So, my new computer is Windows 8, which reportedly has compatibility issues with my Sims 2 of choice. That, and I’ve misplaced my copy of Bon Voyage, and I’m sulking because it’s one of my favourite expansions (up there with Seasons).
I am now going to give Sims 3 another go.
Now, the last time I played the Sims 3 was shortly after Ambitions was released, so it’s been a long time. I have little memory of the CC things, but I do remember this: it was a huge hassle to install and combine the files, and now I just don’t even remember what I’m doing or how I’m doing it. When googling for info, I just feel lost - there’s so much available it’s hard to sift through, and some of it’s really outdated. After all, this game has been around for years, and the community has thoroughly explored it at this point, I’m sure!
1. How do I install custom content, and minimise the resulting lag?
2. Are there any absolute must-haves - big mods and such?
3. Who are your recommended creators? I prefer things that fit into the game’s existing style.
4. Which expansions are most highly recommended and why? (Like how for Sims 2, I would always say you needed at least Nightlife and Seasons). I have Ambitions, World Adventures, and soon I will have Seasons.
Give it to me in basics, I’m a noob.
Thank you very much!
