So i thought this would be the best first post to kick start my account here on MTS!

A good while back i uploaded a video on my youtube channel called “How To Install Mods/CC For The Sims 3″ video and thought i should post my Empty but Organized mods folder for TS3.

Which lemme tell ya....this comes in handy if ya don't wanna organize your own mods folder, honestly i wish i had this back when i first started downloading mods but alas i didn't but you can! So here! Take it! I don't need it! (just kidding)

I put some pictures of what the inside of the folder looks like which i should have done in the first place but i wasn't really sure if this was going to work so....

Anywho!

The mods folder is empty due to respect for CC & Mod Creators but that doesn’t mean ya can’t fill it with your own junk!

It has mostly all the folders within it to keep your mods and CC neat and tidy! So just download it and throw some mods into it!

Here Is The Tumblr Download: https://lordressdragoonbear.tumblr....zed-mods-folder

Thank y'all for downloading! (。・∀・)ノ゙

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

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
Mods.rar

Size: 3.6 KB · Downloads: 1,294 · 24th Sep 2021
3.6 KB 1,294 24th Sep 2021
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.

One day I seen at TV channel a woman who said her profession is "space organiser". Literally those person came to their home and stacked clothes properly to fill less space and put all things in cells and boxes. And they paid her!
I prefer to say: Thank you, but I can organise my folder myself. But after I seen those tv show, I believe there are other persons demanding in someone to sort off and place their stuff. I just don't need this, but guess someone does. Anyways thanks.
Regards Vic ^_^

What I do is I have separate folders for tops, bottoms, full body outfits, and shoes so I know where everything specifically is instead of just a "clothing" folder, just a suggestion!

So I don't actually need this download, but it's really nice to know someone has their mods folder organized a lot like mine is... very similar accept much of the CAS stuff, particularly clothing and accessories, I use CCmagic to consolidate and slow down load time. Otherwise my game would take 45 minutes to load.

I usually merge my cc but hey a little organization never hurt!

I'd like to point out you actually made a mistake. As you can see by looking at the pics, you have a folder called NRASS. It's an easy mistake to make but the word ass isn't actually in it. It's NRaas, as evidenced by their site, https://www.nraas.net/community/home

I'm no grammar nazi, but the make important mods needed to help the game function properly and if I had a group like theirs I'd hate someone to refer to it with ass or such in its name.

I have been using NRaas mods since 2010 or so, and I frequently make posts or replies about them in various forums around the webs, and I still always have to spell it out in my mind (as if I am sounding out the letters verbally) to make sure I am typing it correctly each and every time.

I didn't know I needed this until you posted this download. Thank you; I'll make good use of it.
