I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this, so I'm sorry if it's not.

Anyways- I have finally finished getting all of my CC together after having to redo it all. Now I'm at the point where I need to start organizing and merging it, but I've got a bit of an issue that I'm hoping you can help me with first.

I've heard wonderful things about CC Magic, and I would love to use it. However, I have a bit of a roadblock since I'm on a Mac.

My question is this... is CC Magic like a "one-and-done" thing (like Delphy's Multi-Pack Extractor) or does the game actually tap into it somehow? I can use my husbands Mac (he has Parallels) if all I need to do is use it to get the files organized, and then move the folder. However, if I cannot access the folder or if the game somehow needs it to work, then obviously that's not an option for me.


Thank you so much for your help! You guys have been wonderfully helpful and patient with me. I can't thank you enough.

i never thought about that.. but what i know is you need CC magic it self to fire up the game BUT if you use the regular sims 3 icon to start the game.. your cc u organised using CC magic will still be there.. so perhaps that's possible to pick up the folders CC magic used to organise and transfere it to the mods folder.. BUT that will only apply for packages only since you'll have to use the launcher to install the sims3packs... PLUS, CC magic does more than that, it compresses the files for you to reduce the game lag.

I did some experimenting around and so- for others that may find this thread wondering the same thing- it is possible to do that.

I used Parallels on my husband's Mac to run CC Magic. I compressed the files together in the default folder (I was too tired to try sorting all 2,700 of them), and then moved the compressed packages (under Electronic Arts> The Sims 3 > Mods > Cache > Set) back to my computer, where they now rest under EA > Sims 3 > Mods > Packages.

So yay for that working!
