How to download expansions into Origin? [SOLVED]

Post by feycat on Mon 24 Nov 2014, 22:11

Hello,
I have the legit Sims 3 starter pack, including The sims 3, Late night and HEL stuff.
I bought it a couple of months before, so it is the Origin version.
I want to download seasons, generations and university and some more stuff packs to try out before I buy them with real money,
but I don't know how to install them in the Origin folder, because it's a little different here.
Can you please help me?

(I have read this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18199-legit-sims-3-from-origin-and-trying-to-install-expansion?highlight=sims+3
before asking, and I wonder if there's something quicker to do instead of doing this routine over and over again for every pack)

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

So, you already looked into this guide here?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Installing the expansion packs is exactly the same up to the last step. What you need to do is download them first, obviously. After they are downloaded, extract each EP's RAR file with WinRAR, and double click the Autorun inside of each folder you extracted. This will install the expansion pack. Do this for Seasons, Generations, and University Life. Only after you finished installing all of them, continue with the Step 2 of the guide.

The difference is that, when you are at the Step 4, you need to take the two files inside the #Crack folder from the Ultimate Fix and copy them to Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Select "Copy and Replace" when prompted. There's no need to do the complete guide for every expansion pack: you only need to do it once, after installing all of the EPs you want. So, install Seasons, Generations, and University Life and then continue with the Step 2 onwards (only doing it once). Wink

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

I am so sorry for the late answer, I had so much in mind in the past months so I did not touch the computer ^^

Anyway, this helped so much and my game is working perfectly.
Thank you so so much!
