Pattern set: Moroccan tiles

quite a big set today.
I felt the base game lacked some decent tiling, so I went a bit overboard with this.

You'll find a total of eleven patterns in here, with eight unique designs, and three small versions of some of those designs.

All patterns have four changeable colour options.
All can be found in 'Tiled/Mosaic'.

Most of them have an artisan, worn feel to them, while the Sun and Circles patterns are more 'clean'.

You can find install instructions here.

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.

Wonderful I was thinking of doing a set of Arabic tiles. I love how they can make so many different patterns.

Gorgeous! Here I am, just NOW getting my Sims3 pre-order (arrived June 16) and in the meantime, you've not only installed the Sims3, but have created some really fantabulous tiles!

Thanks! :0)

I love the patterns you have been making. Are you thinking of doing any LOTR style patterns? I bet you could make some awesome ones.

Not only are they spectacular, but your screenshots really show them off with some great examples. O for Orsum!

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so astonished!

Ooooh, very pretty! Honestly, I've liked all of your patterns for TS3 so far, I can't imagine NOT liking these. Thank you!

These are a beautiful addition to what you have already posted so far

I will concur with JanetteRaven though - you did some beautiful elven/faye style things for TS2, and I'd love to see some from you again when you are so inclined *)
(ill get on my knees and beg if that will help ! )

I was thinking while decorating homes (I hope it makes sense in english), that the only thing I really missed from Sims 2 was all the CC with an ethnic look, like african masks, moroccan or mexican tiles... Well here I go ! :D
