This is the in-game icons extracted from The Sims 3. These icons include wishes, LTWs, favorties, skills, and careers. They are all in .png files and in 54x54 pixels. You can find other EP icons from Sims3Cri or Sims.mixei.ru for Showtime.

You might notice this download seems to be similar with Flabaliki's TS3 icons. There's a difference between my icons with his. His icons are actually the ones used only for conversation, while mine are the icons used for... the things I've mentioned before. So we actually have different icons to download. I didn't convert it to .ico, however. Sorry.

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.

This will be useful for pictures I post and it'll be easier than constantly copying and pasting from a website (in case they didn't clean up the icon very well)

I'm not asking this to be rude (in case it sounds that way), I'm genuinely curious: What is the purpose of this? Why would people need the icons?
(Since I don't make mods or post pictures like Luckk mentioned, I don't know why other people might need them)

Nothing. I only uploaded them so you don't need to extract or find them somewhere else.

You can do anything with those images. Decorating your documents, using them as icons, etc. It's not a hack or mod; it's a mere set of icons used in TS3. Personally, I like the icons that appear in the game, and I also think icons can be used to represent some topics or headings which are usually used in The Sims Wiki as well.

Okay, thanks for answering. That does make sense.

The links you provided for the other Ep icons are down or incomplete. Do you know where can I find the rest?
