The Sims Social receives a visit from Mario via carpet art

We've already seen Mario (the Mario of Nintendo fame) make an appearance in FarmVille via Hay Bale art, so it was only a matter of time before this pixelated hero showed up in another game containing multi-colored squares: The Sims Social.

Here, instead of Hay Bales, we've seen Reddit user TheButterflyman create Mario out of carpet and floor tiles, readily available in the game's Build Menu. The inspiration? "Sims Social got boring, so I started using it as a pixel-art canvas." And what better place to start than one of the most iconic characters in all of video games?

For the record, if you'd like to create your own Mario, it looks like most of the ingredients here are fairly cheap. Just head into the game's store (specifically the Build section, and then click on Tiles) and start placing individual pieces of Red Carpet (20 coins each), Clay (five coins each) and Charcoal tiles (five coins each) in the proper pattern. To add the white background, you'll need plenty of Snow floor tiles, which also cost 5 coins each. Of course, you'll need to store all of your original rooms first, but as those rooms can be stored and then replaced with all items inside intact, this could make for a fun little time waster while waiting for your energy to recharge in the game.

With additional flooring tiles being released in the game with almost every theme, the possibilities for art here are fairly endless. Should anything else strike our eye, we'll make sure to pass it along to you.

What do you think of this Mario carpet art in the Sims Social? Have you built anything similar in your Sims Social game, or do you stick to Hay Bale art in FarmVille? Let us know in the comments!
