There’s a reason Hi-Fructose keeps tabs on Tokyo artist Shohei (aka Hakuchi) Otomo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20).

For now, I only have two rooms ! Lanzo and Olivia have reached the max level of their careers (Culinary career in the Chef branch for Laz, and painter career in the Master of the Arts for Liv’), and I wanted to create rooms using the furnitures they have unlocked.
Use the tag #rope or my Origin ID simsontherope to find them on the galery ! :)
Find your folder and image that you want to use then click the checkmark.
Click and drag the image onto the grid. Resize to 256 x 256. You can also rotate or flip the pattern if you want to see different variations.
To preview your pattern, click the circle button with a little camera on it.
From the dropdown menu, select where to preview the pattern. I usually choose Wall 1 and the sofa body. Click Apply for the preview to show.
If you’re satisfied, give yourself a pat on the back and then click the three dots, select Export, name your new pattern and choose a category (this will be the category in which it shows up in game). Click the checkmark and you’re done!
The exported .sims3pack pattern will be in your “Documents \ Electronic Arts \ The Sims 3 \ Exports” folder. Install just like any other .sims3pack and then go check it out in game.
YAY! I hope this is understandable! Let me know if you have any questions.
