INTERIOR WALL COLLECTION
A catalog makeover.

I've spent an inordinate amount of time on this project and could prattle on endlessly about the how's and why's of making these walls (and I will if you have any questions) but I'll keep this post short and to the point since there's a lot of information to convey.

OVERVIEW

All of the walls (764 and 1 floor tile) are as complete as possible with appropriate names, pricing and descriptions. There's a little bit of everything (interior wall wise) but the collection as a whole is rather neutral in tone as the walls were made to be the practical, catalog staples I reach for most of the time.

The textures are a mishmash of mostly EA, two web sourced patterns and some hand painting. They're new, bright and clean and don't have as much detail or artifacting as Maxis textures by design - but they're still very much Maxis Match, IMO.

The trim and moldings are white wood by default. A small number of colors come in light and medium wood as well. When toggled on, AL ceilings will cut off part of the crown moldings.

The wall colors (43) are a combination of original Maxis paints, derivatives of Maxis wallpapers and new colors that I probably chose to match existing content. Because of that, the paint colors work well or "look right" in game. There's a mix of light, dark, vibrant and muted colors.

i usually keep quiet about my CC download sprees (not that anyone asked) but i HAD to speak up

taking the time and effort to categorize and separate your wallpaper types was seriously considerate and thoughtful, it's something i always look for but also understand that creators do what they want in the end and it's not something you have to go out of your way for!!

so not only do you get amazing content, it's also made with user convenience in mind -- it's an absolute thing of beauty. thank you so much for this and all that you do. ♥♥♥♥

At first I only downloaded some of your wonderful set (and it took a long time to choose which) but I find I keep coming back for more. It's made so much easier by your categorising so I can still pick and choose. Really, really appreciate this, especially as I recently downloaded cc which was not even named helpfully.

God I was so sick of the (mostly ugly) Maxis walls. These are gorgeous, thank you so much.
