I know I said I wouldn't create for The Sims 3 anymore, at least for a while, and while I still would prefer to create for 2 over 3, I just really had to make these patterns. I tried making them as Sims 2 walls, but they didn't really fit like that. Included is 3 patterns. One Fabric, One Abstract, and One Paint. All of the patterns have one recolorable channel. Some various color choices can be seen in the thumbnails.




In-Game Category: Fabric Abstract Paint

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.

But which is which? If you could please either put in your post the number for each type of pattern or description on the file name that would be a great help, thank you.

I actually have been creating more and more for Sims 3, I have 2 Sims 3 uploads in the moderation queue now. Though I think one of them may get rejected, the other one is so cool.

These look really good, thanks for sharing them. I don't typically download patterns, but these are better done than most I've seen.
