Where do I install a custom world?
« on: July 03, 2017, 08:16:28 PM »
I can't seem to find a specific answer to this question.  I want to install a custom world from Modthesims.  What folder do I extract the zip or rar file to that will make it show up in my game?   Thank you.

You didn't give the name of the world you're trying to install, so here's the general install How-to for custom content worlds -

Taking this custom content world for example: Simburbia - http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=588036
- This example can be used on any custom content world.

1.) Download all the zipped (.rar) files for the world.
2.) Once all files are downloaded, rename the files if necessary.
3.) Right-click on the first file and select Extract Here from the menu.
4.) The file should be in either .package or .Sims3Pack file

For .Sims3Package files, copy/paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder.

For package files copy/paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder.
