"Please read all information on this program and be sure you are fully informed before installing and using."

Add to Game sends the sims3pack to your launcher in the Downloads tab.


Open Custard. Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Downloads. Search to find the sims3pack you  downloaded (using Add to Game).  


Tick Open.
It will show your sims3pack info.  

I added a custom cover picture but as you see the only thing showing is the sims3pack.  Which shows that  third party CC is "glued" to the sims3pack because it appears in the Sub-Type column. When this happens the third party content can not be removed from the sims3pack.This started occurring after Late Night was released.  See Crincrits' Blog Here

* Here you can also untick any unwanted or corrupt third party cc before installing to your game.

* To install  the sims3pack go to your launcher click on your downloads tab. Find your freshly checked/cleaned sims3pack and tick the box. Tick install. Tick "Ok" on installer window.   Now your sim has been added to your game.  You should see it in the installed content tab in your launcher.



Save File Option produces Corrupt (Not a DPBF) thumbnails.

For further info on Corrupt (Not a DPBF)go here
Do not install this sims3pack.  Unticking the thumbnails is not suggested.

Apparently, using the Add to Game option is now the way to go when installing sims3packs from the exchange. Be sure to check with Custard before installing to your game.

I did not know this Suspect

Thank you for the info.


Now, I just downloaded Cleopatra using "Add to Game", and the sims3pack automatically installed. At least I think it did, I was busy looking through your studio, and when I came back to the launcher, Cleopatra was not greyed out like she would have been if she were installed, but when I ticked her, and installed, it came up as "Already installed".

I'll download something else and try to be more observant... Rolling Eyes

Okay, Blame it on my lack of attention Surprised

I downloaded Tumulas with no problems. I must have hit the install button twice on Cleo. scratch

I can't believe there is something you do not know....lol....So, did you double click on the add to game button or in the launcher for Cleo? I vaguely remember know if you double clicked somewhere it would automatically open the file.

I am also curious to know if you have the third party cc...if not can you show me a picture of how Cleo looks in game...if you kept her? Tumulas should be third party cc free...she does contain store content.
