Notes:
1. The material ball preview icon in Blender may appear pink, as if the textures are not found, but this is just because of the extra time it takes to load the high quality textures.
2. The tiles patterns are setup for surfaces with a uniform UV layout.
The pattern may appear incorrect if the UV layout is non-uniform.
This can be corrected by tuning the mapping scale parameters inside the material.
3. CG-Lion Architectural Concrete Tiles Pack 1.0 materials may look render slightly differently when switching between Cycles and Eevee render engines.
