Busted Rust. Named so because it rhymes and I'm not feeling creative. Tiles seamlessly but looks best on thinner objects. In metal category. 4 colors in the palette.

My first try at patterns. Yay.



Additional Credits:
Thanks to Delphy & Hysterical Paroxysm for the nifty program and tutorial.

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.

Totally realistic. I try to avoid touching rust and my first instinct was to pull my hands away. Great job!

Thank you! ^_^ I've been hoping for something like this, perfect for my "Poverty sims" lol.. because most of those textures in the game look so "Clean and shiny" T.T that after getting even the cheapest of items, my "Poor sims" no longer look so "Poor" lol....

great for the garden shed or a rusty old car, cheers! (now we just need some battered, dented old cars and we could make a scrapyard LOL)

I like work, it fascinates me.
I could sit & watch it all day!
