Question about Store Updates

Post by Raine15 on Wed 02 Jan 2013, 13:44

Hi,

I'm bright and shiny new to your website, and I have a question that's likely to be stupid. I've searched the forum, but I can't seem to find an answer. :S

I'm in the process of downloading the Sims and expansions from your website, and I'm wondering, do I also need to download the Store Updates as well in order for the content to work? If so, do I need to download all of them, or just the most recent one? I've read the "how to install sims correctly" and it doesn't mention it, hence the potentially stupid question. But I wanted to check just in case.

Thank you,

Raine.

You can download what you want from the store stuff. And if you are talking about the Store fix just the most recent one.

Store update is something your launcher will prompt you to download and yes, you should download it. As for store content, they can be found on our media fire account here and they are just extra objects for your game (most of them are cool). If you indeed choose to use store objects in your game, you should also download the Store Fixes, also found in our Media Fire account.

Hello,

Actually, the patch for store content that you get prompted about on the launcher may be ignored. It serves no purpose, since it will not recognize the sims store items as such since they have been decrapified, and the patch is for encrypted sims3packs.
On another note, you don't have to download or install any of the Sims 3 stuff in release order. That goes for the expansions/stuffpacks as well. You can install all of it in any order you want.

Hi there,

But that pop-up can be pretty annoying, so there's no harm in clicking "Yes", to let it go away.
