I thought it might be nice with a guide to changing the music in the game. I have seen many questions about it but few good answers.
I recently discovered the joys of the portable stereo, I bring it everywhere, even the gym and the library! I thought my sims might get thrown out of the library but they didn't so now they can rock out with that positive moodlet even when studying in the "peaceful" library atmosphere.
So I quickly realized it would be nice if my sims favorite music was also mine, otherwise you can really get tired of listening to simpop all day.
Also I haven't tried to have a rock star yet but when I do he will totally be listening to AC/DC!
"Wanna be a Rock 'N' Roll Singer", "It's a long way to the top if ya wanna Rock 'N' Roll" and "Let There Be Rock"!
Anyway, that turned out to be very easy: put whatever you like in the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Custom Music
folder (mp3 files) and it will play on the "custom music" channel. Then make the sim's favorite be custom music and you can be "enjoying music" together.
But how about changing the music in Build and Buy mode? If you spend a long time building a house that elevator music can get on your nerves...
Is it even possible to change the default music in Sims 3 like it was in the other two? I haven't been able to find the answer elsewhere and I can't find anything which looks remotely promising in the Sims 3 folder in either Documents or Program Files. There's a music tab in Options but it doesn't seem to do anything except to let you play previews or am I blind?
And can you change the music on the other radio stations? For instance if you're an inappropriate sim it might be amusing to play some really inappropriate music on the kids channel...
