Can i install more expansions after i've completed the original installation?

Post by diamondchurchst on 08/08/16, 06:30 am

this might be a really silly question, but - i've got ts3 base, ambitions, generations, pets, seasons, town life stuff, and diesel stuff installed, and have had them installed for about two weeks.  everything works fine on that end.  however, i realized last night that a lot of the content i thought came with ambitions actually comes with late night, and i've become more interested in supernatural lately as well; would i have to reinstall the ultimate fix if i decided to install those two EPs as well, or would i break my game if i tried to install things after the ultimate fix?

Just install expansion you want and apply Ultimate Fix. It won't break anything.
Fell free to ask more questions.

Sorry for the late reply,

Just wanted to add that if you wanted to add more expansions into your Sims 3 installation, it can be advantageous to re-apply the 1.67 manual patch first, and then re-apply the Ultimate fix. However, this is an optional step, and not obligatory. The thought behind it is that re-applying the 1.67 patch + Ultimate fix can help reducing bugs that can come up during the installation of new stuff.

If your computer is strong enough to run the game and if you have enough filespace, then I suggest you consider going forward and just install all TS3 packs. Smile
