How to properly install all Expansions ?

Post by Gh0sT-NoVa on Wed 24 Apr 2013, 02:50

Hey guys ,so i downloaded Sims 3 , WA , Ambitions , Late Night , Generations.
I skipped all the " Stuff Packs " , and the later Expansions like Pets , Uni Life etc.

So now I have installed them according to the guide , applied he " Ultimate Fix " etc. All works fine tks for the game btw Wink
So now I plan to install the newer Expansions , Stuff Packs etc , so how do I do it from now on ?

Do I just install them , don't crack , and use the Ultimate Fix cracks to crack them all ?
Do I still have to copy paste crack for the " Sims 3 " base game ? ( The #Crack inside Ultimate Fix , no the Sims 3 Base Game crack in the Ultimate Fix )

Hello,
Please read the instructions on http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly. When you are pasting the crack for your game, follow the installation manual in the Ultimate Fix. If you don't understand, follow the instructions below:
1. Install the base game and all the expansions you want. When the installation wizard asks you to update, click yes.
2. Apply the manual patch which can be found on the above webpage.
3. Download Ultimate Fix. Drag and drop the content inside the folder of University Life & 70s, 80s and 90s Stuff & Seasons & Supernatural & Diesel Stuff & Katy Perry's Sweet Treats & Showtime & Master Suite Stuff & Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin if you have one or some or all of these expansions.
4. For Outdoor Living Stuff, Late Night, High End Loft Stuff, Fast Lane Stuff and Ambition expansion packs, drag and drop the content inside the folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 (Expansion pack name here)\Game\Bin if you have one or some or all of the expansions.
5. Lastly, open the #crack folder. Drag and drop the content to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Then you are done. Happy simming!

Hmmm well this is not the answers to what i actually asked but tks for the replies.

I actually got them all to work , Expansions etc. I even patch up , updated it to the latest version ( I think it's latest because since my latest Expansion is only Generations ) , i applied Ultimate Fix too etc.

So now thing is I want to install few of the stuffs packs which i skipped in order. Also the more new Expansions packs.

Nvm , i guess i will just try and error , if i get stuck or something not working i will ask for help again , tks :newfag:

That's exactly the instructions that both of the previous replies gave you. You install all that you want, then re-apply the manual patch (yes, this is even if you're at the most recent version, it helps prevent some errors). Then grab the #crack out of the fix and apply that in the proper location. It's no different than installing the previous expansions to your game.

Ah i see ok , that's more clear , tks for the reply =)

One more thing , i didn't know such thing till now i started back playing Sims3 , now EA made like a DLC items in the game ?? Which costs us Simolones or something like that , real cash that is.....so since ours are " cracked " versions....is there a way to get them ??

Or all this are online features and we must have original game and have to pay for them :newfag:

Usually I would direct you to the g4tw mediafire account. However, it's down. So yes, we will have the items available again, but they aren't up right now. You can find other sources if you'd like though. If you want to wait, watch the forum, and Admin will make a sticky about where he uploads all the content for us. Smile

Sweet ! That be great ! But seriously , on EA's part....they are this desperate for money ?? They releasing " Stuff Packs " etc , and their Expansions cost exactly like a brand new game instead of Expansion prices.....yet they are making DLC items in game o 0

Not to mention new Town / City / Location to be play they too are all DLC which cost money !

Wao...High End Loft Stuffs pack , its just a few extra things but the game size before even install is already 4 GB ++ ??

Sim games are seriously way too big....

I calculated before , if i were to get all original , not including stuff packs , till Show Time Expansion , not even the latest , it will cost me easily over 200 $ total....

But US currency is 3X here , so it actually be costing me over 700$ ++
Which i rather spend the money on PC hardwares....

Two years ago, I was still buying the games. I spent over $200 in just a few months, for pre-orders for Generations (and Medieval, at 50 each), along with a few stuff packs. Blew my entire summer's pay in just that short time. It was terrible.
