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.

Thanks these are sweet! I know I'll spend a ton of time replacing my current icons for just about everything.

To ZoraGraves you can places the icons anywhere you want and when you choose to change icons for something you just need to navigate to where they are by using the browse feature.

You said these are all the icons from the game, I have them extracted and the ones I have are over 600 (no doubles) and the quality of them is better too. I'm a little confused.

22 Moody T's for moody teens

Tell me what you think. I used the 22 moodlets in these stencils. And created (6 so far) teens to match the moods. Too tired to put in all the credits yet. And still have more screens/teens to make.

Thanks for these again. I might be uploading to MTS after I finish. ;D

I remember when someone did this for Sims 2, and I have used them ever since because it helps alleviate the "handicap" of being dyslexic (I can look for the icons on my desktop instead of stopping and reading every folder to find what I'm looking for). I was beginning to get frustrated because I was running out of unique Sim icons for my folders and whatnot, and then I stumble across this!

I have to say that this is a huge deal to me, most especially because I work at home and do graphics design, so I'm having to deal with getting visually swamped without the unique icons for my important things.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I wanted to thank you for making these! I use them over at insanejournal under the username simminit. You have been credited! I've finally decided to create my own sim site dedicated to building and wanted icons to use in posts and things like that! (Especially since I'm just starting out, I will not post on mts until I feel like I built a house good enough!).
