Ah, nvm, I found a way to get my patterns into my game without uploading them on the exchange.



May I ask how you achieved this?

When you export a pattern it goes into My documents/Sims 3/ uploads folder. Simply cut and paste them into the downloads folder- then you can install them into your game from the launcher without going through the exchange.
I've always done it this way, if I want to upload to the exchange I copy and paste into the downloads folder, then they are available to upload if you wish.

Hi guys!

Is there a tool for making patterns for Mac as well? I found the Delphy's pattern packaging tool for Windows only...

Thanks for your help!

A few other places where you might want to look for some great textures are:

deviantArt
Just type textures or patterns in the search box.

Free Stock Textures

Pattern Cooler

But honestly, I can usually find whatever I desire on deviantART.

Ok, I downloaded the create a pattern tool months ago... And it still does not work at all... Does it only work on desktops or can it work on laptops as well? I have a laptop but it just crashes everytime I try to use it. So I have given up trying to use it at all... Unless, someone can help me figure out what I am doing wrong with it.
Any help would be Awesome

You don't have to cut and paste, just double-click the files in your uploads folder and they will automatically install.

Dumb question, but is any of this on YouTube? "Visual" examples are a lot more helpful for me at this moment because I'm studying for my RN boards and reading anything that's not "school-related" tends not to stick in my brain at the moment! Thanks!

I am so ashamed of my patterns, they dont look seamless. I will try to follow this and I hope my patterns wont look embarrassing anymore.
