It has been almost 4 years since Pixelhate first published his FullPoster Wall Overlays (MTS link). When I first ran into them, I was overjoyed: they made a new level of detail possible! Fantastic...

However, as time passed, I run into some details that I didn't agree with, and set out to change those.
  • The overlays were sold at §30, but were mostly used for adding cracks, smudges and filth to walls... things that would normally LOWER the value of a lot. So I changed the price. I made them FREE.
  • The overlays had a room score of 1. Now I had made them free, I didn't like them improving the environment for my sims. A smudge or crack wouldn't do that... So I removed the room score.
  • As wall hangings, the overlays are considered art-work: sims will view them, comment on them, and approve or disapprove of them as if they were precious works of art! A damaged wall doesn't deserve such attention... So I found out how to disable that!

I've relayed my findings to Pix, and found out that he actually agrees with me, and thinks these changes should be available to everyone. However, since he isn't presently in a position to make the changes, test stuff and publish them, he has allowed me to host them for the time being.

So without further ado: here are updated versions of the 1-tile and 2-tile FullPost Wall Overlays, in separate files.

For those who want to learn how to make such changes themselves: a wiki article is available here.

Happy Simming!

I've used quite a few mods by others, thus taking FROM the community. With the work that *I* create, I'm hoping to give something back TO the community.

Do with my work whatever the &#$% you like. If you re-use, edit and republish my work, I consider it a compliment. Especially if you let me know about it, and mention me in the credits.

But, although I would *appreciate* the note and the credits, if you choose to be a dick and act as if YOU created my mods, there's not a whole lot I can do to stop you, so I won't even TRY.

That's a YES to both questions, Elaine. This version was meant to REPLACE Pixelhate's originals, so they would use the same recolors without you having to think about it. And to do that, they needed to have exactly the same GUID, which means you can have only one set in your game: his or mine.

I hope this helps Smile
