To Install your house, double clicking should be enough, if not, put it in your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads, folder, then excute the launcher, now how to place, you can follow this tutorial made by me http://kikozone.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-to-install-install-downloaded-lot.html
@kiko94:I don't think this is the first time we've disagreed about how to download houses from the Swap Shop. Why doesn't my method work for you?
Hi dark. The Swap Shop isn't downloadable, the content inside it is.
Well, that's just odd. I wonder why mine is so much easier to handle. Seriously, I click the download link, click to install, and it's there waiting for me in the game.
If it's a Sim, I have to hunt it down in CAS because it does NOT show up in game although it is plainly there in my downloads in the launcher and in my files.
