Description
If you've played The Sims 3, you know there are tonnes of icons for; traits, moodlets, actions and more! What I've done for you guys is extract them all and convert them into transparent PNG and ICO files. You can use the ICO files as icons for shortcuts, games, files ect. The PNG ones can be used as normal images for virtually anything you can think of

Downloads
There are two different rar files, here is what is in each:

TS3 Icons PNG.rar - This includes all 405 icons in PNG format

TS3 Icons ICO.rar - This includes all 405 icons in ICO format
Tags: #the, #sims, #3, #pictures, #icons, #logos, #icon, #logo

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Some of these definately need to be used for in-game t-shirt stencils. I might just try to figure out how to do it myself now...

Man, you're a fucking genius! Thanks.

Winning the Game
Don't be absurd. This is an EA game! What's to win? You have already lost 50 bucks when you bought a game that contains even less than TS2 base game, and you're gonna spend ten times more if you want to get all the features that you enjoyed in TS2!

I downloaded it at once. If I'll use them is another thing.
How did you do this? Is there a possibility for extracting the music, too?

Anywhere, they aren't for The Sims 3, they are extracted from The Sims 3 so you can use them as ordinary icons
