You don't have to build families all over again. Simply zip up your TS3 user folder and then unzip them to your new computer.

Sanity is overrated.

Nitromon is a type of Pokemon encountered in the Pokemon Nitrome Version series.

There. Mystery solved.

Yup. The user folder, with your saves and mods, not the game folder.

Game Folder is often referred to as the folder where you "install" Sims 3. You already have the CD/DVDs so all you need to do is instal them on your new system. There is no point in copying these folders over and it also wouldn't work b/c when you install the game writes to the registry.

The User Folder is the one located in your document/my document folder, it contains your saves, mods, etc....
