Post by chucknorris5 on Mon 11 Jul 2011, 02:01

Hi i need help in installing the expansion packs for Sims 3. I downloaded another torrent of the sims 3 but idk if i need to download yours and install it to be able to install the expansion packs. Also can i get a step by step process on how to install the expansions. I would really appreeciate it if it is no trouble. I read the installation guide that is on the Sims 3 fix but i didnt really understand, do i need your sims 3 torrent to be able to install the expanisions or can i use any. But please help me out in doing this i really would appreciate it if you help me out. I hope you guys can help me out im new with torrents. thank you

Hi,
You don't need the G4TW base game with the expansions, only if you run into problems in the future someone may ask you to download it and install it instead of the one you have to see if that might solve your problem.
The installationguide that comes with the fix is for the fix only. You don't use it during the installationprocess for The Sims 3 and its expansions.
Favorlock's installationguide for The Sims 3 should be sufficient when installing The Sims 3 ans expansions.
Please let us know if this helps, also, don't hesitate to ask if you run into any more problems.

Hello,

All of the expansions can be found on www.games4theworld.org .
Just follow these steps very carefully: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read

Please note that you need Generations in order to make it all work. Do not miss a step, read everything. If you don't know how to install the expansions; an "# Installation Guide.txt" is included with them all.

Hello,

Everything you need - including Serial Keys - is included in the included "# Installation Guide.txt". Read it very carefully!
If you want to update the game to the latest version, just apply this Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (Read the instructions VERY carefully on where to put which files!)

wait just to ask when doing the ultimate fix i only need to do the steps 10 - 14. Alsso i must have the game already installed to update the sims 3 again or do i update it before i install it. I know these are kinda stupid questions but i want to be 100% sure of what im doing.

When doing the Ultimate Fix, only apply the Generations Crack to the main The Sims 3 folder:

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

And yes, in order to update, you must have the game installed first.

Here is a simple little guide I wrote up, summarizing Admin's directions. Make sure you install Generations right after the base game. Then any other expansions you want. Ignore steps 1-3 if you aren't uninstalling everything.

1. Uninstall all Sims 3 applications from your computer.
2. Delete Electronic Arts folder in Program Files, if it's still there.
3. Restart computer.
4. Install The Sims 3 base game, then Generations, then any other expansion pack you want. Only install them, don't do any patches or cracks!
5. After everything is installed, open the Sims 3 Launcher and update.
6. After updating, use the Generations crack from the file linked below (or you can just use the crack included with Generations expansion you downloaded) and place it in C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin.
7. Play your game and enjoy!

Woaah, there's no need to reinstall everything? The problem is just a mis-placed crack.

I know, I said ignore steps 1-3. He asked for a guide in the first post, so I posted one.

The Generations crack is in the right place.

Re: Need Help Installing The Sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by CrimsonKiss07 on Thu 21 Jul 2011, 22:16

Hi everyone! I'm new here and hope everyone is doing well. I have a quick question. I have the "MUST READ INSTALL SIMS" page open and I am following the steps like told. I just installed the Sims3 Base Game, but in order to install Generations, it says I need to update the game to the latest version. Now I have the file that will update the program to version 1.22 which is the only way Generations can be installed, but your instructions don't say anything about updating the Base game. So, do I need to do this or is there a way to install Generations without it? Thank you so much for the help. I've been dying to play for days, but I kept getting the message "The Sims must close" and then it does. Thanks again! Smile

EDIT: Oh and also, can I download the EA Download Manager when I'm done so that I can use my add ons and store items that I also downloaded? They don't seem to work without it, but I could be wrong.

Please reply to me. I really need help! I see a few posts from the Admin, could you please give me some guidance on my questions. Thanks again so much and I don't mean to be a bother! Smile

Hello,

That's correct. But on the Fix, you'll have to follow all the steps.
