Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


I got a little crazy, and made a set of wood patterns. 32 patterns to be exact...

You can divide that number by two though, cause I made 2 orientations of each pattern. So yea, 16 new patterns, that come both vertical and horizontal!

Pattern Info
This is once again such a huge set, so I've had to post the patterns in to 4 sets/files, for your convenience. You don't need to download all 32 patterns if you only like a few, and if you use them in your uploads, the downloader doesn't need to get them all either. Below is a table of the info, linking to individual set posts in this thread, that have the detail pictures of each 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.

Default Patterns 1-4_v2

Patterns 3 and 3_v2 are mainly meant to be used only on walls and CFE'd roofs, thus the images may seem a bit funny. But Since the game is full of objects, and there is even more CC objects, I can't tell if you come up with more use for those two.

I love them Armiel! Is it possible you can make them multi-swatch? On the brick one for example I want the grout different from the bricks. I love the new patterns anyways. Is it possible you can do tiles? The current tiles suck,

(was that a request, should I report you? )

I was pondering about tiles too, so perhaps. What comes to multi color patterns, I'm not there yet. Tried with a lattice patterns and lost my nerves. So maybe a lot later. :P

You can always make the ones you want multi-channel so yourself as well, I have a totally open policy.

#15 Old 2nd Sep 2013 at 12:16 AM
Please don't report me.
I never knew that multi color patterns were difficult since darn EA doesn't make CAW and CAP for Mac. I only know of CAW because I used to use it on my PC (before it died).
I'll look forward to if you make tile patterns. The other ones don't bother me as much.
I think you could ask sailfinddragon. They have made multi-color patterns and lots of custom patterns. I enjoy their geometric patterns.
Keep up the great work, Armiel!

I accidentally deleted all my patterns (still not sure how as I have 4+ copies of everything else) and just came online to find new stuff and ran across these, which are perfect for my style :)
