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.

So with this we could effectively turn hair packages into sims3packs?
Would it be advisable to change each package file or can you combine them all into one sims3pack file? I guess this will reduce game loading times.

Will this tool be updated to patch level 1.36?

If you have 1.36, download version 1.4. Right-click on the empty box that says GUID at the top and add whatever packages you want to convert. If you're doing more than one, make sure you check the bubble that says multi.

When you have all the packages you want, hit generate and save it wherever you want. They install just fine through the launcher.

Hope this helps.

Great tool!

Can you please make a version that converts "pattern" type packages too?
If I use your current version, it coverts the pattern into an object. After installing, launcher will show two installed files: an object and a pattern. The pattern can be uninstalled but the object not. Launcher will prompt: object not found.

Live your dream.

noob question, after creating and installing the new sim3pack, I moved the prior package file outside of the game folder. When I looked for it, it wasn't in game, but the EA launcher says it was installed.....? so confused on how to use this program

I tried hair packages, and It didn't work for me. :/
The launcher won't install any of the hairs i've turned into sims3packs.
However, It works fine and Installs Objects in general perfectly.

Does this work with UL 1.50? There are a lot of files I'd love to convert and this would be a god send.

Well, even with a strong Mac ( a good Graphic card and enough of Ram ), too many packages slow down a lot the game play ... So this idea of transforming .packages to .pack is an excellent thing !

I'm curious how dangerous it might be to try using this when the version only goes up to 1.36 and the game is well past that?
