Forest Mural

305 Thanks Say Thanks
I was creating a spa and gym lot for Moonlight Falls and wanted a pretty mural along the back wall. Except I couldn't find one I liked. I cloned the mural walls from Generations and created my own set of walls using a picture from Skyrim. The package contains 4 separate walls that, when placed side by side, create a lovely mural. The walls are seamless so you can continue the mural for as long as your wall happens to be. Because they are cloned from a Generations wall, you will need that expansion pack for these to show up.

Wall Information:
  • All 4 pieces are in "Wall Sets"
  • ยง15 apiece
  • 1 recolorable channel, like the Generations walls
Known issue: These walls do join with other walls that have the same height baseboards. However, EA did not include much of a shadow on the mural walls. Combined with how dark the bottom of my mural is, the baseboards can look a little flat. They look better with a grained wood pattern. I included a picture for comparison.

Additional Credits:
HystericalParoxysm who wonderfully helped edit the edges so these walls would be truly seamless.

Quick Guide:

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.
