Modified EA wall with twisted motif crown moulding (baseboard replaced)
Updated: 30th Sep 2022 at 9:07 PM
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).
Update 30 September
Replacement file uploaded, with better specular and normal maps, although the difference in-game is minimal.

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.
