These were designed for the Builder's Boulevard resources with the Japanese themed neighborhood in mind. These are free to use. However, do not redistribute claiming as your own, nor upload to pay sites. You may include with your lots or Sims, however, please give credit/link back in either description, story or in your blog sections and please notify me of usage.

Dragon w/Cherry Blossoms


This pattern comes in 2 sizes. It features a unique specular mapping, so only certain parts should be shiny. (tested in game, seems super shiny, but good for satin fabrics) I do not know the meaning of the Kanji, however a moderator looked it up to find out it means "cherry blossom" ;D

Japanese Dragon Script


This pattern is designed for the Builder's Boulevard resources for the Japanese theme. There are 2 sizes with various 'dirt' layers. Layer 3 or 4 would be dirt layer. Default specular. If there's only 2 layers, it's the clean version with only two recolorable channels. 8 patterns total for this set. The screenshots with the stacks of blocks are illustrating the variances. Dirt1 and 2 are very slight, DoubleDirt is very drastic, it has both Dirt1 and 2. The effects you can achieve can alter the entire color of the pattern as an accent or add a bit of grunginess or even blood (without the splatter, more just excess red)

More to come!

Thank you to those wonderful creators who made it a lot easier than drawing all of that by hand myself. ;D Considering I hate drawing scales and my flowers suxor. I'd need a reference any way.

I looked up your character for you... it means "cherry blossom". You can edit your text with that info if you like


So thanks to the moderator who researched that for me. And that's cool since I used it with Cherry Blossoms in the pattern. I must've known on a subconscious level due to all the anime I've subjected myself to.

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.
