So my plan is to get away from the launcher and origin (As I have hard copies of the game and a base game that predates 2012). I believe that means I either have to go with the patch for predating 1.67 or 1.67 itself. I'm really unsure about how to do this and have read posts on here all over the place and not really answering my question. I know store content is not .package files and I'm really curious how I would add them to my game without the launcher. If the launcher is unavoidable then I guess that's okay But I definitely want to steer clear of origin. Any advice would be nice

Store files can be converted to packages. I converted all of mine. It has been ages since I did it, but I think I used the multi-installer and then had to decrapify them.

I decrapify first and then convert to packages using multyinstaller, I then proceed to throw it all into CC Magic.

You need the launcher to download store items, but you can install them as package files. From Don Babilion: http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...073#post5342073

The thing about decrapifying store objects is this: objects which have specific moodlets or actions may be nullified when decrapifying. The modern tablet, which allows the sim to listen to tabcasts and learn skills while doing other things will no longer function - that is one object I have purchased that I tested decrapifying on.

@chicvibe Did you test by decrapping the Sims3Pack,or the package/dcdb? If you're testing on an existing save you'd need to decrap the save also, and the ccmerged file to preserve the special features. Otherwise, don't decrap- just use s3rc -f to fix only.
