Sims 3 Store Items question

Post by Amundela on Thu 24 Sep 2015, 08:08

Okay, I have a question that needs answering.
I have every single sims 3 game to date, all purchased through Origin but absolutely abhor the simpoints system and its ludicrous prices but I want basically every store item since when it opened.

I was thinking about just downloading the free sims 3 store items you have made available to us, such as Sunlit Tides, various other item sets, venues and what have you. But my question is, if I installed every single store item you all have available, would they appear in houses downloaded off the exchange when that house required that store item? Or even though I have the store item installed from your website and since it isn't off of the thesims3.com, the house/lot wouldn't recognize it and just replace it with a base/expansion/stuff game item in place of the store item I don't (technically don't, if it's just replacing it even though I downloaded the required, usually paid for item off your website) have?

They should work fine.

But I tried that about a year ago and it switched a couch to a base game couch even though I downloaded the necessary file off of games4theworld. That's why I'm asking if there is any definitive way to make it work, perhaps a step by step explanation?

Thank you yet again.

I don't know if there is. I know it has nothing to do with the items being pirated, problems like that occur even if you have the Store items legitimately.

EDIT: Well, apart from the obvious. Going into Build / Buy Mode and placing the objects yourself. If you make these changes and then save the house to library (deleting the original) it should work every time you place a copy afterwards.

In regards to your edit, I'm aware that I can make the changes myself but it seems a bit crippling to do it on a lot with heavy usage of store content.
