Awww, I can't wait that long....
Are you outside North America but want to try the social features NOW?
Just download the latest patchPatch_Download/Current
Well, SHT has been out long enough now that folks have had a good chance to muck about with it. The new simport feature seems very cool. But there are some things to bear in mind when using it!
Surprise surprise, when one of your friends sends you a sim via Simport, any CC on that sim will end up in your game permanently. Word is that EA are planning a patch to prevent this shortly, but until that arrives, here's an easy way to avoid getting stuck with any broken or unwanted CC:
Before receiving a sim via Simport, backup your DCCache folder! This contains all your installed sims3pack CC
After you've finished playing with the Simport sim, delete your DCCache folder and replace it with the backup. This gets rid of any sims3pack CC that might have piggy-backed along with the sim.
You may also want to delete the new files (which should have the same name as the sim) in SavedSims and Downloads, and, if you've sent a sim via SimPort, Exports.
Many thanks to the guys on N99 (registration required) for this info!
It's not listed in the MTS store! Will you get credit for it if I go to Amazon? I p-ordered this back in February but it has not shipped yet.... *sigh* typical...
We put direct links to the items in the store (see first post) - but yea, I was a bit late off the mark with this one. If you have already ordered then you can't also order from MTS unless you really want two copies.
But thank you for thinking of it and I will try to be a bit more organised for the next EP/SP.
hehe, I preordered it 3 hours before the Sixth and EA gave me a free stuff pack to go with it, talk about a deal, the sad thing is since I'm a hard copy person it doesn't come in the mail until the 10th
Riptide. Did they at least mail it yet? Amazon has not shipped mine yet and it's evening of the 7th. So much for pre-ordering and I ordered it back in January, not February! lol Oh well, they'll come out with the bug fix patch by the time it arrives. ... That's the plan you see...
...reminds self to take all mods and cc out and backup prior to installing. ...
Yep I got the email that they sent it at noon today (the 7th) It should come by Saturday or Monday (hopefully not, then I wont be able to touch it for an entire week). Great plan, I hope mine fits into the timeframe too
Has anyone got it yet? I'm in Europe so probably is not out, but I have some questions before I buy the game. Is Katy Perry edition worth it and what's the difference between the limited edition and the normal one? Oh and one more, does the Katy Perry edition have the features that limited edition has? I'm so confused. Why can't they put all the features into one game?
