Another set of walls, yay. I needed these for a certain type of lot I'm building, basically carriage houses with living space on the upper floor and using the garage area below as, for now, a home business. So I wanted something garage-y (because the building will eventually be a garage, once the home business generates enough income to buy and build on a community lot) but a little jazzier than just plain stucco. So I went off to real-world exterior finish manufacturers for ideas and at Parex eventually found and liked:


These are composite walls, made of concrete but with colored pebbles and shiny bits of recycled colored glass tossed in to give them color, texture, and interest. For the game, I nabbed pictures from the manufacturer's site and then edited them to make them work for the game. Which means that each of these is actually a slightly different texture, not the same texture in various colors. Here's a swatch of the 15 textures/colors:



The swatch was made from in-game pics taken fairly close up to show more detail on a sunny-side wall. And because I was in a mood to fart around with pictures, have a couple more pics of some of the colors on the sample house, with one more attached:



These are all found in the "Poured" Wall Covering subcategory and they cost $8. The files are Compressorized and clearly named. There's a copy of the color swatch above in the zip file to help with picking and choosing colors if you don't want them all. And...that's all I've got.
