There is a new patch that brings the game version to 1.22 (base game) for Windows. For MAC and only for MAC are available some additional patches: 2.16 (World Adventures) / 3.12 (Loft Stuff) / 4.9 (Ambitions) / 5.7 (Fast Lane Stuff) / 6.4 (Late Night) / 7.2 (only Outdoor Living). This is come out together with the release of The Sims 3 Generation in USA.
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. We also suggest to check if your EADM version is updated before download patches. Full details on EA site HERE.

Additional bug fixes and polish to existing features

Before installing this patch:

Step 0: check if your EADM version is the latest (actually 7.2). If not, please update it by using the auto-update or download the latest version HERE.

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.

Known issues:

If you get some errors while upgrade your game, and after them you get an empty lancher with a game version 0.0.0.0, it is highly recommended to follow these steps.
  • Uninstall EA Download Manager
  • Reboot your machine
  • Obtain the latest available version here
  • Open EA Download Manager to ensure that the Download Manager is fully up to date
  • Open The Sims 3 Launcher

At this point the Launcher should prompt you that there is another available update and all products will be properly in sync. If this doesn't work, we suggest you to use this tool: The Sims 3 Patch Downloader

If you have some EP or SP installed, you'll experience a multiple update. 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 base game and one for EP.
