As we all know, most of the Maxis bedding in TS2 was about as attractive as a barrel of nicely-aged yak vomit. Of those few patterns that conscience actually permitted me to inflict on my Sims, I discovered that several are not particularly well-suited to being tiled for use in TS3. However, here are three that I managed to convert, or at least adapt.





The hunting quilt has 3 recolorable subsets, the pink quilt has 4, and the cream bedspread has 2.

For design reasons, the pink quilt is a 'remix' and is not identical to the original pattern. (This version has also been color-adjusted since its initial release at MATY so the default palette better matches the original.)

Please note that these were made using the TSR pattern tool (.packages extracted using the 3Viewer,) and for reasons unknown to me they do not play well with jfade's Compressorizer Redux or Pescado's Recompressor. They will probably quit functioning if put through either of those tools. So don't. :p The cream and pink patterns are both found in the Fabric category and the hunting quilt is under Themed.

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.

Very nice - thank you. And there's quite a few of the Sims 2 beddings that were nice - like the flowered one springs to mind. I wouldn't mind seeing those.

Thank you again!

I just had a wave of nostalgia seeing the pink flowered bedding... and then remembered how horribly slow my poor sims 2 game became from all the custom content I downloaded.... So far my sims 3 is fairing much better! To collect more patterns or not...
