Given the recent deluge of emails in the last two days regarding requests for .zips instead of .rars:
If you read the blog, you will notice last December I suffered a series of catastrophic computer failures - my Mac currently functions on with the entire keyboard stripped off the laptop, and faceplate removed. As shocking myself from a short from the circuitry is NOT one of my favorite things, I try to avoid this computer. This was also where I did all of my conversions. My new laptop is currently trying to get up to speed so I can do conversions, however I lost all of my conversion files - as well as my Photoshop (hence no new updates from me on VS OR Equus). In light of the recent request I am CONSIDERING offering .zip extensions for those more comfortable using them - HOWEVER I ask that you exercise patience and restraint. In order to offer these I will have to REDOWNLOAD all of my own content. ;) Which will take some time to do.
For those of you saying .rar's cannot be installed into the game:
Please make sure that you are actually extracting the files from the archive. Sims 3 cannot read a .zip OR a .rar . You must extract the .sims3packs from the archive file and install THOSE into your Downloads folder.
Yes - most of my downloads are .sims3packs and must be placed in the DOWNLOADS folder, NOT the Mods/Packages folder. I will NOT be releasing any downloads as .packages seeing as I use TSRW for most of my conversions.
