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.

Thank you so much for this fabolous tool! Up to now it was no problem to change Sims3packs to packages, but there was no way compress miscellanous files to one Sims3pack. It's a real great job you've done!

I don't much undestand, It will not work before, or after game version 1.26? I have a lot of packages, it would be cool to have them installed to dbc format.

Hello, this tool seems pretty interesting for those who have no pb with sims3pack install, but I have myself a lot of trouble with those files on my game (on a Mac computer).

I was wondering: is it possible to do the contrary ? To transform Sims3Packs into Package files AND on a Mac computer ??? It would be so useful to me !!

Can this also work with "the Sims 2" based package files?

If i understand correctly, this program can be used only with a 1.26 patched game.

I can attest to the fact that it doesn't work if your game is patched up to 1.33. It's an awesome idea, I just wish I could use it.

I have all ep's\sp's, and my game version is 1.33, so I will wait for some update to use it... But the idea is more than awesome! :D

This is a good idea, and a great alternative!

I just wish a tool could now be created so we could uninstall sims3packs/dbc/ebc files from the game/DCCache folder, without having to deal with the awful Launcher.

Only supported by patch 1.26? I guess there's a reason for that lol. Nice tool though, if I could use it. What's the point with nraas? It's not compatible?

Delphy's package extractor can make package files out of sims3pack. I wonder if the Dashboard can do the same ...?

Thanks Sakura4...really cool idea. With a bit of tweaking it would be very useful to many more users.

Volvenom: I think the creator is saying it should not be used with mods and such...just objects.

Does this mean that no Sims3Pack with Twallans mods work?
That would be a shame. A first test was unsuccessful.
Is to improve the compatibility possible?

Mods are mods, and objects are objects. NRaas mods are just an example to show, that no mods can be installed as sims3packs. It could be any mod mentioned, like NoMosaic or something.

Then I misunderstood. But I've tried a garment to convert into a Sims3Pack. The launcher does not install it. It requires a software update, so the message. But my game is up to date.

1.26 is the Pets patch, the one with the rig fix. If you're fully patched King Leo I think you have 1.33
