When you uninstall an expansion...

Does it have a negative effect on your save? No corruption or anything like that?

If you are playing in the world that is included in that expansion you will not be able to load it. If not, objects from that expansion will be replaced with others.
From what I know, this is all it can happen.

Okay cool, i just gotta be careful when im on expansion worlds I guess. On that point I do have a couple questions.

1. Can you cancel certain aspects of an expansion? I like to play realistically so i dont wanna see vampires, ghouls, etc. Not even neighbors like that. Can I enjoy the expansion without specific details of it?

2. Seeing as how I get university life obhects while not at the uni and get an option to turn regular residential lots into apartments in sunset valley...does the same principle apply with something like the delicious indulgent bakery or any other dlc like late night? As in, accessing its contents while not being in its thematic world? I dont see it in my "Complete Sims 3" download so maybe it was bundled with another expansion?

If you have The Sims 3 Supernatural installed, you can disable almost all supernatural sims from the game settings. For the fool moon zombies you will need to set a single lunar phase (other than fool moon), and for the unicorn (it comes with Pets I believe) you may need a mod.
Deliciously Indulgent Bakery is Custom Content from the Store.

Great advice! Yes, you can use that to disable zombies I think, and to convert the other supernatural creatures into regular sims. Not sure about unicorns but, to be honest, I had never seen them, I believe you need to "search for them" in order to spot one, and they are just horses with a single horn in the middle of the forehead anyway, nothing THAT crazy Wink

I usually played with witches and vampires only. Celebrity system always on (yay!). Fairies look funny with those wings, and werewolves and zombies are also very supernatural looking, so I always liked to turn mine off, but vampires and witches are more discreet, so it felt ok for me.

I also tend to turn off that random pet and animals generator to make the game run lighter, since it feels a bit heavier once you start to get a heavy animal population. It won't disable your ability to adopt a pet for yourself or family Smile

Thats great. I liked the pets EP before I heard more about it. By minimizing their spawns I may actually install it. Besides nothing lost since most EPS usually add a little extra anyway.
