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.

That would be a shame. A first test was unsuccessful.
Is to improve the compatibility possible?


Can not be installed because the Game Launcher has its own detection mechanism, this can not be avoided.

Good job, it's not over i hope

I had long awaited a mod like this one, but...

I'm in v 1.33, in french version, and with a lot of Nraas mods, essentials for me (and my game).

I sincerely hope you will not stop you there way.

And sorry for my translation

I also have version 1.31 and when I downloaded the mod, it let me change and install a few package files but now when I go to install the more recent ones I did, it says I have to update my game.
I too don't understand what you've said above.

Thanks!

Version of the file is to specify that it can be what version of Game Launcher installed.

Can be installed: TSR Workshop making or official unpack package.
Other package does not guarantee.

I'm currently have the update 1.34. I tried this with 6 patterns of the same creator. Funny it is, got "installed" or so it said (Actually it said that the package was already installed XD) But then I checked and just one pattern got through, the main sim3package was in objects and the lonely one in patterns ...thanks for your creation, but PLEASE UPDATE! T_T

I think the files you packed are the same to one another, in term of object id, so the launcher could only install one of them. If you want to packaged only 1.34 game launcher installed, Use tool v1.3.1.33 custom version function, you can define any version of the game you want.
1.34 settings:
ArchiveVersion: 1.5
CodeVersion: 0.0.0.265
MinReqVersion: 1.5.0.015000

I AGREE WITH HER. I really need a mac sims3pack to package software, my launcher doesn't work anymore and alllllll those downloads are going to waste

Do you know of any software that does this? Google is pretty much useless, everything is irrelevant.

Look up a program on here called CCmagic. You can delete/disable unwanted content and you can also compress it into smaller packs. Made my game run a lot quicker.

Not to be a jerk but I can't understand all of this broken english. This program makes .package files into .sims3packs correct? What are the known issues and is there a userguide?

Tools themselves do not file any modifications, just packaged Launcher can identify the format. The file format can refer to the TSR Wrokshop (or official) created.

* You can decompile Game Launcher View installed authentication.

Does anyone know if this works with Game Version 1.34? I'd like to gather all my hairs into one sims3pack since TSRMerlin can definitely install them, but I'm fully patched. Will it still work or should I wait until it's updated?

"I think the files you packed are the same to one another, in term of object id, so the launcher could only install one of them"
It is possible that the same 6 patterns work as package, but not as a Sim3pack?
I mean, when they were in the package folder the all 6 worked...I don't get it

Ah, this is very useful if you want to avoid duplicate files, I reckon! The only thing about the Launcher I really like is how it keeps track of duplicate and individual files so maybe I can finally get rid of some weird hair that somehow ended up in my game. Thank you!

Totally confused
I don't mean to be a jerk either, but it isn't working and I can't understand a good bit of the instructions, and worse, the comprehensive screenshots with the broken English. I GUESS it is because I am patched to 1.34, I don't see any clear answer on the patch issue. But thank you for creating it. Maybe someone who is using it successfully could shed some light.
