Good afternoon, and happy Thanksgiving.

I am writing to ask about navigating this website and, speficially, accessing the greater Download section for "Sims III" content. In all cases I have looked, I have only seen about five hundred downloads Surely, there is more than that, and more than the Featured items? This is the page I clicked on, and as you can see, there are approximately five hundred items. Surely, there are more. Right?

It's embarassing, because it's a fundamental question about navigating the site. However, I am unable to figure anything out or access the downloads aside from those.


Thank you for any assistance.

Good Evening, and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

It appears that there might be a numeric limit when you're on the main search page, but if you dig deeper by selecting a specific search (example: Lots & Housing) you'll see that there are 5000 uploads, digging deeper by selecting what type of Lots & Housing shows more results. I hope this makes sense

Thank you for your reply. It's a darn shame that there isn't a means to simply view EVERYTHING.

I can see your point, but if I was only interested in Mods (for example), I would hate to have to view pages of Lots, Sims, Etc. just to get to what I'm looking for. I'd likely give up and look elsewhere.

But an option for people who do want to see everything would be great, unless we already have that and I've not noticed it

I believe you are in a "filtered" view of the downloads, just below the downloads on the left hand side, you will see the text "Click here to see all downloads", clicking on it will allow you to see an "unfiltered" view of the TS3 downloads.

@Bejaymac - You win the Internet for the day, thank you! I've obviously never ventured that far down the page before.

It's also high time MTS had a 'sort by number of downloads / recommendations' function, to see for example what is the most popular lot on the site. The official exchange has had this for way over a decade, and it's a great way to 'shop'
