Generations installation odd, I think... [SOLVED]

Post by Psythink on Sun 17 Jul 2011, 11:30

Hi there, this is my first time installing something from your site. So, I just downloaded your Sims 3 Generation which is more than 4.7 GB in size and installed it right away. The installation completed, i haven't apply the crack yet cause i read in the installation guide with the fix, that you must not apply the crack if you haven't install all the EPs you want. The problem is, when i have finished installing the generation in the C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Generations it says that it only contains 967 MB, isn't it supposed to be larger in size?? I just think it's odd to see the EP in less than a GB, i don't know if i'm installing it correctly. HELP! Does this seems odd to you or am i just being paranoid? Thank you in advance, this site is awesome. alien

Hello,
I had to check my own directory but no 976 MB seems about right, it is the same size here.
I think this will clear it up a little: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1418-the-sims-3-simple-installer-now-available , apparently those large files come with a whole lot of things you don't necessarily need. I'm sure another mod can give you more detailed information about this if you like, but for now you can play the game.
Enjoy:).

That's a good question, one I wouldn't dare answer, so I'm leaving that up to one of the others.
Glad I could be of help!

Hello,

No, the files you extracted from the downloaded .rar file are only used for the installation itself, not for playing the game. So yes, you can delete those.
Though, if you delete the originally downloaded .rar file itself, you can not seed the file any more, which is not really appreciated by the P2P community.

Thanks, i don't have any intention to delete the original rar file i only want to delete the ones i unzip. I'll keep on seeding, don't worry Smile.

Thanks guys..

Admin edit: Don't worry, we won't give you less support if you don't seed, but it's just not really appreciated by the community and other people who want the files. Anyhow, thanks for seeding and have fun playing!
