapped on to any given set will be shared; I’m just wanting to know which sets anyone might actually use or want to use.  And thanks for the answers thus far 🙂

    I’d probably like all of these – I love the metal/industrial look. If I had to choose just one I’d want iron. Or rusty. 🙂

    They all sound nice, but I like rusty metal the best.

    I think I would like rusty metal best.

    I’m a little bit different. I love rust, and there are only a few good rust sets in Sims sites. I’d love to have your rust sets.

    I can never have enough build sets or enough colors!

    I only rarely use ‘shiny’ metal colors in my buildings. I am usually drawn to the aged look. Worn, faded paint look will generally have more appeal than pitted rusty looks. My buildings tend to jump all over the board in terms of styling and aging, so any of these could be perfect for ‘the next one”.

    Do you realize how horrible it is to try and read the comments against the white background? My eyes are getting to old and week.

    I really like the metal/industrial look as well. Apocalypse zombies ftw! =P
