There seems to be an issue with this wall papers. If a lot that uses them is exported to a sim3pack, that pack will not install back into the game. I will be looking into a solution and get it fixed as soon as I can.


This is an expansion of base game Alternating Quoin Walls with Elaborate Crown and Baseboard Moulding. These ten pieces match perfectly with the five provided by EA, retaining the same CAST channels. Your dream of quoins everywhere can now come true!

They are found in the both Rock & Stone and Masonry wall categories. Walls with only quoins cost 8, ones with only crowns or baseboards cost 7, and walls with both quoins and mouldings cost 10.

I highly recommend grabbing Buckley's Foundation Wall Fix to round out the set, providing perfectly matching flat wall for any middle bits.

Thank you to Johnny_Bravo and attuned for giving these guys a test run!

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.
