This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Chalk Hopscotch Court
§20
Nursery -> Toys

I was kind of disappointed with the original hopscotch court from Generations. First of all, it was a rug. Even if you recolored the rug the same color as the floor, the texture was distorted and there was an ugly line around the whole thing.

This hopscotch court is just chalk lines on the ground. Not only is it more realistic, it's much cheaper. The lines are a little wobbly because in reality, it's quite difficult for small children to draw straight lines on the ground. It has two recolorable channels, one for the lines and one for the numbers. The one you see in the screenshots is the only preset.



If you like it, please remember to hit the thanks button!

original: game version 1.22.9
default: game version 1.34.27
requires Generations

Additional Credits: S3PE and S3OC are insanely awesome.
Everyone on #create is equally amazing.

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.

That's great! I was waiting for something like this!
I expected a version that looks like drawn on the ground in the EP and was very disappointed when I realized that it is a rug!!!
Now I will use this everywhere...

I'm not one for bashing or criticizing EA like a lot of people on MTS, but this is fantastic all the same.
