Problem with sims 3 downloads! [SOLVED]

Post by iphonesuper on Fri 07 Jun 2013, 18:16

Hello, I've recently downloaded sims 3 to my new computer and I'm used to downloading all kinds of stuff for sims, but now when I have this downloaded version of sims 3 I can't get it to work. My problem is that the downloads won't appear in the launcher, so it's impossible to install them. Neither does the tests(such as "nointro") works that came with the "frameworksetup" file I downloaded from modthesims. I know that I have extracted the "frameworksetup" right so why does this problem occur? Is it because I didn't download the EA download manager? Please help!

Welcome to the forum Smile

Will your sim3pack downloads show up if you double click on them?

Can you show us what your "Documents\Electronic Arts\Sims 3" folder looks like inside, including where you put your "Mods" folder and everything?

//EDIT

Now
I do remember that only sim3pack files should appear in the launcher
and now when I checked they did, actually. But packages don't work at
all.

The mods folder doesn't go in the downloads folder Wink it goes in the outer folder, do you can see that folder along with the saves and downloads folders. So, it'll go in "documents\electronic arts\sims3" and fully be "documents\electronic arts\sims3\mods".
