Official Sims 3 question

Post by Vanessis on Tue 02 Apr 2013, 17:16

I have the official Sims 3 Base and the Ambitions expansion.
Will I get any problems installing other expansions knowing I have the original Base game?

Thank you for your time

Where did you install the base game from? (If it's steam, that's the problem)

Steam won't recognize any external data for its games, sadly. You can mod, but you can't add on expansions, not even if you had bought them. There's a couple options.

1. You can just play what you have through steam
2. You can download the base game from g4tw, and go from there
3. You can contact steam, they usually are willing to give people the activation code, so they can go through origin.
