Better for to use Legitimate base or Complete edition?

Post by ZeonicScientist on Fri 14 Oct 2016, 05:38

Good Evening,

I am new to using torrents and the like, and I want to make sure that I can take the best precautions against EA finding out or something like that. I own only the base game, and I've found the site and downloads on chance. I saw the Sims 3 complete edition, so I wanted to ask this;

Should I download the expansions from here, follow the guide, and hook them up with my legit copy (Since I know that can be done), keeping offline in the Sims 3 launcher
OR
Should I uninstall everything EA related and just install the complete edition by itself?

I don't have any items from the store, I don't really care if I have to go through and find EA files, I just want to make sure which option is the most logical.

Thank you,
-ZeonicScientist

Hello and welcome to the forum first of all, @ZeonicScientist!


What I highlighted in the quote above. Smile  It is really better to stick with a 100% pirated version of The Sims 3. The main reason being, that due to latest developments (especially in the 'aftermath' of the 1.69 patch) a lot of people's games were messed up if they mixed legit Origin games with pirated ones. Another reason is a slightly improved overall gameplay-performance, due to the cracked executable.

In the past, people were able to mix legit + cracked games just fine, but nowadays I can't recommend it; though I don't want to rule out that in certain individual cases it still works. Nonetheless, I strongly advise to not use anything Origin-related alongside cracked games.

Good luck for now!
