Default Showtime is out! Read this before Simporting. ;)
Lights...Camera...Action!! SHOWTIME

6 March is release day (well, for none-Europe at least - Europe has to wait until 9th March)





Yay - another EP. But first - before you install, we would like to remind you to prepare your modded game for the new EP.

Follow this handy guide Game_Help:TS3_Preparing_for_the_Next_Patch_Expansionwiki



Not bought it yet? If you have not yet bought/pre-ordered the Showtime EP please consider buying the EP through our Amazon link - it's an easy way to help MTS stay on line.

MTS Amazon Store

The Sims 3: Showtime - Katy Perry Collector's Edition


The Sims 3: Showtime - Limited Edition

The Sims 3: Showtime - Limited Edition - AMAZON UK

The Sims 3: Showtime - Katy Perry Collector's Edition - AMAZON UK

Awww, I can't wait that long....
Are you outside North America but want to try the social features NOW?
Just download the latest patch Patch_Download/Current


New Info!
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!

I wrote this up earlier today and as usual there was a general wild flail at the concept of timezones. So I posted it - it will be the 6th somewhere. Right?

/me hopes so

It's all an EA plot to confuse me. At first it was the 8th then it was the 9th and then some regions were the 6th...

I just want the pool table. Jeez.

I'm finally starting to get a little excited about it.
Also, I had no idea MTS had an Amazon store!! When I finally get Master Suite Stuff I'll go there to buy it.

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

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

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?

The Katy Perry edition comes with a Katy Perry poster and about three extra dresses. You can burn the poster but you're stuck with the dresses, so I suggest not buying it.
