Install Sims 3 Custom Content with Framework

in Sims 3 Guides, Sims 3 Technical Stuff, Sims Videos

There’s been much confusion on an old post of mine [Five Steps to Shiny Custom Content in Sims 3] about how to install custom content, what Framework is and why the custom content they’ve downloaded isn’t/won’t show up.

To cut down on the number of questions about the same thing, I thought I’d just do a video showing you how I install my custom content from start to finish.

    @ItssMeMillie You followed the instructions on this post?

    If you did exactly the same thing I did then I have no idea why your game isn’t showing the custom content you installed.

    You might try this: http://www.sims3gamer.com/2011/02/10/sims-3-cache-files/

    The plumbob is because I have the package files associated with the s3pe Package Editor and doesn’t have anything to do with installing custom content.

    • http://Sims3Gamer.com/ Amy @ Sims 3 Gamer

       @JoshuaGeiger OK. That has everything to do w/SecuROM and nothing to do with Framework. Have you read this? http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/465841.page

         @CharmObiacoro As long as you’re adding package files you put them where you put you all of your other package files:

    I’m having difficulty finding a comprehensible tutorial on car replacement.  I’ve found some beautiful cars I would like very much to replace the default cars with and I’ve downloaded s3oc but the forum and documentation are opaque;  I’m not a programmer.
     
    Can you link me to a clear and concise tutorial on default vehicle replacement (sims3)?
