  1. Before patch 1.69 if you had multiple users on the same pc, don't laugh shared pc's still happen, all users were able to play s2/s3 but now with patch 1.69 other users may no longer access and play sims 3 or any game tied to the origin launcher unless they have their own origin account (and I'm not even sure if that will work, it's to be tested).

Release notes[editedit source]

Today we will be releasing an update for PC Windows version of The Sims 3 launcher to add the new Expansion and Stuff Pack Manager. During preparation for the release we have discovered that this update is not compatible with the current version of the Create-a-World (CAW) tool. We are working on an update for this particular issue and will notify you as soon as we have one.

Notable changes[editedit source]

  • Starting The Sims 3 requires starting up and signing in to Origin similar to The Sims Medieval and The Sims 4.
  • The Sims 3 Launcher can no longer be bypassed.
  • SecuROM activation limits have been removed for Origin releases.
  • As of January 11, 2016, 1.69 must be installed in order to download any Expansion Packs or Stuff Packs from Origin meaning any non-1.69 installations of The Sims 3 (mainly DVD base games) will not be able to use other Sims 3 games downloaded from Origin.
  • It is impossible to avoid 1.69 with the Origin release of The Sims 3 since any download of The Sims 3 after November 12, 2015 will have 1.69 installed. It is possible to use 1.67 or earlier by using a DVD version of The Sims 3 and not allowing Origin to update The Sims 3.
  • DVD versions of The Sims 3 are also eligible for 1.69 but the option to update to 1.69 is only available to Windows users who have The Sims 3 in their Origin library.
  • The Origin version changes the file directories for Sims 3 and no longer installs .exe for each EP/SP as the previous game patches did. If you manually re-patch down to 1.67 using superpatcher, you will lose access to any Origin EP/SP content in game (it will not show as installed in the launcher because the game cannot find the .exe file. DVD installation is unaffected by this as they install the .exe normally).

Glitches[editedit source]

  • A new world, titled Adventureland, was added to the game erroneously with this patch. The world is based on the Sunset Valley world with only two Sims living in it, and was used during the development of World Adventures. The world can be removed by uninstalling World Adventures.

Installing[editedit source]

Before installing an update for The Sims 3, an Expansion Pack, or a Stuff Pack, it is a good idea to run through the following checklist to ensure your game continues to work smoothly.

If you have any questions about the below steps, please visit the Technical Support forum on the official Sims 3 community found at this URL: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/forums/show/10.page

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:

  • On Windows XP: C:Documents and SettingsUSERMy DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3
  • On Windows Vista/7/8: C:UsersUSERDocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3
  • On Mac: ~/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:

  • On Windows XP: C:Documents and SettingsUSERMy DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3Saves
  • On Windows Vista/7/8: C:UsersUSERDocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 3Saves
  • On Mac: ~/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.

Update 01/05/2016

Today we get yet another small patch. It’s to make sure CAW is working again. This update has also stripped the download versions of the EPs/SPs of SecuRom. This means that you will need to update to 1.69, should you want to install the EPs through Origin.

If you want to stay at 1.67, you need the pre-Sept 2002 disc version and all expansions on disc.

If you update to 1.69, please update your game again and use the 1.69 version of CAW posted her: CAW

If you decided to stay at 1.67, you don’t need to do anything. Do NOT download this new CAW version or it could mess up your worlds.

Please also see more information in this thread: Update to Sims 3 + CAW.

EA/Maxis has updated the tool page and both versions are available to download. Make sure you download the right one.

The whole purpose of this patch is to make the game more compatible with Origin and to add a new feature: Expansion and Stuff Pack Manager. There are no changes to the game code itself.

This patch is offered through Origin and not the launcher so if you don’t have Origin, it won’t be offered to you. It’s also not for Mac and not for the Steam Version.

If you don’t want to update, make sure to turn off automatic updates in Origin. This patch is optional and it’s your choice if you want to install it or not. There are consequences for the download version which I have described in the other post linked above.

Please take the necessary precautions before patching anyways: What to do before patching.

There are no patch notes

All core mods need updating because of the version number change. Core mods will throw an Unofficial Game Modification error but the message can be bypassed.

ErrorTrap is in testing.

There are no other changes to the code hence all other mods will continue to function properly.

There are no manual links for this patch. If you don’t want to update to 1.69 make sure you keep a copy of the 1.67 super patch for safe-keeping.

CAW currently has an issue and doesn’t work with this patch level. Because of the new Origin-tie-in it’s possible that EIG will stop working altogether like it does for the newer base game versions.

CAW has been update. See above. I do not know yet what the take on EIG is.
