The Sims 3 Complete Collection

Post by Keneliball on Sat 13 Dec 2014, 22:22

I downloaded the Sims 3 Complete Collection. I downloaded the base game and World Adventures just fine but any other expansion pack I try to download after WA I get a error/corrupt message. Is their something I had/have to do before each installment? I then try to download the torrents separately but Supernatural, Seasons, & Into The Future aren't available.

Edit: After downloading, the size was 27.7 GB..is that right?

Hello,

First of all: welcome to the Games4theworld Forum!

Can you post a screenshot of the error you get?
Did you use WinRAR or another extraction software?

How exactly did you extract the expansions folders from the .RAR file ? You are NOT supposed to start the installation from within the .RAR file. 

You just drag an expansion folder (from the Complete Collection .RAR) with your mouse OUT of the .RAR file, for example onto your Windows desktop. You should end up with that expansion folder with all its contents then - on the desktop. After the extraction close WinRAR and go inside the folder and re-start the installation.

Good luck !


P.S. you did make sure that the download finished 100% in your torrent client ?

Here is what I did for Install.
Download The Sims 3 - The Complete Collection.rar
Extract The Sims 3 - The Complete Collection.rar to C:\Working (I use 7Zip)
Download Manual Patch from step 2 in http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Download Ultimae Fix from http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
Install Sims 3 Base Game
Install Manual Patch
Install my selected EP's and SP's , i don't install everything (makes game lag to much in catalog and CAS)
Install Ultimate Fix 
Play

Your screenshot looks like your file is trying to install from a temp folder which means you tried to install from directly inside the Rar.

Ah ok. That was exactly what I was doing wrong. I didn't drag the folders onto the desktop. I manage to install all the expansion packs except 4 of them. I will try that now. Thanks Carlos and BlackCipher Smile
