Here is a new pattern set for you ! This time there are very different kinds of patterns.

You can see the preset colours in the room pictures. Of course you can change the colours freely (examples are shown in the clothing pictures).

"Centro" (4 recolourable palettes, category: Geometric)

"Sternello" (3 recolourable palettes, category: Theme)

"Lochsteifen" (4 recolourable palettes, category: Geometric)

"Spirale" (3 recolourable palettes, category: Abstract)

"Plushy" (2 recolourable palettes (main colour and shadows), category: Leather & Fur)

"Realtowelsmall" (2 recolourable palettes (main colour and shadows), category: Fabric)

"Fliesenkiesel" (2 recolourable palettes (main colour and shadows), category: Tile & Mosaic)

"Glitter" (1 recolourable palette, category: Miscellaneous)

"Glas" (2 recolourable palettes (main colour and shadows), category; Miscellaneous)

Glass and Glitter pattern are not transparent, as patterns can't be transparent. They look good on solid surfaces (like the vases) and on transparent surfaces (like the screen).

I made separate rar-files and named them according to the pictures, so it's easy to choose only the ones you want.

Also check out my first pattern set: Retro and Kids Patterns

Stuff used in the pictures:
From the Sims 3 Store: sofa plant lamp painting transparent screen
From simsartgallery: bathroom painting
From ExoticElements: vase with bamboo

The top is by me and can be found here .

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.

These are some excellent textures! Do you think you would be doing any more stain or frosted glass patterns in the future?

Kinda amazing how often I use every single one of your patterns. They show up in every house, if not in every room. I forgot you made these, as well as your other set.

If you can put all patterns into one All.rar that would be so helpful.
