That sounds good, I'm looking forward to reading the result.

Yes. The game seems to be working now. Thanks to Lady ElDi and Admin for helping me. It's all thanks to you both that my game can work successfully. Now then, time to download and install the other expansion packs.

By the way, Lady ElDi or Admin, could you please post the steps here which I have to do when I finish downloading and would like to install the other expansion packs (e.g Ambitions/World Adventures)? Thank you very much.

Hello,
I'm glad to hear its working.
Installing more expansions is quite simple. You can simply extract them and install them in any order you like. Don't apply any cracks, unless you're installing Town Life Stuff or Pets, you'll have to reapply the crack from the fix.

I'm very glad too Smile

So it means other than Town Life Stuff and Pets:
1. Install.
2. Update (if any) without cracking.
3. Play.

And for Town Life Stuff and Pets:
1. Install
2. Update (if any) without cracking YET
3. After patching, transfer the 2 files from #Crack in Ultimate Fix to base game folder.

Is that right, Lady ElDi?

Okie, I just finished installing The Sims 3 World Adventures, and I'm glad to say that it's working, YAY~ Thanks to Lady ElDi and Admin for everything so far Smile

Currently downloading The Sims 3 Ambitions at 65kbps (41 seeds/45 peers). For the World Adventures, average download speed was 384kbps... You guys have any thoughts on why the speed is rather low? By the way, I have already forwarded my port and I'm using BitComet.

Hello,
Well what can I say my average dl speeds are between 50-100kb/s, if it ever gets above 300 I'm surprised. lol.
I depends on your own connection as well as the uploadspeeds of the people who are connected to you.
I'm seeding 12 torrents at the moment and my overal uploadspeed is 70kb/s so divided by 12, doesn't leave a whole lot per torrent. But I'm doing my part.

Yea sure. Thanks for helping seed, the thought counts too. Nevermind, just leave it to download for now Smile Btw, Lady ElDi, have you encountered the fishing bug in The Sims 3 (Patch 1.29), where you can't fish with bait?

Hello,
I haven't played much at all these past few weeks, due to the holidays and being a mother of 2, so I can't say that I have, sorry.

Hey, I don't use Mods or Custom Content... mainly because I don't know how to.

Hello,

Ok, sorry, then I don't know what to do either.
If it's a problem which is related to v1.29, then it's just a bug. In such case, I'm afraid you'll need to wait for a patch from EA.

For now, I hope you enjoy all the other features of the game!
