LOL Ina! Well I just came across the info for this patch. There is a greeting cards system, new romantic social bonuses, diving boards are available now and swimming! Plus various other bug fixes and such. Guess I should of went onto the site and got myself updated but when I checked before starting this topic there was no info available. frustrated I heart spin the Sims and hate the sims all at the same time sometimes! too funny Guess I'm off to pull all my mods out again, then wait for creators to update their mods...again. When will it stop!!!!!!

Info is here: http://www.thesims3.com/community/news

I seem to recall when I tried to update it wouldn't work until I was signed on to my account at the Launcher.

Thanks Eden. I also saw that post and another one for a manual download from simsvip. I downloaded that one and updated my game. It started fine, but when I went to save I got that stupid error 18 or whatever, which meant my family saved as a .bad file. and my game wouldn't shut down. Geez of pete's, if it ain't one thing its another. haha

LOL! Smokey! I do that every time a new patch comes out! This is getting rediculous. I can't remember when a patch came out that I didn't have some sort of problem! hahaha.

Mama J.. Do you create a vanilla game when you update?? This should avoid any conflicts in MODS or CC installed.

I have no idea what a vanilla game is... too funny , but after I update I always do a test run with my game before putting any of my mods or CC back in. I don't put any sliders in as I have had problems with those with other patches and had to wait for them to be updated. And I always delete my cache files after updating.

A vanilla game is just a fresh CC free game to install updates. It keeps there from being any conflicts. Basically the same concept as my TUT on a testing game found HERE. You rename your original game to what ever and open the launcher, run the update and once its completed, delete the new The Sims 3 file to restore your original game and viola! Updated game with no hassle of removing MOD files or CC. Ever since I started to do this I've had little to no problems at all. I mean om on...we ALL have some problems LOL!!
Another big thing is to make sure Origin is up to date. Even if you don't use it to to start games. Sometimes a bad update here can cause problems. Uninstalling and doing a fresh install of this can fix a lot of issues. Good luck!!!!

Last update I did ..1.38?? I also updated origin, which caused the game (without any mods or cc) to fail at the launcher. It was the origin update that caused problems. I had created a restore point so I had to do a system restore, do the game update and ignore the origin one, now my game runs fine. But I have still not updated origin.
I get very nervous with patches.

Well, we all know EA and their "patches" they like to call them too funny are a "bit" wonky! I've had my entire game fixed when I did a fresh install of Origin....I guess it varies by system Very Happy
