Do you have a run-down part of town, but not enough color choices of appropriately dingy wall paint to satisfy? Do you like Maxis' Ragged Beachy Keen paints, but can't stand the painted-on flies? Do you look at your downloads and think, "not enough walls yet"...?

Then, have I got a set for you!

This set of 58 total wall coverings are edits of the base-game "Ragged/Distressed/Battered/Tattered/Fades Frames Beachy Keen" paint panels, with icky insects removed, and recolored with nine nicely faded colors to enhance any downtrodden decor. Also included are the three original Beachy Keen panels that are now fly-free for your convenience. "Dirty" should not automatically equate to "infested", after all. Act now, and we'll throw in absolutely free a set of five scummy bathroom tiles ("Mildew's Revenge", "Where's My Sponge?", "Time to Clean", "Not-So-White" and "Grimey Grout") that have had the blue border removed to allow them to fit into many more themes and decors!

All walls retain their Maxis-made textures and accents, and still tile seamlessly in any configuration. Each color has five matching panels to complete their mural effect. The elongated white blob at the top of the snapshots below is merely an overhead florescent light and me forgetting to hit the 'tab' button before taking pictures; it is not a defect in the panels.

Being Maxis recolors, you are fully allowed to upload these paints with lots, use in any and all ways, as long as A) they remain on free sites if uploaded, and B) I'm not edited out of the catalog's description as the recolorer. Linking back here for the whole set is great, but NOT necessary.

These walls were made with all expansions installed, but are cloned from base-game walls, and so should work with any combination.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
