Sims 3 Complete Collection Instal help!

Post by Kaybee on Thu 25 Oct 2018, 03:34

Hello! Okay so problem is, I can download the base game, world adventures, and high end loft stuff. But anything past that it says I need the sims 3 base game installed. 

But I do. and I have it updated to the 1.67.2 version. I see no one else having this problem so I'm not sure what it is I'm doing wrong. If someone can help, It would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

What I would suggest is that you take a good uninstaller program, for example "Your Un-installer Pro", available here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t53-all-games4theworld-downloads

Download/install the program and open it. In the main window look for "The Sims 3", and double-click on it. Choose "Super Mode". Wait until it's finished, then re-boot the computer. Now re-install the base game of The Sims 3, then re-apply the 1.67 manual patch and proceed with the remaining DLC; or even see if anything changes at all compared to your previous situation.

Also, did you use WinRAR for extracting the contents of the .rar archive file? We generally recommend WinRAR for unpacking .rar archives, though 7-zip is said to be able to unpack .rar's too. But do not use any other programs than these, please. Good luck!  Smile

Thank you! I ended up doing the all in one pack and everything works great!

But I am noticing a pronlem with the speed. As in all settings of speed only move the original speed. Do you have any idea on how to fix it?? Im not a computer genius by any mean unfortunately lol but i can work my way around one decently enough. Is it because i have all the store content??

I'm sorry, can you try and be more specific with what exactly you mean by "speed"? Are you saying your game moves slowly, like in lagging?

You should use WinRAR (or 7-zip) to unpack .rar archive files. You can find WinRAR on the official G4TW Download list as well, see the link in my previous reply above.

OK, not sure about that. Are you using any (script) mods by chance? If so please remove all of them for now.

Also try deleting the cache files under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

- CASPartCache.package
- compositorcache.package
- scriptcache.package
- simCompositorCache.package
- socialCache.package
- the contents inside subfolder "WorldCaches" (do NOT delete the actual subfolder though; only delete the contents inside it)
- the contents inside subfolder "Thumbnails" (do NOT delete the actual subfolder though; only delete the contents inside it)

Google for the "4GB patch", and apply it to your TS3W.exe under C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4GB patch then.

Note that this will only work if you have a 64-bit Windows, plus at least 4GB of RAM on your computer. It that's the case, it will make your game use more RAM, which in turn can help improve general game performance.
