1:The pattern does not seem aesthetically pleasing and/or the pattern is blurred to the point where key details cannot be identified. This can be caused by using small images or an insufficient resolution value (300 d.p.i works best with most images). Please make sure that the textures have clear and crisp edges so that each and every detail can be seen clearly.

2:The pattern has many blurry and/or jagged edges and could be caused by using small images or an insufficient resolution value (300 d.p.i works best with most images). Please make sure that the textures have clear and crisp edges so that each and every detail can be seen clearly.

3:The edges of your pattern have a few smudges, but overall the pattern looks decent.

5:Pattern has crisp and clean edges and overall looks very well made! Great job!

1:This pattern only consists of a logo. Please make sure the pattern is an actual pattern that can be used in more than one occasion.

5:You have uploaded a multi-surface use pattern! Fantastic!

1:This pattern has many visible gaps and/or edges. Please remember that patterns should always be fully seamless, which means it should be able to tile in multiple pieces without the edges being visible.

2:This pattern has slight seams around the edges. Please remember that patterns should always be fully seamless, which means it should be able to tile in multiple pieces without the edges being visible.

5:Your pattern is fully seamless!

1:The pattern is not recolorable and the pattern is suitable to be recolorable. See this tutorial for more help on custom patterns Making TS3 Patterns

3:The pattern is not fully recolorable but the complexity of the pattern makes that a reasonable choice.

4:The pattern is fully recolorable

5:The pattern is fully recolorable with 4 channels. Great job.

1:The pattern is a bit too big, and a pattern should not consist of one single image that fills an entire tile. Large patterns and/or images that dominate one whole tile typically only look good on walls. Whenever possible, please add multiple versions of the pattern with varying tiling sizes so that the downloaders can have a variety of sizes to choose from.

3:The pattern is large, so you may want to consider adding one or two smaller versions of the pattern, but overall the pattern's tiling looks nice!

5:Excellent tiling variety!

1:Your screenshots are taken from an angle which makes it difficult to see your creation(s). As far as possible, screenshots should be taken face-on - from directly in front of the wall, or top-down for floors and ground cover.

5:Your screenshots are taken from an angle which clearly shows your creation(s).

1:All of the screenshots are either taken in Create-A-Pattern (CAP), are images of the textures, or are otherwise not taken in The Sims 3. Using non in-game screenshots as 'extras' is perfectly fine, but all required screenshots must be taken in-game.

2:Some of the screenshots are taken in Create-A-Pattern (CAP), are images of your textures, or are otherwise not taken in The Sims 3. Using non in-game screenshots as 'extras' is perfectly fine, but all required screenshots must be taken in-game.

4:All of your required screenshots are taken in-game. Thank you!

5:All your screenshots are taken in-game. Great!

1: A screenshot showing the tiling of the pattern has not been provided. All patterns must be shown at least once clearly tiling/repeating on a wall that is 4 tiles or longer (or on a large floor if the pattern does not work on a wall). Make sure there are no obstructions/furnishings in the shot; doors, windows, couches, etc.

2: A screenshot showing each pattern tiling on a 4 tile long wall has been provided, but the patterned wall is largely obscured by things like doors, windows and furniture. This makes it impossible to see how well the pattern repeats. Please consider taking a new screenshot with all obstructions removed so we can see your lovely pattern at its finest!

5: All of the patterns are shown repeating on a 4 tile long wall. Excellent!
