Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
To be brief, tomvanroosmalen requested these so I made them. :}

I hope I was able to convert them without causing them to lose their charm, as a few tones are always lost in such conversions. I think they came out nice though. Notice that most of them have at least two color channels, so that you can match the wood grain and all that shizzle exactly to your liking.

Notes: (1) The colors on the wall are the default colors. (2) Bigger pictures are attached.

Walk the Plank, Slimming Oak, and Rustic Pine can be found in the wood category. Sid's Cement, Stucco, and Discrete Concrete are masonry. (Duh?)



Sharing Policy:
Sharing is caring and it can be fun. Feel free to include patterns with lots/Sims/etc as long as you're not uploading to a pay site. Edit as you wish. In fact, if you want the original extracted .jpegs or converted .dds files just ask.

Requests:
Since it's obvious I take requests, I should warn you that I am in no way prompt in filling requests.

Additional Credits:
I did everything myself. I taught myself how to make patterns, and I even coded a little program called "Plum's Pattern Packager" (patent pending) that makes it easy to put patterns in game. CALL ME A LIAR I DARE YOU.

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.

That works for floors, but not for wood on other objects. Hence why most of the Maxis woods swing both ways.

Hm, didn't think of that.

Honestly, I might get around to it at some point, but I'm pretty burnt out on patterns right now. If someone wants to PM me and ask for the DDS files and do it yourself that's fine with me. You can even post them in a new MTS thread with your shiny name in lights.

Thanks for creating these. In fact I was surprised to see some TS2 floors here on MTS.info and I thought that I would install them in my game and I swear to God they look amazing. Thanks again for making these :D

Unfortunatly, I cannot seem to get these to work. They are in my Mods/Packages folder, but they don't show up in-game. Can anyone help?

Do you have any other patterns in your game that do work? Just trying to determine if it's my packages that are causing you a problem or if we're starting from scratch here.

I have a few texture packages in my folder, however, these do not work, either.

I have your textures, wood replacement textures, tattoos, eye replacements and a custom swimsuit. The swimsuit works, not sure about the eyes (Never saw the default :P) and the tattoos don't work. I just added the wood replacement textures recently, and I believe they work.

I have a few other things, although they work fine.

So you have stuff that works and stuff that doesn't... Are all of these items in your Mods/Packages folder, and are you using Delphy's Resource.cfg?

Everything is in the Mods/Packages folder. I don't think I am using Delphy's resource.

In that case... I have no idea. Sorry! I'm not all that tech savvy. Browse around the help forum, and if none of those solutions work then making you own thread'll get you help from someone smarter than me.

Is it just these patterns or is it these patterns and other things you've downloaded?
Test Subject
#47 Old 3rd Aug 2009 at 3:02 AM
Just these patterns. I have other patterns, hairs, houses, clothes, etc installed just fine. Not sure what it could be. I've tried installing them a dozen different ways and nothing seems to work. I do have 1.3 and I do have Delphy's installer monkey installed. No hacks or core mods.

Hmm... I hope it doesn't have to do with the patch. After I patch my game I'll have to check to be sure they're still working. I can't imagine what else it would be, seeing as I made them with Delphy's Pattern Packager just like possibly all of the other patterns on MTS.

Please let me know if you figure it out, and I'll do likewise. Sorry they're not working for you!

Nah, can't be the patch because I downloaded and installed them days (a week maybe?) before patching my game. I'm not sure what else it could be either, other than my game is just funky. -kicks it-
