Sims 3 Store Guide?

Post by Golden_Apple on Sun 25 Dec 2011, 15:31

Hi all, I'm very new to Sims 3 and wondering what steps do I take to make the sims 3 store work. I'm not sure where to begin so any help is welcomed. I currently have The Sims 3 and The Sims 3 Pets expansion installed.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
You can get all the items from this link. You could download items individually, the 2011 store has set downloads available though, which will save you a lot of work.
Anyway, copy the files you downloaded to C:\Documents and Settings\YourPC\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads,
now open the launcher, you should see a ! at the downloads tab, click the downloadstab and there you'll see all the files you just copied to the above mentioned folder.
I'd recommend checking the box at "select all", then click "install" and the launcher will start installing your new stuff. After its finished, your new content can be found in game.

Hello,
Make sure to have a look at the recently added "store update complete set per month" downloadlinks, they'll save you a lot of work.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

OH, the text file? I just read it. It has the store updates for 2009 the complete set. Should I get all those?

Hello,
Getting the rar files from the links in that text file is going to save you a lot of work if you want to have all the items, the 2009 store has a lot of items and you'd have to download them one by one. With these rar files, you can get them much quicker.

Hey!
I have a problem installing the packages from the store updates. I followed the instructions, I tried everything, but the installer keep saying: There are no packages to install! What should I do?
Thank you!
