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.

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.



(thanks HP and Delphy)

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.

I know its a little ex post facto, but I don't suppose you could make a .sims3pack version?
I still can't seem to get these to work in package form >.>
