SIMS 3

Post by pearlsareforever on Fri 04 Jul 2014, 00:36

Hello there. I was able to install the Sims 3 via torrent at TPB. 

It's running perfectly, except for:

There are no worlds/towns to choose from and the main start up menu does not contain anything.

Im running it into a Mac. The only thing is, I do not know which FIX will solve the problem. 

A little help please. Thank you. The Sims 3 plumbob  Help

Hello,

It's good to hear that you manged to install The Sims 3 already ! But at first you should update the game with the latest "manual patch", here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch


Then you need to download and install at least one of the following expansions (that is really a necessary step): Into the Future, Movie Stuff, Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.


After you installed at least one of them, re-run the manual patch, even if it says that your game is updated already. At the end, you do steps #3 and #4 here:

Do these last two steps carefully, and then start the game. Good luck !

Thank you for your kind assistance on this matter. I just needed to update to update the game before proceeding to Step 11 of the #Installation Guide. Works Perfectly! 

BTW, are there new expansions compatible for Mac?

All expansions are complete ( you can see it from the size ) so, you should be able to install them Smile

I have to object (slightly) to what the previous poster said: no, the expansions from Games4TheWorld are not "directly" compatible for Mac; in fact, installing them on Mac OS X is totally different than in Windows, and it requires other steps.


If you need assistance with the installation on Mac, feel free to open a new thread here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/f32-mac-support


Everything I told you in THIS thread is actually meant for Windows - did you edit your opening post after my reply ? I can't seem to remember that you mentioned (originally) that you were running it on a Mac - but then, I may be mistaken. Facepalm


The "must-read"-guide is indeed made for Windows - and if you want to play the games on mac, post a new thread in the other forum I linked to above.

I totally agree with you Carlos, I did not precise since some mac user seems to be able to install them without problems and to my knowledge too, the OP didn't mention mac, so I guessed pearlsareforever manage to install everything alright.


But you are right to be precise Smile

It's OK. Smile  But unless you manage to somehow "emulate" a Windows environment on Mac, like with using virtual machines or tools like "WINE", it's - from what I know - not possible to run Windows stuff on Mac. 

But let's not get off-topic now - things like that should be discussed elsewhere. Wink
