If it's been awhile since you've saved a household, house or community lot and it's sitting in your Library folder, you can view the files with S3PE.



These instructions may be different, depending on how you have S3PE setup to to open the package files.

- If you're searching for a specific file in your Library folder, click on Date Modified to see most recent files at the top of the list and make note of the name.


1. Open S3PE

Open S3PE, go to File > Open and browse to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Library - Then look for the file you just noted.



2. Look at the Tags

You'll be looking for two types of Tags:


SNAP: These are also thumbnail photos of what the file is. These seem to be single Sims or families.



ICON: These are thumbnail photos of what the file is. These are usually houses or community lots.



3. Exit

When finished, click either File > Exit, or the X button up top right of S3PE to exit.



End Note:

If you want to rename it, do it manually from the Library folder. So you don't endup with duplicate files. (Right-click on file and select rename.)

Dek Thank you very much for this Mrs Flynn. I love the fact that you break up the harvestables by their plant type as well as by expansion pack. Oh, and alphabetically as well! Thank you so very much!
