Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


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.

really nice job!

Do you think it would be possible for you to make just the feathers as a hair accessory for females?

It would be quite historically accurate!

MTS does not accept clothing uploads in Sims3Pack format: "On MTS the preferred format is .package files. We do not accept uploads with .sims2packs/.sims3packs except in those areas where it is absolutely necessary (worlds and lots)."

If it is specifically WinRAR that you do not like, there are other free programs available. I've used WinRAR and WinZIP for years with no problems, though.

If you need further assistance, I'll be glad to try to help you with unpacking files.

First, download the files. If you have Windows 7, they will go into your "Downloads" file folder. Then, you must use a program like WinRAR to "extract" the files into your Sims 3 game folders. You must create a special file folder within Sims 3 to hold the package files.

There's helpful information here at MTS:

Good luck. We hope you enjoy the armor! SimmyRN

These instructions are for Windows 7 using WinRAR:

1. You must set up your game to accept custom content and .package files. This involves changing the resource.cfg file and adding a folder "Mods" with a subfolder "Packages" inside the "Mods" folder. Instructions and the necessary files are here: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?tit...Setup_and_Files.
2. Download the .package files.
3. Click on the downloaded file to open it.
4. Double click on the subfolder within the file ("Top", for example).
5. Select only the .package file(s) (Ctrl key and right click).
6. Click on the "Extract To" icon.
7. Choose the following path to extract the files to: My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages.

The clothing should then be available in CAS for you to choose. If you don't have Windows or a program similar to WinRAR, I can't help very much. Sorry! You may have to post in the MTS "Help" thread. Good luck! SimmyRN
