I have some vital questions.

Post by GirlPrada on Wed 02 Jul 2014, 03:34

First, I love and adore all of you guys. I used your downloads a couple/few years ago and now I'm doing it again, starting from scratch.

I have some vital questions and I can't find the answer on your forum. If it's there and I've missed it, I'm very sorry for wasting your time, but unfortunately, I've reverted back to "newbie" status and have forgotten everything I had learned years ago.

Things are a little different for me now since I'm starting from nothing and attempting to download ALL the Sims 3, plus expansion and stuff packs. 

First Question:
I read the directions completely and thoroughly, however, it says I have to install at least ONE of the listed EP or SP and the list begins with Generations which is #8 in the order by which everything was released. So, with that being said...


Can I install the base game and then Generations first in order to complete the initial install process and THEN install all the other EP and SP out of order?

OR

Do I need to install all the EP and SP in order and then do the fix at the very end before I can play?


Again, I'm so sorry if this was covered somewhere, but I promise I looked before emailing you.  :newfag:

Hello,


I've split your post and moved it to the right section. Smile  That said, you only need to have the base and ONE of these expansions listed there. It doesn't have to be Generations, you can also install Supernatural or Seasons. Or install all of them; and there is no specific order either, in which to install the expansions.

Just make sure to install the base game first, and then apply the latest manual patch from here:

After that, install the expanion(s). When you're done, it's a good idea to re-run the manual patch, even if it says the games is "up-to-date" already. The next steps are steps #3 and #4 here:

And that's it ! If you have more questions, go ahead. Good luck for now though ! Smile
