Sims 3 questions; New to torrent.

Post by sailormoron on Tue 21 Jun 2016, 21:04

1. Hello, so I checked out the link for must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly, but prior from visiting this forum, on PirateBay with Games4TheWorld, it says I need to download utorrent. Do I need to download that before downloading the Sims 3 base game to begin Step #1?
-- On that note, what else do I need to install before downloading the torrent? I already have WinRAR.

2. In addition, if I want to download the Sims 3 Ultimate Bundle on the website, do I need to follow the steps provided still? What steps do I have to take in order for the torrent to work for Sims 3 UC? My apologies for my lack of knowledge, this is new to me.

3. Do I need a VPN to install torrents? 
I have Windows 10, 6GB of RAM and Intel i3 processor.
After researching on your forum, I decided to completely uninstall my legit Sims 3 base game and University Life to start on a fresh, clean, slate. 
Do I need to uninstall Origin as well?

Do you recommend installing the Sims 3 Ultimate Bundle or picking it out instead?

Like I said, this is all new to me, so I apologize if I sound troublesome.
Please include step by step in depth explanation as well, thanks!

Hello, and welcome to forum,  Very Happy
best way is to uninstall all legal addons of The Sims 3 to avoid any further complications.
You must install torrent client like, Utorrent or Bitorrent. Then go HERE to download base game. Click "GET THIS TORRENT"and on upcoming pop up click to run program. Now, when torrent client is opened, if you want you can change directory of downloading. Wait for it to download 100% and now go to this website and pick at least one addon for The Sims 3. Download them as much as you want as long they're for The Sims 3.
Now when you downloaded base game and at leastone addon. You need to download WinRar from this link.

To install The Sims 3 you must follow this guide. When you download everything you need to extract it using WinRar. Create new folder and copy .rar file in it, then extract it. Example: create folder Base Game, copy .rar folder in it, right click on it and click"Extract here". Do this for all addons you downloaded. When this is done we need to go to next step.
You need to install Base Game. Open folder and open installing setup (click AutoRun.exe) and #InstallationGuide. When setup opens follow steps and when setup needs key, copy it from instalation guide. Just use instalation guide for keys, don't use #Crack folder.
Now when this step is done you need to update your game to latest version. To do that download manual patch from step #2. Install it. Now other addons.
Install other addons you downloaded same way as base game. You may skip all the "# Crack" folders. You DO NOT need to use any "# Crack" folders!
Now proceed to other steps. Download Ultimate Fix, apply it and play game. Those last steps are well described in guide, so I won't have to descibe it personally for you.
If you have any other questions feel free to post them.

Thank you! I'm downloading the Sims 3 now. I'll catch up with you if I have any concerns or errors.
OH. Also, do I have to download that WinRAR? I already have one, but it's expired. But usually I just exit the notif out. Does it still matter?

Hello,


You can click away the notifications from your expired WinRAR, or re-download it from Games4theworld. It's you choice. But if you're planning on torrenting more often in the future, have a look at our basics-guide here:
https://goo.gl/UImMBQ

P.S. a VPN is a service that "masks" your internet traffic, to make it more difficult to associate the traffic with a particular user. It is nowadays mostly used for torrenting, and by people who live in countries that don't take kindly to torrenting (such as the US or the UK). Keep in mind too that good VPNs which are suitable for masking torrenting activity cost some money too, and there are no free solutions that I know of.

Do you recommend getting a VPN then? I live in the United States. I would probably just download the Expansions and such all at once.
But if I do need a VPN, maybe I shouldn't download Sims 3 then, to avoid getting caught and such.

What Installation Setup? I don't see it, I only see the Installation thing for Generations(The EP I chosen) and The #InstallationGuide.

There's no autorun.exe, no setup.exe, just #InstallationGuide.

 Now that I think about it, it says it here: 
What do I do, now?

Hi there, @sailormoon! Very Happy

The process for the base game is a little different from the rest. You need to mount both those ISOs and then start the installation from the StartDisk. You can find a guide to mounting, if you need it, here:
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Mounting_Guide.pdf

You can also follow the Installation Guide that is inside the folder, ONLY for this base game, and ignoring the last step (with the Crack, you don't need to do any of that yet).

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!
