INTERIOR WALL COLLECTION
A catalog makeover.

I've spent an inordinate amount of time on this project and could prattle on endlessly about the how's and why's of making these walls (and I will if you have any questions) but I'll keep this post short and to the point since there's a lot of information to convey.

OVERVIEW

All of the walls (764 and 1 floor tile) are as complete as possible with appropriate names, pricing and descriptions. There's a little bit of everything (interior wall wise) but the collection as a whole is rather neutral in tone as the walls were made to be the practical, catalog staples I reach for most of the time.

The textures are a mishmash of mostly EA, two web sourced patterns and some hand painting. They're new, bright and clean and don't have as much detail or artifacting as Maxis textures by design - but they're still very much Maxis Match, IMO.

The trim and moldings are white wood by default. A small number of colors come in light and medium wood as well. When toggled on, AL ceilings will cut off part of the crown moldings.

The wall colors (43) are a combination of original Maxis paints, derivatives of Maxis wallpapers and new colors that I probably chose to match existing content. Because of that, the paint colors work well or "look right" in game. There's a mix of light, dark, vibrant and muted colors.
