Having trouble installing all these sims 3 mods

Post by dudejake00 on Sat 02 Jan 2016, 08:50

Have a legit copy of sims 3 from origin
Downloaded the mods I wanted from here
Following the "Must read How To Install Sim 3 Correctly" guide I downloaded the 2 things linked in it (the manual patches)

Run TS3_1.67.2.0240xx_update as admin and get "This setup has determined no version of the sims 3 installed. this update requires that a previous version be installed.

Try to skip that and go into the downloaded mods, extract them and auto run but Im left with a "enter product code here" and after watching videos of people installing these mods they say the codes are in the pack but I can't find it.

Am I just using the wrong version of that manual patch since the guide was posted over 2 years ago?

ok...I found the codes..Im retarded..close this thread

edit: just a quick question though before you do, when it says select which packs you want to play as and you select all I assume all packs will load and you'll have mods galore? or can you only play with one at a time

Hello,

Welcome to the forum.
I assume you're talking about expansionpacks? I'm a little confused as to the message you're getting asking which packs you want to play. I've never heard of that. Can you show a screenshot?

the game runs like crap, no fix can solve the lag issues on a 2 grand computer. FPS indicator in game says its running at 60 fps but every 2 seconds it goes down to 10 fps. Wont be playing sims 3 anymore, maybe I'll try sims 4 but the graphics look so cartoony and there doesnt seem to be farming in the game or nectar making which is what I liked to do. Also the obvious problem is there doesnt seem to be many expansions for the sims 4 to download off here. Shame.

Hello and sorry to hear about all that,


The Sims 3 is known for not being a very "optimized" game, due to poor programming. All these lag/crash/poor performance issues are attributed by most people to hardware issues, when in fact, it is (really) for the most part just due to poor programming of the game, by EA or whoever they hire to do these things. You could have a 10,000 USD computer, and still run into issues with that game.

If you haven't seen them yet, there are these 2 threads, which you may want to look at (but I'm not sure if they can help in your case):

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4692-game-lag-possible-fixes
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21716-excessive-fps-rendering-in-the-sims-3-updated-on-16-12-2015



Also, about The Sims 4, it is still a "relatively new" game, and not much official content has been released yet by EA. Games4theworld's stuff on Sims 4 includes the base game as well as all commercially available DLC, until the "Get together"-expansion pack.
