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.

Hey, this program would truly rock if it was open source, so some one could update it to support the latest update in Sims 3. I can't get curtain capes and such to package with TSR Workshop, but I can with this, except, when I go to install, I get the error to update to the latest version or something like that within my launcher.

You can customize the desired version number, import a higher version of sims3pack file version information to set it.

I don't quite understand the tutorial. If someone is willing to help me i would be thankfull.
Well i'm trying to turn a "set", i guess you can call that, and has around 8 package files. How do i turn these files into a sims3pack? All i managed to do was turning each package file into a sim3pack each time, i'm pretty sure there is a easy way to it, heh.
Well, thanks in advance!

From what I understand, here's how it works:
1. Find a newer sims3pack that you know is compatible with the launcher. You can either find one here on Modthesims or any website that provides downloads.

2. Open the Generate Tool and go to "Set Sims3Pack File Version". Click "Import from Sims3Pack", and browse to where you downloaded a working sims3pack. Make sure to click "Apply".

3. Enter the desired file name and description, then move to the empty box below the columns "Guild", "Type", ect. Right click the box and click "Add". Add the packages that you want. If you're adding multiple packages, be sure to click the Multi Option before adding (Package to Sims 3 Pack Multi)

4. If you want a customized png image, make sure to select "Add Png Icon", and click on "Png Image" to add your custom file.

5. Click "Generate Sims3Pack" and you're done!

If I'm missing anything, feel free to add on. I just did a quick runthrough myself.

This is useless. It's because this program is outdated or just because simply there is no way to convert packages to sims3packs? I tried it million times and it always giving me an error saying that my game is not up to date or something like that. Out of 20 converts only one worked.

This is outdated, you have to update it yourself. The easiest way being the following: Find a Sims3Pack you know is working. Open the Generate Tool and go to "Set Sims3Pack File Version". Click "Import from Sims3Pack", and browse to where you downloaded a working sims3pack. Make sure to click "Apply". It should now be up to date. :]

I can understand problems with language and translations - but poor cooding/crafting and little or no user interface is rediculas! No updates for many years. Got this program to work once a long time ago - just tried to use it and kept scratching my head. Couldn't get anything to work. Something about you have to manually enter the file to work with? Who knows. The had a great program that did these functions and many more for the Sims 2 - but we all know where that ended... Yep, ended! !st Maxis and EA need to get off their collective rears and get CAW working correctly with the "Origin" craped version of Sims 3, 2nd - a sims3pack to Package file AND a Package to Sims3pack editor is needed that works without guesswork - not one way with this utility and the other for anther utility and only under conditions. 3rd - Most Important right now - A utility to take the HDF database from within your Played Game and be able to incorporate it into an already made WORLD sims3pack... in other words... take the lots and objects placed within your played game of a world and put all that back into the sims3pack it came from - most of use can no longer use EIG in CAW but can export a world with no lots placed in them - we use the installed blank world, add lots and objects then continue playing - need a way to intigrate the played game (world) back into the sims3pack it came from - if posible. Sorry for the rant... EA, Maxis and the support for creation blows and reached my daily limit.
