Here are top-quark “signal” samples generated by requests for Snowmass 2012-2013. Samples are generated using ANL ATLAS Tier3 computer farm based on Arcond/Condor. Details about the Delphes samples for Snowmass are given in this wiki.
One can view and browser directories with all simulated samples using the ANL Monte Carlo repository. Here is a detailed description:
Warning: most of the models are at the LO level (HERWIG/Pythia8) or with some NLO corrections (Madgraph). You should apply a k-factor to get a correct normalization (can be a phase-space dependent).
Background samples are discussed in Background Samples Twiki.
Truth MC record was removed from the Delphes files to reduce file size. Below you can find a repository with truth MC information: signal, signal+pileup (<mu>=50) and signal+pileup(<mu>=140). Pileup particles are included.

You can add a new deatures to Delphes using this test HEPMC record. Download a HEPMC file with ttbar (>650 GeV, 14 TeV) for Delphes. Get it from here LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc.gz. Test Delphes as:
gunzip LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc.gz DelphesHepMC examples/delphes_card_ATLAS.tcl LHC_ttbar650.root LHC_signal_ttbar650.hepmc
Here are the samples for ATLAS-like fast simulation using Delphes 3.03 without pileup removal.
Other samples with and without pileup (keeping all final state particles) are discussed here
The SVN link to the white paper is here. You may need to get the Assembla account and contact me to allow the access.
