In the next update I will be adding a "taped" drywall/gypsum material option:



This is primarily for garages and other semi-finished spaces, so that a more realistic look is obtained.  The tiling of the gypsum is 4x8 sheets oriented horizontally.  The texture is mostly seamless, so I am fairly pleased with it.  If there is further interest I could also provide a 4x12 option as well, but for now I feel like the 4x8 option is probably the most standard and should suffice for most projects.
