Holy crap, custom patterns!

Yes, folks, it's true - these are fully custom patterns for The Sims 3. These are not just colour-slidered versions of the ones that come with the game - they're fully separate, unique, and full of kickassitude and win.

Groovy retro patterns inspired by real retro/vintage wallpaper and fabric designs. Suitable for wallpapers, bedspreads, and really funky clothes - or whatever your heart desires! All patterns have 4 colour options and show up in Abstract.


But how did you do it?!

Magic and pancakes!

Get out those vector editors because it is tedious, time-consuming, and about as much fun as poking yourself in the eye with a sharp stick over the course of several hours. But if you're just a glutton for punishment, here's a tutorial.


Version 1

These can be considered version 1 - smaller file sizes coming soon! These are also highly experimental and may not be perfect - if they blow up your computer, eat all your gummi bears, or make a pass at your sister, well, don't be too surprised. I've used 'em myself and had others test them so they do work.


How do I use them?!

Do what it says. No whining about RARs - you should know this stuff by now!


Special thanks go to:

Delphy, for putting up with my "it doesn't work" - "no, it still doesn't work" - "now I found a bug" - "hey, it crashed" - for hours on end.

All you crazy cats who figured out the back-end gubbins. You know who you are.

Silent and Emino, for testing.
