Use the info.beginnernomore@telus.net address.
Make sure it is saved as a .pla with all textures.

Now that i have the file, there's a problem with rendering it because the "CadImage Macros" aren't in the archive. Dang.

But i did open the file and i think the explanation for why the tiles won't accept your new material definition is that you had this box checked - it would prevent material assignment.

Let me know.

If I clear the check box than the tile material and cleft material will be the same and I do not want it.

Were these tiles made with the ArchiTiles Add-On?

I suspect you'll need to figure out how to the edit those materials in ArchiTiles, but i have no skills in that add-on.

I am such an idiot.
I got into this without really studying the title of your post.
Duh.

Do you have the Add-on?
I believe that to edit the materials you'll need the add-on.

But you are already doing so much work with these simple tiles, why not just array some slabs and trim them to fit the room. ArchiTiles shines when importing fancy tile shapes and patterns, not common squares.

Yes, I have it in PC (without CD). It is student version, because I have AC 11 EDU.

From rudimentary study of the ArchiTiles manual, it looks like you must regenerate to edit the materials.

Is there someone from CIGRAPH to solve my problem with ArchiTiles?

When you create a tile by using ArchiTiles you are going to create a "specific-real" tile.
You are defining the tile material, its cost, its productor, etc.
You cannot change the tile material because you are creating a real tile (if you want another color you should build another tile that will have a different code, price, material, etc.).
