Dealing with another annoyance here…

I’ve always liked the base-game wall with the twisted motif cornice/crown moulding, apart from its skirting/baseboard. As well as protecting the wall finish, a skirting’s supposed to be there to tidy up the edge, so that the plaster can stop short of the floor, making the plasterer’s job a lot easier. So why does that wall have the main wall colour reappearing below the skirting? I tried just changing the mask so that the skirting colour continued to the bottom of the wall but that looked wrong (and still left the problem of that weird vertical line in the middle of each section). At this point, it occurred to me that the skirting from the wall with the egg-and-dart moulding had a very similar rounded bead but with surrounding detail that made it look a lot better. So I remade the twisted motif wall with the egg-and-dart skirting.

Like version 2 of the wall with the plain high dado, this is based on a barn wall and exports/imports uneventfully as part of a sims3pack house.

There’s a single preset, shown in the main picture, and it can be found in the paint section of the catalogue, at the same price as the original wall (§7).

Replacement file uploaded, with better specular and normal maps, although the difference in-game is minimal.
