Hi there! Smile

Unfortunately, due to the way Steam handles games, you can't install Expansion Packs downloaded from here to that base game. You'll need to uninstall that one, install the one from here and then install all of the EPs and SPs you want. Remember to restart your computer after you uninstall the game from Steam.

But you don't need to lose the families you already have. Just go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, and backup the Saves folder. After you install all of the ones from here, go to that same location and put the Saves folder back in there. This will allow you to keep all of the families you have. Wink

Good luck, and please let us know how it goes!

You're very welcome! Smile

So, is there anything else we can help you with? Are you going to install the game from here or keep the one you have?

I see then. As you opened the other topic, I'll close this one here.

Problem solved, topic closed.
