Current Versions

  • If you've come by this page via a link and would rather use Launcher to patch, click here to go back to the "parent" page. And a reminder when using Launcher: If the process is halted or interrupted, check that you're running the latest version of EADM (aka Origin).

  • See Common Errors for some suggestions to fix the most common error messages encountered. Or you can just choose to use the direct download method with the link(s) below.

  • Version.tag would show your true Base Game's gameversion - see Sims 3 Patch Table for actual current values in the "?" placeholders, ie
 [Version]
 LatestBase = 1.??.??.0??0xx 


(xx being your region code), which should match your Base Game's icon in Launcher when you hover over it and your skuversion.txt file. To verify the patch really did update your game and completes the full process, you can verify that all versions in these 3 different areas are identical:
  1. Version tag
  2. Launcher's BG icon
  3. BG's skuversion.txt (info.plist for Mac OS X)

  • Select one, either the Incremental or the SuperPatcher, not both!
    • Incrementals would only patch from the previous version stated and is Region-specific. Choosing an Incremental from the wrong Region or the wrong "_from_xx.xx.xx" file is how most "Invalid File" errors occur.
    • SuperPatcher is cumulative update and contain all fixes from 1.2 onwards. And anything goes, ie would work on any previous version, of any Region. If you're the type who reinstalls a lot, I'd recommend just downloading the SuperPatcher.
Warning.gif Read before proceeding!

Publishing the patch links below is by no means an endorsement that the updates are OK. Usual precautions apply, make backups, wait for mods to be updated, play on new user files while waiting for CC/mod updates and so on.

If you do decide to update, make sure you have made a BACKUP first! If you don't, some of your custom content may not work, which means your Saves won't load after you've saved with borked CC, at the next load time! You must also get updates from the creator(s) for any hacks/mods before playing an updated game, unless you are starting a game from scratch, ie new User files.


Warning.gif As recommended time and time again, make sure you have read TS3 Patching:Before You Begin so you know how to backup and what to backup.
