Default Need Help Installing Custom Sims into Sims 3
I need help!! I've downloaded a few of the sims from the site and want to install them into the game. How do I do it? I'm a little confused as to which files need to be installed and which ones will be picked up by the game automatically.
Coffee, anyone?

I have read all the guides but it's still not working. The files are package files but sim files and so the programs aren't working for them and they're not showing up in the game.

if they're .sims3 ones (ie, the ones with the plumbob logo), you just double click them and the launcher will open and install them. you don't need any external programs or to move them anywhere.
