Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance. The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista.

Description

The new torrent is up:
https://kat.ph/complete-sims-3-store-april-2013-package-and-decrapified-sims3pack-files-t7285751.html


There is a new fix file as of 03/16/2013 to address additional errors. Download the new one by clicking here!

You can download the new building released days after the torrent, le Cinema Plumbob, by clicking here!

There is a new fix file as of 03/07/2013 to address the new items added with le Cinema Plumbob. As I have not been able to test it with the class schedule bug since I was not able to replicate it myself before I am leaving the older fix file up so people can easily revert. Download the new one by clicking here!

If you are having issues with the class schedule in University, delete your 02/21/2013 fix file and replace it with the 01/04/2013 version. If you need a copy of the file, click here. Reverting to the older file should fix any issues with the University Life class schedule, but the Hot Air Balloon will not work.

This is the COMPLETE Sims 3 Store items listing as of March 5, 2013. All files have been put into .package form by set, so no need to deal with the horrid installer!

I have also included the decrapified sims3packs. Use one or the other, NOT both! Using both will result in duplicate items!!! Using a sims3pack from this torrent and the one from the store will ALSO result in duplicates as the process to break the copyright protection changes the sims3pack just enough for it to appear as a totally different file!

If you aren't sure how to install a .package file for the Sims 3, please check out the tutorial on Mod the Sims via the link provided.
Mod the Sims Wiki - How to Install Package Files

Please don't just leech, seed for a while after you download!

Frequently Asked Questions
WARNING: Asking a question already answered below may lead to rudeness and/or public mocking.

Q: I can't open the zip files, is something wrong?
A: The reason for the compression has always been to conserve the bandwidth of people who happen to live in places where they are charged by total data, not access speed. I changed the compression algorithm in order achieve a higher level of progressions, cutting GBs from the torrent since files for this game are often extremely bloated. If you can't open these files (which use the LZMA compression algorithm), you can download 7-Zip free via this link:
7-Zip via 7-zip.org

Q: Do I need to download EVERY file?
A: If you choose to you are more than welcome to pick and choose what you want within your torrent app. If you don't know how to do that you need to look up the help info for your torrent app. All files are in the same torrent since I will not support 3 when I started out providing only the package files and added everything else by the requests of others.

Q: What happened to the annual package files?
A: I combined them to help the game run more efficiently. Instead of the 5 annual packages there are now 3 larger package files instead.

Q: Do I need to install this 'Fixes' package file?
A: If you want any of the 'Premium Content' to work, yes you do. It used to be combined with the most recent annual file but separating it makes it easier for me to check which version is included. Expect to replace the file you have anytime new 'Premium Content' is in the torrent.

Q: The directions on Mod the Sims are for mod files?
A: Every mod posted at Mod the Sims is in the form of a .package file, the exact same thing provided in this torrent. Installation is exactly the same.

Q: What if I want to use the .sims3pack files instead?
A: If you have the game installed double clicking any .sims3pack file will open the launcher, which will install it. Remember, if you use the package files the only files you need to install this way are the Worlds and Buildings.

Q: Why does the game tell me some of the files have mod scripts?
A: Starting in June 2011 EA/Maxis started putting 'Premium' items on the Sims Store. Unlike any common items on the store, these 'Premium' items add new functionality to the game, which EA/Maxis wrote in the form of a script, which just so happens to be the same thing the vast majority of modders will do. The scripts in packages found in this torrent originate from EA/Maxis only. Any package file that only has common items, not premium, will not generate a message.

Q: The game is showing me that the second and third collective package file are loading but not the first. Is the first broken?
A: No. Refer to the answer above, then check the date range for the first file and you'll have your answer.

Q: What does Decrapified mean?
A: 'Decrapified' is slang for all copy protection being removed. Every file in this torrent has been decrapified or you wouldn't see the items in game, let alone be able to install any of the protected sims3packs. In addition, it needs to be removed in order to compile a package file.

Q: Do any of these files require any Expansion or Stuff packs?
A: All Sims 3 Store items only require the Base Game to work. It is recommended that you install the most recent patch as most items only require the game be patched to a specific version. If you need a way to download patches separately from the launcher I recommend the following link: The Sims 3 Patches via Strategy Informer

Q: Are the game, expansions, and stuff packs included?
A: No. Never has, never will be. There are plenty of places to find those already.

Q: Will these files work on a Mac?
A: I'm sure they do, however I offer no support for installing or troubleshooting them on Macs. I do not use a Mac so I can not help you with that myself.

Changes in v1.3.1 package files

The compilation files have been recompiled and include every single item and lot released. If you use them the only sims3packs you will need to run are for the neighborhoods you plan to play.

Changes in v1.3 package and sims3pack files

Files have been recompressed to lower torrent's total size. Conversion will be done gradually over several months instead of all at once. The only change to 1.3 files is the compression algorithm of the .zip files

Changes in v1.2.1 package files

various items have been moved into other package files to eliminate conflicts

Changes in v1.2 package and sims3pack files

Run through more recent versions of s3rc and decrapify
Rigfix run on new files

Changes in v1.1 package files

Rigfix has been rerun since it wasn't effective when initially run.

May be a while before I'm able to do anything more, my primary computer's power supply shorted out this afternoon and I'm still trying to sift through and make sure it's the only part affected in the surge.

Does this upload include "Tiny Prodigies Early Learning Center"?

rachelstoolbox4592 • 27 Mar 2013, 23:38
Yes and no. No, there is no separate file for the Learning Center, but that's because thus far EA has only distributed it as part of Aurora Skies Gold, which is included.

Because 99% of public torrent downloaders do not seed. Many torrents find themselves seedless in months.
The way I setup this torrent you will only download new files or changed files if you seed through the month. Since starting this practice more people tend to seed.
While you may not like it, the process has proven itself the best way to keep ALL files available for anyone at anytime instead of only the last few months.

You should learn to read descriptions before you ask questions.

The collection packages are just to make it easier to find items in the game. For instance when you go to buy mode in game you can click in collections and find the item your looking for if it is a specific item like the Sunflower or Peashooter from the PVZ collection.

Hello! Thank you so much for your sharing, that's so generous!
I wanted to inform you that for the set "Live, Laugh, Love", which is in the folder "Sims 3 Building - Live, Laugh, Love", the compressed folder "Sims 3 Building - (Decrapified sims3pack) - Live, Laugh, Love Set v1.3" and under the name of "MedWedSet", you forgot to add the extension .Sims3Pack so it is invalid. Just adding it will make it work.
Thank you so much, again!

Thank you for uploading all of this, wow! Just a question though: the sims3pack files won't install when I click on them. The launcher opens but nothing else happens. Is there something that I'm doing wrong? I haven't tried the package files yet, but I've only extracted some sims3pack files that I really wanted and they won't work.
