Differences between Double Deluxe, Triple Deluxe & Complete Collection[edit source]

I live in the UK and I've never owned the Triple Deluxe or the Complete Collection versions of The Sims, but in the photos of Triple Deluxe on eBay (, the disc labels containing The Sims, Livin' Large and the Deluxe content on the first two discs and the Double Deluxe content on the other disc look significantly newer than the Deluxe Edition and Double Deluxe bonus content discs in Double Deluxe and Mega Deluxe. On the Triple Deluxe discs, is the software newer than the software on the Deluxe Edition discs (i.e.: new loading screen, new game engine version, bug fixes) or are they exactly the same in both compilations?

Also, in the Complete Collection, the wiki states that some Livin' Large and Deluxe Edition content are missing, and that some of the Official Download sets included in the compilation are incomplete. Is there anyone who can provide a list of the missing Livin' Large and Deluxe content and a list of which of the download sets are incomplete and which files would be needed to complete these sets?

Any help would be appreciated on this matter! (Djtechno95 (talk) 21:05, December 11, 2019 (UTC))

After clean installing the Complete Collection and downloading all the 'Get Cool Stuff' packs from The Sims Depot I have observed the following -

The Complete Collection is missing the following packages:

DoubleDeluxe1, DoubleDeluxe2, DoubleDeluxe3, GreenBedroomSet(McDonalds bedroom set), IntelComputer_international, McFoodCart_International, PepsiMachine1, PetSkinsPack1, PetSkinsPack2

I assume that the object packages were left out due to licensing problems or prevention thereof but I cannot understand why the pet skins were left out. All of the other packs (including the Hot Date Bonus Dates Disk, Sims Extreme Character Pack, SSX skins, and even the Command & Conquer skins) are all included in the Complete Collection.

I recommend another user to compare files between versions as this is not 100% accurate but in the meantime this should inform anyone of what files they need. Reminder that when you install any of these official bonus packs the installer generally does not replace files, so if you are uncertain as to what you do not have, do not be afraid to install them all anyways as there won't be any duplicate files.
