Old stuff on the newer patches

Post by purpleqt22 on Mon 14 Oct 2013, 08:53

Ok I think this is my last question for the night... but will it harm the game if I download older CC/Mods on the new patch? Meaning if there is CC/or Mods that I would like to have for my game and the CC/Mod hasn't been updated to the newest patch is it still ok to download?
Also, when I download collection files how and where do i put those downloads? Thanks for the help you guys are awesome!Noob Help

Well it depends, but generally no. Check in the comments on the file, if people say it works with your version then go ahead. Otherwise don't download as it will mess up your game...
Your collection download must be a .package file, so you should putit with the others: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages.

Got it but when I download the collections and they extract in a folder with all the stuff in it, do i need to open the folder and copy and paste the items back into the package folder or is safe to let the folder icon stay in the package folder?

No, you must paste them in the Package folder...
