Store updates & Crack installation

Post by lyricaltoye on Sun 18 Aug 2013, 18:05

I purchased the base game with the ambitions expansion.....i just downloaded Night Life World Adventures & Fast Lane Stuff...per the installation instructions it tells me to install the cracks for the base game and  ambitions but Im not sure if i need to do that since I have the actual disc....

Also if i wanted to download the store updates do i need to download each update individually or can I just upload the latest one and it include all the previous updates....

sorry if my questions seem stupid but I never downloaded games before so this is kinda new to me:help:

//EDIT

one more thing....im trying to install world adventures and when i follow the instructions to install the various patches in the crack 3 folder i get an error message and when i try to install it tells me that the sims 3 needs to be updated but when i click update it says error and it cant be updated then closes im not sure what im doing wrong

Hello,

The most important thing first: so if you already have all these expansions installed, then I suggest you do the steps from 2 to 4 from here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

As for the so-called "store updates"; normally, this is the word for the monthly released "store items" from EA. These items can include anything you can choose/buy in the game like hairstyles, furniture, clothing, etc.

You can either download the stuff separately: http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/

Or you can go to http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html and look for "Store updates 1-26", but remember this only includes the items from 2009 until July 2011.

Also, the site
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/  is still "under construction" - not all items have been uploaded yet, and the site is not being worked at currently (due to the absence of the Admin).
