What is a PACKAGE file?
A PACKAGE file is a resource package file used by various Electronic Arts (EA) games, including The Sims 2, The Sims 3, The Sims Online, Spore, and SimCity 4. It stores an archive of one or more game files, often in an XML format and may include 3D models, textures, sounds, and other game data, such as characters and neighborhood information. PACKAGE files are saved in EA's standard DBPF archive format.
Many PACKAGE files can be edited and repackaged with SimPE, a free editor for The Sims 2. They may also be created and modified with The Sims 2 ContentManager, a program officially released by Electronic Arts for modifying The Sims 2 content.
