"Disorientation" - a floral pattern (3 editable colours)

This pattern originally came from Fat Strawberry. My contribution is making it compatible with CAST (3 editable colours)

It is a vibrant floral pattern that looks especially good on larger surfaces, like bedspreads, carpets, and walls. Oh yes, it is completely seamless.


You will find it in the Abstract category.

P. S. This pattern is free to use in any way you like.

P. P. S. I think I've figured out a pretty fast and workable method for making patterns CAST-compatible using the GIMP. I wonder if I can write a tutorial and post it on MTS.

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.

Well done, have to admit I probably won't use this one very often, but for when I want some 70's Curtains/furnishings I'm now covered.

My eyes hurt a little, but I'm covered! Heh, nice work.

Oooh, nice! Good job!
I like this Fat Strawberry website, are you going to do more of their patterns?

I'm always in for an easier way to make patterns! (I really want to make patterns, but the other tutorial really scared me off xD)

Thanks for you pattern. I like it. But for using it to the cars..... I have to say, I find it a little strange.

I really love your groovy and hippy 70's pattern especially your pink color.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
