Curious questions about installing expansions and extras!

Post by winterluna on Wed 27 Feb 2013, 19:01

So I downloaded everything here because I'm a hoarder. >_> Problem, I know. But is there a certain order I need to install the expansions or is it just a install in whatever order kinda thing? Also; when I install the extra neighborhoods, store updates, etc, should I do that before doing the manual patch and the fix? I'm not new to cracks and the like, but I want to do this all with no problems. Know I have to install the expansions before doing the fix and patch. I tried looking in the forums, but didn't find anything. Chance I overlooked it lol. Any help is appreciated!

Hello,

There's no specific order, no. As long as you follow these steps in the right order, that's all: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps and RE-DOWNLOAD both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix!

As for the Custom Content, I recommend installing them after having tested everything.

Thank you so much for the help! I wasn't sure if there was or wasn't and figured it was better to ask than not and be screwed lo. So then after I install the fix and patch, I download them all again?

The ultimate fix and the manual patch. After I install them both, I redownload them?

Hello,

No, what I mean is that you should re-download them when you get to that specific step. For example, when you get to step 3, re-download the Ultimate Fix, don't use an old version you still have stored on your PC.

As for the manual patch - since it's quite a big file (1.2GB) - if you're 100% sure that it's the 1.50 manual patch downloaded from this website, you may skip re-downloading that one.
Do re-download the Ultimate Fix though!

Oh. Haha, I'm such a blonde it's sad. I've actually just downloaded the patch and the fix yesterday. So I'm good on that? Don't have to download anything else?

Hello there,

If you downloaded them both yesterday... yes, you're good, no need to re-download.
Just be sure you're not using an old(er) download!
