Is there a way...

Is there a way to send someone a sim or house I made if they don't have a sims3.com account? A good friend of mine bought a used copy of the game from a friend of his who didn't want it any more... and he can't register for sims3.com because the serial number has already been used. I want to share some of my content with him, so I'm wondering if there's a way to do this without the website, and by just emailing him some files or something.

I hope you guys can help me out!

    Exactly what file do I email him though? And how does he install the content I send him?

    Click on the "share" button just like you were going to upload it to the exchange.

    Once its in the launcher, select it, then click on the button that says "show file".

    Those are the files you will need to send.


    Now... your friend, they will need the launcher as well.

    When your friend receives the files, they need to put the file in "my documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Downloads"

    Once they are in that folder, open the launcher and install like normal.
