I have been having trouble getting my created patterns to work in my game. I can get them into the download folder just fine, and when I click on them to install it says it works, but once I get into the actual game, the patterns aren't there.

I have had the same problem as well.
Also have looked for my own patterns I uploaded to see if anyone liked and downloaded them, But have not seen a single one of them in the exchange even though it said it uploaded just fine.

Since you, like a lot of other people out there are, use the Create A Pattern tool, could I ask WHAT OPERATING SYSTEM do you have? I have downloaded the program MANY times on my laptop but since I have Windows Vista the program dowsn't work. And I would like to start creating my own stuff.
I was having the same problem, once I opened create a style I still couldn't find it, but I figured it out. I should mention that I have ONLY tried this in build mode, but I would image it would be the same way for other objects.
Paint the wall
Choose Create a Style (shortcut R) and you will see the paint palate with the arrow.
Click on the wall that you just painted.
Then you get this menu.
Find what you saved your pattern as from the drop down menu. (I saved mine as paint)
Thank you so much, this was very helpful! I have Win 7, and I just followed your tutorial until "show file". I then opened in a new window "documents > electronic arts > the Sims 3". Then I just drug my pattern from exports and dropped it onto downloads. Now I am so excited to start sharing!
