Help Installing the sims 3 store content Empty Help Installing the sims 3 store content

Hello, I will make this very straight to the point. 

I have almost all the sims 3 games already bought and installed from origin. I recently found a post on tumblr that linked the website to download all the store content. I was wondering if downloading the store content from here would even work with my already installed non torrented sims 3. I've done every step in the installation guide provided in the store content downloads, but every time I open my sims 3 it does not recognize that I have the store content placed in my game. I already have the worlds Hidden Springs and Monte Vista, in which I bought those from the sims 3 website. I also do have a working mods folder, considering that I have 3,000+ working cc and mods in my game. So I was just wondering if I am even able to download the store content to my game and if so could someone explain to me how to properly install it. The Sims Plumbob 1

Hello and welcome! cat 

Did you mean to ask how to install the .package store content? If so, a good guide can be found here:
https://games4theworld.org/Guides/How_to_install_.package_files_Guide.pdf

There's not much else to it other than putting in the .package files properly into the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages location.

But if you wanted to use .sims3packs, you need to put them under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads. And then you have to use the launcher of The Sims 3 to install them. I think the launcher can be opened with the Sims3LauncherW.exe, in the Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin location.

Worlds are always provided in .sims3packs, and you must use the launcher for them too.

Good luck! Yess, aye lieeke!

And yes, those (G4TW) store items should also work on Origin- or disc-based Sims 3 - a.k.a. legal - versions of the game. We recommend using the store fixes though, as well:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t33329-the-sims-3-store-fixes

The purpose of the store fixes is to rectify in-game interaction issues, stemming from the use of certain store items. You can find an installation guide inside the packed archive file, when you download the store fixes.
