This user has the following games installed:

Sims 3
Default Converting .sims3pack to .package files
As everyone knows, it takes waaaaay too long for a .sims3pack to install, and it's much easier to just click and drag the .package files into it's respective folder.

I have a lot of .sims3pack files that I simply do not feel like taking the time and waiting for ages to install, but yet I really do want the custom content in my game. (oh, and I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I only have the base game thus far.)

Anyway, I know there are plenty of programs to do what I want, but not really any for us Mac users.

What program should I download to help me in this task? I am running on the newest version of OSX and all that jazz.
And I really don't want to be installing a lot of funky programs to convert my spectacular Mac into a Windows wannabe. (Boooo, Windows!)

Help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I don't think there's a program to allow that. Hopefully someone else comes along to correct me =)

3Viewer is written in Java, which is Mac-Friendly.
Any other "for Windows only" programs works in Mono, or most anyway.

Links and more information can be found in sticky under "TS2/TS3 tools".

Unfortunately, if you want to mesh or mod for TS3 you will need windoze....
