An add-on for the Maxis "Simple Siding" with an edge on both sides. This is useful for fixing the little hiccups that the game will produce when it tries to decide where to put the edges.

I would recommend to use these in conjunction with this override ("More Corners" for all of the Maxis siding -- less annoyingness to begin with). A similar add-on for the "Clapboard Crush" is available here.


Fig. 1: Argh!


Fig. 2: Fixed!

This is a regular custom wallpaper and thus won't conflict with anything. 12 colours (i.e. all of the defaults), 3 wall heights each. Found in the catalogue under "Siding", costs 4§ like its Maxis relatives.

I love this so much! I can finally get proper edging on my builds. Are you planning on doing it for the other sidings or some of the brick?

The fact that you're getting into TS4 is promising. I never understand why EA don't include these pieces. I'm still iffy about the game's future, but if creators like you are getting on board it's a good sign.

What do you mean by "the walls and floors" -- all walls and floors? If so, then please post in Help. (You cannot have a floor problem with this download, as there are no floors in this)

Thanks so much for this. I have been using columns to imitate the missing edges.

I adore all of the cc you make, and have most of it in my game! It makes everything SO much better! Also, the house you're using to show the siding in effect is really neat, do you maybe have a download for it, even if it's just a shell? :3

There is no download for that, no. If I upload that at some point I'll hopefully remember to put a link in the first post.
