Hey guys.
This is my first upload on MTS, so if I do anything wrong, let me know ;D (I'm new to the custom content-making bandwagon too)

Stuff you're going to download: 4 retro nature-loving patterns for your Green Thumbs. They look pretty lovely on walls (as illustrated in screenshots), but would do awesome on anything else.
They are categorised under 'Geometric'.

Note-worthy things:
o1- Retro1 has 3 recolourable parts;

o2- Retro2 has 4 recolourable parts, background, and 3 geometric/wave shapes;

o3- Retro3, like Retro2, has 4 recolourable parts;

o4- Retro4 is a little tricky. It has 5 colours altogether, but only the shapes are recolourable. The light grey background is, unfortunately, not recolourable.

Installation instructions here.

All these patterns come from Designious (part of a freebie giveaway from a magazine) so let us thank them instead I only imported them into the game.

Hope you enjoy these yummy things ;D

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
