Greetings To All,

Today I have some new Paneling all made from Maxis existing content. They are from the Maxis archives of various object textures and repurposed as Walls. There are also two interesting rough texture, Sandstone Stucco walls that may be used inside or outside and will be found in the 'Poured' Wall category with the other stuccos.

The solid panels are mostly smooth, but have a lovely pattern and color. The carved Earl Grey Wainscot Panels are downsized versions of the Maxis original Paneling with three, upper-wall paint color selections - one is color matched to the paneling itself. In these three pictures the full-size, original panel is shown for comparison.

The texture of Dark Green Sandstone Stucco wall is created from the green fence with the Shield Motif and may be used in a Medieval or Goth setting. The pattern for the golden-orange, Sandstone Stucco wall was 'borrowed' from the Matte and Glass Maxis door with the same color. It look good in Southwestern and Asian settings, as well as modern decors. The gorgeous, rich brown ottomans in the picture are from Sandy of Around the Sims 2 and the mesh can be found at her site here - her recolors of this ottoman match the four original Merokken Bazaar Sofas. All other objects shown with the walls are Maxis content.

As always these were created with HomeCrafter Plus, so there should be no compatibility issues.

Thanks to All for your Community Support,

Thank you. Since I dig these out of the Maxis files and they vary in size, I work with the textures until I am happy with the pattern and the way they blend from panel to panel.

In the case of the burled panels, I chose not to blend it in a seamless manner since real burled wood paneling is hard to come by in sheets large enough for paneling and would appear similarly pieced.

Great! I am glad you like them. I love all things wood and I like to try and use textures in interesting ways. I was especially happy with the way the Earl Grey Paneling came out. I try to select some of the less largely attractive or useable wall coverings and make them more appealing. Some of the Maxis walls have so much more potential and it's fun to repurpose the textures in the Maxis object files.

Thank you both,
