Interior Wall Collection: A catalog makeover.

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.

Flippin heck honeywell, this is legend - wait for it - ary!! So blown away, had been looking ages for a complete set to maxis walls, someone a long time ago had started a big set and it never was finished, but this, well this just exceeds all!! Said it before and will say it again, you rock!!

Thank you very much.... but I have to ask. Why just one floor tile? Not that I'm complaining one bit, but very curious?

LadyAngel 6th Mar 2016 12:26 AM

I'm always on the lookout for new walls, thank you!

Oh my, this is beyond fantastic! I am such a wall addict...especially brick and paneled walls. Thank you so much for sharing these.

I thought about making coordinating floors for about two seconds but I wouldn't use them and I don't think many others would either? There's also existing Maxis content that work with these walls and there's 15 years worth of really nice CC floors to pick from too. And since this sort of project is satisfying to complete and use, but pure drudgery (for me) to create, I'm more than happy to use the floors I already have. The only exception was the tile wall -- that needed a coordinating floor tile so of course I included that.

Thanks for asking a question so I could blather, Applefeather, and thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I'm really happy to see others will get some use out of these too.

Sweet Jesus, Honeywell! This is amazing! I love all the matchy-ness Yay for whole house consistency! Wonderful job!

FzzyDg8 6th Mar 2016 3:51 AM

Beautiful colors and so many choices, I love them! Thank you for sharing them!!

The amount of work that went into this collection--not only to make the walls, but to organize and present them--is astounding. Thank you for having that much love for the community!

celebkiriedhel 6th Mar 2016 7:57 AM

Wow. Just Wow. This is wonderful....

I wonder if this means I don't have to finish mine that I started years ago? :think:

Klaartje 6th Mar 2016 8:04 AM

Nooooooooo, what are you doing to my downloads folder I finally had it down to a reasonable size again.
/me grabs and downloads anyway. They look absolutely gorgeous, thank you!

HonokaAizawa 6th Mar 2016 8:31 AM

Holy Godmother of Buildmode... this is freaking awesome! :O
Can't find more words, because it's just such a wonderful collection. My download folder already cries! *grabs everything*

I've been on a building spree lately and have been sticking to mostly Maxis wallpapers for the interiors - mainly because I like top/bottom moldings and want them to match room to room. But, NO MORE!! Now I can redo all those interiors with wallpapers I like and that are pretty. Thanks HW!!

RedSimmies 6th Mar 2016 11:33 AM

This is epic. I'm pretty picky about walls, (I have about, what, 2 or 3 sets in my game?) just because I want eveything to match, so this is perfect and might end up being one of the only wall sets I ever use. Thanks!

Amura 6th Mar 2016 12:07 PM

I absolutely love this, it's awesome Honeywell!!
I don't use much CC in my game because most of it is mismatched, but having such a complete set makes a huge difference for me - I'm downloading it all.
Thank you very much, it must have been an awful amount of work.

DiamondIce 6th Mar 2016 3:49 PM

This is awesome, thank you! <3

swampcandy 6th Mar 2016 4:17 PM

God. I'll just take them all, thanks. It's easier to delete individuals ingame thanit is through files (doubt I'll be deleting, though, I've turned into a cc hoarder at this late stage).

kluluplay 6th Mar 2016 4:27 PM

Incredible! I love this, and thank you for all of the work that went into this. What a fantastic collection!

HookerHeels 6th Mar 2016 7:20 PM

Will you marry me?

MacApple 6th Mar 2016 7:43 PM

Considering that I'm having to start my downloads over from scratch, this is actually perfect for me. Thank you!

LadySilverwolf 6th Mar 2016 9:00 PM

I love what you did here, the color coordination, the 'complete-ness' of this set. What an incredible contribution and work of art. Thanks for sharing! *nabs the entire set*

Love your blather! (And I have it on good authority that I am not alone.)

Downloaded the entire set and immediately got into my game to decorate a new house. I love these walls! Going to go through my downloads and get rid of a bunch of other stuff. I think I will only be using these walls from now on! Lovely!

Justpetro 7th Mar 2016 10:47 AM

I am taking them ALL - thank you! They are lovely and I probably will never need another wall again
