Huh, pretty cool. Dunno about the rest of the game but you sure "remastered" the loading screen pretty well.

I don't have the game installed right now but it looks nice from here. I guess the sims in silhouette are from 4?
Also, it's don't*, if it was your doing.

Feel free to add me on The Sims 3 and to send me in-game gifts. ^^
You can also find me on The Sims Forums, but inactive.

A huge thanks to you for this awesome mod!
I'm super curious how you made the loading screen.
Did you extract the original and replaced the images?
Did you find a way to add new animations on the loadings screen?

Hey! I really like this new loading screen but it doesn't work for me fully. Everything got replaced but the 'Sims 3 Into The Future' logo... I took every other file of my mods folder out and it still appears to me as 'Sims 3 Into The Future' .. may it be that the mod doesn't work for games in other languages? My game is in German. I could be wrong but I don't know what else might cause this.

Fun fact: earlier this year EA planed a 64bit update for Sims 3 since Apple drops 32bit support for their latest OS and as such, this mod would fit perfectly since the text is "The Sims 3 Remastered". However with the COVID-19 situation going on this have been delayed until further notice.

It may help you to completely delete the contents of the directory C:\Users\%Username%\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\DCBackup (the package cache directory contains the package cache files installed in the launcher ) ,C:\Users\%Username%\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Thumbnails (Cache directory for viewing icons installed in the file launcher), files CASPartCache.package,compositorCache.package,scriptCache.package,simCompositorCache.package,socialCache.package,userPresets.package. ((Respectively, cache files of installed packages, modifications, etc.)
