Sims 3 Mods - Having trouble getting downloads to work.?

I followed the instructions for making the mod folder, making that little text file, putting the files into the packages folder and all that, but the mods I've downloaded still aren't working with the game.

Does anyone have a clue what I missed or a step-by-step (that I haven't followed...) that I could try? (I've checked out four different instructions, all of them were the same, and I did what they reference says: It should work! But it doesn't...)

Here's what I've done in more detail:

Created the Mods Folder in the Sims folder (is that supposed to be hiding in documents? because that's where it plopped itself when I installed the game and where a friend of mine goes with hers, and it all works just fine there).

Created the resources.cfg file with

"Priority 500

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*.package

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*.package

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*.package

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*/*.package

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*/*/.package"

inside of it.

First tried just adding the download files to the mods folder, then also tried making a packages folder and placing all of them there.

This is the process the four sources plus my friend took me through...what did I miss?Sims 3 Mods - Having trouble getting downloads to work.?

The process of installing .package mods on the sims 3 can be confusing. A lot of people have different opinions on how to do it properly. However, after looking at my resource.cfg file I notice that you're missing some information there. What you need to do is clear out what you have in it, and put this in:

Priority 501
DirectoryFiles Files/... autoupdate
Priority 1000
PackedFile Overrides/*.package
PackedFile Overrides/*/*.package
PackedFile Overrides/*/*/*.package

Sims 3 mods, and extras?

I'm brand new at the Sims. And I'm sick of the hair and I heard there are extras and stuff. But I have NO IDEA what mods are, how to install them, and how to add them to the game. Please tell me a website, how to install cool stuff and everything else.Sims 3 mods, and extras?
A "mod" is just another a game modification. It alters the game play and lets you do things you normally wouldn't be able to do like, have an adult/teen relationship and have your teen Sims "woo-hoo" and get pregnant.

You wouldn't necessarily need to install a mod if all you want is new hair. All you would need is to download hair from Sims 3 sites.

Here are a few free sites that I get/got my hair from -
- Mod the Sims1;…
- XM Sims [female]…
- XM Sims [male]…
- Peggy Zone…
- RaonJena Sims…
- Savio's Stuff
- cA Zy's Blog [female]…
- cA Zy's Blog [male]…
- The Sims Resource1 2…

These [↑] links sites are the only ones that I could think of right now. If you go to a Sims 3 site and click 'Link', you'll be able to follow the link to another site where they might have more hairs/clothes/objects/etc for you to download.

How to install the files --…
You'll need this for all the links except for The Sims Resource, those downloads go directly to the game.

I forgot to tell you that you NEED the 'resource.cfg' file so that your downloads show.
You should be able to find it on the page, I gave you for the installing help.

How Do I Completely Remove Sims 3 Mods?

A while back I had the Sims 3 on my laptop and I had added a multitude of mods into the game. I got bored quickly and uninstalled the game completely. Well now I'm interested again but when I got to play the game there are no skin options, I can no longer choose male/female, and a lot of it's functionality is gone. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works. I've realized though that when I first install and go to play it's normal but as soon as I update it the problems occur again. Any solutions?How Do I Completely Remove Sims 3 Mods?

Someone PLEASE HELPPPHow do you get The Sims 3 mods/Package Files to work on Windows 7?
    Hey! I'm a Windows 7 Ultimate user, I'll help you with that.

    In order to get the game running with the new MODS directory, make sure you create the Mods folder in the following path:

    Windows Vista/7: "C:\Users\%26lt;Account Name%26gt;\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\"

    Windows XP/2K: "C:\Documents and Settings\%26lt;Account Name%26gt;\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\"

    Create a "Resource.cfg" file using notepad. Use the following details in that file:

    Priority 500

    PackedFile DCCache/*.dbc

    PackedFile Packages/*.package

    PackedFile Packages/*/*.package

    PackedFile Packages/*/*/*.package

    PackedFile Packages/*/*/*/*.package

    PackedFile Packages/*/*/*/*/*.package

    PackedFile Packages/*/*/*/*/*/*.package

    Once you do that, create TWO folders inside the new "Mods" folder, "DCCache", and "Packages". And voila! Your game now has the official Mods directory set! Just move over your mods from the original path into the new "Package" directory, delete the old Mods folder and "Resource.cfg" Framework.

    How do you download mods for Sims 3?

    I've noticed that on Mod The Sims 2/3 there's a lot of really good mods, and I tried to download one. Specifically, I want to download the teen pregnancy mod. I tried it, but I just can't figure out how to download it, because as far as I can tell it's not just clicking a button that says 'download' waiting and then opening it.
