Installing store content

Post by bamboogarden on Fri 22 Aug 2014, 18:46

I've taken a long break from playing the Sims 3 and have forgotten the steps when installing the store content. I remember downloading from the moreawesomethanyou site and that you had to take extra steps in order to make them work and install them.

Is this the same for the store downloads that's provided on games4theworlddownloads.org or can I just install them via the Sims 3 launcher like normal?

Thanks!

Hello,


Most of the available store content is in .sims3pack file format. You need to install these files with the launcher then. In some cases though, you will get an error when trying to install the items with the launcher. This happens especially with items downloaded from the official "EA exchange", over at EA's forum.

See these topic here too:

These are basically two ways to get around any error messages in the launcher, when trying to install .sims3packs. Note that the items from the "games4theworlddownloads"-site will install just fine; you won't be getting any launcher errors with them.
