Sims 3 Collection Torrent: Offline? [SOLVED]

Post by Maue on Sun 26 Jul 2015, 06:27

Hey there, I'm new to this site so maybe I'm just doing something wrong but... I've visited to both

games4theworld.org/downloads
and
Censored

in an attempt to download all of the Sims 3 content, yet it's just not downloading. This isn't a problem with running the game, I'm physically unable to do Step 1: Download the .Rar


I have uTorrent. I save the .torrent file (just in case) and start to download the .rar. And then it just sits there forever trying to find peers, with a download/upload speed of 0.0kB/s.


I've sat here for 30 minutes, and restarted the download a couple times just in case of a bad connection. Am I at the right sites? Are these downloads even active anymore?

If I'm in the wrong area could you please point me in the right direction? Oh my...

Thanks bunches!

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Please try configuring your torrent client according to this guide here, and then see if the download starts:

Good luck ! P.S. please do not post direct links to Piratebay or any other torrent sites, as the forum host doesn't like these things (and is very picky on them); I censored said link in your message. Wink

Thanks for the quick reply and sorry about the direct link! Wont happen again!

Generally when I use uTorrent the "Availability" bar is green, but its been solid red every time I try to start up this download (As seen in the previous attached screenshot). And I'm not convinced its actually a speed issue at all, I had left it running since my previous post just in case I was jumping the gun and it was taking a while to start up, yet even three hours later there was still no change.

I changed all my settings to match those in the link provided and started trying to download from scratch again, but it hasn't made a difference. Still stuck forever searching for peers with 0.0kB/s. Sad



EDIT!!: Tried using BitTorrent instead of uTorrent and it works like a charm! The problems on my end, sorry for wasting your time <_>"

Hello there,

That's weird! Glad it's fixed now though.
The instructions from the topic that Carlos linked to should also work on BitTorrent, so they are worth applying.
Happy downloading and don't hesitate to open a new topic if you run into any issues during the installation. Smile
