Re: help/guidance to install expansions. [SOLVED]

ok i see now.
for example i downloaded ArcadeRegencyset.sims3pack,
so i need to put it like explained above:
"put them into Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Downloads then open
The Sims 3 up, go to the Download page, select the ones (probaby all)
that you want to install, and hit Install"

and then we will have all of the store items relevant to this extension in our game?


edit: ok, i did it for the "ArcadeRegencyset.sims3pack.' , now it's clear to me how to do it.



//EDIT

after installing one of the 'sims3pack' do i have to do something else to have it's items content in my game?
i'm asking because after opening the game and before start playing the is an icon named 'shop mode' and also 'open downloads dashboard' which asks for registration and serial code.
do i have to do anything with those to get the store items into the game?

Hello,

It's best to turn the in game store mode off. You can uncheck a box in the game options.

Hello,

I'm not sure we have those exact sets, we do have all the items though. Perhaps as individual items or in other sets.

ok.
one more thing- in the mediafire store updates , in each year there are separate lines/folders for 'complete month' and then others for 'store update 01' , 02,03 etc.
and inside the 'complete month' there are separate rars for each month.
if i'll download the 'complete month' files/rar., will it contain all that in the other one's?
so that way i can download and install only one file for each year/month?

Yeah, they Monthly Collections have each of the months's sets in the one download. So they'll have several of the .Sims3pack's in them, so can just install the ones you want.
