Installing Newest Sims 3 Content

Post by IDunc on Thu 28 Jun 2012, 01:25

I have all of the following expansions installed:

Ambitions
Fast Lane Stuff
Generations
High End Loft Stuff
Late Night
Outdoor Living Stuff
World Adventures

I am looking to install the following:

Master Suite Stuff
Katy Perry Sweat Treats
Pets
Showtime
Town Life Stuff

Obviously I have been absent from the Sims 3 scene lately. How should I go about installing the above expansions? I ask here first so I don't mess up and have to redownload and reinstall EVERYTHING.

Also, I have forgotten how to add store updates, limited edition content, and neighborhoods to my game. Can anyone refresh my memory?

//EDIT

Silly me. http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly This post is amazing. Thanks G4TW!

Hello,

As for adding store/custom content:
Sims3packs go in the "downloads" folder in (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and are installed with the launcher.
Packages go in the "mods\packages" folder in (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

So I can just use the launcher to do all the store updates? What about limited edition stuff? Is that considered a package? And neighborhoods are loaded through the Launcher too right?

//EDIT

I figured it all out, thanks to the easy-to-use Mediafire page. Let's hope I install all the store updates correctly xD

Thanks for the very handy information!

//EDIT

Holy cow is there an easier way to download the store updates from 26 to
the most recent? I seriously have to download one file at a time? I
guess I have some work to do if that's the case :S

Admin edit: Please do not double-post, but use the "Edit" button on your post instead. Thank you!
