Chuck Norris Themed Arcade Games

This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Chuck Norris. Action hero. Martial arts master. God among men. And now the star of three new Sims 3 arcade games for your downloading pleasure.

The first of them is "Kung Fu Master." Rumor has it that the game was delayed when beta testers complained that every button makes the Kung Fu Master do a roundhouse kick. However, this is not a glitch. Second is "Missing in Action." If Chuck is fired on by an enemy sniper, hit X-X-Up-Down to headbutt the bullet back into the gun. And lastly, "Texas Ranger." WARNING: If you unlock the highest level of Chuck, stand back, or be roundhouse kicked through the screen.

(OK, obviously, the games don't really work that way.) They are recolors of the arcade games included with Late Night, so you need Late Night order for them to show up in your catalog. You will find them by name in Electronics/Misc just like the originals. The cost is 1500 Simoleons, just like the originals. All are CAStable in four channels, just like the originals. Polycount, etc -- just like the originals.

One note in the interest of full disclosure: In fact the on-screen animations are also just the same as the originals, superimposed over new background images. So yes, as you can see in the screenshots, the Freezer Bunny is hopping merrily through 'Nam. Sorry. I have had no luck finding the animations to replace them. This is disappointing, but it's apparently what EA did for the games in the Regency Arcade, so there's unfortunate precedent. (If anyone figures out where the animations are, please let me know! I would love to swap out the video.)

Anyway, hopefully any of you who have built arcades, etc, will find these useful to add some variety (and testosterone) to your lots.

Thanks to the creators of SPE and SOC, and to sweetswami77 for creating the Chuck Norris Sim used in one of the screenshots and as a model for the game graphics. Also thanks to CloudWalkerNZ for his gun poses and props.

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.

Chuck Norris doesn't play arcade games for fun. He plays arcade games to win.

I approve this download.

How did you add the title screen to the arcade I'm trying to make a few arcades and I have no clue where to find it.

It's right in the main arcade game package. So for the Freezer Bunny game, for example, if you open the package you should see it as arcadeMachineFreeze_0xb0e74fcac3ef6964. When I sort by tag in S3PE it's the eighth image down.

For each game there are three or four images in the file that look like arcade screen images. One is the title splash screen. Another is the background that shows behind the animation, and the third/fourth, which are dimmed, I think display behind the game over animation. Just replace them with your images, just like you would do for any other image, and you should be good to go.

(Note: I vaguely seem to recall that when I made these Chuck Norris games I had to do some manual renumbering of some resources. I don't think it had to do with the basic screen images, but if you replace the images with your own and it's still not working, let me know and I'll try to remember what I did.)

Brawny tried to make Chuck Norris themed toilet paper but it didn't work out because Chuck Norris doesn't take sh!t from anyone.
