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.

Congrats on featured!
By the way, is this a default replacement set or customs? I don't want a whole bunch of these lovelies as customs and keep the fuglies...

Yes it is a late date for so much awesomeness, but this is too hot. I wonder if it's possible to hide Maxis walls and use these ones instead. I believe that is what I'll do. Thanks for all the work on this! :D

@Kankritty and @billielith These aren't default replacements and it is possible to hide Maxis walls. Almighty Hat did an amazing job of creating and compiling catalog hiders HERE. The wall hiders are towards the bottom.

And thanks everyone for the congrats and the nice comments -- it makes sharing CC feel worthwhile and are very much appreciated.
