Mod problems

Post by UnicornPoison on Tue 15 Jul 2014, 20:06

Hey,
I actually have a kind of a little problem.
I have download the sims 3 from games4theworld and it works correctly
But I have alot of mods and would like to use them in the game.

I know that I need to put them in downloads from other sims 3 games(who I did remove because I was done playing it but installed it again)
Only in the sims startscreen at downloads there isnt anything..

so my question was, where do i need to put those mods so I can install them in the startscreen and use them in the game? :c

(Sorry for my english)

Are you talking about mods or about custom content ( objects, hair, clothes, etc.. ) ?

Mods can't be install by the launcher ( what you call the startscreen Smile ) but you have to put them into the Mods folder which you probably have to create and have the right Resource.cfg file.

I'd suggest you download the ready-made folder on this page ( http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Files/Setup_and_Files )
Click the blue Download button on the page and unzip the file, move the Mods folder that you just unzip into your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 folder

Move your mods ( normally .packages ) into the Packages folder that is inside the Mods folder
Start your game, your mods should work Smile

Hi there,

If your Mods are indeed in .package format, try our little Games4theworld-style guide here: http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/How_to_install_.package_files.pdf
