Patch 1.12/2.7/3.3 PDF Print
Written by CriCri Tuesday, 01 June 2010 19:32
A new patch is out and it brings the game version to 1.12 (base game) / 2.7 (World Adventures)/ 3.3 (Loft Stuff).
To install this update, please launch the game and click on the “Updates” button in your Launcher.
We suggest to use the auto-update with the EADM, because in this way you are sure to download the right version for your game. If you update your game everytime a new patch is available, then the EADM will download a reduced version of the new patch. Otherwise, you'll get a full version.


This game update includes:

  • This game update enables dynamic ad serving capabilities in The Sims 3. However, there are no immediate plans to activate any content of this kind. The Sims 3 EULA has further details. See http://www.ea.com/1/product-eulas.
  • Lights placed on residential and community lots will now properly display onto the neighborhood
  • Sims may now walk and stand on bridges
  • Players who play The Sims 3 with game modifications can now create a folder in which to place their game modifications. The folder should be located here:

C:Documents and SettingsYourComputerMy DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3Mods

  • When Mods are placed in the official Mod folder, a notification will appear to remind players that Mods are installed.
  • Placing Mod packages into the Mod folder is an officially sanctioned way to bypass assembly signing verification. The Resource.cfg file must be placed in this folder in order for the modifications to work correctly.
  • When Mods are installed that are incompatible, the player will receive a message notifying them of the error.
  • Additional bug fixes to existing features

Edit Town Mode

  • Players may now add, delete, and move residential and community lots from the Edit Town menu
  • Players may now add, delete, and move neighborhood decorative objects from the Edit Town menu
  • Players may now purchase and upgrade neighborhood community lots using the new Real Estate system via the Computer
  • When using the Library in Edit Town, lots will now display their venue type (i.e. Park)

Gameplay Changes

  • Story Progression has been improved to prevent Sims required to complete Opportunities from changing.
  • Sim genetics have been improved so that children now better reflect their parents’ skin tone and hairstyles.
  • Sims can unlock outfit choices and share them with household members when using the “Plan Outfit” interaction on the Dresser.

Build/Buy Mode

  • Players may now use Create a Style on Ceilings or add and delete them when in Build Mode
  • Players may now use Create a Style on the edges of floor tiles
  • When placing walls, rooms, foundations/decks, floor tiles, roofs, pools, fences, and basements the measuring tape tool will display to aid in more precise building.
  • Wall Covering sets can now be found in a tab in Build Mode
  • Players may now manipulate the roof pitch for individual roof sections when in Build Mode
  • Sculptures can be found in a new Sculpture sorting category when in Buy Mode

Create a Sim

  • Players may now use the Tattoo feature to customize Sims when in Create a Sim
  • Players may now select the FiancĂ©, Girlfriend, and Boyfriend relationship settings when in Create a Sim

UI & Controls

  • The user-interfaces for Sim View and Map View have been merged to provide more control and consistency between the two modes.
  • The Opportunity interface has been improved to clearly outline the fiction, gameplay objectives, rewards, and Opportunity location for all Opportunities and Adventures.

World Adventures

  • Certain Adventures and Opportunities will properly display in the Opportunities Panel when traveling between worlds

Before installing this patch:

Step 1: Disable Custom Content

Custom Content is all Sims content that did not come from an official The Sims 3 Update, The Sims 3 Store, Expansion Pack, or Stuff Pack. Custom Content is created by 3rd Party Developers that are not regulated by Electronic Arts or The Sims 3 Development Team and may not work with new updates. Custom Content may cause the game to behave unexpectedly or not function entirely.

To disable your custom content, undo whatever you did to install this content to get your game back into an unmodified state. If you placed it in a Sims 3 directory folder, move it to a new folder that is outside your Sims 3 file directory. Your Sims 3 file directory can be found using the paths listed below:

Windows File Directory: C:Documents and SettingsUSERMy DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3

Mac File Directory: User/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims/

Once you have installed the official update you may re-enable your custom content. If you experience problems, disable it again until the 3rd party developer updates their content to work with the official Update, Expansion Pack, or Stuff Pack.

Step 2: Back Up your Save Files

It’s always a good precaution to back up your save files before installing an Expansion Pack, Update, or Stuff Pack. To do this, copy the “.sims3” folders found in the Saves folder onto your desktop or another file directory.

Your Sims 3 Saves folder can be found using the paths listed below:

Windows File Directory: C:Documents and SettingsUSERMy DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3Saves

Mac File Directory: User/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims/Saves

After the Update is installed, run the game to verify your saves still function correctly.

Step 3: Let the Update Complete Entirely

Updates can sometimes be rather large and may take a while to download and install completely. Cancelling the update before it has completed may cause unexpected problems, so it is always best to let it finish entirely. Do not close the Launcher until you have confirmed the update is completely installed, as this will cancel the update.

If you have World Adventures and/or Loft Stuff, you'll experience a double/triple update: one is for the base game, one for World Adventures and the other for Loft Stuff. Once you choose to download the new patch, let your computer work! Do not try to quit the process if it looks like it's taking too much time! When the download ends, the installation starts. It may look like the game is off and the update is done, instead, it's going on. Once the installation is completed, you'll get a message stating the process is completed. Wait for this. You'll get one for the 1.12 version, one for the 2.7 and the other for the 3.3
