Tiling shower floor or plastic tray

Is there a safe way to tile a shower floor with a drain if I don't use the plastic tray like most showers have?
I heard someone mention there is a plastic tray that you can tile over?
I know the tray has less leakage and mildew mold but the tiles look so much nicer and richer.

I would still only use a tray with up stands, I too like sheets for the walls rather than tiles, I generally used trays with up stands on all four sides, no silicone inside except inside vertical trims to the panels.

Maria,
I've used plastic bases that you tile on several jobs with good success. Very simple compared to other methods and the finished surface is indistinguishable from traditionally installed tile.
