"The Sims 3" Update 1.4

By August 6, 2009

Follow me on:

An update for "The Sims 3" is ready to download. Find the update through the launcher. Game updates can be downloaded automatically if you so choose. Anyone not automatically updates?

How's everyone's experience with the patch? The last patch caused Mac players to not be able to install custom content.

Patching it to 1.4 seems to have disabled the, ahem, anti-blur patch on my copy.

Same here apsaras. I re-installed the patch but it no longer works. I guess I have to get used to the distracting blur now… until someone updates the patch that is.

mollidolli, maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling entire game. Backup your families first.

Wow….I knew there would be probblems with this. Other than the fact that there may be a bug in the patch, it might also be that your computer can no longer read the disc because it doesn’t have the required processor speed. I had this problem at first. If that is the case, there is nothing to be done. Try repeatedly opening and closing your disc drive until you manage to have the game read it.
