Mod description:
Plumbob del Mar is a music mod pack that replaces existing Sims 3 menu (Build/Buy/CAS/Map screen) music with my favorite jazz/lofi/lounge/ambient/deep house tracks which I think will be perfect for those who looking for a more cozy, chilled-out simming experience. It draws some inspiration from the very first Sims game and SimCity 3000/4 in terms of musical style but I added my own twist to make it fresh.

The term 'Plumbob del Mar' itself was a play on 'Café del Mar' which is one of the multi-million selling compilation albums of chill-out music and also a bar in Ibiza famous as a global tourist destination that plays chill-out music to accompany the sunset vistas.

Some extremely long tracks have their intro part cut off whenever possible for screens where players usually spend little time (e.g. Map View) to reduce file size.

Extract the archive that contains the *.package file with the same name which corresponds to menu screen music that you want to replace into the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder.

You need to own the required EP or the Ultimate Collection edition of Sims 3 for this music override mod to work correctly as it replaces the music of the Build/Buy/CAS/Map screen on these EPs.

  • v1.0: Initial release
  • v1.1: Moved back some misplaced audio files on Buy and Build package to its rightful package file. Sorry folks! If you have downloaded this mod before you need to only download the updated version of Build and Buy package.

This mod conflicts with other mods that replace the Build/Buy/CAS/Map music.
