Post by askilledpoet on Tue 27 Sep 2011, 00:26

Have all expansions and stuff packs... Recently installed all, used fix on this site and no luck.

Any proper way to install these in order or what?

Any and all help would be appreciated.

I read that, and if I read it correctly as long as I install one of those expansions it doesnt matter what order I install anything?

As far as I know you should install them in the order they were released.


"If you have experienced an issue that requires you to reinstall your copy of The Sims 3 and expansions, please be sure that you install your games in the following order to assure proper patching.

Note: new worlds like Riverview or Barnacle Bay can be added at any time since they do not change gameplay.
The Sims 3
The Sims 3: World Adventures
The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff
The Sims 3: Ambitions
The Sims 3: Fast Lane Stuff
The Sims 3: Late Night
The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff
The Sims 3: Generations
The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff

If game expansions are installed in this order, any patching related compatibility issues should be avoided."



I read this in EA Support

I did that last time, minus I did that stuff packs after the expansions. Who knows though, I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best this time around.

Sometimes files corrupt themselves during installation.
Many times I didn't have my game working and I reinstalled without downloading everything again and it magically worked o_o
Maybe it's a matter of lucky day or not ^^'

Well, good luck with that !

Hello,
Could you be more specific about the problem you're experiencing? Different problems require different solutions Very Happy.
As for the install order, it really doesn't matter as long as you've installed Generations or Town Life stuff first. In release order should work as well but its not required.
