Awesome Facts about my Awesome Project!

Wait, What is this?


So for a while now I'm been working on this thing called, "The Trait Project". I looked at the base game (and generations 'cause I couldn't resist the spiral stairs, lol) and picked out 20 traits and divided it into 4 parts. This is part 1.

How did you come up with this awesome idea?!

One day, I was sitting on the couch watching TV with my family, and this magically popped into my head (No not really I was thinking about cool sets I could do while watching a boring show). I jumped out of my chair and screamed, "I GOT IT!" and ran to my computer to write a note where I keep my ideas cause I didn't want to forget this! When I went back my family was staring at me...

Okay... and tell me alittle bit about these trait homes you have...


Most of them are about $30,000-70,000 (furnished) and can fit 1-2 people. They focus on the trait (obviously). For example, for Reading I did a small, cozy cabin with a reading room with lots of bookshelves. For Artistic I made a modern home with cool architecture and easels. All homes require Generations (2 homes require World Adventures and Ambitions on top of Generations) and patch 8.0.152.01

The descriptions, pictures and files of each house are in the comments. No CC is used.

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3 World Adventures Ambitions Generations
Built with Game Version: 8.0.152
Warning! There are no files attached to this upload. If this is a "group project" or multi-part upload please check the comments for more files.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

@Maryse, you can use Delphy's Multi-pack installer and plop the file into the Library. Works great for me!

You can never have too much yarn, fabric, or books.
