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.

A huge thank you, not only for the actual walls, but for going through the trouble to label and organise them, having such detailed images and tables PLUS creating the collection folder. Seeing how massive the amount was, I almost shyed away since I don't have the patience to plop 700+ walls in my DL folder and then go through them all in-game, but the Sampler file (along with the Category files) makes it much easier for us downloaders to enjoy your work.
This truly deserves to be featured.

I can't always find Maxis wallpapers that go well with my interior decor, so it's very nice to have so many new choices :)

I've been playing a lot of Sims 4 and 3, I decided to re-visit Sims 2 and while building houses I never realized how UGLY the wall colours are. So thank god I found this!! Thank you so much.

These look very nice and beautiful, but I just wish these were also for The Sims 3 instead of just The Sims 2.

Holy paint, Batman! This is insane and one of my newest favorite finds on MTS. I have quite an affinity for crown moldings and paint...You rock!!
This was a huge project and I can't imagine how much time and energy you put into this. Just wow.
