Installing all Sims 3 Expansions + Stuff packs.[SOLVED]

Post by LYD1A on Mon 09 Apr 2012, 22:18

Hey everyone I'm installing everything thanks to you amazing people who allow me to download everything, it's awesome Smile
I have The Sims 3 and Late Night store bought already and I have 8 others downloading on uTorrent right now. I just wanted to know if it was normal for it to take a very long time, as they're not downloading very fast. Right now I'm getting between 7hrs and 5 weeks lol, and I'd say I started about 30 minutes ago and my best one is at 3.5 percent (High End Loft Stuff). Is downloading them all at the same time a bad idea? I was thinking of just leaving my laptop on for like a day or two.
Overall, I'm just asking is it normal for torrents to take about a day to download?

Edit: 5 are downloading, 3 are queued Smile

Hello,

That depends on your connection.
It took me just under 8 hours to download Showtime but some people could download it within an hour or so, depending on how fast your connection is.

Oh okay Smile It took me about 8 hours to download showtime too. The rest of the expansions are going at quite a slow speed haha, but pets downloaded for me this morning Smile
Thanks for the reassurance!

Hello,

Well, if you run into a download limit, it's bets to download them one by one.
The estimated times shown on uTorrent aren't accurate.

We'll keep this topic open for you, please let us know the final result. Good luck!

That's what we call "Microsoft minutes".

I downloaded all of them! Generations, Ambitions, and World Adventures were the last ones to download, which took about a day and a half. I have another problem now though, the World Adventures instructions said to patch before anything else and I'm pretty sure I just messed up a lot of things

Yes it is working Smile. It does crash sometimes just randomly, I notice the mouse go back to the regular pointer, not the sims 3 pointer haha and then it crashes. I do save it quite frequently because this has happened before I installed any of G4TW's Sims 3 expansions and stuff packs. But overall, it works great Smile

Hello,

Unfortunately crashes are common in The Sims 3. If it becomes unplayable, try these possible solutions.

Don’t hesitate to post if you have questions or problems again!
Happy simming The Sims Plumbob 1 topic closed.
