A few general questions about installing/uninstalling the game

Post by mrmot on Thu 07 Mar 2013, 14:04

Hi guys!

First of all, thanks for doing a wonderful job!! Very Happy

I have a few questions regarding the Sims 3 and its expansions in general. Your answers will be much appreciated! Smile
All my games are downloaded from G4TW btw:

1. Can you install expansion packs in a different order of which they came out? For instance, I install the base game, then University Life, then Pets? I know this wasn't possible with the Sims 2, but just checking.

2. If I have, let's say, all the expansion packs, can I delete some of them, and will my game still work? For instance, I have all of them but want to delete Pets and a few stuff packs?

3. Do I need Origin in order for my game to work? It told me to install and in time to time to update, but do I need it, since all my games are from G4TW?

Thanks! Smile

1. Install them in whatever order you want! If you decide that you want ambitions, after having pets, supernatural and University installed, go ahead! Very Happy There's no specific order that you need to install them in, though some people do feel better about doing so in order.

2. The only reason your game wouldn't work is if your save is in a town included with the expansion you removed.

3. Origin isn't required at all. In some cases, we do recommend installing it, but normally it's not an issue. Smile

Anything else you have questions about?

Nope, that's that! Smile Thank you!

I can't believe you can install the games in any order! That's a lot more practical. I remember when I played The Sims 2 (or was it the original The Sims?) and when you would do that the whole game crashes and you have to uninstall and install all over again! Didn't even come to mind that it's no problem now, so I'm glad I asked! Smile

Hey! New question! Smile
In the installation guide for Adventures it says something very different from other Sims 3 installation guides:

2. Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3 and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.
3. Open the '# Crack' file in this .rar file and open 'Crack 1'. Run the 'sims3patch.exe' and
follow on screen instructions. Change the 'C:\Program Files\Sims 3' to:
'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3' before Installing the Patch! (If you have

...And so forth. Should I do all this since I already have a lot of other expansions installed?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Unfortunately we were not able to get back to you in time. I'd like to apologize for that.

Do you still need assistance?

Hello,

You could get a region error when you install World Adventures. It doesn't always happen, but when it does, follow those instruction to be able to install the expansion.
