Sims 3, the Help Blog and the Future

Update 02/18/2014

I’m done combing through my blog, I’ve translated a lot of posts the past few days, spamming twitter and my subscribers. I think I have everything but if I need something more for my work over at AnswerHQ there could be another post.

Maybe EA surprises us too. There is still the Store and maybe we get some new issues with that.

Still not sure if there will be any posts on Sims 4. ATM there’s only (no) news and news are pretty much covered at the news sites. Not my focus.

Next to the usual suspects there’s a very good newer site that has all infos on Sims 4. If you don’t know the site yet, check it out: Honeywell’s Sims 4 News

You’re still welcome to comment on this post and if you feel there’s something important missing, let me know.

Happy Simming everyone

Dear Blog readers

I wanted to inform you all how I’m going to continue in the future.

I strongly believe that Tuesday’s Patch 1.66 was the last patch we will get for Sims 3. Because of this, there won’t be any new issues to blog about (This is purely an assumption on my part that has not be confirmed by EA in any way. Should EA give us another patch, I will of course inform).

I will use the coming weeks to go through all my blog posts and make sure the info is current. Of course there’s still old problems in here that I won’t delete. Some of them might be fixed, I’m not sure on all of them. I did mark the solved ones accordingly. There are also a few posts I still like to make before I leave this blog as-is (see below). I’m also working with the folks on NRaas to see if there’s anything there that I need to add.

There’s no need to start backing up posts and stuff. I will neither be deleting this blog nor changing the domain.  This blog is a reference for everyone that still enjoys playing Sims 3.

I will leave the the guest book open for the moment but it will be closed in the near future

Store Browser

The Store Browser is no longer updated and provided as-is. Use at your own risk. I can’t provide any support either.

Sims 3 Help

Still glad to help you with your issues on EA’s AnswerHQ and on Twitter. Not sure how active I’ll be on my MyPage or other forums.


I wish everyone a lot of fun with Sims 3 and of course as few problems as possible.

    Hi Crin,
    I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and for all that you have done for those of us who play The Sims 3. I would have been lost without your help.

    Thank you for all your help Crin, you have always been the best resource for technical information in the time I’ve been playing. Good luck, no matter which avenue you follow.

  • Eternally Grateful

    Thank you for making the Sims 3 tolerable and playable over the years. Don’t think I would have continued if it weren’t for wonderful, generous, and patient people like you, Twallan, MTS, and all the other fantastic modders in the Sims universe! Thank you all!! 🙂
