Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


I got even crazier, and made another set of patterns. 24 new brick patterns!

Pattern Info
This is a big set, so I've had to post the patterns in to 3 sets/files, for your convenience. You don't need to download all 24 patterns if you only like a few, and if you use them in your uploads, the downloader doesn't need to get them all either. Below is a table of the info, linking to individual set posts in this thread, that have the detail pictures of each pattern.

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 really like both these and your wood patterns. I especially like that you kept them at 1 layer. In my opinion, patterns like these don't need to be more then one layer, unless you make the grout a different color. I like the simplicity of the single color. I hope that you make more patterns like these. I will definitely use them if you do...thank you for sharing.

These are fabulous! Your tiling is excellent, and brick has always been a favorite pattern of mine. Great selection!
