Packages arn't working for Sims 3, easily fixable, I just don't know how..?

Post by lolgeorgie on Fri 22 Jul 2011, 17:00

Hey, for some reason the packages arn't working.. All the steps were working perfectly, but when I tried to click on the 'June 2011' package, it said that the file wasn't recognized and I had to choose what to open it with. I tried to choose to open it with sims 3 launcher but that also doesn't work, it just opens up the launcher, no download.. I have a legit copy of Sims 3 by the way. I have to use a disk.

Hello,
You should simply place those package files in your my documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/mods folder. Or if you got these from G4TW, you can just unrar the file in your my documents/electronic arts/the sims 3 folder. Its all there in the installationguide.
Please let us know if you run into any more problems.

Hello,
You don't have to click on these packages, or open them with any program, just follow the installationguide and you'll find your new items ingame.
So if you have unrarred the file to the specified location, that is all you have to do and your new items should be present in buy-mode.
