High above the tranquil town of Sunset Valley, a shadow looms. The Borked have arrived. Within their Cube, the Borked plot to replace Sunset Valley’s unsuspecting citizens with Borked drones, drones who will stand motionless on every street corner, looking blank…who will wear the same ugly clothes, day after day after day…who will willingly and slavishly bow down to their leader, the great O. That’s it, just O. We know him as Ducksworth of Bathington.

Thousands of them, a veritable army of yellow rubber duckies, planted strategically in bathtubs all over Sunset Valley, will simultaneously deploy the moment O flicks his little rubber feather.

Until then, he just sits behind his force field, looking impossibly cute and fluffy.

Waiting.



The Borked have lined their cubes with a circuitry-like texture, which comes in two flavors:
  • Circuits, Circuits: A larger, green, three-palette texure, fully recolorable
  • Mothaboard: A smaller, blue, three-palette texture, also fully recolorable



These textures can be found in the CAST catalog in the Abstract category.

Both were built and play tested in game using patch 1.57, and will almost certainly work with future patches. ( I will be patching next week and will post results here.)

Tools Used: Delphy’s PatternPackager, TSRW, S3PE, Photoshop CS6, Sims3Pack Multi Installer, and a sonic screwdriver

Warning: Rubber duckies are ebil.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Awesome patterns! I shall definitely be using them! :D
This was too much of a coincidence; I had just started reading the description when the Doctor Who theme music loaded on youtube! I had to laugh when I read the 'and a Sonic Screwdriver' bit XD

I wish you had made these a few years ago. Then I wouldn't have had to use the vanilla circuit pattern.

There's a vanilla circuit pattern? I can't seem to find it....

Yeah. It's under... let me check real fast... Never mind. There USED to be one. Apparently, they did away with it for some reason, which sucks because it completely ruins a major aspect of about half of the lots I've uploaded. Probably made it part of Into The Future or something greedtarded like that. Yours looks better anyway.

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.

I love the circuit boards. If used sparingly it looks really nice and futuristic. I would never do whole walls with it myself, more like you did with the couch or rug in the last picture. With a single colour wallpaper behind it. Or the side of the stairs...instant spaceship. Oh, btw, love The Doctor too.

This pattern set was perfect for a style I wanted for items that my tech-nut sim uses.
