Patterns, coming very soon!!

I have been working hard to figure out which way is best for me to create patterns to share! I have been working with both Create A Pattern and Photoshop and TSRW. So far I have been able to create patterns using both methods. I have run into a slight problem with TSRW and PS (getting the alpha recolor to show up in the game) but once I figure that out.....I will be creating lots of patterns, using both methods. I want to make as many cast-able patterns as I can, I like variety in my game.....but there may also be some that I can't cast, but still want to use in the game. :) Check back soon! If things go as planned, I will have a few up before the end of the week!!

I have recently made a tutorial on how to create cast-able patterns in Create a Pattern. If interested, you can find it at Living Sims Forum, where I spend most of my free time ;) Link Below.

First Sims 3 Pattern!!

Just made my first Sims 3 Pattern!!!! I still have lots to learn, but it's fun!! Here's a peek, tried it on several things to see how it would look......found the texture in my old myspace background website folder hidden on my desktop. Not bad for less than 5 minutes worth of creating in photoshop and CAP!




Texture Site........Sims 3 Patterns

I am getting the photoshop bug back!! I am thinking about taking some of my old textures and making patterns for Sims 3. Would there be any interest? Or should I just start new and fresh? I would be willing to take requests, leave me a note here and I will see what I can do!!

Click on the link below to go to my texture site......don't mind the fact that I haven't updated in a while....I plan to reconstruct the site over the next month or so and hopefully, if all goes as planned, I will be adding lots of new textures!!

I also have textures from my old myspace background website I may consider using!! Check it out here:

Tried building my real life home in Sims 3

Sims 3 build of my real life home.....this is the Master Bedroom.



Created a Blog Today

Yeah, um, so I decided to create a blog today to post my Sims stuff on. I am so ready for spring, tired of winter so I chose to use something colorful and springy for a background. I think it's very cute! You can find some great templates from the link up there!

I've thought about setting one of these up for a while now and just decided to do it!

So.....why a blog.....well I plan to share house/challenge screen shots, maybe some Sims stories and possibly some CC for Sims 3. I have tons of textures on my website and I am considering turning some of my favorites into patterns for Sims 3. Maybe if they turn out, I can share them!?
