    I know the Tokuno wood floors have a problem with people being able to 'hear' through the floors. Do the new SA floors have this same problem?

    Does anyone know if you can hear through the new flooring? I really would like to design my house with the new SA tiles, but want to make sure that wouldn't be a problem. Was hoping someone would know rather than me testing it as it would mean pulling down vendors and a serious headache, only to have to revert the design if the SA flooring suffered from the same problem.

    I would test this for you but I don't have my laptop at the moment and I wasn't aware that was the reason previously for the hearing through floors, I will of coarse when I get my laptop back do heavy testing on this subject But I had assumed it was gaps being left due to ladders or stairs but perhaps your right perhaps the devs left off a tag they shouldn't have. In which case if we do proper testing and report to them maybe it will be an "Easy" fix =)


    You could of course get some friends and test it your self first...

    I'm not positive the reason. But i know like if you use grass or snow colored for floors you can hear what is said in the room below it.

    I have a lot of friends, thank you :( I just don't have the new floor tiles designed into my house.

    I was simply attempting to ask before I took down all the vendors to save myself the heartache. I know the Tokuno wood floors you could hear through them and still can to the best of my knowledge. I believe it was from them not meshing against the wall fully.

    Perhaps you didn't mean to come across as mean and it is simply a misunderstanding... after all we can't hear someone's tone in typing *smiles* Thanks for any assistance you can give in the matter. Even though it might appear to be a stupid question to some, it means a lot to me.

    No i didn't I was implying using TC =) sorry If you felt I was rude I added that in as an afterthought because I had forgotten to throw you a quicker solution then waiting until i can test it. Something I will do regardless, when I get some time Im quite intrigued at the possibility of there being a "Reason" for that annoyingness. Although if you test it first I'd love to hear your findings =)

    Not a problem *smiles* I'll try and test it that way. I figured I was just being overly sensitive about it, so my apologies if I took it wrong

    I think Andrasta redesigned Goodman's library using the new floor tiles.
    But I am not sure if she used them on all the floors or if that would make a difference?
    There are a few homes open to the public in Ter Mur. The Penny Pincher Mall comes to mind. I believe that one is done in all the new floor tiles.
    Could you test it in a house open to the public?
