I bought Sims 3 Base Game in the shop 2 years ago on CD
So i installed it on my Mac put the Serial Code that came with it
And Update the game fully.

But i want to get Expansions packs for it like Pets, Uni Life etc..., but how to i get it to work with My Sims 3?

This is what i did:

I started with University Life.
I got University Life of a torrent and i installed it to Sims 3, then i Copied the 2 Files that Admin provided on the the Fix Folder and i Replaced the 2 Files with the 2 Files that the Admin provided, then i launch Sims 3, it launches with Uni Life Icon and then i put my CD of Sims 3 in and i play it, i see Uni Life background but then when it loads i can only play the Sims 3 Original Game not Uni life Sad
I dont know what i did wrong maybe i should start with another expansion? Or idk Sad

Can you help me out please Sad

Ultimate Fix's installation guide says this;
"In order for this Fix to work, you need AT LEAST one of the following expansions: University Life,
70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry
’s Sweet Treats, Showtime,
Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations
!"

Try downloading and installing one of these expansions,if University Life didn't work,download one of the other expansions mentioned above. Apply ultimate fix and update your game. Then retry installing UL. I hope this works.

I also Installed Supernatural and done the same method with the FIX
But when i opened Sims 3 Game Launcher
The Icon for Supernatural was not highlighted only Uni Life was
But it messed up my game it kept on changing my version sometimes it was 1.00.455 something like that and then the other was like everything 0 (0.00.00.0)

I Uninstalled everything because it messed up my game

So i want to start from the beginning.

I will Install Sims 3 with the CD on Mac
Update to the latest Version.
Then Which Expansion will i download first?

I think it will be better if you download The Sims 3 from G4TW. You can get full support. Just use the cd key from your cd.

You can start with Seasons and if you see this one works, download the rest.
And yes, it will work. You can play your base game with any kind of problems, can't you?

Hello,

I linked to the guide for the "creating DMG" part. Sorry, I don't have any usable Mac knowledge, so I'll leave helping to a Mac user.

//EDIT

TCPCohen

Am having problems now
I made Sims 3 Seasons in DMG then installed it and crack it
I used the Crack in the (≠Crack folder)
So then it worked everything worked Seasons was working very good.

Now i want to download all the expansions so..
I started with University Life i done same procedure DMG, Installed and Crack.
But
its not working Only Seasons was working it was Highlighted in the Game
launcher, but University life wasn't WhatDidUJustCallMe? I think am doing something
wrong with the crack, i used the 2 Crack in the (≠Crack folder)
But i
noticed there is other folders that have cracks in them, do i use them
do i use the folder where it says University life? and put the 2 cracks
in that Folder in -Sims 3 University life- instead of Sims 3?


Admin edit: Please use the "Edit" button, instead of double-posting. Thank you!

I had the same problem and I fixed it. This is what I wrote in another topic:
"And another point,after I installed the University Life EP,I applied the
Ultimate Fix(It was the latest version and had University Life) . Then I
had a huge problem with the launcher. It didn't
recognize the EP's that updated base game (70s 80s 90s stuff,katy
perry's sweet treats,supernatural,university life etc.)
I managed
to fix this by replacing the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll inside The sims
3/Game/Bin with the ones inside the latest EP's #Crack folder. I used
University Life's crack. I hope this topic helps people who have the
same problem."

After installing university life,don't use the crack of university life in Ultimate fix,crack your game with University Life's own #Crack.I mean the one inside the .dmg that you've created.
And no,you should put that tsw.exe and tslhost.dll into your sims 3.app>right click "show package contents">Contents>Resources>Transgaming>c_drive>Program Files>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3>Game>Bin

Try these and let us know if it works.
