The Sims 3: Need Help on Exact Installation Steps

Post by zamk89 on Sat 30 Jul 2011, 16:14

All the TS3 games were downloaded from * Games4theworld * torrents.

I installed TS3 from from scratch (Starting from TS3 Base Game) following the instructions on:

As instructed by the guide, I downloaded the latest Fix as well from:

Here are the steps I performed (No cracks replaced the original .exe files):

01. Installed TS3 Base game
02. Installed Town Life Stuff (Updated the base game)
03. Installed World Adventures (Before installing changed SKU number from 7 to 2 in Regedit, did not touch patch files in "# Crack" files)
04. Installed High End Loft Stuff
05. Installed Ambitions
06. Installed Fast Lane Stuff
07. Installed Late Night
08. Installed Outdoor Living Stuff (Changed SKU number from 2 to 1 in Regedit)
09. Installed Generations
10. Applied ALL fixes from the 'Ultimate Fix' download. (Have not applied crack yet.)

After all the above, I opened the launcher and proceeded to the Update Tab. No matter how many time I click on Refresh or how long I waited, no updates were provided for any of the expansions.

I have tried having the expansions updated one at a time "After installing Town Life Stuff", but no updated could be performed. As I have not applied the crack, the 'Town Life Stuff' icon on the bottom left is greyed out.

Did I execute any part wrongly? Would really appreciate the help.

The Fix' guide says "if" there is an update available. If there's no update available, just move on.
When you apply the crack correctly - which you can do at this point - the icon will show up again.
Good luck!
