Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I hope not be the unic that not like the TS3 bricks... For them, here are 10 brick patterns.
All have four palettes less brick_4(it has three).
You can find under Masonry.
The base color is not very shiny but in pictures...

I hope you enjoy it ...

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.

Thank you! I was so tired of seeing the uniformed brickwork when I was building houses for my poorer sims.

I love these! They look so much more realistic! Thanks!

I will look when I get them in my game but, do any of these by chance look like any of the brick fences?

I was wondering about bricks in N°3. I reassure myself now; there will be quality stuff for them.
Just hoping that you will not abandon n°2....

I don't seem to be able to get these to work. I've copied the packages to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages but they're not showing up under masonry. As a matter of fact, there is nothing showing for any custom content. I know that Sims3 is working by reading other packages (No Intro, Investments, No Mosaic, etc). I also tried putting this under Patterns, but still no go? Are all of these supposed to be copied, or just one?

The Patterns don't show with the flower (custom content)... But in my game, yes, they show under masonry...

Ahhh.. Ok, I'll have to check under there. I was going into the build mode, not the create a style. I'll check that out when I get home.
