Sims 3 help!

Post by jiae on Mon 13 Apr 2015, 04:03

Is there a way that I could save my sims game and all of the expansions to some sort of external device like a Usb or something?
Im asking because I have bad luck with laptops and yet again have to buy another after on 4/5 months of having my latest one.
So, i just want to know if theres a way for me to have all my sims games when i want to play them, but not always have them taking up space on my laptop when im not.
Also, could you recommend the best laptop to buy?

Hello,


You can copy the installers into an external hard-drive or an USB flashdrive, but you will still need to properly INSTALL the games on the other computer. 

As for the laptop thing, there is no such thing as a "best" laptop. Smile  But I can give you an indication: if you want to have a laptop that is ALSO suitable for gaming purposes, you can be sure that it will cost at least 900 USD, often even more (around 1000 USD or so).

OK, so would a USB flashdrive with 64 gb be ok to save all of my Sims stuff or should I get 128gb?

A 64GB USB Flash Drive is more than sufficient to store The Sims 3 base game and all its expansions. Hopefully this helps you.
