I will no longer be watching the comments page after The Sims 4 launches on September 4, 2014.


There's lots of complaints across the interwebs about the inability to update The Sims 3, expansion packs, and stuff packs. It was tedious to hunt down numerous links everytime there was an update so I decided to throw this little time-saving gem together.

Hi im kind of new to mods and i downloaded the SIMS 3 with all expansion packs and stuff, but during the game play it crashes mainly on one of the EGYPT TOMBS. Used your crash log analyzer which told me to update my expansion packs. Downloaded your Patch Downloader , but whenever an update was begining to install i would get this error :
The setup has detected that no version of The Sims 3 World Adventures is insalled.
This update requires that a previous version be installed.
Could any one direct me on what to do Step by Step, would be extremely grateful.
Mine game is of worldwide region if that helps.

* Update* I reinstalled my disks and now the Superpatcher installs and three things, the base game, world adventures, and one other needed updating. The last installation had some notice to it, but still appears to have installed.

Thank you for putting this together - it's amazing and makes me wonder yet again why they can't do something like this at EA.

could you tell me step by step what you did thanxs

Patch Downloader has been updated for 1.69.43. That said, it looks like it's not very useful anymore, at least if you installed the game via Origin.

Hi - I have used the patch downloader on several occasions with no issues. However I just deleted and reinstalled and when I attempt to download and install the latest patch (167) I get a message saying the program could not detect what version of the game was installed and the patch installation fails.

Does anyone know why this is happening?
