UPDATE

As I was informed by lilith657, these are NOT runic characters. She suggested that they looked more like Sanskrit, so I went searching. Yes, they are Sanskrit, Khmer Sanskrit to be exact.

I heartily apologize to all, and have corrected my mistake. I will definitely be presenting these properly in my next post of these characters. I appreciate your understanding.





Here you'll find Khmer Sanskrit alphabet. I have made 2 sizes for each

pattern, totally 14 patterns today. Each pattern has 2 channels/layers to work with.









Notice the curves and style.








So, enjoy these patterns found in the Theme category, and look for more on the way!

Sim on!

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.

I'm a little confused to say the least. I've been studying runes for nearly 15 years now and I have NEVER seen any runes like those before. Which language are these runes (displayed in pics) in? I have to say it looks more like a Sanscrit based alphabet and not a runic one to me. I say this as runes are not curved in shape - always straight lines (easier to carve straight lines in stone than curved ones).

I know. I went looking myself to find the meanings of these. I used a Gimp brush to make them. Of course I couldn't find them. Some of them did resemble slightly runic characters, slightly :-)

I'm going to check out Sanscrit and see if that's what they really are. Inquiring minds want to know!

Thanks for the info to get me started lilith657! I really do appreciate it.



Edit:

Okay lilith657, I found that these are indeed sanskrit ---- Khmer Sanskrit.

So, with egg on my face I apologize to everyone and will name my next set accordingly.

Well they are beautiful no matter what language they're from. I always thought Sanskrit had lovely script when I've seen it, but I wouldn't have been able to properly identify it either! I would've guessed they were from somewhere around the middle east... Knowing they are Sanskrit, though, I can think of a few of my sims that would like to have them decorating their homes!

Glad you found out which alphabet was used there - it was pickling my head I got all confused and thought another runic alphabet system was out there all unread by me, which would not do! Thanx for doing the homework and finding out where the script was from, and letting us know. The beauty of the pattern is more meaningful when you know origins (or so thinks me).

I agree completely. And thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Now, for the rest of the set.....

Thanks again for adding some culture to the otherwise vanilla version of the game as provided by EA. You keep adding to the site and I'll keep adding to my collection!
