This program is designed so you can create playlists for your sims 3 game.

Instead of Having to copy all your mp3 files that you want into your "Custom Music" folder in your sims directory, this program does it for you. Once u create a few playlists you can easily choose between what playlist you want to play the game with and all the files will be copied in to your sims 3 game.

For an questions or comments please feel free to e-mail me Nick Banson at [email protected]

Operating Systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista or higher

The Program requires: Visual Basic 6 run-time files.

If you get a runtime error download the Visual basic 6 files: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...&displaylang=en

Notice: Before you delete the playlist that comes with the program make sure you create a new one. and update it as your current playlist.. If you dont you will get an error when you start the program!

**Update 1.3**

Sorry I forgot one last update in 1.2. If you get the run time error at the start this update will fix it.

**Update 1.2**
This update fixed the error user get when they have the game installed in a different path other than the default path maxis has the game installed in.

Also a new window was created in 1.2 allowing users to change the path.

Lastly if you are getting a run-time error then this update installs files needed for the program to run successful.

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.
