Does anyone know of any sites where I can safely download custom hair styles? By safe I mean no trojans, viruses, things of that sort.

Avoid the site called The Sims Resource! It's not a safe site at all.

Good sites include:

I've always heard Peggy Zone recommended a lot for hair downloads.

But be aware that NO WHERE is totally safe. If a commerical site like this one, with the exchange, can't keep it totally safe then what hope does a private fan-site have?

Thanks for the tips.

Any sorry for seeming like a complete n00b here, but I've never downloaded custom content into The Sims 3, only The Sims 2. So how exactly do I do it? Where do I put the content?

No CC is 100% safe, but if you're careful what you download, you should run into a minimal amount of problems--none, if you're lucky.

If you check out my legacy info page here, the bottom of the info description has links to many of the CC sites that I've used and had good luck with.

I second what keleya said to definitely be very careful of anything from TSR, though. There's only one creator that I download anything from there, and that's Newsea.

So the Sims wiki is telling me to put the Mod folder in through My Documents and everything else is telling me to put it through Program Files.

Which one is correct?

Hey there. I never got the hang of installing CC, but if you are prepared to use the exchange I have a quick way of getting loads. Fully copy the link in my siggy for a safe, non CC download, which includes only hairs.

Okay, not true! First off one of the biggest problems with all this bad cc is people recommending unsafe cc as safe. Rose sims has a few items, including, but not limited to: http://sims3.crinrict.com/badcc/Images/rose_c018.png http://sims3.crinrict.com/badcc/Images/rose_sims3_hat.jpg http://sims3.crinrict.com/badcc/Images/NewMesh_rose_sims3_body1

that are damaging to the game, and cause an assortment of critical game play problems. Also, TSR is safe as long as you pay ATTENTION to what you are downloading, and realize that teen clothes can't be in the same category as adult and young adult. Basically, NOTHING and I repeat NOTHING, should ever be categorized for babies (hair, makeup, accessories, clothing). Toddlers are a category of their own, same with teen and elder. Male and Females shouldn't be mixed either.


For the love of all things sim, I am not trying to be mean but the reason the exchange is so crappy is not EA's fault, it's because people don't pay attention to what they are downloading, or at least test things before they re-upload for everyone else...and mess up our games too. Do some research before you download, and word to the wise...if you don't know what you are doing, you probably shouldn't download cc at all...but if you insist, just don't put it on the exchange. http://sims3.crinrict.com/badcc/en/BadCC_Clothing.html
Check that out!

There ARE problems with Peggy sims.

Just to name one, but there are others, and I agree with the fact that no site is completely 100% safe. Every time EA has a patch the cc's can go funky. TSR is good, but you need to know WHAT to stay away from...I posted the site at the bottom. Also just stay away from anything that is SHYMOO and waters things.
