Store Update! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!

Post by Shah21 on Wed 11 Jul 2012, 20:42

Helo EVERYONE!

I was wondering if someone could explain to me how to update store items and also the free stuff you would have to actually pay for. AND... is there a file to get ALL items possible? If not, what are all the possible file updates?

I currently haven't downloaded any specific packages, because I do not know what to do with it. However, I want to really badly because I see how HAPPY all the members who have the packages are. I want to be a happy camper too Sad



THANK YOU!!!!!

there's a link in the download area that goes to mediafire where you can download each store update separately.

once you download them (unless they are package files) you have two options.

1. drag and drop into my documents/ea/ts3/downloads. start the ts3 launcher.install all your content.

2. double click the sims file and it should install it itself.

Is there a way to do so without the ts3 launcher?

Reason I ask is because I've heard a lot of people complaning how the items don't always show up when doing it with the launcher.

And thank you so much for helping me through this!

well... you can double click each file and that will take forever lol. (atleast to my knowledge)

i don't know of any other way. i use the launcher when i do mine. i set it to install go do something and come back like 20 or so min later. it doesn't take that long. its just the average time i give any installation.

your welcome.

Hello,

There are alternatives, look here.
Though try the launcher first. But if you want to install everything, double clicking each one individually is likely to take forever, literally! Just put them (sims3pack) in (my) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads and start the launcher. You can install everything by going to the downloads tab in your launcher, selecting all of them (a "select all" button is at the bottom in the middle of the launcher) and install.
Then go do something else while you wait.

//EDIT

Thank you all for your help. Lady ElDi, I have one question still.

Is there a file I can download to get all the items? Or do I have to download separate packages? I am unsure to all that is available for downloads.

Hello,

There's a file for each month, the 2009 and 2010 updates have a rar per month and in 2011, ea started with monthly sets, so if you got (for example) "sept2011set.sims3pack", you don't have to get any of the other sims3packs from that folder.

I've linked you to a number of alternatives for the launcher in my previous post Smile
