I wasn't happy with the carpet patterns in TS3, so I went and pulled my favorites from TS2. While I was there I pulled some other patterns as well. Most are one-channel for obvious reasons, but I was able to get a couple of multi-channel patterns out of this. It took me a few tries but I think I've got the system down pretty well now. :D

Any tips for improvement are welcome and appreciated, as this is my first set.

Items are further described below. <3

Notes: (1) The colors on the floor are the default colors. (2) Bigger pictures are attached.

ETA MINOR ERROR: The pic says "Marvelous Marble" is under tile, but I put it in the Rocks & Stones category with the other marble.



Sharing Policy:
I couldn't care less. Well, okay, I could: pay-places are bad and if my patterns end up in such an environment they shall surely shrivel and die.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to HP for the tutorial.
Thanks to Delphy for the Pattern Packager.
Thanks to Adobe for the Photoshop.
Thanks to my momma for these good looks.

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.
