While studying DBPF packages I developed this application under C# using Visual Studio.

I made it a time ago and it was available on my blog, and I was going to upload it to MTS but did not had much time to post it all again. Anyway, here it is.

It's a drag&drop Sims3Pack extractor.

Similar with Delphy's Multi Installer;
They share the same purpose, the difference is that mine can be ran through batch scripts or by simply dragging the Sim3Packs you want to the program file.

I created a GUI where you can change the default settings, such as:
  • Set a custom Extraction Directory;
  • Add a handler when you right-click with any Sims3Pack to extract them;
  • Integrate the program to Pescado's s3rc;
    • Attempt to fix or/and decrapify the generated package;

- .NET Framework v2.0.50727 | Or grab the latest (v4.0.30319) here (Recommended)


Extract the executable with WinRar or 7Zip
Run the executable to change the default settings.
Simply drag&drop Sims3Packs into the program file.

Or, if you added a handler to the Sims3Pack extension, right-click the Sims3Packs and click "Extract with S3CE".

CommandLine Usage
> s3ce "file1.Sims3Pack" "file2.Sims3Pack" ... "fileN.Sims3Pack"
> s3ce * folder1\* folder2\* ... folderN\*
Quotes in the filename are only necessary if it contains space characters.
