Pseudo-fishnet patterns

I'm personally not quite into fishnets, yet I was somehow missing it, so... in hope you were too, I share what I've made to ease my strivings.
This is a pack of three types of fishnet patterns, all of them coming in 3 sizes. These patterns have TWO colourable channels, hence they are called pseudo - they

ARE NOT TRANSPARENT, YOU WILL HAVE TO PLAY AROUND WITH THE COLOUR BAR TO GET THE PROPER COLOUR,

since, as far as I know, we cannot make transparent patterns yet. They aren't too versatile, mainly because fishnet actually isn't either, but they look acceptable on other surfaces than stockings too.
Ah, yes, using them as stockings will still give the form of the knees, however using as gloves will cover nails. Not like I think it's terribly disturbing, but you should know about it.
They all are in the Fabric category, and have a thumbnail of some light skin colour+black, they are really easy to find.
Hope you enjoy it, have fun!

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.

Brilliant! I was just thinking about how there is a lack of fishnet stockings in the base game. Thank you so much!

The chairs, the tables, all confused
We hear the words and must speak them
We take them, and arrange them
But still... they will not be quiet...

Here it's explained how to create transparent parts on clothes. So you can make transparent stockings and then apply this pattern.

Actually, with other color choices I think these patterns look great as regular fabric.

I actually made a pair of fishnets by using one of the patterns in the game and sliding two parts of it to the same colour as my sim's skin (if that makes sense!), but this will make the fiddly CAS process a whole lot quicker. Thanks!

BTW, just thought I'd add that these patterns look great on a lot of things other than stockings With different colors, of course. I like em on clothes and curtains and chairs.
