Dirty Stripes... with Adjustable Dirt!

I've always been a fan of faded, distressed, old stuff in the Sims, and had several aged wall and floor mods in Sims 2. Sims 3 comes with lots of very nice old, worn monochrome textures and materials like woods and tiles... but few multicolor ones suitable for old walls, rugs, curtains etc.

So I was motivated to see what I could do with a Sims 3 pattern, and discovered that the layering system used in CaST patterns lets you have adjustable dirt The dirt in these patterns has its own channel, and depending on how you color it, you can apply mold and mildew (green color), heavy or light dust and dirt (medium gray to black), yellowing or uneven fading (light gold or gray to white).

For my first pass at this, I've provided wide and narrow stripes in horizontal and vertical orientations. All patterns have three colors (two stripe colors plus dirt), and they're in the catalog under "geometric".

You can of course use these for solid colors too by making the two stripes the same color, like the rug, curtains and baseboard in the screen below.
