This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Ashillion has repacked the rocks to make them viewable from map view. Apparently there was an issue with that, which he fixed. You can download his version (all rocks together) on Mediafire here ---> New Rocks (This is all three of the original rocks listings)

I'm sure I'm not the only one disappointed by the lack of a decent rock selection for use when landscaping gardens and such. Now these rocks, I've extracted from the game were for use as neighborhood/world decoration. These are rather extremely large. However, for those of you who are adept with terrain sculpting tools and the moveObject cheat, these rocks may come in pretty useful.

Now one weird thing I haven't really played around with. When first testing these rocks out, I plopped one down right smack in the middle of a house, which it completely enveloped. And I clicked for my sim to interact with something inside the rock, and he walked right through the rock! There may be some use to that, so I left it. I am unsure if this may occur in other instances. I did try walking through one on a community lot which was vacant before I slapped the rocks down, and nothing inside the rocks to click on. But didn't path through or anything. Haven't really tested it much, so feedback is appreciated.

This set has 4 Mountain rocks, the "small" ones are slightly bigger than a sim, and one really tall one. There's a giant Petroglyph rock, which has some cavesim scrawl on both sides. And finally, there's the Waterfall set, one placement, with many rocks. One issue with it. It floats. I think it's meant to be underwater, there's even a waterline in the texture if you look closely. It's also HUGE. So if you plan to make some really, really really big waterfalls, there you go.

I priced all rocks as 25 simoleons. Which is in between the prices of everything else in the rock section. So the whole set will be easy to discern. The titles seem to be numerical with lots of **** despite the fact I renamed everything. A few of them came out right, and I did the same thing with both and even re-extracted it, etc. I made sure everything was set to convert English to all languages, so I give up.

This is the final installment of really big rocks: Ginormous Rocks Mountain Edition and Ginormous Rocks Granite Edition

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.
