Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
For various reasons I had to delay my installation of TS3 for several weeks after the release date. During that time I entertained myself by creating patterns (I just knew I'd be frustrated with the EA options). These are the fruits of that labor.

This upload contains 64 patterns most of which come in three sizes (for a grand total of 188 files). All of the .package files are in the Downloads section. However, because this upload is so large, you will need to check out the Comments section to preview all the offerings.

The screenshot of each pattern gives the file name, the thumbnail for each available size, number of recolor-able channels, and its in-game location. The largest version of each pattern is shown on the walls, the medium scale on the chairs/bed and the smallest on the rug/lamp. I've also included a group of swatches from photoshop that will give you a better idea of the detail in each pattern. A swatch shows a full repeat of the largest version of each pattern. The medium pattern is 1/2 scale and the small 1/3 scale.

I've placed most of my patterns in Abstract based on my personal preference. Those patterns placed in geometric are those that I really felt had to go there, since the category is already full of content and loads slowly enough as is. Themed has been reserved for patterns I felt were only useable for children or in bathrooms.

I hope you like them.

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 so much for your gorgeous patterns. I look forward to using them in-game. And thank you for naming your preview pics similarly to the download files, for those of us who download those as well so we know what the patterns look like. Makes it much easier later when I've forgotten which is which!

This is a test. If this had been a real signature it would have said something. This is only a test.
