How to convert Sims3 .package files to .Sims3Pack?

Post by Cheetarded on Sat 31 Dec 2011, 06:49

Before I updated my Sims3 to the newest version, I deleted all my CCs.
_____________________________________________________________

After I updated the newest version of Sims3......
I downloaded some CCs (hairstyles) .package and placed in Doc/EA/Sims3/Mods/Packages/ folder.
(Right right right?)
And it didn't appear in the hair section(s) when I was creating my Sims.
I tried many times but, still......

I've been Google-ing how to convert .package files to .Sims3Pack but to no avail.
So I thought probably you people here know some ways to convert it.
Do help me out!

Thank you so much!!! ^^

Hello,
As far as I can tell, there's no official and simple way to convert packages to sims3pack.
Do you have the resource.cfg file in your mods folder? If yes, maybe it is outdated. It could also be that the hairstyles you downloaded are in some way not compatible with your game version.

Well, there exists a method to convert .packages to .Sims3pack

You'll need TSR Workshop.

Once you inserted the .package file into it, click Export as .sims3pack.


Hope that this helps! Very Happy

Hello,
I've read about TSR workshop, but I also read that this method doesn't work with every .package file. Can you confirm that WhitePath?
In any case, it would be a good idea to back up your packages before trying this.

Hello,

I once tried that a while ago, but I wasn't able to convert them back to (useful) .sims3pack files.

I know, it won't work for every .packages. And if you have more packages that belong to an item, you can't convert them into 1 item.

So, it is an alternative, not a solution. Sorry.

I would suggest getting Delphys Dashboard from ModtheSims, you just place the file in a folder, run it select your MODs folder.

http://www.modthesims.info/d/387006

What it does is it goes through all your mods, tells you if it a duplicate, corrupted or if it conflicts with another mod, and if its a Sims 2 package, which are all reasons why they wont work. It will even remove and fix the problem. you can also download Sp3e (I think thats it) and you can put all your packages into one package which makes it quicker for loading the game, just dont combine hacks and mods.
