I haven't posted a journal entry here in nearly a year! Thank you to everyone that has stopped by to my little corner of DA. I'll be posting a couple of new projects very soon! In the meantime, I would like to offer the following list of Sims utilities.
Create A World (CAW) www.thesims3.com/game/tools/wo… For custom world/neighborhood creation and editing. It is PC only, that's the only drawback to it.
The best manual for using this program was not made by EA. It was made in a series of videos by Flabaliki of the Sims Supply. www.youtube.com/playlist?list=… He explains things very clearly!
Create A Pattern (CAP) www.thesims3.com/game/tools/pa… is for creating your own patterns for Sims 3.
S3S Browser by Crinrict and her mister is a utility to keep track of all items purchased from Sims 3 store. You will find it especially useful when doing a fresh install if you have compilation sets. sims3.crinrict.com/en/s3s-brow…
SimsReadmeGenerator tracks and records what EPs, SPs, and Store Content are use in Sims3Pack files. This is useful for those that like to post a content list with their creation.
Delphy's CUSTARD Sims3Pack Cleaner - modthesims.info/d/390235 is a tool to view the innard of Sims3Pack files. It can identify corrupted content but worlds are always popping up with false warnings.
Postal - Sims 3 Package Editor and API v0.10 - postal-sims-3-package-editor-a… For viewing and editing DBPF2 files.
I use this mostly to view the contents of package files, but for those that know how to edit hex code, etc. it will be very useful to you.
s3pe is a Sims3 Package Editor based on the s3pi library. www.den.simlogical.com/denforu…
You can do all kinds of package editing with this one including poking in most World files to allow editing in CAW (Create-A-World).
Save Cleaner V2.2 www.den.simlogical.com/denforu…
This utility cleans up extra copies of images and data that bloat save files.
