Help I am about to start downloading. [SOLVED]

Post by ImperfectionisBeauty on Thu 16 May 2013, 18:02

I have always been a big Sims fan and had all the expansion packs on my PC, well I just got a Macbook a few months ago and I miss playing! I have never done this via torrents, I am just learning how to download music on torrents so I am wondering what is my first step. I read 2 posts one on the opening page about downloading The Sims 3 on MAC and DMGs (no idea what those are) and then another that says "before downloading the sims 3" so I don't know what to do first and I am scared. This won't ruin my computer will it?

Yep, I believe it is mentionned in both those guides (section 3 of the first one for instance).
Good luck!

Thank you! I just read that lol I am dumb! I will update you once I am finished!!

//EDIT

I got the base game but I am having a hard time with the expansions it isn't the same way. I am using the downloads on the download page. I did the sims 3 generations and it finished then it didn't have a link that I could put in the app folder?

Hello,

Can you explain in which step you're having problem? I didn't understand. What link about Generations? After you download the Generations from the site, you should open it with StuffIt Expander, and install it.

Sorry I think I figured it out I have to open it with stuffit expander I guess. One more question before I try again, if I just buy the base game will the expansions still work? Sorry I know I don't know a lot
