I set out today to make an additional wall for the Red Chicken Wallpaper & Beadboard Set. It was supposed to be simple: add some trim to the double beadboard piece and call it a day. That’s not quite what happened. I put it in my test neighborhood with the other walls, happily opened my test lot with Cyd and Porthos, and discovered nothing lined up with anything. Same was true with the Red Chicken Wallpaper & Paneling set. That’s a problem for my brain. And for your game! So, I remade everything, including the wall I had just made.
If you downloaded the beadboard set or the paneling set before today (October 12, 2017), please take a moment to download them again. The download links have been updated on their respective pages:
Banish the old files to your recycling bin and enjoy new ones that won’t make zigzags in your Sims’ kitchens.
HomeCrafter Plus changes the ID number on the files when you edit, and DJS Sims WTF Editor doesn’t run well on my machine, so the new files will not overwrite the old ones. My apologies. But it gave me a chance to update the file names to indicate they are walls. I really have no idea what was going on with my brain the day I made those original walls.
So, back to the add-on pieces.
I made the double beadboard wall in the Wallpaper & Beadboard set without trim. I originally thought the trim made it look too busy, but the more I thought about it, the more I changed my mind on the matter. And yes, I spend time while driving or sitting in waiting rooms thinking about whether fake wallpaper should have trim. As Sims players, I am assuming this is not an odd concept to you. I eventually decided I would add the trim just so everything matched and I could get really creative in the houses I never actually get around to building. I also decided the set needed flooring. After all, linoleum is our friend!
