Sims3 Custom Content Installation

About Sims

Follow below steps to install any custom content which is in Sims3Pack format to Sims 3:

  • Extract the file if it was compressed
  • Double click on the Sims3Pack file to install
  • Sims 3 Launcher will open, and the installation process will start
  • When installation is finished click the OK button
  • You are done!!!

If you have more than one file to install you may do the following:

  • Extract the files if they were compressed
  • Copy the extracted Sims3Pack files to your downloads folder. This is located at ../Documents/Electronics Arts/The Sims3/Downloads or at the custom path you installed your game*
  • Open Sims 3 Launcher and go to the Downloads section
  • Mark the downloads you wish to install by clicking on them in turn, and then click the install button. A new pop-up window will open, showing the progress of your installations and if they were successful or not
  • When installation is finished click the OK button
  • You are done!!!

You may check if the new downloads show under the Installed Content section of the Launcher.

* Notes:

  • You can keep your downloads organized by creating several folders and sub-folders in your downloads folder so you can easily trace your downloads if needed later. Unfortunately, you can do this only after the installation as the Launcher only "sees" the downloads copied to the main downloads folder (1st level).
  • You may also delete the Sims3Pack files you just installed from the downloads folder if you want. I would suggest though to back up these files in case you want to install again in the future and avoid spending your time downloading again.

About Sims Transfer

I will upload all my creations here. That means uploading +/-3.500 files... and many, many more images. It will take quite some time... I will give priority to The Sims 4 meshes and The Sims 4 downloads in general. The Sims 2 downloads will follow, then The Sims 1 (because they are just a few). Anything else will follow in whatever order I see more convenient. As for News, Screenshots and Tutorials, the priority will be to add fresh content. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

- All Sims4 and Sims1 creations are now uploaded.

- All Sims3 creations are now uploaded.
- Transfer of Sims2 creations is in progress.
