I've been meaning to get these particular patterns out for about a year now. I'm happy to be able to share them with you, finally, and I hope you find them useful.

The patterns are based off of terrains by Spiral Graphics. All of the terrains used are royalty free, and I encourage you to go there and maybe find some creative ideas.

Source pics:

There are 9 patterns in the following categories in CAS:

Battered Robot: Abstract with 4 channels/layers
Battered Robot Small: Abstract with 4 channels/layers
Bronzed Armor: Metal with 3 channels/layers
Bronzed Armor Small: Metal with 3 channels/layers
Rusted Iron: Metal with 3 channels/layers
Sandy Brick with Lichen: Masonry with 4 channels/layers
Sandy Bubbly Brick: Masonry with 3 channels/layers
Sandy Hopscotch Tile: Masonry with 3 channels/layers
Streaky Paint Job: Paint with 2 channels/layers


In this pic, the patterns may look the same colour, but the source pic really is lighter:

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.
