There's lots of complaints across the interwebs about the inability to update The Sims 3, expansion packs, and stuff packs. It was tedious to hunt down numerous links everytime there was an update so I decided to throw this little time-saving gem together.

Further information and a link to download is at Mod the Sims.

Used this earlier today, well yesterday now, but it is the answer to a lot of headaches.

For quite some time I was left with an un-update-able SIM3, which isnt so bad, but due to some bug with the EA downloader, I couldnt run the expansions or even get the original game up to date.

This did exactly all that, and wen off without a hitch.

1.1.0 is available which adds an "Automatic Install" option as well as automatically opening the save directory when the path is double-clicked.


Note: Automatic install does work (it runs the installers silently) but I couldn't verify if it actually installs the updates because my version is already current. If someone could verify that the installs are being committed, that would be great.

You can tell if the install worked by closing the application and starting it again. The update should not appear in the lower list.

Heh, good luck finding the Death plant. Oh, and don't plant it because it just dies. XD


Edit: Doh! It's death fish, not death flower. Death flower is only useful to keep the grim reaper away a little longer.

Greetings,

Thanks again for all the work on this subject. The Automatic install does indeed work and the installs are being committed. Once started, the "status" column will go from, "installing" to "installed". Rerunning the program will show the updated version numbers.

In short what I did, was installed HELs on a fully updated Base and WA game, then ran the Patch Downloader. Good to go after that.

Awsome, works as advertised. When I run it silent like that, all I can see is the installer is running in the task manager. I can't tell if it is doing anything. Nice to know that it is. :D

Heh, I couldn't find the thread because it was stickied. XD


1.3.2 uploaded. You can now double-click on the "Detected Products" list to copy the table to your clipboard to be pasted elsewhere (great for assisting in debugging). It will also now be able to handle the odd 107 SKU by properly converting it to 017.


NOTE: I just realized that there's holes in the patching where you must perform incremental updating before the patch becomes available to reach the current version. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for this but it likely to be addressed at some point.

1.4.0 uploaded. It now supports incremental updating and you can now right-click on Detected Products for several options for copying it to the clipbloard.

It will now work for those with base game versions:
1.2.7
1.3.24
1.4.6
1.6.6
1.7.9
1.8.25

And World Adventures versions:
2.2.8
2.3.33

Again, if something doesn't work right (like it says "Unavailable"), copy the Detected Programs table (by right-clicking on it) and paste it here. I will get it fixed server-side ASAP.

Yes, my account was suspend 72 hours and this is coming straight from EA Customer Service. Patching is apparently part of their anti-piracy scheme (one that would never work) and that's what my application specializes in. Rules is rules so no discussion about it at EA.

Ironic how they provide direct links to manual patches in the forums and there is zero protection on the downloads themselves...

I take it they just want to waste customer's time digging for the patch that actually works and make sure those that have problems never come back for more. Their loss.

Seriously Ford, my girl swore off EA and was just short of getting someone on the phone so she could "vent" to them;)

If anything, your little application will return a lot of love to the SIMS for EA....I say you make a deal and sell them your version:D
