I hope the Picture says it all.

All Normalmaps exept the ones with Ropes where wrong since we got the Game, EA never fixed them.

Now you could build a Logcabin with proper looking Walls.
The Package contains only the reworked Normalmaps for the following walls:
Horizontal Timbered Wall
Horizontal Timbered Wall with Intersection – Right Side
Horizontal Timbered Wall with Intersection – Left Side
Horizontal Timbered Wall with Fieldstone Dado
to override the default ones.

Put it in your Mods- or if you have Overrides folder.

Game requirements:

This mod overrides the following resources:


Because they are only image files the possibility for conflicts is low.

Oh thank goodness, I was really hoping you would start fixing Sims 3, Havelock- I downloaded all of your fixes for Sims 2! This one was really bugging me.

Thanks SO much for this! This has always pissed me off to no end, but I continued to use the walls because I liked the designs anyway Thanks again!

Fantastic stuff! It's things like this, and text errors, that I would expect be included in "extra polish" mentioned in the patch notes but that never are.

I've built four cabins in the sims 3 and never noticed any issues. I'll have to take another look at my cabins. This may be worth a download. Thanks for sharing.

strangely, this problem does not seem to affect the console version of the game. I wonder why?
