This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
While scrolling through my tumblr, I stumbled across a reply one of the people I follow had answered asking whether there were any recolors of the Dragon Valley wisteria. The answer was no: only for TS2 and possibly TS4 and then some custom wisteria that crowkeeperthesimmer had made. None of the actual DV plant itself. I figured, hey, why not take on another project so I can procrastinate on the things I should be doing. And here we are!

These are new, base game compatible clones of the wisteria that came with Dragon Valley. They will not overwrite or conflict with the store version, nor is the store version required.

Things to Know:
  • Found in Decor > Plants
  • Costs ยง300 (same as the originals)
  • Wisteria02-05 are slaved to Wisteria01. You must have Wisteria01 in your game so that the rest have textures as they are linked to keep the package sizes down. This is clearly notated in the file names as well (master vs slave) so that you don't accidentally delete the one with the IMG files.
  • Each wisteria package comes in 2 presets: 1 has flowers, 1 does not.
  • Can be moved up and down the wall (same as the originals)
  • Visible in World Builder, in case you want to use them in CAW off lot

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.
