Installing add on packs. [SOLVED]

Post by MingLoi on Thu 17 Jan 2013, 12:14

Hi, I have installed and playing the sims 3 without any expansions installed. if i'd like to install the expansions, would my current created sims be deleted? can you provide me with instructions on how to install?

thanks.

Hello,

These instructions will tell you all you need to know, and if you have any questions, please ask.
Your save games will be fine. You will enter your town you've been using and your sims will be fine, they will just have additional options in life.

Hello there,

Haha, that's good news.
It's not a bad idea to back up your savegames from time to time though, just to be sure: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves

Anything else we can currently help you with?

hello it's working perfectly fine now. thank you so much for the help.

just one quick question, if i want to add on, say "pets", i'll just have to install and copy the files from the crack folder from your ultimate fix and it'll be okay?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Glad to hear it's all working fine now.

If you want to add more expansions, just install those expansions, but do not apply any "# Crack" folders. Test the game. If it works, don't fix what isn't broken. If it didn't work, re-do step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Good luck and please let us know if you need more assistance!
