This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Seriously, do you save this into your mod\packages on sims 3 when you have sims 3 adventure? I moved all my downloads to the adventure folder and some of them don't work or don't show up - what can I do to correct this?

I moved my mod folder to the adventure sims and most of my downloads don't show - anything that was in the plain package file don't work, just those that load up through the download manager work. Why is this? Must I move everything back to the sims 3 folder? Please help
Lab Assistant
#12 Old 9th Dec 2009 at 7:20 AM
ok, I've moved them back to the sims 3 folder and still some of them don't work, and especially none of the mods (hacks) from here, including the blur remover - Eish - seems that adventure sims is full of bugs - need some bug spray urgently - lol - thanks Gnasher316 for trying to help - have a great day

Nothing seems to work correctly in this adventure sims - now I'm wishing I never got it - any advice on how to get the old package files to work and the hacks?

That's because you need the ressource and the dll in WA's directory too. Get Delphy's framework tool; it'll install them for yall.

Does this need to be updated for patch 1.26?

22 I will give him the key to the house of David. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.

Hi, I'm looking for other items that has the updated patch 1.29. apparently my game wont work without it. I only have the sims3, ambitions, High end stuff, and outdoor stuff....So, not very many options. I really like what you've done with the bikes though.

It looks good, but it isn't a BMX... It looks more like a MTB than a BMX.
