Maxis Mixes Neutrals Set

by wndy26 Posted 2nd Jun 2007 at 7:42 AM - Updated 4th Jun 2007 at 9:37 AM by wndy26 : Renamed Set
13 Comments / replies (Who?) - 12 Feedback Posts
This set has four different outdoor wall coverings that are half brick and half siding. I used one Maxis red brick wall and four different light/white colored siding to create the set. My template was an original Maxis wall with chair molding in order to get perfect placement for the brick molding between the brick and siding. I hope you enjoy.

Included files:

Brick and Angled Clapboard in White Wood
Brick and Aluminum Siding in White
Brick and Clapboard in Eggshell
Brick and Cream colored Siding

Update - once my website finally gets up and running, the files will be renamed to match the other Maxis Mixes Sets.

I can do that for ya. Do you have a specific brick in mind or is this one ok? I can use a different brick if you like.

These are lovely! It's a great idea, yet so simple.

I second the desire for blues and yellows, maybe pinks and lavenders as well. Not that you should feel like you have to -- it's very sweet of you to have made us as much as you have!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html

wndy26, congrats on your post! And you should go hit the 'edit' button below your post and you can untick the seasons requirement.

Also, in the future, you should put your game back into live mode so that the square markings on the ground and grass don't show - go look through the Creator Guidelines area for various bits of information.

Great idea, and great execution

Thanks Tig, I got the edit made and I will remember that about the markings on the ground. Also, I think I read somewhere early this morning that you can click on the design tool and it goes away too. Any tips on where the print screen key is on a zboard gaming keyboard? I would prefer to use that instead of the in-game camera but my computer's graphics aren't good enough so I am using my fiance's gaming pc.

Update: I finally located the print screen key on the Merc Zboard gaming keyboard...future screenshots should look way better! Hurrah Me!

I have three more sets coming as soon as our wonderful moderators get to them. All the brick is the same as the ones in this set- I just added the many varieties of colored siding. Glad you liked them!
