Haunted Mansion Patterns

Ooooh, spooky!

These patterns are inspired by some really kickass wallpapers found in Disney's Haunted Mansion. Specifically, the beautiful art nouveau inspired arcing florals of the foyer, and the very dark and spooky damask "eyes" type wallpaper found in the hall. Set to dark colours, these patterns are suitable for haunted, gothic, and dark-natured homes - but they also work great in light colours for more traditional homes.


The hallway wallpaper comes in one size, and two versions: clean and dirty.

The foyer wallpaper comes in two sizes: large and small, and comes in two versions each size: clean and dirty.

The clean patterns have 3 recolourable channels. The dirty patterns have 4, with the dirt layer as the 4th channel.

All patterns are under "Themed."

Install Instructions:

Just CLICK HERE and follow the instructions. I highly recommend using the Helper Monkey if you're not capable of advanced computer use such as copy-pasting files and creating folders.

Thanks to:

Delphy, for his Pattern Packager
Skrandi, for the info on making dirt layers.
In-Game Category: Themed

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.
