This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
A throwback to when a Sim's astrological sign still meant something, the Zodiac Painting Collection is a reminder of a much SIMpler time. Download the whole set and let these beautiful and heavenly visions decorate your Sim home in style.

These lovely watercolor masterpieces are painted by renown fantasy artist Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, whose work regularly appears in Realms of Fantasy Magazine and has adorned covers of books and fantasy gaming materials, alike. This particular set is a sneak peak at the art to be used in Llewellyn's upcoming 2011 astrological calendar and are used with the artist's permission.

Based on "Painting film noir", each painting has a price tag of 160 Simoleons and can be found under Decor/Wall Art. The Zodiac Collection will appear in your catalog as follows:

Zodiac Collection - Aquarius
Zodiac Collection - Aries
Zodiac Collection - Cancer
Zodiac Collection - Capricorn
Zodiac Collection - Geminii
Zodiac Collection - Leo
Zodiac Collection - Libra
Zodiac Collection - Pisces
Zodiac Collection - Sagittarius
Zodiac Collection - Scorpio
Zodiac Collection - Taurus
Zodiac Collection - Virgo

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.

Yes! I have a set of tarot cards designed by this woman too; her work is wonderful and well-worth supporting.
