Everyone and their dog has made damask wallpaper for this game, it seems, yet when I needed one, I couldn't find precisely what I needed. At least not quickly enough for my patience to run out with sifting through all the gothy/grungy stuff I didn't want. So...I just went ahead and made what I wanted. I ended up with 14 different colors, even though I only needed two or three of them. Perhaps someone else will find use for them as well.

Here's one of the colors on a wall in inside lighting but with the ceiling turned off so that the crown mold (Which is Maxis's and, in fact, the kick mold on the bottom is the same thing cunningly flipped over) doesn't get chopped off:

Here's the same color with the ceiling turned on, so choppity-chop if you have AL like I do:

And here are all the colors on the same wall as the pics above but zoomed in closer to show more detail:

As you can see, they're all either pastels or sort-of jewel tones but they're all kind of washed-out as well, which was deliberate on my part because I wanted them sort of faded and worn-looking but not all the way to grungy.

At some point, if I need them, I might make more pieces of these, like with the crown/kick removed and maybe some with chair rail added and/or versions with beadboard or coffered wainscoting or something like that, but for now this is all I've got. So if you need yet more damask walls in your game...Well, here you go. They're Compressorized already, for all that it only knocks a couple of kilobytes off the file size. The color swatch is included in the zip, to help with weeding out colors you don't want. You'll find them in the Wallpaper category in your game, and they cost...uh...uh...Crap, I forget, and I'm not feeling like firing up Homecrafter to check. Pretty sure it's around $10 or $12, though. Hey, damask is expensive, kids!

Finally, program credits, since I've never done them before but am told that it would be polite:
Photoshop CS2 because that's the version that doesn't suck all the RAM out of this little netbook.
Homecrafter, but I DON'T thank its lame-o file naming that I always have to fix. *eye roll*
Jfade's Compressorizer, which is awesomeness.
And in this case I'm pretty sure the damask pattern I used is from The Inspiration Gallery, but don't quote me on that because I did a tour around the Internet in search of pre-tiled damask patterns so that I didn't have to screw around with doing it myself. I nabbed a bunch from various places and didn't note down what came from where. Whoops.
