Refreshed My computer, So....What's that mean for my Sims?

Post by Puke on Sun 22 Jun 2014, 15:23

I recently refreshed my computer which means everything was reset and uninstalled with the exception of my personal files. Which means everything that has to do with Sims is still there except the Sims. So, what I'm asking is what will happen to all the Sims files already there when I re-install the Sims and all my expansions?

Hello and sorry for the late reply, 

If you mean that you still have the folder "The Sims 3", located in My Documents/Electronic Arts, then it means you still have your old savefiles and any mods or custom content.

I would recommend though that before you install The Sims 3 and expansions, that you RENAME that folder, into anything you like. Just change the folder's name. After that, install everything you want. Next, before you actually start the game, rename the folder "The Sims 3", back to normal again.

You should be able to "pick up" from where you left, so to speak, at least theoretically. Good luck !
