Is it possible to install an expansion later without losing game progress? [SOLVED]

Post by Angel29 on Tue 08 Oct 2013, 07:08

I have a question about the Sims 3 game. I'm Dutch, sorry for my English.
If i installed the game and all the expansions and start playing, is it possible when a new expansion pack comes out later to install it on top of the others without losing all the progress? Or do i have to start all over with installing when i want to install a new expansion?

Hello,

Yes, there is absolutely no problem with that. You can safely add expansions/stuff packs without having to worry about losing any savegames. Wink

However, sometimes it can happen that during regular play, the saves can get damaged, but this has nothing to do with adding expansions - and it is also rather rare. But just to be sure: you should backup your savefiles regularly, for example to an external hard-drive. Go to My documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and copy the whole Saves folder to a safe place. Do this regularly (depending on how often you play the game).

I hope this helped you. Smile
