Is it possible to remove certain EPs/SPs from the Sims 3 Complete Collection?

Post by Panzram on Sun 10 Jun 2018, 18:36

Good morning.


I was wondering if removing unwanted stuff packs or expansion packs from the TS3 Complete Collection Repack was possible. I downloaded it thinking it was less troublesome than downloading each individual EP/SP plus the game. I couldn't find any info and if there is, forgive me for not being able to find it.

Why is the repack troublesome in your case?

As for the original question, I am not using this thing. Mostly - and unlike pretty much all other "normal" people on here - because I find the mere idea of waiting ages for these compressed installers to complete...not really worth the time. Even if in this case the installer is good and safe to use, I am not a fan of them. My suspicion is, you cannot safely remove individual components though. It is really meant to be used as a whole.

If you wanted to only play with certain expansions/stuffpacks, you will need to remove this repack. And then go for the older "The Sims 3 - The Complete Collection", that is about 27GB in size. This one contains installers for the base game and individual DLCs.

I don't know what I was really think, it would've been better if I downloaded the EP/SPs I wanted. I kinda regret it now lol. I figured it wasn't possible as I tried to remove the packs but the game wouldn't launch unless those packs were in.

Anyway, I will uninstall the pack and just download the packs I'd like but I am a little nervous as I got a notification from AT&T last night that I infringed copyright. Any way around that? I hear that repeated offenses get the internet cut off.

You could invest in a suitable VPN service, see e.g. the suggestions in the topic here:
https://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t32958-best-vpn-services

Otherwise, it will depend on how often you torrent, and what kind of stuff you download. Is it just Sims games? If so, you could use the ZLOrigin method. As for G4TW and future releases, if it's not too big in terms of filesize, we will be trying to provide at least one direct download link as well. But our experiences with direct downloads tend to not be good - the links get reported frequently, and taken down.

Okay, I'll check out some VPN services. I am a little new to VPNs so I guess today's the day I learn more about them. 

I rarely download torrents and if I do, it's just the Sims games from this site. I don't download from any other sites or any other kind of media.
