So, I've made five more Victorian-esque patterns. The first two can be found here.


These are numbered 3-7. All of them are in the Themed category.


Pattern 3 (Birds) has 2 editable colours. It comes from www.pixelbrush.ru.
Pattern 4 (stripy pattern) has 3 editable colours, and comes from The Inspiration Gallery. I made it in 2 sizes, you will find both in the archive.


Pattern 5 (the one in the centre) also has 3 editable colours.
Pattern 6 (faded blue flowers) has 2 editable colours. It looks kind of faded. At first I removed the faded effect, but I thought it looks better this way.


Pattern 7 (the last one) has 3 editable colours. I made it in two sizes, placed in separate archives.
Patterns 5-7 come from Grafamania

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.
