For a staging area do you mean My Documents or so, out of the Program Files folder? If so,it could hold much more content! I'm afraid I have less than 1 gb free in my disk C.

Hello!
It won´t install.
I have .net 2.0. I dl the rar file, extract it to own folder, run the exe file, follow instructions to step three and....nothing.
Or....am I not supposed to see the program?? If so, how can I delete it if it´s not working/what I want?

aneleh: As I said, there is no install. You just download, extract, and run. Once step 3 runs you will see .package files in the destination folder.

If you get a specific error, please post that, but "nothing" is not an error message.

Hooray, thank you for this!!! I've just tried it out and it's very fast and easy - no more need for the Sims 3 Launcher that takes forever to install things. The extracted package file is given a name of random numbers and letters, which I just change to a meaningful name so that I know what each package is. I'd been using a program called 3Viewer for this purpose, but yours is much quicker and easier. THANKS so much.

Thank you so much! I've been waiting for something like this. Will be able to spend more time in the game than actually installing things for it now! :D

Awesome! :D
But it should be even better with something similar to Qxpress, it made everything sooo easy..

AAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! =]]=]]=]]=]]=]]=]]
You really made my day. I hate that stupid launcher all the time. It runs so damn slowly and take a lot of disk space of my C drives whenever it installs anything (not to mention the fact that I can't take my free space back when I uninstall something)

Speedy and Easy as always

EDIT: Anyone know how I could pin this to my SuperTaskbar in win 7? Even using a shortcut doesn't work

thanx again, Delphy =)

I can't figure out the "rename file on save" :s if I click, I see no "rename option" showing up, and the file is extracted but sort of corrupted (actually, a non recognized file). If I just extract without trying to rename, the file is a package (and that's good ^.^).
How does it work, please ?

Sand_Ce, I just uploaded a version that removed that - I coded that a while ago and never could get it working right.

Anyone who tries it in Vista 64, would you let us know how it works for you?

Oh god I love you! (don't tell HP ) Those sims3packs have been way beyond annoying

#22 Old 15th Aug 2009 at 2:38 PM
Thank you!!! That's so cool, the launcher was driving me nuts... perhaps a stupid question, but does it any good to take the existing SIM3-Packs out of the Dl-File and install it with your tool? Would that make anything better?

#23 Old 15th Aug 2009 at 2:39 PM
Thank you!
Though I admit I would really like to have files keep the name of the 3pack. Too few creators give an internal name to the package, and I have got umpteens anonymously numbered packages.

nice idea, but seems you have to unzip/rar them first...which if I'm already doing that, I might as well install them all manually.... or am I missing something?
*still misses the old filemaid*

I'm still using XP by choice. No mention of Windows XP. Do you think it will work if I install .net 2.0? I have a ton of Net Frameworks but don't think I have 2.0.
