Post by ladybadone on Sat 30 Dec 2017, 16:30

I just started playing Sims3 and 4. I have read the instructions about how to add the files ect but I am still a bit confused. 
I have dled the expansion pack files but really am not sure how to add them to origin.
Thanks for any help.  All Hail Carlos!

Welcome to the Forum @ladybadone and sorry for the belated reply,


You cannot add cracked expansions to your Origin library of games, if that is what you wanted to ask. 

As for the installation of the individual expansion packs and stuffpacks, you must extract each EP/SP into a separate folder, and use the program WinRAR for extraction. Then you run the installation (of each individual EP/SP), from the corresponding folders, a.k.a. the folders where you extracted to.

In general, those torrents are meant to be used with a pirated base game of The Sims 3 as well. In the past it used to work with Origin basegames as well, but nowadays there seem to be problems. I'd recommend you use a pirated basegame.

Good luck!

Why would you want to have Origin anyhow (unless you had paid games that require it)? Smile

Also, don't forget to use only one (1) folder to extract each EP/SP. So one folder for Island Paradise, another folder for Generations, and another folder for Town Life Stuff, etc.
