Default The Sims 3 Game Update 1.18/2.13/3.9/4.6/5.4/6.1
On the official Sims 3 blog is news of a new game update to 1.18/2.13/3.9/4.6/5.4/6.1. There are a whole heap of changes, so please see the second post in this thread more more information!

Some of the more interesting changes are:

- Routing problems which caused the game to hitch has been fixed (possibly a similar fix to this can be found here: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=425764)
- Fixed an issue that causes the game to try to place Ambitions specific lots in Bridgeport, thus causing the game to crash (aka grey lots).
- Wall tops are no longer invisible when building on an empty lot on PCs with ATI video cards

One thing that seems to be missing is the Vampire skill bug and the bug when Sims get opportunities not within the same town.

Story books are full of fairy tales, of Kings and Queens, and the bluest skies.
2 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

And yet, no vampire skilling bug fix? Pah!

No fix to the camera in high-rises?

No fix to going allllll the way downstairs to eat yer food if you live in a high-rise and don't have a table (but do have somewhere else appropriate to sit)?

No fix to sims congregating in massive groups for no apparent reason?

Seems like they fixed a buttload of little bugs, but most of the big ones (with the exception of the invalid opportunity places thing and the wall thing with ATI cards) seem to have gotten left out.

Haha this gave me a good laugh. There are some pretty funny ones!
"Sims will no longer receive a wish to “Skinny Dip” with Mummies."
"Pianists will no longer continue playing pianos that have been detonated."
"Baby Sims will no longer answer a call from the Callbox and invite Sims in."
"Sims can no longer WooHoo in the Elevator with a Sim who is on a different floor."
"Interacting with the Butler will now satisfy a Toddler’s Fun motive."

I see some good fixes (most of them were fixed by the community!)

ALL mods needs to be updated? Or only the tuning mods?

I'm just glad they updated the "playing for tips in the subway" glitch. The funny thing is I was just yesterday messing around with files seeing if I could fix this lol >.<

Any mirrors for the updates, my program always only seems to update my base and most recent expansion while missing the others.
Still looking over all these tweaks and how they will mess with mods

What about fixing the massive amount of derelict cars that appear on the streets, in sims inventories, and on community lots? I couldn't care less about mummies not having a soaked moodlet in the hot tub, what about all the lag in my game?


EDIT: I just patched, and my game no longer has lag with a new cc free game. I played for 2 1/2 hours with no skipping or stuttering at all. Everyone likes to read in the clean game though. People stand and read in front of the movie theater, my sim always wants to read something, and her lover even brings books with her when she visits. Weird.

Thank you Naiyasfury for your suggestion. I will definitely get it if my CC causes the game to lag again.

Oh thanks much, Tummy Tickler, I hope it works for my version


Got everything running smooth, too bad now it all messes with the Extended Core Modifier, but we are moving forward slowly.

All other mods seemed to be working just fine, more testing needed obviously.

Tickle on the tum, why are there so many? Does downloading the one through the launcher do the same thing as all of those?

You'll need to talk to EA about digital download issues, missie2020.

missroxor, each one is for a different region (in most cases physical. region 1, or direct download, region 17). You don't technically need to patch anything but your basegame and your latest EP... I still don't trust that theory much though.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Now that would be a useful fix! That bug has broken two games so far. I guess I will just keep building and hope the next patch addresses this issue.

First, thanks to the Mods and everyone here for helping get through this mess and make the game sort of playable.

Now the warning....
Okay, before the patch my game ran fairly smoothly but suffered all the other well documented problems.
Now, since this patch, it is totally impossible to play and freezes every few seconds. So I can't even be bothered to see if the Bartenders are back at work yet!
This is just another reminder to you all that even if you checked the compatability of core mods before patching, as I thought I had done.... still run through all the checks again with a clean setup.

I will try again... and maybe eventually get some uninterrupted gameplay!

Kittenette069, people always stood around reading in front of the theatre, it is not you.

After installing this, I get strange issues with all the sims in the town flocking to the diner and repeatedly getting drinks. I'm running the game without mods.

Today I had the paint shift where the B form of the book case from HEL would display the books on the side of the book case instead of in the proper position and it would corrupt the night stand if you had used that to take the skin from. It is corrected by the patch. Oh yeah the game saves now without a DEP error, but that is probably because its a new system without DEP enabled across all programs.
