What is this?

This is the Starlight file with the FIXED Resources imported, for people who don't want to mess with their files in S3PE.

What has been done?

Please read this download thread [In Testing]Resources for Starlight's various Fixes for the stuff that has been done.


Heed that backup instructions in Game Help:World Routing Lagswiki, really! You've been warned!

How to install?

How to remove or restore the file before updating?
  • Go to the path above
  • Delete the *.world file. Or if you want to reuse it after patching, rename it with a ".fixed" extension, so the filename becomes "Starlight"
  • Rename the "*.orig" copy by removing the .orig extension (or from whatever you have renamed it to).
  • Delete caches before starting game. Game Help:Sims 3 Delete Cache Fileswiki


As always, feedback is welcomed.
Please report any other areas that you get stuck Sims at that I might have missed. If I may have been overzealous in the corrections or did some things wrongly.

Notes & Changelog:

As and when I get reports of any issues, or new spots, or patch changes (if any).
  • Made while on Patch 1.31-1.36. Would most likely be compatible with any patches in the future as well, as EA has never ever modified a .world file in the updates.
  • The fixes contain 26 modified resources, imported from the other download thread.
  • Would conflict with any other download that make changes to the .world file that changed the above named resources.

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.

Hi, I'm having some issues extracting this file; I get a CRC/corrupt file error for part 1 when I try to use Extract Here. I've tried MTS' instructions for redownloading CRC files, but none have had any effect. Then I tried to download the resources so I could apply them manually instead, but I can't open that file either (I get an error message for it being invalid?). I don't know if you're still active, but if you - or perhaps anybody else who might have the original files?? - could help me, I'd really appreciate it.
