Do I have to install all expansion packs?

Post by marybe on Mon 01 Feb 2016, 06:14

First of all, thank you all for your amazing job! I would not be able to play the Sims 2 again if it weren't for you!

Now, before I download The Sims 3 (complete), I'd like to know if it's necessary to install ALL expansions in order for the game to run without many issues. 

Thank you in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forum @marybe !


Thanks for the compliments about The Sims 2 first of all. Smile  As for your main question, in theory you only need to install one (1) expansion or stuffpack, in order to be able to run the game. This is due to the way the "Ultimate fix" (crack file) for The Sims 3 works. See this little guide here too. And it doesn't matter which expansion or stuffpack you choose to install in that case.

Most people prefer installing everything; if you happen to have enough free filespace on your computer, and your computer is decent in terms of system specifications, then you could also consider just going for all expansions. But that's up to you.

Hope this helps - and good luck for now !
