Classic Tumbled Bricks

This brick has 3 recolourable subsets.
This brick was requested by somebody on another forum who saw my Luse Tile Pattern and wanted me to make a brick as well. The image I made this pattern from was provided by her.

Here is a picture of it as a repeated pattern to show how it remains seamless.



This image is how it looks in game.



Another image, showing another set of colours in the palette to show you the non default colours.



Where You Can Find This?
This download is a pattern -- So you will be able to find it in Create-A-Style --> Masonry.

Additional Credits:
kissme87 for the base image I used to create the pattern.

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.

I'm in the process of uploading it. There's a lot of CC to sift through and delete, so I'll let you know what it's uploaded.

Default Not Installing WA 2.3
Looks awesome, but it's not installing in WA 2.3. Will appear to install and then remain in the Downloads folder as uninstalled. Anyone else having this problem?

Cheers

To fix that, download the .package instead of the .sims3pack.
That problem has arisen for some people for all .sims3pack items and that's why I have uploaded the .package for you to download.
The download instructions can be found on a tab on this page.
