    rename the file back from a .rar file to a .package file.
    Package files can be placed directly into the Mods folder.

    As a non-moder but a frequent CC user, I have to say that the gallery really doesn't help much with custom content. I honestly haven't seen any sims or buildings that use them, which is kind of a shame.

    @everthewildeone when you are in the gallery on the menu to the right there should be an option for advanced. click that and you should see a tick box labeled include cc, you should now be able s to see Sims/Builds with CC

    CC cannot be transferred via the gallery so you would need to track down the download site for any items that you would like to add to your game.

    Sorry if you didn't get this information before:

    You don’t need to open the cc package files. They can just be put into your mods folder. You may need to redownload the CC once the file association has been fixed if it became corrupted when you tried to open it.

    @Bananas_45 Thank you! I knew about having to download CC separately when you download a build or a sim. What I didn't know was that they had items with CC on the gallery.

    It would be great to see a page on the Gallery just showcasing Guru's cc uploads! I miss seeing/ downloading all the great stuff from the Sims team.

    I like to use the gallery for finding builds, which I then will edit and mod myself. Sometimes to the point that it would have probably been easier to have just build the thing from the ground up :joy:
    I do find it's pretty good when I'm lacking inspiration though.

    It would be nice to have an optional field to put info about the CC we use on a sim that is uploaded in the library. I know that CC can't be shared, but it would be good to know what CC we need to find for a sim/house.
    Want to see my sims? find me in the Gallery by my Origin ID: metalfenix_Raf

    I don't use CC (so far), but I've seen a lot of people saying that they can't see their own items that have CC in their own Library if they're playing offline - it only shows up in their Library if they have the Gallery online with showing CC ticked. Maybe the Library could be disconnected from that setting? I'd want that for sure, as I usually have the Gallery offline.

    thats because these people cant do a simple thing.. the gallery works OK if you use CC and you want to import them, using TrayImporter for example, its very usefull to export your Sims with the CC they use, in a clean straight way. People who are 'afraid' of using CC dont have a clue of what a mod even is, dont listen to them, life is short, use as many CC´s you want, avoid scripted mods if you dont really want those (stay away from these 'mermaid' mods and you should be Ok), but if you have an old savegame you care to much for it, remmeber to make backups everyday! it takes 30 sec and can save your life!

    The gallery is great. I love that it doesn't include CC. There is so many ways to play the sims and every one plays differently. In TS3 CC being included ruined the gallery. So much stuff broke my game because I didn't use the same exact mods/content as the uploader. I'd download a sim and next thing I know everyone is showering in a shirt or boots, or their torso is separated from their legs, or bodies turn black or toddlers became long limbed twisted monsters... I don't want that again.

    dude the gallery DO include CCs, i dont know what you are doing there...

    I can’t use a gallery I am I console player and I wish sims would allow console players to use live mode on their consoles to use the gallery. I am very limited in library things and I am forced to confine to just the library of presets sims 4 please fix this

    This is something that needs to go through Sony first ,I believe, or maybe I'm thinking of mods.

    I LOVE the gallery. I use it all the time. If I like something I'll download it and if I don't have the CC I'll just replace it with my own. I've noticed a huge uptick in content I upload now that it is so streamlined.

    My only grumble is that I don't think my catalog works. I can see my uploads in the rotating image but when I click on "catalog" it just shows my first uploads. :(

    (I'm @MarisaTacoma if you want to find me. I've been doing some cool things lately, lol).

    I enjoy seeing the amount of creativity in the gallery, but concerning the online/offline thing, I had to turn on the connection each time I want to get on the gallery or my own catalog.

    Different images should be allowed for the Gallery, without being tagged as 'cc' (hidden from main search).. it's ok for Sims, so should be for Lots as well.

    I enjoy getting ideas from the gallery. It's fun to see unusual ideas, like treehouses.

    One of my favorite things is downloading famous people, like Martha Plimpton and Gene Roddenberry, who have unusual, non-modelesque looks. I also have a passion for downloading colorful, midcentury modern starter houses. Even when the descriptions tell me to use MOO when installing, I never do. And I modify anything that seems to have used MOO.

    I had tons of Sims and houses saved in my gallery's library, but unfortunately there was a bug recently and I lost everything. :(

    They Gallery lets me play quicker. Gives me ideas and helps me find different looking Sims, I never seem to be able to make on my own. I love it. Its one of my favorite features of TS4 <3
