This set might look a little mixed, but I didn't see a point in uploading these separately.

What I have done?

I have been annoyed by the fact that EA's wall_full_siding left and right have a pretty corner, but it's not separatedly castable. So I made it so.



There is one preset as you can see on the pic. Two castable channels instead of one in the original.

File names are:
wall_full_siding_left_castable_corner and wall_full_siding_right_castable_corner
Cost: 8 §


Then I have been annoyed by the large bathroom tile by EA too (yes, many things EA make annoy me ). So I fixed the top.



The wall still has 3 castable channels, but the top is prettier now One preset, the one in picture.

File name is: wall_tile_bathroom large_fixed
Cost: 5 §


And last thing I did was make a wall out of EA's floor tile.



I like the floortile, and I wanted a wall to match it. So I made one. 3 castable channels, one preset, the one in pic.

File name is: wall_tile_floor_copy
Cost: 4 §


The walls are base game compatible. These are not default replacements, and can be found in walls -> tiles and wood walls.




What to download?
I have packed the walls separatedly and all-in-one. The rar-files have explanations, read them to decide which one you want. Just some or all. NOTE: If you decide to download the one that says (all) then you don't need to download any other rars.

TSRW, Photoshop and Paint.Net being the programs I used.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks, I really love using these new sliding walls - so much that I redid my whole town with these walls. However, I was wondering if you could make a version that has both sides with the white strip, because that would really make my day. But thanks anyway, I really appreciate these!
