Post by edwardnygma on Mon 29 May 2017, 13:09

Hey. I just want to know how to download .package files in sim 3? I want to try to download skins for my sims bc that comes up with a .package file. Btw my game is up to date and the expansion packs i downloaded are from here. All i want to know is how to make this type of file to work in my game. I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA ON HOW TO DOWNLOAD IT.
Please, help me?

Hello,


You just download the file as you would download any other file. Installing them is rather simple, we have a guide on that here.

Thanks for this guide. I'll keep i updated. But what if my game started and acting weird? Do i have to uninstall my sims and reinstall it again? I dont have backup. So. I might lose everything.

Hello,


You would only have to reinstall in the most extreme circumstances. If there's a problem with mods or CC, a clean folder in Documents usually suffices.

Hi, once you put a .package file in the packages folder, it's in your game you don't need to open the launcher to do anything. Just start the game and it should show up. Hope this helps.

Hi. I put the .package file that i downloaded in the Packages folder and when i started my game, I looked for the .package files that ive downloaded in the game, but they are not there. There not in the game. Like for example this "skin.package" file is in the Packages folder but not in the game's CAS.

Sometimes you have to scroll down in the skin tone options in Create a Sim.

Did you make sure you put the mods folder in the Sims 3 Documents folder and not in the Programs folder?

Yes i did. I put them in the right folder. Then when I couldn't find "skin.package", ive tried putting another .package files in the Packages folder like the beards, and sliders, and hairs that has a .package file types. Then i relaunch the game and look for them in the CAS. and they're still not there and idk what i did wrong.

I hear that the files such as the ones you describe are often not working correctly, have you tried different ones from other creators?

Then I think it's those particular files, or at the very least one of them. Try to add them one by one to find out when exactly the problem starts occurring, and you'll find the culprit.
