How to install Sims 3 base game ONLY. [SOLVED]

Post by denisseerika on Tue 04 Dec 2012, 10:46

Hello, How do I install the Sims 3 Base game only and update the patch to 1.42?

I successfully installed the sims 3 base game and I want to install mods and packages so I need to update the patch
but problem is when I update the patch, the game continuously asks me for a serial code.

Please help, thanks

Hello,

That's because the crack requires at least one of the following expansions: Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations.
The only thing you could try if you really don't want to use an expansion, is the temporary fix, which has an alternative to the crack, a no-cd mod. But you should know that it doesn't seem to work for everyone, and has to be removed should you decide to use a crack later on.

Hello,

Try a stuff pack in stead of a large pack like Pets. Town life, Master Suite, Diesel and Katy Perry stuff only add objects and some minor features and should have no impact on your game performance. If they do, it's unlikely you'll be able to get much out of your cc.
Those packs will allow you to use the crack from the fix.

Having said that, my pc is rather old and barely meets the system requirements but I can still use 5 expansionpacks, some mods and some cc and play the game reasonably.
