Color Burst: Mix-n-Match Plates and Bowls

Part two of my holiday/anniversary upload is a set called Colorburst. Colorburst is a set of four plate designs sent in by mzgabbster. These are a little bit different than my other default dinnerware set because the bowl and plate textures are in separate files. Meaning, you can mix-n-match the plates and bowls freely. Normally I combine plates and bowls because it saves game resources by having one less package to read. However, there are so many delicious colors in these plates that I couldn't decide on one color combination..

There are four plates and six bowls. According to T9-86, that means there are 24 combinations!

These are not compatible with my other dinnerware sets. Meaning that you can't take a bowl package from this upload and pair it with a set from another upload. You'll have to merge the two packages together using S3PE.

Follow this tutorial, here, for an in depth guide on merging packages.

Thanks to mzgabbster for submitting these awesome designs!

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.

I love these! Quick question though, do I have to just download 1 plate and 1 bowl file or can I download multiple? Is it limited, basically??

Yes. Only one plate and one bowl at a time.
