It worked. I now have a chicken coop in my game. The process was really easy. The hardest part? I had to get the admin password for my computer from my hubby. Oh, and I didn't have winzip (to unpack the .rar downloads) so I had to get a freebie version. Again, not HARD but just a few extra steps.

I followed these instructions: http://pixelpixies.tumblr.com/installcc

I didn't have time to play at all but I did go into my game and check out the coop briefly and it appears to be working just fine. It was making noises and I saw hens and my sim could interact with the coop.

The only drawback I can see to adding cc as .package files is they seem to be more "laggy" than sims3packs. From what I was reading, the game reads EACH file separately so if you have a ton it takes a while to read them all and causes lag. So if you have a lot of .package you should probably get a cc manager to bundle them to make the reading process faster. I'm going to read up a bit more on that to see if there is some magic number when things start to get laggy. I'd like to add a bit more cc to my game (hairs and clothes mostly) but not if it's going to slow my game.

Thanks for all the info! Really good to know! I'll have to try it out. I do have a few package files already, mostly hairs. I haven't noticed any lag, although my game is laggier in general since I installed Pets. Don't think that has anything to do with package files, though.
