Sim 3 expansions quick question

Post by kiten2979 on Tue 20 Aug 2013, 21:09

I hope this is in the right spot, I also checked around a bit and couldn't find the answer so here goes.  I already have the Sims 3 "a purchased copy" and I am wondering #1 if I can use the downloads you guys put up, and #2 do I still follow the exact instructions as in the How-to install sims 3?  Do I need to fix files for the sims 3 that it says to install?  Thanks so much in advance, again sorry if I have this in the wrong spot!  Noob

Hello,

Yes you can install the expansions that are available from "Games4TheWorld". Wink

Do it this way, if you have already installed the "base game":


1) Apply the "manual patch": http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

2) Download and install at least one of the following expansions:

Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations

3) Re-apply the manual patch (even if it says that your game is "updated already") !

4) Download and apply the "Ultimate fix". as described in steps 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


And that should be it ! Good luck Wink

P.S. Next time, if you have a question about The Sims, do NOT post it in "PC Downloads support" section. Post it where it says "The Sims (3) in-game problems/downloads support".
