HOW TO INSTALL SIMS 3 CC-HOW TO INSTALL SIMS 3 CUSTOM CONTENT-HOW TO INSTALL SIMS 3 DOWNLOADS





----------------------------------------------------------










 This is a quick and straight forward guide on how to install Sims 3 CC/ Sims 3 custom content/ Sims 3 downloads:
                
Sims 3 CC (sometimes called Sims 3 custom content or Sims 3 downloads) comes in three file formats:

    .package , .sims3pack , and .sim.

First and foremost you should always make sure that you are downloading from a reputable site (such as the sites I mention here) and that what you are downloading is compatible with your version of the game {the sites where you get the CC from usually mention this,or will tell you if you ask them.

When you download custom content, the files are likely to be archived (sometimes referred to as "zipped") and you'll need special software to unarchive (unzip or extract) them. You most likely have this unzip software already installed {if you don't, you can get it for free at winzip.com). Important: Files for The Sims 2 are not compatible with The Sims 3. You should only be using files made for The Sims 3.


So here are the instructions:

.Sims3pack:

The .sims3pack, just double-click the file and the game will take care of the rest. It does take longer than unzipping all your downloads and moving all files at once, but the good part is that automatically installs it (and ensures the files are in the right folders).

.Package:

The .package files have to be installed manually. That's if you do not have the TS3 Install Helper from Mod The Sims. With this software, you double-click the file and it will install itself automatically. If you don't have that helper program, it gets a little trickier. Find you The Sims 3 folder (see path above) and create a new folder called Mods. Your files go inside the Mods folder. There are dependencies if you use these .package files and you should brush up on the dependencies.

.Sim:

Once you've unzipped the file you need, you move the file to your SavedSims folder and open the game. Where's the SavedSims folder? Look here:

    Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\(username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
    Windows XP: C:/Documents and Settings\(username)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims3\
    Mac OS X: /Users/(username)/Documents/Electronics Arts/The Sims 3/

Oh, if you don't have a folder called SavedSims, you can just make one and put the file(s) in there. Easy!

BERRY SWEET SIMS (BERRY SIMS)


Berry Sweet Sims (Berry Sims) are defined as a Sim resembling a tasty treat or inspired by a tasty treat (but that can vary from Simmer to Simmer according to what a Berry Sim is to them). Berry Sweet Sims are normally colorful, but can even be created with EA default skins. As far as I know, the term was coined by "berrypie27". 

Since then, a site called the Berrification-Revolution has dedicated itself to making and finding berry lots and families, and having them all in one convenient place. Also,  there's a Berry Sweet Site, where Simmers who love berry Sims can gather and talk via forum.



Two quick list of Berry Sweet Sims are listed below:

SIMS 3 LUNAR LAKES VS. HIDDEN SPRINGS

Both worlds are beautiful, but if I was to say which is better I would say Lunar Lakes.  I think if you want a nice green land, then this really is a great world for you.  It sorta gives a laid back feel.  The fountain of youth is beautiful (you do have to place it upon downloading the world).
 
Lunar Lakes is more of a futuristic world.  I especially love the tree of prosperity (you'll have to place the tree here too).  I think my Sim has never read a skill book, but
is skilled to the max. The underground buildings are a great feature too.  Your Rainbow and Alien Sims will love it. It seems that it borders on the realistic and the unrealistic view of the future.


Is Hidden Springs worth the money? Yes. Only if you plan to play that world at least three times.  Besides, you can put the fountain of youth in other worlds. I also would wait for a sale. 


Is Lunar Lakes worth the money?  Yes. Only if you plan to play that world at least three times.  Besides, you can put the tree of prosperity.

 So to sum it up, I think it really is up to you what world you pick.
